The odds are giving a slight edge to Atletico Madrid for their Group B match against AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League.

The former turned in an uneventful 0-0 draw against Porto in their opening fixture and while they currently sit top of La Liga, they have exhibited a palpable reliance on late winners thus far this season. 

Atletico are coming off a 1-0 loss at Alaves in domestic play so they are determined not to disappoint their fans for the second straight time.

AC Milan put in a good account of themselves in their 3-2 away defeat to Liverpool, although they did allow their opponents 23 shots on goal during the match. An own goal from Fikayo Tomori gave Liverpool an early lead before Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz struck two minutes apart to put the visitors up at the half.

However, Mo Salah tied the scores shortly after the re-start before Jordan Henderson nailed the game winner in the 69th minute. 

AC Milan have since bounced back in the Serie A with a draw against Juventus (1-1) and back-to-back wins over Venezia (2-0) and Spezia (2-1). 

This is the first meeting between Atletico and AC Milan since the 2014 Champions League where the Spanish side won both matches.

Verdict

The two sides are evenly matched so we are backing a draw in Milan.
