Milan

are set to face

Manchester United

tonight in the first leg of the round of 16 of Europa League. The two teams also faced each other back in 2006-07 in the semi-final of the Champions League.

Former Milan star

Filippo Inzaghi

has spoken about his memories from that match.

He told

La Gazzetta dello Sport

:

“Three things immediately come to mind.

“The looks on the bus: We were all very concentrated.

“The rain: during the first half, and incredible storm came down. The fans: San Siro is always special, but that evening it was even more so.

“Liverpool had qualified for the Final 24 hours before us, that was the team that inflicted a terrible disappointment on us in 2005 in Istanbul.

“We were waiting for that rematch, we really wanted it. And Manchester United paid for our desire to get revenge over the Reds.”

Inzaghi also believes the two teams are now equally strong and there are no favorites in tonight’s clash.

“In this type of games, there are no favorites.

“You just have to run and fight for 180 minutes and then take stock.

“Above all, I wish the Milan lads will enjoy it. These emotions stay with you and enrich you. I cheer for them.

“Pioli’s team are having an amazing season and I’m struck by the enthusiasm they transmit when they play.

“You can see that the lads want to run, to attack, to bring the club back to the top. I’m sure that next year, Milan will be back in the Champions League.”
