The Rossoneri suffered a 3-2 loss in their first group stage match against Liverpool after their long-awaited return to the Champions League. History is also not in Milan’s favor, as they have won only one of their last 17 matches against a Spanish side in a European competition.

Nevertheless, Milan legend

Franco Baresi

believes Milan have nothing to be nervous about in today’s battle against Diego Simeone's men.

"At the draw, we knew we would be in the fourth-tier pot,"

Baresi told Stats Perform.

"We knew we would draw high level opponents.

"This groups is very tough, but we want to have our say until the end and enjoy this moment, this comeback to the Champions League.

"To me, in this group, all the clubs will lose points, because it is not easy to beat Atletico Madrid and Porto. This next one at home against Atleti will be so important for Milan if we want to dream about going through.

"But we don't have to be too nervous, we have to live it with enthusiasm and courage – like Milan always did around the world."
