Very worrying second leg precedents: All the key stats ahead of Rennes vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan travel to face Rennes in the second leg of their Europa League play-off round tie hoping to book a place in the last 16 without too much drama.

Rennes arrived at San Siro in excellent form but in truth the contest was over after less than an hour as a Ruben Loftus-Cheek brace and a stunning goal from Rafael Leao put Milan firmly in command of the tie.

    1. Could mention the loss to Liverpool instead in the CL Final… But they both hurt the same…

      Pirlo said in his book that he thought Coruna players were on something in that return leg.
