Be brave and back AC Milan to dump out Manchester Utd
AC Milan have staggered since surrendering in the derby last month, while last season’s finalists are in their best form of the season thanks largely to Wayne Rooney.
However, we’re not the sort to go back on our instincts and there are still plenty of reason to have faith in Italy’s Red Devils. Firstly, there’s history: the two teams have met four times in the competition and Milan have progressed each time.
Then there’s the fact that AC Milan have already won away to a Real Madrid side who player for player should have presented a much tougher challenge than Manchester United, while their European away form – unbeaten since October 2007 – means that drawing tonight would not be a disaster.
