Team News

AC Milan
Milan's main man Ibrahimovic would dearly love to line up against his former employers this week after missing the first leg, but the 39-year-old - who has just earned a recall to the Sweden national team - may only be considered for a spot on the bench after overcoming a thigh problem.

However, two players who missed the first leg in Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez are both back in the fold for the hosts, but Ante Rebic's return against Napoli ended on a sour note as he was sent off - and subsequently hit with a two-game domestic ban - for insulting an official.

However, Rebic could nevertheless be handed the nod up top as Rafael Leao is doubtful with a thigh problem, and it remains to be seen if Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria will be passed fit.

Franck Kessie caught the eye at Old Trafford with his assured display in midfield, and the Ivory Coast international could find himself alongside Soualiho Meite this week if Sandro Tonali once again drops down to the substitutes bench, but Ismael Bennacer is also available once again.
AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Hernandez; Kessie, Meite; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic; Rebic

AC Milan Europa League form: DWWDDD
AC Milan form (all competitions): DWDWDL

Manchester United
As for United, Cavani, Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek are all in the travelling party after overcoming various injuries, but the latter is supposedly intent on heading for the exit door after struggling to get a look-in when fully fit.

Anthony Martial's absence against West Ham depleted Solskjaer's striking options further and he has not been passed fit for this game, while Eric Bailly will not be involved either.

David de Gea has completed a mandatory isolation period after returning from Spain to be with his newborn child, but Henderson is likely to reprise his role in between the sticks in any case.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
Manchester United Europa League form: WDD
Manchester United form (all competitions): DDDWDW

Prediction: AC Milan 1-2 Manchester United
