Calabria: 'Milan not Euro favourites'

Davide Calabria maintains Milan “are not the favourites” in the Europa League against Ludogorets, “but we are here to progress.”

The first leg in the Round of 32 kicks off in Bulgaria on Thursday at 18.00 GMT.

“We are not the favourites, as we are playing away from home and Ludogorets are a well-organised team,” said the defender in his Press conference.

“They have a lot of quality, above all in defence. We want to win, it won’t be easy, but we prepared well and have confidence.

“Ludogorets are a real team, so we have to play against them as a team too. They have pace and we must be wary of their counter-attacks.

“It’s not easy playing every three days, but if we don’t give 100 per cent, then we run into trouble. It’s a difficult month ahead of us between Serie A the Europa League and the Coppa Italia, but are here to progress to the next round.”
