It’s a tough competition n both teams are pretty equal. Gennaro Gattuso is doing good job in Milan nowadays.

"I'm sorry for Arsenal, who I'm sure would have liked to have continued in Europe," he said. "It would have been a nice final, but I'm happy. It's best to face a big club like Arsenal now. We needed opponents like these."

Christian Abbiati, Milan's club manager, told Sky Sport Italia: "Facing Arsenal is a fascinating encounter. It's bound to be a great tie."

Abbiati was between the posts for the Rossoneri when the two sides met in the Champions League round of 16 in 2012, with Arsenal nearly overturning a 4-0 defeat in Milan by winning 3-0 in London.

"It was a disaster at London, where we lost 3-0, but in the end, we made it through," Abbiati said. "I hope we don't see the same mistakes this time. Milan are in good form at the moment with some good results and I hope we can keep it up.

"This is definitely not the same Arsenal as back then and we meet them in what is a positive moment for us, even if we've got lots of games coming up with the league and the Coppa Italia. Playing games like this motivates you by itself."

Bring it. the Empire always Strikes back.

At least we have a chance of going out to someone who isn’t Bayern or Borussia



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Fascinating.
It is a good gauge on how far we had progress with Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Ramsey.

Not too concern with Welbeck as it is out DEFENCE and MIDFIELD that scored nowadays.

Like Milan said, it is better to meet a strong team now which will motivate the players to play to another level.

But Milan isn't the strongest team in the competition, Atletico, Dortmund n RB Leipzig are then comes Lazio n Milan. So it's nothing like final more like battle of the fallen...
