18th March 2021 – 21:00, Stadio San Siro, Milano
Milan will take on Manchester United in the Europa League eight-finals second leg match. Both teams will search for a victory, as they are one of the major favorites for winning this competition.
Milan vs Manchester United Match Preview & Team News
Milan managed to secure a positive result from the first leg thanks to Simon Kjaer’s stoppage-time equalizer. The hosts don’t have the pressure of chasing the result, but it doesn’t mean it is going to be easy for them. Stefano Pioli’s side heads to this game after losing a derby match against Napoli last weekend. That defeat affected their title bid severely, and they are now nine points behind Inter. Considering their recent form, Milan is far from challenging Scudetto, and they should focus on remaining in the top four. Napoli is now only six points behind and with one game in hand. Rossoneri failed to celebrate at Stadio San Siro on the previous four occasions, and they desperately need a win at the home ground. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the lads had many troubles eliminating Red Star Belgrade in the last round, despite having an extra player in both legs. Milan needs to put a very disciplined performance to secure a place in the quarter-finals.
Manchester United extended its unbeatable streak after beating West Ham United last weekend. The away side remained second in the Premier League table but still very far from the title battle. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has been involved in many draw matches during this streak and spilled important points. However, David de Gea conceded only once in the previous six games, and the Red Devils are very hard to crack. The fact that Manchester United still hasn’t lost on the road this season encourages the away side’s fans. If they can put a similar performance to that one against Manchester City, the visitors will progress to the next round.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
This game can go either way, but we still think Manchester United is closer to the victory. The Red Devils are in a much better momentum, and they should stay in the competition.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have been involved in many low-scoring games lately. It is going to be a tight clash in which we don’t expect to see more than two goals in total.
