BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Thursday night, Milan host Man United at the San Siro in the second leg of their Europa League fixture, with the score at 1-1.
The Rossoneri were the better side in the first leg at Old Trafford and scored what could turn out to be a vital goal in the 92nd minute. They are going through as it stands but will expect United to get at least one.
AC followed up the draw though with a 1-0 loss to Napoli on the weekend. This is a huge game for them against United, but one which they are going to have to put in a similar performance to last week to win.
Against United, AC welcome back Ibrahimovic who will be desperate to score against his former side. They created several good chances in the last game and someone like the Swedish striker would be someone you would want on the end of them.
The task for Solskjaers team is a lot bigger after they conceded that late goal. It was a poor goal to concede and one that probably means they are going to have to go to Milan and score twice.
United bounced back though from the disappointing result and beat West Ham 1-0. Another positive this week for them was the number of players they should have back for this one. Martial, Cavani, Van De Beek and De Gea could all feature.
The visitors will need to be more clinical in front of goal compared to the last game having missed to sitters. We expect a fast start for them with a changed line up to the one that played last week. Rashford is back fit now and should lead the line from the start.
Milan are missing three players, with Daniel Maldini, Mario Manduzic and Alessio Romagnoli all look set to miss out.
Mata and Jones are out. Pogba, De Gea, Van De Beek, Martial and Cavani are all touch and go.
