Arsenal have nothing to play for this season other than the Europa League. The Premier League is lost so a win in the Europa League is the only way in which Arsenal might make the Champions League next season. That being said, they are not in good form. The Gunners don’t seem to know how to win and the manager is hated by all the fans. A win in this game will do many wonders for Arsenal but I don’t think that they are good enough at the moment get the win away from home at the San Siro.
Taking everything into consideration, I think that AC Milan will win this game. The Italian side are playing better football at the moment and they are also at home. As far as betting is concerned, the outright market has value. Due to this reason, betting on AC Milan to win is the best option. This should also be a high scoring game since Arsenal don’t know how to defend so the over 2.5 goals bet makes sense.
