Europa League Tips: AC Milan too good for Gunners


IT’S likely only a Europa League win will save Arsene Wenger’s job but his side face a last-16 exit against AC Milan.

The Gunners have lost four in a row for only the second time under the Frenchman and tonight travel to a side that’s won six on the bounce without conceding.

Arsenal’s latest loss was a shocker at Brighton and that followed back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Man City.

Milan are roaring up the table under Rino Gattuso who has transformed the side after replacing Vincenzo Montella.

He’s guided them to the Final of Coppa Italia and their last six they’ve beaten Roma, Lazio and Inter so should be too good for the Gunners.

Wenger isn’t helped by the absence of ineligible Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and injured Alex Lacazette so will rely even more on Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Milan are full of confidence and should win tonight at 6-5 with Betway and qualify at 23-20 with boylesports.

Arsenal are 14-5 with bet365 to win in Italy but 4-5 favourites to qualify at Marathonbet.

Best bets from the other ties could be Sporting to beat Viktoria Plzen and Borussia Dortmund to edge out Red Bull Salzburg.

Dortmund’s Austrian boss Peter Stoger is unbeaten in 10 and while there are five draws in there they should take care of a side weaker than the best the Bundesliga has to offer.

The Germans are a best 11-20 at bet365 while Sporting are 4-9 so a double pays 13-10 with Marathonbet.

Zenit beat Celtic in the last round without impressing and I’d be confidently on Leipzig if it wasn’t for a form slump that has seen them lose three out of four. The Germans should edge it and are 8-11 at Marathonbet.

Off-form Lyon could struggle at CSKA Moscow but Lazio should see off Dinamo Kiev at home.

Marseille v Athletic Bilbao is tough to call but could see both teams score at 19-20 with William Hill.

Atletico Madrid are the shortest-priced side tonight at just 1-4 with bet365 to beat Lokomotiv Moscow. Antoine Griezmann is in good form and worth a look at 16-5 at McBookie and BetVictor to score first.

    RB Leizpig – Zenith – Leipzig + BTTS, Dortmund could be a surprising 1-1 draw, Sporting is a trash, I prefer Over 2.5 line, Lazio to win, Marseille BTTS of course
