Allegri demands goals

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri feels his side must start scoring goals if they are to have any chance of beating Real Madrid in the Champions League tomorrow.

The Rossoneri have averaged just over a goal a game this season, showing little in the way of ruthlessness up front despite the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato and Robinho.

Speaking at a pre-match Press Conference, Allegri said: "We got a lot wrong in the first game [against Real Madrid].

"We started with the wrong approach and we conceded two strange goals. They were fortunate.

"When you play games like these, you can't think about playing badly technically.

"Tomorrow, we'll have to play a game of great pressure but I am certain that we can win.

"Saturday evening's performance against Juventus was good, one of the best since the start of the season. We didn't get the result, but we created a lot. At times football is a liar.

"The team is creating many chances but scoring few goals. Anyway I am an optimist. The goals will come and other players will start scoring, not just Ibrahimovic and Pato."
