Predictions 16.05-19.05.2023

Inter Milan vs AC Milan | Champions League

16/05/2023 20:00

Prediction: 0-1

Based on the fact that AC Milan is currently trailing 2-0 against Inter Milan, it appears that they are facing a formidable opponent. However, they have no choice but to attack aggressively in an attempt to win the match by a margin of two goals and force extra time, or by a margin of three goals or more to secure their spot in Istanbul.

While it may seem difficult for AC Milan to score multiple goals against Inter Milan, there are a few reasons why they should be optimistic. For example, in their previous encounter, Benfica was able to penetrate Inter’s defense and achieve a 3-3 draw in Milan during the earlier phase of the Champions League.

Furthermore, AC Milan’s top scorer, Rafael Leao, was absent from the first game due to an injury but is expected to make his return for Tuesday’s match. This is another reason to be hopeful about the team’s chances.

  • The “No goal” sign occurred in 4 of Inter’s last 5 official matches.
  • The “No goal” also came out in the last matches between the two teams.
  • The second leg matches are always played in a more prudent way, and it will be difficult to see many goals.
  • Milan have conceded only one goal in the last 5 at San Siro.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma | Europa League

Prediction: 2-1

On Thursday, May 18, 2023, José Mourinho’s Roma will be traveling to Leverkusen to play the second leg of the Europa League semi-final at the BayArena. Roma holds a one-goal advantage from the first leg, thanks to Edoardo Bove’s goal. This advantage allows the Giallorossi to approach the match with confidence, although they are aware that the away game in Germany will not be an easy task.

Both teams experienced draws in their most recent league matches. Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen could only manage a 1-1 draw against Stuttgart, while Roma failed to break the deadlock in a goalless draw against Bologna. The Europa League challenge is of utmost importance for Roma, not only in terms of reaching the final but also for securing qualification for the next edition of the Champions League.

In their last four games across the league and cup competitions, Bayer Leverkusen has struggled, with two wins and two defeats. However, their home record has been strong, as they have obtained six positive results, including five victories, in their last seven matches at home. On the other hand, Roma have not won any of their last four away games, but they have managed to secure two draws after suffering two defeats. In their overall form, Roma has won only one of their last six games in all competitions.

The stage is set for an intriguing match at the BayArena, where both teams will be aiming to advance to the final of the Europa League. Leverkusen will be looking to overturn the one-goal deficit and make the most of their home advantage, while Roma will be determined to hold on to their lead and secure a spot in the final. It promises to be a highly competitive encounter between two ambitious sides.

  • There have been 5 under 2.5s in Bayer Leverkusen’s last 5 games and 7 in the last 8.
  • There have been 5 under 2.5s in Roma’s last 5 games.
  • Roma have drawn their last 2 away games.

FC Basel vs Fiorentina | Conference League

18/05/2023 20:00

Prediction: 1-2

Ninety minutes separate Basel and Fiorentina from the Conference League Final. The second leg of the semi-final match will take place on Thursday, May 18th, in Switzerland. In the first leg, Basel made a comeback and won 2-1, giving them the advantage. To advance to the final, Fiorentina must win with a two-goal difference.

The winner of the Basel vs. Fiorentina match will face the winner of the Az Almaar vs. West Ham match in the final.

However, Basel has had a difficult time recently. After their comeback victory in the first leg, they suffered a heavy 6-1 defeat against St. Gallen.

However, they had previously secured victories against Winterthur and Sion.

Prior to that, they had experienced defeats against Basel and Napoli, along with a draw against Salernitana. Overall, it hasn’t been a great period for the Italian team, as they have only won two out of their last nine games.

Now, both teams are focused on the crucial second leg, where Fiorentina needs a strong performance to overturn Basel’s advantage and secure a spot in the Conference League Final.

  • Fiorentina has won all the away games played in the Conference League.
  • The Viola have won all five away games in the Conference League.
  • Basel have not won at home in five games, with three defeats, the last two in a row.
