Therefore, Milan need a victory to keep their two-point advantage on top of the Serie A table, while a draw would mean they will be level on points with them.

“I feel the same as any other game, concentration, focus, trying to prepare a difficult match,”

Stefano Pioli

told

DAZN

.

The Rossoneri boss was quizzed whether using Rade Krunic instead of Brahim Diaz or even Frank Kessie in the role behind Olivier Giroud was him trying to make his side’s forward line more physical.

“Krunic doesn’t just have physicality, he can time his runs into the box really well, so can be very useful in games like this.

“All those in the squad have minutes in their legs and motivation, so they can all be called upon.”
