AC Milan Preview

AC Milan looked poor towards the end of 2017, but their form in these three months of the new year have been fantastic. AC Milan head into this tie on the back of a 13-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including back-to-back wins against Ludogorets in the Europa League round of 16. The Rossoneri beat Roma on the road a fortnight ago and then managed to win against Lazio in the Coppa Italia a week ago. They are now back on home soil where they have suffered just one defeat in their last eleven competitive fixtures. AC Milan are undefeated in six home games across all competitions, conceding just one goal in the process. Furthermore, AC Milan have won 13 and drawn three of their 16 home games in the Europa League so far. The Rossoneri were unbeaten in their first nine European fixtures this season, but that record ended with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Rijeka on matchday six. AC Milan have qualified from each of their last 13 groups in UEFA competition and have now reached the round of 16 in all but one of their 15 European campaigns this century.

AC Milan Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for AC Milan ahead of this tie.

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal’s crisis continued last weekend as they suffered another defeat, losing 2-1 on the road at Brighton in the Premier League. The Gunners come into this clash on the back of a four-game losing streak across all competitions, which includes a 1-2 home loss against Ostersunds in the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie. They have suffered defeats in each of their last three Premier League games, scoring just once in the process. Arsenal currently lie 6th in the standings with 45 points after 29 rounds, eight points behind the 5th-placed Chelsea. Their away form over the past three months have also been terrible as the Gunners have won just two of their last ten competitive trips. The positive thing is that Arsenal have won three of their four Europa League trips, conceding just three goals in this term. They made their Europa League debut this season and their last European campaign outside the Champions League was the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup, where they lost at penalties against Galatasaray in the final round.

Arsenal Team News

Alexandre Lacazette, Nacho Monreal and Santiago Cazorla are all out through injury, but Gedion Zelalem is back in training.
