Allegri has Munich on Milan's mind

Massimiliano Allegri faces Bayern Munich in tonight's Audi Cup and hopes Milan can return “for the Champions League Final.”

The Rossoneri take to the field at 19.45 UK time after Barcelona play Porto Alegre in the other tournament match.

“We hope to return to Munich for the Champions League Final,” said the Coach of that May 19, 2012 appointment.

“Tonight's game is an important test ahead of the Italian Super Cup against Inter, but we have to focus on one thing at a time.

“I'm satisfied with how things are going. Pre-season training is progressing well without any particular problems.”

Milan travel to Beijing for the Super Cup clash on August 6.

Antonio Cassano is expected to start against Bayern Munich this evening alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Philippe Mexes and Stephan El Shaarawy have been left behind due to fitness worries, but Mario Yepes, Alexandre Pato and Robinho are back from international duty in the Copa America.

Bayern begin their Bundesliga games within the next two weeks, but are without Franck Ribery thanks to an ankle injury.
