Time for Europa League qualifying round and I choosed a match between Milan and Craiova where I see value for asian handicap -1.5. AC Milan is absolutely favourite to win this match and they will win this one easily in my opinion. I will explain why.

Last years for "rossoneri" were very disappointing with a lot of unexpected losses especially when playing in Europe. Also, they didn't play even Europa League last season as they have finished 10th in the 2014-2015 season. In the last year things have changed (even if their last season did not live up to fans expectations) as they were able to qualify at least for a Europa League playoffs rounds finishing 6th in Serie A (they had one point more than their big rivals, Inter Milan).

In April AC Milan were purchased by Yonghong Li and this summer, happened what every Milan fan was expecting.
In fact, they bought a lot of good players...Musacchio, Calhanoglu, Andrè Silva, Kessie and Bonucci are the key players bought for the new season.
After this "transfer window", entushiasm is incredible in Milan. About 60.000 fans are expected to be tomorrow in San Siro to watch the second leg against Craiova. This is just ridicolous especially because this is only an Europa League playoff match!! After a lot of bad years, Milan have a chance to compete again in Europe and the fans will be an huge boost for the home side tomorrow.

First leg finished 1-0. It was not an easy match for "rossoneri" as that was only their first official match of the season and it's not easy for every team to play in Romania (Bilbao even drew against Dinamo Bucaresti last week) especially in this part of the season where everything is possible.

It's true that they have an advantage, but Milan will try to close the game and to build a good momentum with their fans preparing the new season. This is already a key game for AC Milan and they can't fail this one. As you surely know, there is big difference between italian and romanian football and we should see that tomorrow on the pitch.

There's big difference between these two teams...Craiova is not accustomed to play in these kind of scenarios and they will try only to not concede and to not lose this game by high margin of difference. They played good in the first leg but story will change today.

Milan will be in a better form and they will play in front of their fans, in their stadium.
I don't like to bet on Europa League matches but I will make an excepcion for this match. I will bet on AC Milan to win with asian handicap -1.5 this match.
