The decisive night is upon us, as AC Milan face a second leg against Manchester United in Europe for the sixth time in their history.
As il Corriere della Sera writes (via MilanNews), it is a clash with Champions League memories, but is in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. There is much more at stake than just passing the round, because Milan have never won the Europa League/UEFA Cup and want to get to the end of the competition.
The cups are not a secondary objective, this has always been Elliott’s message. The league season is increasingly crowded and uncertain, which is why it is important to keep a plan B until the end, especially because winning the Europa League earns a spot in the Champions League group stages.
The 1-1 draw at Old Trafford means Milan start with a small advantage, but Manchester United have key players back like Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba. It will be necessary to fight for every ball, to play a smart game and to strike when the opportunity presents itself.
