Slavia Prague vs AC Milan

A spot in the Europa League quarter-finals will be at stake when Slavia Prague and AC Milan take on each other at Fortuna Arena on Thursday. Jindrich Trpisovsky’s troops aim to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Teplice and they need yet another big win if they are to eliminate the Rossoneri in the EL double-header. El Hadji Malick Diouf misses out through suspension after the 19-year-old was sent off in the San Siro defeat, while all Kolar, Pech, and Zafeiris remain in the recovery room.

Stefano Pioli’s troops, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in all competitions ahead of the trip to Prague. As AC Milan are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the second leg, we are tempted to place our bets on under 2.5 goals. Olivier Giroud returns to the starting XI, while both Rafael Leao and Alessandro Florenzi are back from the domestic bans.
