A spot in the Europa League quarter-finals will be at stake when Slavia Prague and AC Milan lock horns at Fortuna Arena on Thursday evening (17:45), in the second leg of their round of 16 clash, which is live on TNT Sports.

The Italian giants prevailed as 4-2 winners at San Siro last week, meaning that Jindrich Trpisovsky's side need a huge performance to turn this tie on its head. We have detailed all the latest team news and match odds below, and offered our Slavia Prague vs AC Milan prediction.

Slavia Prague vs AC Milan Prediction

Team News

El Hadji Malick Diouf will be absent for the hosts due to suspension, after the 19-year-old was sent off in the San Siro defeat, while all of Ondrej Kolar, David Pech, and Christos Zafeiris remain in the treatment room.

As for Milan, both Rafael Leao and Alessandro Florenzi should return from their domestic bans, while Olivier Giroud could also retain his place in the starting XI.

Match Odds

Slavia Prague are 2/1 to win inside 90 minutes, although they need to win by two goals to force extra time, the draw is 3/1 and Milan can be backed at 23/20 to make it four wins on the spin.

Both teams to score is priced up at 4/7, or alternatively you can back the hosts to win to nil at 5/1 or the visitors at 3/1.

Draw (90 mins) @ 3/1

Milan have a lead to protect, so I'm expecting a cautious approach from the Rossoneri heading into this game.

The visitors enjoyed a narrow 1-0 victory over Lazio in their most recent away outing but prior to the that, the Italian side lost against Monza and Rennes on their travels.

In fact, Milan have made a habit of being involved in high-scoring affairs recently, particularly on the road. If the home side get an early goal, that two-goal cushion could soon disappear, so I believe Stefano Pioli will take a draw here, and a place in the next round.

Draw at 3-1 in 90 mins

Over 3.5 goals (90 mins) @ 13/8

I believe that there'll be plenty of goalmouth action in Prague on Thursday night.

As mentioned above, Slavia Prague need to overturn a two-goal deficit, so I'm expecting the home side to come flying out of the blocks early doors, which could also leave them vulnerable in transition.

In addition, eight of the visitors’ last 11 away games have seen four goals or more, so I'm taking over 3.5 goals to land in what could be an enthralling affair.

Over 3.5 goals at 13-8
