Balancing commitments and a UCL hangover: Can AC Milan win the Europa League?

By SempreMilan -

Italian Serie A side AC Milan crashed out of the Champions League in the group stage, but because they finished third in their group, they were given a lifeline in European football and qualified for the playoff knockout round of the Europa League. 

Let’s dive straight in to discover Milan’s chances of winning the Europa League based on the latest average odds from today’s most trusted online bookmaker.

Can AC Milan win the Europa League?

The quickest, easiest, and most reliable way to find out just how likely it is that Italian Serie A side AC Milan can win the Europa League outright would be to look at the latest odds-on trusted iGaming sites like Unibet, which is known for having some of European football’s most competitive odds. 

There are 24 teams still left in the tournament, but instead of listing the odds for all of the teams, here are the latest odds for the three odds-on favourites and the least favourite team. 

It’s good news for Milan fans, who are currently the third odds-on favourite team to win the tourney outright. The latest odds are as follows:

➤ Team: Liverpool (current odds-on favourite team to win the UEFA Champions League outright). Fractional odds: 9/4. Decimal odds: 3.25. American/moneyline odds: +225. Implied probability rate (IPR): 30.80%

➤ Team: Bayern Leverkusen. Fractional odds: 11/2. Decimal odds: 6.50. American/moneyline odds: +550. IPR: 15.40%

➤ Team: AC Milan. Fractional odds: 9/1. Decimal odds: 10.00. American/moneyline odds: +900. IPR: 10.00%

➤ Team: Qarabağ (least favourite team to win). Fractional odds: 150/1. Decimal odds: 151.00. American/moneyline odds: +15,000. IPR: 0.70%

Based on these odds, Liverpool would be a safer bet. However, optimistic AC Milan fans will be happy with these odds. 

Can AC Milan win Serie A?

If we look at the latest Serie A odds, we can see that rivals Inter are the odds-on favourite to win the 2023/24 campaign outright, and AC Milan are only the third odds-on favourites to win. The latest odds, which are subject to change at any time, look like this:

➤ Team: Inter (current odds-on favourite team to win Serie A 2023/24 outright). Fractional odds: 1/50. Decimal odds: 1.02. American/moneyline odds: -5,000. Implied probability rate (IPR): 98.00%

➤ Team: Juventus. Fractional odds: 20/1. Decimal odds: 21.00. American/moneyline odds: +2,000. IPR: 4.80%

➤ Team: AC Milan. Fractional odds: 33/1. Decimal odds: 34.00. American/moneyline odds: +3,300. IPR: 2.90%

➤ Team: Udinese (least favourite). Fractional odds: 4,500/1. Decimal odds: 4,501.00. American/moneyline odds: +450,000. IPR: 00.00%

The important thing to remember is that no bets are guaranteed to return a profit, no matter how certain the odds may seem. In other words, only spend money you can afford to lose when betting on sports, just in case. 

Upcoming fixtures

On Wednesday, 15th February, AC Milan played Rennes at home in the first leg of the playoff knockout stage in the Europa League, and then on Sunday, 18 February, they are back for domestic action in a league tie against Monza away. 

Their next game is the second leg in the Europa League against Rennes. If they can beat Rennes by goal difference or by winning both fixtures, they will advance to the Europa League round of 16. 

Where are AC Milan in the league?

AC Milan (52 points) are currently in third place in the league, below second-place Juventus (53 points) and league leaders Inter Milan (60 points). They have played 24 games, won 16, drawn 4, lost 4, scored 47 and conceded 27, which gives them a +20 goal difference (GD). 

They still have a chance of winning the league, but it’s less likely to happen compared to their chances of winning the Europa League.
