    • Predictions : International Champions Cup - AC Milan vs Olympiacos

       

      Olympiacos may be the leader in their own league but you just can't deny that AC Milan are a much better squad. AC Milan may have missed the opportunities from last year’s campaign, but looking at their records they are ideally the team who can play for...

      オリンピアコスも自国リーグでは首位に立つ強豪チームとはいえ、ACミランには及ばないと思うわ。昨年から不振に喘いでいるとはいえ、このイタリアの名門は現有戦力でも、これまでの国際大会での経験でも対戦相手となるギリシャ...
