Arsenal To Qualify For Quarter Finals

Arsenal have been drawn agaisnt AC Milan in the last 16 of the Champions League and whilst on paper this looks like a disasterous draw for the North London club I don't see it that way and strongly fancy them to prevail over the 2 legs for 3 reasons:

1. Whilst AC Milan are no doubt a superpower in European terms - 7 Champions League/ European Cup titles and 4 times runner up - this is all in the past and their current team simply don't match up. If Arsenal play the team infront of them and not the history of AC Milan they will win

2. Serie A is a poor relation to the English Premiership. Quite simply if this current AC Milan team played in this years Premiership they would be doing well to finish in the top 8, whereas Arsenal will be in contention for a top 4 finish at least

3. Away from home first is crucial in these ties, as all the pressure is on Milan to go out and win the game and give themselves an edge before the return game in London. This will suit Arsenal who will fancy their chances of at least scoring in Italy and will be satisfied with any result like 1-1, if they can't win the game outright - which I wouldn't rule out at all either

Overall it's a glamour tie but providing Arsenal don't loose RVP between now and the time the games come around I can only see one team progressing to the quarter finals and that's Arsenal

Arsenal to progress to quarter finals is my choice here... Good Luck
