Caracciolo plays down Ibra battle

Andrea Caracciolo is adamant tomorrow's San Siro clash against Milan won't be a personal battle between himself and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The two strikers are the most important players for their respective clubs, but the Italian is looking at the contest in general.

"It won't be Ibra versus Caracciolo, but Milan against Brescia," the former Palermo man noted ahead of the Lombard derby.

"It'll be a very difficult game against a side who want to remain on the path which has taken them to the top of the table.

"It'll be a game between a great team and a provincial one, but we are going there with the intention of playing our own football."

Brescia will travel without fans though after it was ruled that no away supporters would be allowed in.

"It's an absurd decision," he added. "I remember going to these games at San Siro as a child. Matches against Brescia were a party."

Brescia do need a result at the Meazza given that they are in the relegation zone with just 12 points from 14 games so far.
