Milan host RB Salzburg on a frenzied Wednesday night at San Siro. Despite the Rossoneri only requiring a draw to qualify for the next stages of the Champions League this season, Stefano Pioli would not mind ensuring a victory and finishing the round of the group-stage matches on a high note.
According to the data from UEFA‘s official website, Milan could qualify for their first knock-out stages in the Champions League since the 2013/14 campaign with a positive result on Wednesday.
Last season, Pioli led the Italian side to their first Scudetto since the 2010/11 season. In the Champions League this term, Milan have amassed seven points from five games with two wins and one draw.
Despite the setbacks that the defending Serie A champions keep getting in terms of injuries, Theo Hernández and co. have sustained admirable consistency across all competitions. In Serie A, Pioli’s side currently stands in the third position on the points table and are considered one of the favourites for the coveted title this time.
