In the upcoming fixture of the UEFA Europa League, Arsenal FC is locking horns with AC Milan in Emirates Stadium after having a decent lead in the first leg of this fixture of this Round of 16 fixtures. Arsene Wegner showed that his men have still some fight left in them before ruling them out on any occasion. The Gunners would try to go for a full defensive approach in this game because they are already leading by two goals and this game would be all about containing the situation.

Arsenal are in the driving seat in this tie after pulling off a very impressive 2-0 win in Milan last week. The Gunners have kept successive clean sheets for the first time since December.
AC Milan have only lost one game since Christmas and that was in the first leg against Arsenal. The Serie A giants have won 11 of their last 15 matches but have left themselves too much to do in the second leg.
With the damage done in the first leg, Arsenal just need to see the tie out at home on Thursday. They were almost made to pay for being complacent against Oestersunds FK in the last round and cannot afford a repeat performance against Milan this time around.
