AC Milan – Atletico Madrid | 28/09/2021 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

AC Milan and Atletico Madrid will both go in search of their first wins of the 2021-22 Champions League during Tuesday’s Group B battle at San Siro. Stefano Pioli’s side lost 3-2 to old rivals Liverpool in the opening matchweek, while Atletico failed to fire in a goalless draw with Porto.

AC Milan’s fans are about to hear the UEFA Champions League (UCL) anthem at home for the first time since 2013/14, when their team was knocked out of the competition in the Round of 16 by none other than Atlético Madrid! Though eager for revenge, the hosts have lost three of their last six European home fixtures (W2, D1, L3 – excluding qualifiers).

After winning each of their three 2021/22 Serie A home games by at least two-goal margin, Milan have the momentum to avenge their 3-2 loss at Liverpool on UCL matchday one. However, they have also won just one of their last ten home European encounters with Spanish opposition (W1, D5, L4).

Despite conceding first in four of their previous six outings (W2, D3, L1), and suffering their first competitive defeat last weekend at Alavés, Atlético must regroup and make a statement of intent after their goalless draw against Porto on matchday one. That result started a bleak period, which saw the ‘Colchoneros’ fail to score in three of their previous four matches.

Diego Simeone’s men have won exactly one away match at the UCL group stage in each of their last three appearances, but should they succeed here, it will probably be thanks to a late goal. That’s because their three La Liga away victories this season have all seen the winning goal arrive after the hour mark!
