AC Milan vs Manchester United Preview
It looked as if United would be taking a slender lead to Italy thanks to Amad Diallo’s strike, but Simon Kjaer’s injury time header means the Red Devils travel to San Siro needing to score – something they have not found particularly easy of late.
In fact, they have found the net just four times in their last six matches in all competitions, although can at least rely on a backline that has kept nine clean sheets in 13 fixtures and conceded only once in the most recent six.
On target just twice in their last four home games but having conceded just five times in six games themselves, Stefano Pioli’s side is likely to keep things tight in an attempt to protect the away-goal advantage.
