Agnelli: Milan are favourites

Andrea Agnelli is another who believes that Milan are favourites for the upcoming League clash with Juventus this weekend.

Following on from Beppe Marotta’s claims that Juve are the underdogs for Week 25’s clash, Agnelli also sees the odds favouring the Rossoneri.

The Bianconeri President, however, still sees one advantage that his players take into the crucial encounter between the League’s current first and second-placed sides.

“I realise that there will be a bit of nervousness, that many people [in the League] at this time are trying to protect their interests,” reflected Agnelli on Tuesday.

“We have the rare honour - we are very relaxed.

“We approach Saturday’s game knowing that Milan are favourites because they are the current champions of Italy and they are already in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, so surely the Rossoneri are favourites.

“We’re going to make it a great game, it’s been so long they truly competed.”
