AC Milan v Arsenal Tips: More woe for Wenger at the San Siro

| 07.03.2018

Arsenal are on their worst losing run since 2002. So the last thing they need is a trip to in-form AC Milan tonight.

Gennaro Gattuso’s side are unbeaten in 13 matches in all competitions and have won five of their last six. The Gunners, by contrast, have lost four in a row and are facing the prospect of a second consecutive season in the Europa League if they fail to win this year’s competition.

They’re 23/20 to claim a first-leg advantage at the San Siro. You can back Milan at 11/10, with the Draw available at 23/10.

The North Londoners have looked toothless up-front in recent weeks. Arsene Wenger’s side have scored just two goals in their last four matches.

That could be a problem in Italy tonight. Milan have kept six clean sheets in a row in Europe and Serie A combined. They’ve conceded just four goals since before Christmas.

Under 2.5 Goals is available at 20/23. You can double up on that market and get Milan to Win and Under 2.5 Goals at 15/4.

Alternatively, you can back Milan to Win to Nil at 11/4.

Sunderland outcast Fabio Borini has been a big part of the Italian giant’s recent success. The 26-year-old has bagged three goals in his last five matches for I Rossoneri.

He’s 13/2 to Score First this evening, with 23/10 available on him Scoring Anytime.

Teammate Andre Silva is the Europa League’s joint-second top scorer this season with six goals and can be had at 19/10 to add to his tally.

The pair may fancy their chances of breaking the deadlock early on. Arsenal have conceded seven goals before the 30th minute in their last four matches.

Milan to be leading after 15 minutes is 11/2. That reduces to 27/20 for the hosts to be ahead on the half-hour mark.

For the visitors, Alexandre Lacazette is considered the most likely scorer in the absence of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. The Frenchman has plundered nine goals so far this season and is 21/10 to make that ten tonight.

Sead Kolasinac will also likely start at the San Siro and is a long-odds pick at 12/1 to add to his three goals in the UEL already this season.
