Who qualifies tonight in an intense Europa league match between AC Milan and Manchester United.
The host were without their star man, Zlatan in the ist leg of last 16 tie that ended 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. A goalless draw would therefore be enough for Milan to guarantee progression within 90 minutes, but the fact they have registered just one clean sheet from their previous eight Uefa Europa league proper home games is concerning.
The visitors are on an impressive run of 12 unbeaten competitive matches. And they are also unbeaten in their last five European away fixtures versus Italian oppositions prior to their visit to San Siro.
The Gunners will welcome Olympiacos Piraeus at the Emirates Stadium tonight. Arteta and his men are enjoying a fine run at the Emirates this year.
Arsenal have suffered only one defeat at Emirates Stadium this year against the league leaders, Manchester City. The Gunners are currently the highest scoring side in Europa league this season (27).
Whilst Olympiacos bounced back from that first leg defeat with an expected league victory, this is a tougher assignment given that they were eliminated from the Europa league last 16 in their three prior appearances.
