It's matchday 4 in the Champions League and we are back at San Siro. The match between AC Milan and Porto will be a decisive one for Stefano Pioli's Rossoneri. After three straight defeats in the competition, AC Milan need points if they're to keep the dream of knockout football alive.
THE SUPPORT OF SAN SIRO
"Our fans are second to none; we haven't yet been able to bring them the joy that they deserve in the Champions League. Tomorrow, we have another opportunity and the big teams know how to take their chances. I expect a lot from my team."
DECISIONS AND UPCOMING GAMES
"We can't afford to think about anything else. Tomorrow is an important crossroad and we cannot mess it up. We have the belief because we have the quality. We have one game to make good on the situation following the defeat last time out. What happens on Sunday is another thing entirely."
QUESTIONS MARKS ON THE REFEREEING IN ROMA V AC MILAN
"I believe one thing; we beat Roma because we were the better team and lost against Porto because they were better than us. I can't control anything else. We're just going to keep our focus on what we are doing. We analysed the performance with the players and we know what we did well. We can't waste our energy on external factors. Now, we are thinking about the Champions League because we feel like we deserve more than zero points in the table and we have this game to confirm that - against a really tough side."
THE FIRST MATCH
"Porto were aggressive but but so much as to not allow us any time on the ball. We lost the game because we didn't control it- We were poor and we didn't beat their press; we need to be much better at that tomorrow."
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PORTO
"This is their way of playing: they hold the pitch well and are always aggressive. They're a strong side. We'll need to be flexible and technically precise. We can't make simple errors and we have to play positive football."
HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DIRECTORS
"I think it's important to recognise the work that is being done. I'm happy with the relationship that I have with the Club and the directors. We'll discuss the future together."
