The Rossoneri carry a 4-2 lead from an exhilarating first leg, which leaves the tie swayed heavily in their favour, but not yet over by any means.

A spirited performance from 10-man Slavia Prague saw them keep the tie alive despite being heavily up against it, playing with a man light for over an hour.

El Hadji Malick Diouf’s early red card had the Czech side on the back foot early on, and after Olivier Giroud’s opener, it only looked like going in one direction.

However, David Doudera’s scorching volley was too hot to handle for Mike Maignan and pulled the visitors level, silencing San Siro.

Milan would go into the break with a two-goal lead though, following late first-half strikes from midfield duo Tijjani Reijnders and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

However, another impressive strike pulled Jindrich Trpisovsky’s side back into it, as Ivan Schranz lashed one home midway through the second half to make it 3-2, but Christian Pulisic made the most of excellent work from Rafael Leao to restore that two-goal advantage.

While being the huge outsiders having to claw back the deficit, Slavia Prague can take positives into the second leg as they chase a fourth European quarter-final in six seasons.

Historically, results at home to Italian opposition make for encouraging reading for Slavia too, as they have won four and drawn two of their eight encounters with Serie A sides on home turf.

The weekend’s 4-0 thrashing of Teplice may give them additional confidence heading into this one, as paired with Sparta Prague’s heavy defeat to Viktoria Plzen, Slavia are right back in the title race domestically.

Nevertheless, knockout football in the Europa League has not been their forte of late, especially at home, as they have failed to win any of their previous four knockout matches here in this competition, scoring just one goal in the process.

Milan have won on just two of their six trips to Czechia though, but one of those did come against Slavia’s cross-town rivals Sparta Prague in 2020-21.

While the lead looks comfortable, much is made about the fact that Milan have a history of throwing away big leads in European ties, notably in the 2005 Champions League final, and the 2003-04 quarter-final against Deportivo La Coruna, where they lost after being 4-1 up from the home leg.

Even in the Europa League, the Rossoneri have blown a healthy first-leg lead, losing to Bordeaux back in 1996 despite leading 2-0 from the first leg.

The current crop did their best to dispel this myth by holding onto their 3-0 lead over Rennes in the previous round, progressing comfortably despite losing the second leg in France.

However, with just one victory in their last seven European away matches, Stefano Pioli must ensure that his side keep the game in their control in the early stages.

Slavia Prague vs. AC Milan Head to head

These two teams have only previously met once in the first leg of this tie, with Milan winning 4-2 at home.

AC Milan Team News

Alessandro Florenzi picked up suspension in his last two Milan appearances, one domestically and one on the continent, and after serving one against Empoli at the weekend, he will serve another here.

Tommaso Pobega is the only known injury absentee for the Rossoneri, as Pioli may go strong knowing he cannot afford to rotate too heavily, with the job not yet done.
