Thursday's Europa League qualifying clash between Shamrock Rovers and AC Milan looks like a complete mismatch. Stephen Bradley knows his players are aware too, but they host one of Europe's sleeping giants this week. It doesn't get much better than this.

Milan expect to inflict Shamrock's first defeat since September 23 last year – a year ago next week, in fact. Although the new Serie A campaign doesn't begin until this weekend, the Rossoneri are unbeaten since play resumed in June (17 games, including friendlies)

Will they continue their impressive run away in Dublin here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Shamrock Rovers vs AC Milan Betting Tips

Milan rounded up a successful pre-season campaign with a 3-1 win over relegated Brescia on September 12. Goals from Franck Kessie, Lorenzo Colombo and Samu Castillejo helped them to a 3-1 win, providing more match sharpness ahead of an intriguing competitive return.

Intriguing because they travel to play Shamrock Rovers for the first time, an Irish side that needed extra time and penalties to squeeze past Finland's FC Ilves in R1 last month.

Watch how both teams fare, especially a Shamrock team that lost at this stage of the competition in 2019-20. Granted, that was over two legs and they won the first 2-1 against Apollon Limassol (lost 5-3 AET on aggregate).

Nonetheless, it's a timely reminder that they will venture into new territory with a shock victory – something that isn't impossible given home comforts. Milan technical director Paolo Maldini told Sky Italia: “It's a game that scares us a lot. They [Rovers] are a team that is doing well, first in their league, and we have some [injury] problems.”

Among them include Rafael Leao, Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Conti – while Ante Rebic is sidelined through suspension.

Shamrock Rovers vs AC Milan Correct Score Predictions

Just like Tottenham's away trip, anything besides a Milan win – regardless of performance – will be a big surprise across Europe and rightly so. The visitors are serious about returning to Europe's top table and can't afford to lose matches like these against heavy underdogs, no matter the occasion.
