So our beloved Arsenal face a tricky game against AC Milan tomorrow night at the San Siro in the first of their two-legged Champions League last 16 tie.
The Rossoneri currently sit top of Serie A and have been in good form as of late, managing to pick up 10 points out of a possible 15 in their last five league games.
While Arsenal have racked up 7 points out of a possible 15 from their last five games, but the Gunners are beginning to gather some momentum and once again find their form.
Undoubtedly, both clubs possess an abundance of talent in their squad, but here are the FIVE AC Milan stars that I personally think we should be most wary of and attempt to keep quite if we want to get a positive result tomorrow night in Italy:
Although the Brazilian international has been in very poor form domestically, it’s in Europe that the 22-year-old has been prolific, netting 2 goals in 3 appearances. Pato has bagged 4 goals in 15 games so far this season, and is regarded as one of Milan’s most dangerous players when on form. The former Internacional striker possesses electric pace and speed and also has a piercing eye for goal, regardless of his record this season. He will certainly prove to be a handful for our defence and must be kept at bay if we are to have a good night in Milan.
Another attacker that mustn’t be allowed to have his way. The former Manchester City winger hasn’t been having the best of seasons for the Rossoneri in terms of goals, netting just 3 in 18 appearances in Serie A, and is not considered a consistent performer by many. However, the Brazilian possesses great technique, skill and is able to create goal-scoring opportunities for his team-mates in an instant. On his day Robinho is a tricky customer to handle and the forward will be looking to test the fitness of Bacary Sagna, who recently recovered from a broke leg. Let’s hope our Mr. Consistent is up to the challenge and ultimately wins this battle!
