The Craiova vs. Milan match will be played on Thursday, July 27, at the Municipal Stadium, Drobeta Turnu Severin. This is the first leg of the third Europa League qualifying round. Both teams start the competition from this phase of qualifying cycle.


  • Craiova recorded only one victory and three defeats in summer friendly matches. However, they are undefeated in the first two games of Romanian Liga 1 in 2017/18 season - they beat Iasi by 2:0 and they recorded a draw against Concordia, the result was 1:1.
  • Milan played three friendly matches during the summer and recorded two victories and one defeat. Their win against Bayern Munich by 4:0 is especially impressive.


This will be the first meeting between these two clubs.


Craiova finished the previous season in the fifth place, and it was one of the most successful seasons in their club history. They will try to stay in the race for the top five this season as well, but it is easier said than done. Craiova will be motivated to show everything they got against Milan, but we have to be realistic - the Italian giants are absolute favorites in the upcoming game.

Milan changed ownership this summer, and the effects are already visible - Milan completely outclassed mighty Bayern Munich in a friendly match! The result was 4:0 and they are waiting for the game against Craiova with massive self-confidence. Also, they spent over 100 million euro on reinforcements and it's not over yet - they are still searching for an attacker! We believe that the Italian team will try to secure their advancement in Romania.

Craiova is facing an almost impossible task - they have to try defeat Milan. On the other hand, Milan is in a fantastic form, and we don't believe they will have any problems against Craiova.
