Both clubs have rich histories domestically and in Europe and are keen to replicate those successes in the present. United are second-placed in the Premier League behind rivals Man City, while Milan occupy second spot in Serie A behind rivals Inter. A league title looks more likely for Milan than United this season, while each team will fancy their chances of going all the way in the Europa League if they are to beat the other here in the last 16. Milan have never lifted this trophy, which United won for the first – and so far only – time in 2017. The Italian club are one of the most successful outfits in the history of European football, though, with their seven European Cup / Champions League titles putting them second in the all-time winners list behind Real Madrid.

United, meanwhile, are three-time champions in that competition, where both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and Stefano Pioli’s would love to be next season. Whether or not either coach can guide their players to the Europa League trophy this term, the Champions League likely awaits for both sides next season. But the managers will still be desperate for silverware sooner rather than later to prove that their club is on the right path to recapturing former glories, and a first-leg win tonight could be crucial in that venture. Follow live updates from Man United vs AC Milan below.

Follwoing this game, Arsenal take on Olympiacos in the first leg of their Europa League clash. Here’s what Mikel Arteta had to say about the Gunners’ ambitions this season:



I am very positive – there is still a lot to play for. What we need is to put four or five wins in a row, if we are able to do that then things are going to look very different in two or three weeks’ time.

“If we don’t, obviously we don’t have a chance because when we have had an opportunity to do it we haven’t done it consistently enough.”
