AC Milan hosts Arsenal at San Siro for the first leg of the Europa League round of 16. This marks the first meeting between the two teams since the round of 16 in the 2012 Champions League.
Arsenal is struggling at the moment having lost eight of their last 13 games. The Gunners sit in sixth place in the Premier League and 13 point away from the top four spots. Arsenal dropped back-to-back 3–0 losses to Manchester City before a 2–1 loss to Brighton on Sunday.
AC Milan is unbeaten in its past 13 matches. AC Milan’s Serie A match against Lazio was postponed following the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori, who died in his sleep.

AC Milan vs Arsenal: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for TONIGHT’S Europa League clash
Arsene Wenger has conceded his side are unlikely to challenge for the top four and must win the Europa League if they’re to claim a Champions League spot next season.
But after four successive defeats in all competitions, the Gunners face a difficult challenge on Thursday night in their last 16 first leg, as they take on seven-time European champions AC Milan.
The Rossoneri have been rejuvenated under former midfielder Gennaro Gattuso, following his return to the club earlier in the season, and are in the midst of a 13 match unbeaten run.
Under-pressure Wenger knows that success in Europe’s secondary competition is Arsenal’s only chance to save their season.
Arsenal: Ospina, Chambers, Koscielny, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Welbeck
AC Milan: Donnarumma; Calabria, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Biglia, Bonaventura; Suso, Cutrone, Calhanoglu
