The Arsenal vs Milan match will take place on December 13, 2022 at Al Maktoum Stadium. Arsenal’s preparations for the Dubai Super Cup friendly match with Serie A giants AC Milan are in full swing as Mikel Arteta’s team has been put into training.
Both teams are the top clubs in their respective leagues. As for Arsenal, it is currently at the top of the English Premier League standings. As for AC Milan, it is in second place in the Italian League standings.
So, this is an interesting battle to look forward to. The two teams have met, as Arsenal have always won in the previous two meetings. In the Europa League competition on March 16, 2018, Arsenal won 3-1. On March 9, 2018, Arsenal won 0-2 against AC Milan. It seems that every team is not going to lose its leading player.
There are many players who appeared in the World Cup, who may not participate. Considering the current performance of the two teams, Arsenal is in the best position for them. They are at the top of the Premier League standings with a total of 37 points.
Arsenal against Milan
From 14 matches, Arsenal have one loss, one draw and 12 victories. Better than many other big clubs like Man City, Man United to Liverpool.
Milan also has a good performance, it ranks second in the Italian league standings this season. A total of 15 games, they won 10 times, drew 3 times and lost 2 times. Oleksandr Zinchenko remained absent from Arsenal due to a muscle problem that led to his wasting against Lyon. Emil Smith is also expected to miss Rowe again as he continues to struggle to regain full fitness following hip surgery.
Ben White, Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Matt Turner are all back with the squad after the World Cup and could take part. Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Aaron Ramsdale are expected to return to training sometime this week.
Milan against Arsenal
Arsenal and Lyon are level at the top of the table with four points, although the French team has played a game more. Arsenal took three points from beating Lyon 3-0 in their first match and added an extra point by also going out on penalties held at the end of the 90 minutes.
Lyon then beat Liverpool 3-1 in their second match on Sunday and also added another point to their tally by beating the Reds on penalties as well. So, Arsenal's victory over Milan on Tuesday will be enough to see them win the championship, as it will take them to no less than seven points before the final match of the tournament, which will witness Milan's confrontation against Liverpool on Friday.
The point of interest before the game is whether Arteta will choose to start some of the players who have just joined the squad after their World Cup stay ends. White, Partey, Turner and Xhaka are all in Dubai and are likely to play AC Milan on Tuesday. Arteta will certainly be tempted to give them a few minutes before the team returns to England, but they may each get some second-half time.
