Europa League Draw: Arsenal Travel To Italy To Face AC Milan In Last 16 Clash

Arsenal take on AC Milan, a side that dumped them out of the Champions League in 2012, with Gennaro Gattuso’s men at home in the first leg of the Europa League.

The gunners have been drawn against Serie A side AC Milan in the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Gunners narrowly overcame Ostersunds in the second leg of their last-32 tie, with Sead Kolasinac’s goal ensuring that, despite being beaten 2-1 on the night , they advanced through 4-2 on aggregate.

Milan, meanwhile, were comfortable winners over two legs as they claimed a 4-0 aggreage win over Ludogorets – Fabio Borini scoring the only goal of the night at San Siro in the return meeting on February 22.

Arsene Wenger’s side last faced Milan in the Champions League back in 2012, with the Premier League side dumped out 4-3 on aggregate despite winning the second leg of that last-16 tie 3-0.

Laurent Koscielny is the only Arsenal player that still plays for the club since that last meeting – the French defender was even on the scoresheet that night, along with Tomas Rosicky and Robin van Persie.

Other top fixtures include Dortmund vs Salzburg and RB Leipzig vs Zenith.

The first leg of the matches would be played on March 8 with the return leg scheduled for March 15.
