AC Milan to dominate in Dublin
Shamrock Rovers’ clash with AC Milan in Dublin this week has created quite a buzz in the Irish capital, though the hosts are expected to struggle to compete with their most illustrious visitors from Italy.
Having finished the 2019/20 campaign with a 13-match unbeaten streak, the Rossoneri enjoyed a productive pre-season program, winning four out of four friendlies ahead of their return to competitive action.
An increasingly potent Milan rattled the net three or more times in seven of their final 13 matches of the previous season, and against a vastly inferior Shamrock Rovers outfit this week, the Milanese giants should find plenty of joy in the final third again.
Facing opponents of this caliber is a rare occurrence for Rovers, and we expect the gap in quality between the teams to be reflected come a full time in Dublin. With that considered Milan looks excellent value in the -2.0 handicap market, while our correct score prediction backs the Italians to run out comfortable 3-0 victors.
