AC Milan will feature in their play off game against Rio Ave away from home. Milan have beaten Shamrock Rovers and FK Bodo/Glimt on the road to this final round ahead of the group stages. Milan are struggling with an injury/illness crisis with Ante Rebic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio, Leo Duarte and Andrea Conti out. Rio Ave have drawn their first two league games but have not been scoring. Milan will need to keep it tidy at the back as they miss out on key figures in the attack. The game has a lot on the line as Milan could secure 15 million euros from the qualification to the UEFA Europa League.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Hernandez, Kessie, Bennacer, Castillejo, Calhanoglu, Saelemaekers, Colombo.
