However, the Rossoneri's recent form gives little reason for any great expectation, with Massimiliano Alegri's side on a terrible run.
Milan have won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions and are currently languishing in tenth place in Serie A. It is perhaps understandable then that they are priced at 12/1 (13.00) with Paddy Power to record a seemingly unlikely win.
Barcelona for their part remain top of La Liga, and extremely difficult to beat at home yet one or two questions are being asked about their style of play under Tata Martino.
They can be backed at the skinny price of 2/9 (1.22) for the win while the draw is available at 11/2 (6.50) with Paddy Power.
While Milan may not be firing on all cylinders, they have still found the back of the net with genuine consistency, scoring in 15 of the 16 competitive matches they have so far played this season including against Barca a couple of weeks ago.
If we take for a given that Barca will score at home, then the price of 10/11 (1.91) is really the price for Milan to score and using that logic it seems particularly appealing.
Barca have conceded goals in seven of their last 10 home games in the Champions League with Milan scoring in two of their last three visits the Camp Nou, making both teams to score an attractive selection.
