AC Milan 0-2 Arsenal: Europa League TV channel, live streaming online

The Gunners are at a low ebb as they get set to face Gennaro Gattuso's upwardly mobile Rossoneri side in Europe


Crisis-stricken Arsenal head to Italy on Thursday to take on Serie A side AC Milan in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.

Arsene Wenger's men are on a dismal run of form and come into the game against the Rossoneri on the back of four consecutive defeats, losing most recently to Brighton in the Premier League.

Their hopes of achieving a Champions League finish - in the top four - have effectively been extinguished so the Europa League is now their only way of reclaiming a seat at the top table.

Arsenal know winning the Europa League is their only realistic chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League and face a huge test against a resurgent AC Milan.

Sunday's loss at Brighton, an eighth in 14 games in 2018, leaves the Gunners 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham and now travel to Italy for a daunting last-16 first-leg clash.

Milan are on a six-game winning streak, a huge contrast to Arsenal's woes, under former player Gennaro Gattuso, though Thursday's game will be the first at San Siro since the tragic passing of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori after the weekend derby for cancelled.

Alexandre Lacazette and Nacho Monreal remain sidelined for Arsenal. The Rossoneri will be without Luca Antonelli, Ignazio Abate and long-term absentee Andrea Conti.

They come up against a Milan side that, conversely, are experiencing an upswing in fortunes, with Gennaro Gattuso finally discovering the formula for success at San Siro.
