There's no exiting this stadium without a winner tonight as it's the second leg of the Europa League 16th Finals meeting between Milan and Crvena Zvezda. Game on!

It's no vacation for neither Milan nor Crvena Zvezda as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

It's quite the trip for Crvena Zvezda when visiting Milan as the cities are 1000 kilometers apart.

Crvena Zvezda form and stats

Last season their Champions League adventure ended in the 3rd qualifying round.

The away performances of Crvena Zvezda have been very solid so far with 11 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats in the Super Liga. The question is whether this happy travelling can continue. When we have look at the Europa League statistics, we find 4W-3D-1L. This is both home and away. Things are running smoothly for Crvena Zvezda who hasn't tasted defeat in their last 23 matches, regardless of venue and tournament. Their last defeat was against Backa Topola. The away team travel with confidence. Not since the Backa Topola game have they lost an away game, meaning Crvena has taken points from twelve away matches in a row.

Crvena play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 2-1 victory visiting Spartak Subotica. Ahead of that game was the 2-2 draw at home against Milan in the Europa League.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager D. Stankovic when Sékou Sanogo scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 60th minute.

You'll want to know how Crvena managed when outsiders such as today. Our database found one similar match resulting in zero away wins, zero draws and one home win.

A new game in only one day for Crvena, the Super Liga home match versus Proleter Novi Sad. Busy days.

The Crvena Zvezda manager D. Stankovic has got the team scoring on the road, with 26 away goals in 12 league matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. The Crvena defense is a tough nut to crack, having conceded less than half a goal per away game on average (5 goals in 12 games).

Head 2 Head

Crvena Zvezda - Milan 2-2 was the story when these teams last met, earlier this season. Head-2-head stats last three meetings: two - one - zero (Milan wins - draws - Crvena Zvezda wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), one had two or less.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
