After a hard-fought 3-2 win against Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt in their Europa League third-round qualifier on Thursday evening, Milan return to league action this weekend. They face Portuguese side Rio Ave with a group stage berth up for grabs next week, but before then, an away clash with newly-promoted Crotone awaits.

Sunday's hosts were comprehensively beaten 4-1 by Genoa last week, where there were four different scorers. How will the league's newcomers respond against even better opposition here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Crotone vs AC Milan Betting Tips

Hakan Calhanoglu had two goals and an assist during a brilliant individual display on Thursday night, as Milan were made to work hard against Bodo/Glimt. After an impressive pre-season earlier this month, talented teenager Lorenzo Colombo (18) also got on the scoresheet in his first senior start.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao (both diagnosed with COVID-19) sidelined, while Ante Rebic (suspension) also missed out, the youngsters made their mark. Fellow teenager Daniel Maldini came on, while highly-rated midfielder Sandro Tonali (20, on-loan from Brescia) also got more minutes under his belt.

It'll be interesting to see how Stefano Pioli rotates accordingly, with such little time between matches. Crotone had opportunities despite their heavy defeat to Genoa (13 shots, missed big chance, hit the woodwork) and players need a more clinical edge here.

Emmanuel Riviere, formerly of Newcastle, scored on his debut after sealing a free transfer from Serie B side Cosenza earlier this month. Salvatore Molina and Junior Messias were both dangerous but besides them, they flattered to deceive – Milan pose a more difficult challenge. Will they rise to that or fold under pressure here?

Crotone vs AC Milan Correct Score Predictions

As mentioned, Milan need to grow accustomed to their quick turnarounds between matches – it's a consequence of Europa League football, which they missed out on last term. If they go deep in that competition, which they should, this will be a regular occurrence.

They've won four of their previous five H2H meetings with Sunday's hosts and it'd be surprising if they dropped points here, given the squad depth at Pioli's disposal.
