AC MILAN WILL FACE ARSENAL IN THE EUROPA LEAGUE OF ROUND 16

Ac Milan will host the first leg of the two-legged tie on Thursday, 8 March 2018 with the second leg to be played on Thursday, 15 March in London at the Emirates Stadium. These two matches will be the 7th and 8th time the two European giants will have played each other in competitive matches. The two teams, right now, have an even record with 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses apiece. Besides the 1995 European Super Cup, Milan faced off against Arsenal in the 2008 and 2012 Champions League. In 2008, Arsenal were able to defeat Milan, however, in the Champions League round of 16 in 2012, Milan won 4-0 at home and held on at the Emirates stadium for a 3-0 loss to move on. The two titans of European football meeting in the Europa League is a bit strange, as just a few years ago, both teams would have been expected to challenge for the European Cup, well at least seven time champion Milan would have been expected to challenge for it at least. Of the remaining teams, this draw will garner the most attention, as the winner of this match will likely be considered favorites going forward.
