The Europa League comes back this week on Thursday and the Arsenal Team will be travelling to Italy to face their round of 16 opponents AC Milan who are currently on un beaten run of un beaten record 13 games.
The gunners travel to Italy hoping to register an away win because this is the only competition that they seem to still be in the race for it and the biggest advantage of winning Europa League is that it offers an automatic qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
The gunners come into this match with the agony of losing the last four matches and are this Thursday playing against a top team which is considered to be one of the most successful team in the history of the European football. The gunners were drawn with AC Milan after beating Ostersunds in the round of 32 and the manager of the Milan manager was quoted. saying “ I feel sorry for Arsenal ” meaning he wasn’t worried that will be facing the North London club.( AC Milan Squad / Getty)
The gunners have been under performing in the recent weeks which has brought to life the discussion of whether it is time for Arsene Wenger to retire or not but most gooners believe that the French man could finally get fired if they drop out of the Europa League.
Most football analysts believe that the gunners shouldn’t be afraid of the Milan club because it isn’t great as it was before in the past decades where it was competiting with top clubs like Barcelona but it has also lost it’s rhythm over the years just like Arsenal.
