Zapata: 'Those who are left...'

Cristian Zapata wants an “aggressive” Milan against Dudelange in the Europa League amid an injury crisis. “Those left need to keep the boat afloat.”

It kicks off at San Siro at 17.55 GMT, click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“It is important to ensure we are ready, train to the best of our abilities and put ourselves at the complete disposal of the squad,” Zapata told Milan TV.

“In this moment of difficulty with so many players out, I am here and will try to give my all. It’s an important game and we need everyone to pitch in.

“I am proud of our performance against Lazio. It was an improvised defence in the circumstances, but we communicated a lot and that got us through."

Stefan Simic and Alen Halilovic get their first Milan starts today.

“It’s an odd moment, but those of us who are left need to keep the boat afloat. We’ve got to put the pressure on this evening from the opening minutes, be aggressive and take home the victory.”
