are set to face


tonight in

UEFA Europa League

. Former Milan and Celtic midfielder,

Massimo Donati

thinks Milan have the mental advantage in the game since they’ve had good results in the recent week, contrary to their Scottish  rival.

"It's hard to say. Mentally, Milan are very good right now,”

Donati said

“They are top of the league, every player is very confident.

"Celtic are the opposite, they are not having very good results and the pressure is on and there are some rumors. So mentally Milan are ahead but it is still a game.

"In the first game this season, Milan dominated the first part of the game but after Neil Lennon made some changes Celtic then were the better team.

"Celtic just have to play as if they have nothing to lose, push and run and then they can do a very good game."


also talked about his time at San Siro, why he left the club and his problem with the Rossoneri former coach,

Gordon Strachan


"Because sometimes people in life make mistakes and I made a mistake. It's simple.

"My family and my wife were a bit homesick. My two children were born in Glasgow. The second season I had wasn't the best, I had a few problems with Gordon Strachan.

"But you make decisions, you think 'I have two young kids, maybe we should go back to the family', but I wasn't sure about this, but I said this to the club.

"In the third season, Tony Mowbray took over as coach. And honestly, he loved me, he said to me that I could play in midfield or defense. I left the club on August 29th, but at the start of the season I had played every game for Celtic and even scored a goal against Arsenal in the Champions League.

"Tony said to me: 'Why do you have to go? Why do you have to go?

"In my mind I was torn and thought: 'What should I do? What should I do?'...But then an offer came from Bari, and the club accepted the offer. So, I left."
