RTÉ Sport is to televise live the visit of Italian giants AC Milan to Tallaght Stadium to take on Shamrock Rovers in a Europa League second qualifying round tie on Thursday 17 September.
The game will be live on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player. With restrictions on movement around Europe, the game will be a ‘win or go home’ match with Extra time and penalties to determine the winner if needed.
This will be AC Milan’s first competitive game of the season. Rovers, on the other hand, have gone five points clear at the top of the SSE Airtricity League with eight games remaining and have a chance at least of scoring a historic win.
Milan are one of the traditional giants of European football and are likely to include Zlatan Ibrahimović and Italian national goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in their travelling squad at least.
Rovers reached this stage after a record 12-11 penalty shootout win over Ilves Tampere of Finland in the first qualifying round.
Peter Collins will present live coverage from Tallaght Stadium with Kenny Cunningham alongside George Hamilton on commentary. Coverage begins at 6.30 pm and the game kicks-off at 7.00 pm.
