Tip Arsenal - AC Milan
It looks as if Arsenal will have to win the Europa League if they want to return to the Champions League next season. They are looking good for a place in the last eight having gone to Milan last week and beating the Italian side 2-0, That was a welcome return to form for the Gunners and they followed it up with a 3-0 home win over Watford at the weekend. Arsene Wenger will again play a weakened side but hopefully their strength in depth should be enough to get them a win. Arsenal have only lost three home games this season and the confidence gained not just by two wins but a couple of clean sheets will help Arsenal a great deal. It's Milan who have all the problems coming into this tie having to work out just how to claw back the 2-0 deficit. They will be on the look-out for goals needing at least two just to give them the chance of extra-time and that;s if they can keep a clean sheet themselves. The Italian side have only won one of their last three away games in the Europa League and put in a dreadful performance in the first leg. Arsenal can't be trusted that much so low stakes for this one but they should be able to get a home win.
Key points Arsenal - AC Milan

Conclusion Arsenal - AC Milan
This isn't a game to be staking a massive amount of money on with both teams not that dependable. Arsenal have won two games in four days and some of their lost confidence should have been restored. Milan were terrible in the first leg and have to come out attacking in this second leg with a 2 goal deficit to somehow claw back. Go for Arsenal to get the win in what could be an open game.
