This Europa League tie seems a bit different.

Six years after Milan knocked Arsenal out of the round of 16 in the Champions League, the two teams meet again in European competition, only this time it’s the Europa League. We hope that the result will be the same, but facing Arsenal in the Europa League feels kind of like a cruel joke. After all, both Milan and Arsenal should feel like favorites to win the whole thing, and to face each other at this point?
Oh well, gotta beat the big boys eventually.
On to the links.
