AC Milan vs. Arsenal play-by-play analysis

"The system rewards the audacious away from home." So says the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, hoping to bag a goal or two at the San Siro and set up a slightly more relaxed return leg in north London (where Milan failed to score against Tottenham Hotspur last year). Milan's last home Champions League game was a see-sawing 2-3 defeat to Barcelona, while Arsenal's previous travels took them to Greece, where Olympiacos took advantage of a weakened side. This time Wenger will have added audacity in the shape of Robin van Persie and Thierry Henry, while Milan have Alexandre Pato and Kevin Prince-Boateng back from injury.
