The two heavy-weights of European football go head to head in a fascinating contest but based on current form Milan look slightly favourite ahead of the game.

They were brilliant against Liverpool at Anfield and are more likely to secure their first win in the competition. Atletico struggled away from home against Alaves in their last game but they are more than capable of getting a positive result here.
