AC Milan vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview




Man United

18 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET Europa League San Siro

Stadio San Siro will host Thursday’s Europa League clash between Milan and Manchester United, the two European giants. 

The Rossoneri suffered a heart-breaking 1-0 loss to Napoli at the weekend, and, as a result, their Serie A title hopes are ruined. 

Both Ismael Bennacer and Mario Mandzukic remain in the recovery room, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is rated doubtful for the match.

Man Utd, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Milan in the first leg, but Stefano Pioli’s men eventually scored a late equalizer at Old Trafford. 

Yet another close encounter is on the cards in Milano, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. 

Martial is rated doubtful for the game, while Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani should be fit to face the Rossoneri. Experienced midfielder Juan Mata, on the other hand, remains in the recovery room.

Team News:

Milan's main man Ibrahimovic would dearly love to line up against his former employers this week after missing the first leg, but the 39-year-old - who has just earned a recall to the Sweden national team - may only be considered for a spot on the bench after overcoming a thigh problem.

However, two players who missed the first leg in Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez are both back in the fold for the hosts, but Ante Rebic's return against Napoli ended on a sour note as he was sent off - and subsequently hit with a two-game domestic ban - for insulting an official.

Franck Kessie caught the eye at Old Trafford with his assured display in midfield, and the Ivory Coast international could find himself alongside Soualiho Meite this week if Sandro Tonali once again drops down to the substitutes bench.

As for United, Cavani, Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek are all in the travelling party after overcoming various injuries, but the latter is supposedly intent on heading for the exit door after struggling to get a look-in when fully fit.

Anthony Martial's absence against West Ham depleted Solskjaer's striking options further and he has not been passed fit for this game, while Eric Bailly will not be involved either.

David de Gea has completed a mandatory isolation period after returning from Spain to be with his newborn child, but Henderson is likely to reprise his role in between the sticks in any case.

AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Hernandez; Kessie, Meite; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic; Leao

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
