Likely Winner:

AC Milan can confirm their Champions League spot with a win against Cagliari in the MIL vs CAG Today Match Prediction. Should they fail to do that, they will have the difficult task of beating Atalanta on the final day of the season. This game should be a win for AC Milan as they have the better players and are in form as well. Cagliari has been in great form too, of late, but it will not be easy to stop a side like the Rossoneri. They can pretty much confirm their stay in Italy’s top-flight as well with a win or even a draw in this game.
