The 2nd coming of King Henry has been a dream across media circles. But will the iconic Frenchman engineer a fitting farewell in Italy, to add to his dream debut at the Emirates? His adoring fan following will be desperate to catch a final glimpse of va va voom, before he bids au revoir and returns to New York after the tie.
Arsenal’s visit to the San Siro to face a rejuvenated Rossoneri rounds off week one of the Champions League knockout phase. The Gunners will be buoyed by their recent displays against Blackburn and Sunderland, but face a tough test against the Serie A leaders, who beat the freeze to secure an away win over Udinese at the weekend.
For Milan, this is their chance to take revenge on the Premier League. They have fallen to English opposition in each of their last 3 Champions League last 16 matches, failing to score on 5 out of 6 occasions. However, the Gunners have conceded 26 times already in their 13 away league games and line up without Per Mertesacker, who has an ankle injury. Surely Ibrahimovic and co will find a way to score?
Match Tip: Score draw
