AC Milan vs Newcastle Predictions
Game Result – Draw @ 3.60 (13/5)
Newcastle finally broke their three-game losing streak and beat Brentford in their last match, while AC Milan got their first loss of the season against Inter after having a perfect start in Serie A. The Magpies rested some players for this game, so they will be ready for this matchup, but the Rossoneri have to bounce back from their terrible loss in the Derby.
As explained in our UCL 23/24 predictions, AC Milan will have good qualifying chances from this group, but this will be a tough game against a hungry Newcastle team, so a draw is a fair result for both.
Both Teams to Score @ 1.62 (5/8)
The thing that has been working for both teams so far in the season is the offense. Newcastle failed to score only once in their first five matches in the EPL, while Milan are on a five-game scoring streak right now. The Rossoneri have conceded seven goals in their last three matches as well, while it’s hard to believe Newcastle can keep a cleansheet in the away game.
Alexander Isak to Score @ 2.90 (19/10)
Alexander Isak got a complete rest in Newcastle’s last game in the EPL ahead of this match. The Swedish striker has two goals for the Magpies so far this season, and he will have some good scoring chances against this shaky Milan defense. The Rossoneri conceded five goals in their last game, one of which was from a penalty, and Isak is Newcastle’s specialist from the spot when Wilson isn’t playing.
