Manchester United will have a tough task at hand when they travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League on Friday, March 19.
Playing the first leg at Old Trafford, the Red Devils led the match until the 92nd minute through an Amad Diallo header before Simon Kjaer leveller made it all to play for in the second leg.
Despite Milan playing the second tie at home with an away goal advantage, the Italian giants haven’t won in their last four home games and have also failed to open their goal-scoring account in four of their last seven games in their backyard. Hence, the Rossoneri manager Stefano Pioli will be expecting a close encounter on Thursday.
To make things more interesting, United come into the fixture at the back of a stupendous away form, which includes a solid 2-0 win away at Manchester City a few weeks back. United’s UEFA Europa League form also stands tall with the Premier League heavyweights losing just two of their last 26 UEL matches.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are also unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions, making them the overwhelming favourites going into the second leg.
AC Milan and Manchester United have clashed 11 times to date, with both teams having five wins each. Watch AC Milan vs Manchester United live!

Milan have secured a massive boost in the second leg given the return of their playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu, left-back Theo Hernandez and winger Ante Rebic to the team.
However, the Serie A giants will be sweating to get their star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic fit for the all-important tie. Apart from him, defender Alessio Romagnoli is struggling to regain fitness.
Among the certain injuries to their squad are Ismael Benancer and Mario Mandzukic, both of whom will miss the important UEFA Europa League fixture.
