Man United vs AC Milan Predictions


Man United's impressive defensive record of four clean sheets in a row comes up against a free-scoring AC Milan side which has netted 2+ goals in 7 of their last 10 away matches. I'm expecting Milan to score in a draw at Old Trafford. 

  • Man United have drawn 3 of their last 4 matches (all competitions).
  • Man United are undefeated in 23 of their last 25 matches (Europa League).
  • AC Milan are undefeated in 10 of their last 11 matches (Europa League).
  • AC Milan have drawn their last 2 matches (Europa League).

Head to Head


These two sides last met in a competitive fixture in 2010 when Man United won 4-0 at Old Trafford in the UEFA Champions League last 16.

The first leg of the tie had also gone the way of United, who won 3-2 in Milan. 

They have met since in the International Champions Cup pre-season friendlies in 2018 and 2019. Both were won on penalties by Man United after draws.

Man United Form


Man United ended cross-town rivals Man City's 21-game winning run when recording a 2-0 victory in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

Bruno Fernandes slotted home a second minute penalty and Luke Shaw scored in the second-half for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side.

It was a fourth clean sheet in a row and a welcome win for United following a hat-trick of 0-0 draws against Real Sociedad, Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

United's 4-0 demolition of Sociedad in the first leg had all but sewn up their spot in the last 16 of the Europa League.

Man United Team News


Marcus Rashford is ruled out after damaging ankle ligaments in the win over Man City.

Mason Greenwood looks set to return in his place, while Alex Telles is likely to start at left-back with Luke Shaw given a rest.

David De Gea is absent still, although goalkeeper Dean Henderson would have started in the Europa League anyway.

Midfielder Paul Pogba and centre-back Phil Jones remain sidelined, while midfielder Donny van de Beek and forward Edinson Cavani may not be risked.

AC Milan Form


AC Milan needed away goals to get past Red Star in the last round. A 2-2 draw in Belgrade was followed by a 1-1 stalemate at home against 10-man Red Star.

The two draws form part of a run of just one defeat in the last six games for Stefano Pioli's side.

They lost the Milan derby 3-0 to Inter in between the two Europa League fixtures.

But since then they have won away at Roma (2-1) and Verona (2-0) on Sunday, as well as drawn at home to Udinese.

AC Milan Team News


Defender Theo Hernandez, midfielders Ismael Bennacer and Hakan Calhanoglu and forwards Mario Mandzukic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic are all out.

Midfielder Sandro Tonali could make his return from injury at Old Trafford.

Verdict

Milan know how to find the back of the net. I'm expecting them to finally breach this Man United defence and return to Italy with a draw.
