AC Milan vs Borussia Dortmund Match Analysis & Prediction
28/11/2023 11:00 pm
Locked in a battle to progress from the Champions League’s ‘Group of Death’, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund meet at San Siro on Tuesday night, when both sides will aim to build on wins last time out in Europe.
Dortmund top Group F on seven points following back-to-back victories over Newcastle United, while third-placed Milan sit just two points behind after toppling Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.
With qualification for the Champions League’s last 16 to be decided over the last two matchdays, four clubs are separated by just three points heading into the second-last round of Group F fixtures.
After battling back from behind to defet PSG earlier this month, when goals from Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud secured maximum points, Stefano Pioli’s side know another victory at San Siro would leave them within touching distance of making the knockout stage in successive campaigns.
After they most recently met Milan, in last month’s goalless draw on home turf, Dortmund’s tally of one point from their first two matches left them staring at at early exit.
However, Edin Terzic side have since turned things around, and they reached the Group F summit following successive victories over Newcastle – most recently winning 2-0 in Germany to take charge of their own fate.
Niclas Fullkrug and Julian Brandt scored in either half to secure maximum points against the Magpies, and for the first time in history, BVB have gone four straight Champions League home matches without conceding a single goal.

AC Milan Team News
Having tarnished his 100th Milan appearance by being sent off against Lecce earlier this month, Olivier Giroud can now return to the starting XI after serving a Serie A suspension against Fiorentina.
Such a boost will be welcome by Pioli, who remains without two other forwards, Noah Okafor (hamstring) and Rafael Leao (thigh), due to injury.

Dortmund will be without Felix Nmecha, whose hip injury recently ruled him out of the Germany squad, but Emre Can and Gregor Kobel both overcame fitness concerns to face M’gladbach.
Leading the line up front, Fullkrug has scored in his last three games for BVB, while Donyell Malen should force his way past Jamie Bynoe-Gittens to start in support of the frontman.
