“It is a game between two teams who have important ambitions,” the defender told Mediaset Premium.
“A victory would be very important. Aside from the table, we should focus only on this match and I think Milan will be coming here fired up for a win.”
Barzagli will face his former teammate Alessandro Matri, who made the move from Juventus to Milan this summer.
“We know each other well and we know what he can do. We’ll have to be wary.”
