'Milan are still a threat'

Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini has admitted his side will be up against it when they face Milan in the Champions League.

The Rossoneri have struggled so far this season in Serie A, picking up just seven points from their first eight games. But the Chilean Coach still believes the San Siro side will pose a significant threat on Wednesday at La Rosaleda.

“It is not for me talk of Milan,” he told a Press conference. “They are not going well in the League, but in the Champions League they have won four out of a possible six points.

"Milan are going to be very difficult to beat. They are undergoing a major cyclical change and that has taken its toll in the League, but they have been better in the Champions League.

“We need to be at our best in order to win this game."

The match will also see a straight shoot-out between two of the most in-form attackers in Europe – Isco and Stephan El Shaarawy.

“These two are young people who are great players and have to demonstrate this great projection. Milan have very dangerous attackers and they are going to be very difficult to play against.

“We have to play a great game [to beat them].”
