UEL Match Preview : Arsenal vs AC Milan (Agg 2-0)

Arsenal are in the driving seat in this tie after pulling off a very impressive 2-0 win in Milan last week. The Gunners have kept successive clean sheets for the first time since December.

AC Milan have only lost one game since Christmas and that was in the first leg against Arsenal. The Serie A giants have won 11 of their last 15 matches but have left themselves too much to do in the second leg.

With the damage done in the first leg, Arsenal just need to see the tie out at home on Thursday. They were almost made to pay for being complacent against Oestersunds FK in the last round and cannot afford a repeat performance against Milan this time around.

TEAM NEWS

Arsenal- Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal have missed Arsenal’s last two matches but have both trained ahead of Thursday’s second leg with AC Milan. Bet now on today’s games on NaijaBet

Shkodran Mustafi was also in training after picking up a groin problem against Watford on Sunday. All three are expected to start in defence along with Laurent Koscielny, who was rested at the weekend.

Danny Welbeck will lead the line with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette unavailable for the home side. Expect a similar XI to the side that beat AC Milan 2-0 in the first leg.

AC Milan- Andrea Conti and Ignazio Abate are the only players expected to miss out for AC Milan on Thursday. Mateo Musacchio will incur a suspension with his next booking.

No changes are expected to the side that lost the first leg 2-0.
