Lille vs. AC Milan Match Analysis and Prediction

Lille remains on a mission to relive their historic win at the San Siro when they welcome side AC Milan to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The Europa League match schedules for Thursday with kickoff at 8:55 pm.

The two European giants currently occupy the top spots in the group, and a winner in this tie will make it through the knockout stages.

Lille looked fearful of an in-form AC Milan side ahead of their trip to San Siro for the reverse fixture. However, the French side shocked the Serie A side with a 3-0 victory handing their campaign’s first defeat.

Highly-rated Yusuf Yazici made a mark at the San Siro, netting a hat-trick, his second hat-trick in the 2020-21 Europa League. The first hat-trick was during their triumphant win against Sparta Prague on matchday one.

The win at San Siro ended Lille’s three consecutive draws. However, Christopher Galtier’s men suffered a shocking defeat to Brest following their successful exploits at Rossoneri. The Les Dogues responded with a 4-1 thrashing of Lorient on their return fixture.

On the other hand, before their shocking defeat at San Siro, Milan won ten of their opening 11 games for their 2020-21 campaign. Stefano Pioli might consider the loss as a minor blip with a major focus on making it to the knockout stages. Zlatan Ibramohivic is currently in the form with ten league goals.
