Our prediction: AC Milan v Man Utd

United are in top form right now, but were wasteful with their chances against Milan last week and must be more clinical here to bypass the Italians.

Luckily for Solskjaer, he has plenty of attacking options even if Cavani and Martial aren’t available. Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will likely lead the line, with Daniel James once again set for a role. Bruno Fernandes will, as usual, be vital to their forward threat.

Milan aren’t the all-out attacking team a side with Ibrahmovic would expect to be. This will be a cagey encounter and the hosts should score – but United are in a good position to advance.

Our prediction: AC Milan 1-2 Man Utd (8/1 at bet365)
