Milan vs. Chelsea Betting Tips and Predictions
Correct Score 1-2 @ 9.00 (8/1)
Chelsea is the better side, and they showed the difference in quality during the first leg. The Blues are likely to continue their winning form, but it should be a close contest. Chelsea should outscore the hosts, but Milan should get a goal at home. A bet on Chelsea to win 2-1 is a valuable option in this match.
Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.91 (10/11)
Chelsea and AC Milan are in good goalscoring form, and with both teams needing three points, this should be an open game. Chelsea’s last three games have ended with three goals. AC Milan’s games this season have also produced a lot of goals. Four of the last five Milan games have seen three goals or more.
Both Teams to Score @ 1.73 (8/11)
While the BTTS bet has looked good for the first game, the same option for the second one is also approved. Milan finished the game in London with an xG of 0.68 and had to score at least once. Under Potter, Chelsea shows a better attacking game and will surely want to win the game, so they will attack a lot too. It can be a repetition of the Milan v Napoli game a few weeks ago when the teams attacked a lot and scored both, while luck became a decisive element for the final score.
