Cache control is the modern (HTTP 1.1) way, "Expires" the old (HTTP 1.0)

Use them both:

  HTTP 1.1 clients will honour "Cache-Control" (which is easier to
  use and much more flexible).

  HTTP 1.0 clients will ignore "Cache-Control" but honour "Expires".
  With "Expires" you get thus at least a bit control for these
  old clients.
