In their turn, AC Milan have failed last autumn which leaded to the head-coach’s replacement and Gennaro Gattuso’s appointment at the vacant position. The vigorous coach has stroked life into the team and at the moment the undefeated streak of the Italian club counts for eight encounters covering four wins with four losses and has been lasting since the 27th of December 2017. “I Rossoneri” drifted up to the seventh place in the Serie A standings with 38 points taken and 34-30 goal difference, having got back into the hunt for the next season’s UEFA Champions League. The side’s unbeaten away run consists of four battles which include two victories and two draws.
The rivals have never met before. Ludogorets will only begin their football year while the Italians have taken already a good pace due to their permanent participation in the official fights. The clubs’ class and ambitions are also incomparable, therefore, the visitors must extend their undefeated series in Bulgaria.
Prediction for the match: AC Milan to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
