AC Milan v Arsenal Team News

The last time an AC Milan side hosted Arsenal was six years ago, when the Rossoneri thumped the Gunners 4-0 to progress to the Champions League quarter finals.

Any win to nil will hand Milan the initiative, but playing at home first has its own pitfalls. On the last three occasions that Milan have hosted the first leg of a post-group stage European knockout tie, the Italians have ended up eliminated.

Arsenal’s record against Italian opposition is impressive. They have won exactly twice the number of games they have lost against Italian clubs, returning a record of: W16, D9, L8. Meanwhile, Milan have an overall win rate of just 34.2% against English clubs.

AC Milan legend Ruud Gullit has warned Arsenal to prepare for a tough clash, saying: “Arsenal is going to face a good team, not a team of stars, not one you identify with certain people, but they have become stronger as a team”.

Players to watch: Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny was on the scoresheet six years ago when Arsenal beat AC Milan 3-0 – albeit in vain. His duel win rate so far this season is 57.6%.

Milan’s number one custodian, Gianluigi Donnarumma, has kept five clean sheets in a row (in all comps.) – the first time in his career that he has achieved such a streak.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

AC Milan (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Rodríguez, Romagnoli, Bonucci, Calabria; Bonaventura, Biglia, Kessié; Calhanoglu, Cutrone, Suso.

Arsenal (4-3-3): Ospina; Kolasinac, Koscielny, Mustafi, Chambers; Wilshere, Xhaka, Ramsey; Özil, Welbeck, Mkhitaryan;

Injured or Suspended Players:

AC Milan: Andrea Conti.

Arsenal: Santi Cazorla, Alexandre Lacazette, Héctor Bellerín, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

The Rossoneri have scored first and/or scored a first half winner in 11 out of their last 14 games. It has been a long time since Arsenal last tasted any form of European glory, winning the UEFA Cup Winners Cup in 1994. Milan, meanwhile, are without a major European trophy since 2007.

Given the huge difference in form between these two sides, we think Milan are really good value for a victory in this game. The hosts have improved their form thanks to some strong defensive displays.
