Two of the biggest names in European football will meet at the Santiago Bernabeu for the first back to back encounter between Real Madrid and AC Milan. Both teams have won this competition with a total of 16 European Champions Clubs Cup triumphs between them. Milan will travel to Madrid in search to challenge for a top spot in Group C.
Madrid have been busy buying players this preseason and two of the world’s best players have settled into the Madrid squad with ease. Cristano Ronaldo and Kaka have been scoring goals for Madrid and they look like a formidable opponent at any given day. Their defense is a bit shaky but their attacking forces compensate their mistakes at the back, like in their weekend 4-2 win against Valladolid. Kaka will be looking forward to play against his former team mates and fans. Guti and Ronaldo are ruled doubtful to face Milan while Fernando Gago, Christoph Metzelder and Ruud Van Nistelrooy are out injured.
Milan is struggling in Serie A and that could transpire to their Champions League campaign. They suffered a home defeat to FC Zurich in the last round and that has made Group E wide open to compete for the second spot to qualify for the last 16. The departure of Kaka has really affected the team as other Brazilian players, Ronaldinho and Pato, have not shown their worth yet. They travel to Madrid knowing that things are against them and Coach Leonardo will need at least a point in Madrid to salvage their pride.
Real Madrid are favorites against Milan. They have come out on top in nine out of the eleven occasions in the Santiago Bernabeu. The last affair ended with a 3-1 win to Madrid back in 2002/03 where Raul scored twice. Kaka could haunt his former team so check out Betsson as they are offering 1.45 for a Madrid win.
