It's tough to predict from here who will claim the top-two spots in UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group E, with all four teams separated by just two points. AC Milan find themselves locked on four points after a perfect split of results (W1, D1, L1) in the group stage so far, but a return to the San Siro where Milan beat Juventus 2-0 in Serie A (SA) at the weekend should instil some belief the Italian giants can avenge last week's 3-0 UCL defeat against Chelsea in the reverse.
That defeat in London made it four-successive losses against Premier League (PL) opposition for Milan, and with six deteats from their last seven occasions hosting English sides, it's hard to see that run ending here. A record of five wins from six (L1) in all competitions at home this season can build some belief, but with just two clean sheets across those games, Milan's attack may need to be firing on all cylinders.
Like their hosts, Chelsea collected a domestic home win at the weekend, cruising past Wolves 3-0 in the Premier League despite fielding a heavily rotated side.
