Seeing fans hyping up AC Milan vs Arsenal as if its some kind of epic clash when in reality, its a clash of two banterous sides that’ll be decided by a goal from poverty players like Borini, Danny Wellbeck or Rob Holding.

2012 – Arsenal last met AC Milan in European competition back in the 2011/12 Champions League, with Milan winning 4-0 at San Siro before Arsenal won 3-0 at the Emirates. All three of Arsenal’s goals in that game came before half-time. Classic. pic.twitter.com/CVYt7HFDuE

The last time Arsenal played AC Milan at the San Siro the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Van Persie and Clarence Seedorf all featured!
Flash forward 6 years and we now have the likes of Borini, Iwobi and Welbeck to look forward too. pic.twitter.com/N2wVk85OJT

AC Milan vs Arsenal…
A tie of fallen heroes….
One is 7th and the other 6th with little or no chance of making the Top 4 in their respective leagues…#EuropaLeague
