AC Milan vs Arsenal: who’ll get the upper hand in their head-to-head record?

This is probably the most exciting fixture, with these sides having met in the Champions League before. AC Milan and Arsenal have locked horns six times before but are tied for number of wins with two each (D2). This match-up means one side could get the upper hand in their head-to-head record.

Will the Rossoneri end their win-less run in England?

Gattuso’s men have their work cut out for them. The Gunners won’t be a walk in the park despite their inconsistency. There is also the fact that AC Milan is winless in their last six trips to England (D3, L3), having lost 3-0 when they last visited the north London outfit.

BVB boss meets a familiar foe

Dortmund will be facing Salzburg. It will be a familiar opponent for BVB boss Peter Stöger, as he was the last manager to lead a team other than their last 16 opponent to the title in his home county, Austria.

Aritz Aduriz to punish Marseille again in Golden Boot pursuit?

When these two sides clashed in the Europa League round of 32 in 2015/16, Aritz Aduriz scored a wonder goal to eliminate the French club. He could do it again, as he fighting to become the tournament’s top scorer for a second time. 

Will we be seeing a repeat of the 1999/2000 season in Lazio vs Dynamo Kyiv?
