Massimo Ambrosini has underlined how important a win would be for his Milan side at Juventus on Sunday.
“We have to try to keep Fiorentina away from us and get closer to Napoli,” the Rossoneri captain told Milan Channel.
“We are four points away from Napoli and we have four more than Fiorentina, we can’t really drop points this weekend.”
After drawing with the fourth-placed Viola and the second-placed Azzurri over the last two games, they will now take on the League leaders.
“Juventus have players with great quality and they deserve all of the points which they have in the table,” the veteran continued.
“Physically, too, they are in good shape and they are never a team who are easy to take on.
“You have to go to Turin and face the game in a certain way, otherwise you run the risk of putting on a horrible showing.”
Milan beat Juventus 1-0 at San Siro earlier in the season.
