Man Utd face AC Milan in Europa League battle of recovering giants

LONDON (AFP) – Manchester United and AC Milan meet in the Europa League last 16 early tomorrow (1.55am Brunei time) in a battle of European royalty, with both clubs showing signs of revival.

With 10 Champions League titles between them, United and Milan were once feared across Europe for their swashbuckling play and financial muscle. But both clubs have lost their lustre in recent years, making their first meeting since 2010 an intriguing affair.

In a sign of the drop in standards at Old Trafford and the San Siro, the 11th encounter between two of the world’s most historic teams will be their first outside the Champions League knockout stages.
