Atletico Madrid will hope to exploit their home comfort when they play host to Serie A giants AC Milan at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in UEFA Champions League on Thursday. Atletico will head into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Jagoba Arrasate’s Osasuna in their last La Liga fixture. AC Milan, meanwhile, were beaten 3-4 by Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina in their most recent domestic league match.
So far, AC Milan have failed to do wonders in the European competition as they have accumulated just one point from four games. Atletico also seem out of form in UCL as they have won just one out of their previous four games in the tournament.
The UCL match between Atletico Madrid and AC Milan is slated to begin at 01:30 am (IST).
