Arsenal v AC Milan: Wenger’s men can’t afford to slip up now
Winning the Europa League is the only thing which can salvage Arsenal’s season, and the Gunners can take a big step towards doing that tonight.
Arsene Wenger’s side host AC Milan in the second leg of their round of 16 tie, having produced a solid performance to win 2-0 at the San Siro.
It gives the Gunners the upper hand, but they remain questionable at the back. An away goal for Milan could be all it takes to spark another capitulation.
The odds have Arsenal as Evens favourites to win the match, with their Serie A visitors the 12/5 outsiders.
Arsenal built on that San Siro success by seeing off Watford 3-0 on Sunday, while Milan grabbed a stoppage time winner at Genoa.
That result meant the Italian side are now unbeaten in eight on the road. And they’ll fancy their chances of grabbing an away goal with the Gunners conceding 13 in their last seven home games.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been enjoying a good run of late. The Armenian bagged the opener in Milan and scored again on Sunday.
Danny Welbeck is set to lead the line once again, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ineligible.
Milan’s most-likely scorers last time out were Giacomo Bonaventura and Suso.
