Real Madrid Betting News
Real Madrid haven’t had the pre-season opening tour they were hoping for and new coach Benitez immediately received criticism for the performance against Roma. Real played the first game 0:0 and lost on penalties to Italian squad, but after that they went on to defeat Manchester City by 4:1 and Inter by 3:0 and those convincing displays bought a little peace to Los Blancos. They are certainly a favorite against Milan and they are eager to prove it.
Milan Betting News
Milan is looking to return to the top of Serie A, after several very disappointing seasons. New coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is convinced they have the talent and quality to qualify for Champions League next season, but that will be a very hard task. Milan also defeated Inter in their first match in International Champions League and every time when they beat their biggest rivals, Milan’s squad gets a morale boost, so they are looking forward to compete against Real Madrid, too.
Real Madrid vs Milan Match Preview
Rafa Benitez hinted he will mix his starting lineup up a bit in this match. It is expected that a goalie newcomer from Espanyol, Kiko Casilla, will get his chance between the posts, while players who were loaned out last season and didn’t have enough playing time in Real Madrid recently, such as Casemiro, Cheryshev, Arbeloa, and a newcomer Silva, are all expected to start the game. However, biggest stars Bale and Ronaldo should also start, since Benitez is looking to build best possible partnership between the two.
As for Milan, newly bought attackers Luiz Adriano and Carlos Bacca should be both up front, while Antonio Nocerino, who was given the red card against Inter, won’t feature in this match.
Real is clearly a favorite to win this one, but we are expecting an interesting match.
