Assistant manager Mauro Tassotti warns Milan “need a perfect performance” to get the better of Juventus tonight.
“We need a perfect performance. This is a difficult game, as Juventus are tough to beat and it isn’t easy to get a result against them,” Tassotti told Milan Channel.
“They are particularly strong in terms of tempo and possession. Tonight we cannot afford to throw the ball away.
“We have prepared as best as possible and will try to battle our way to a result. Qualifying for the next phase of the Champions League a round early has boosted our self-esteem, so now we can focus on tonight’s game.”
Marco Van Basten is in the stands for this big game after he was invited by President Silvio Berlusconi.
“It’ll be a little strange seeing Van Basten here and I’m sure it’ll be a very special moment for the San Siro fans.”
