AC Milan coach Pioli wary of Dinamo Zagreb: Victory over Chelsea no surprise

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli expects a major battle against Champions League opponents Dinamo Zagreb tonight.

Dinamo meet Milan on the back of last week’s win against Chelsea.

Pioli said, “It is an opportunity for us, in our good moment. We are doing well and we have prepared well, Dinamo are a good team and it was no surprise the victory against Chelsea, after seeing the game. We must try to play our best football.

“We will need great attention and concentration. We always prepare matches as if it were always the most important. A lot of talk about the difference between the league and the Champions League, but if we play at our level we can always win, if we go down we struggle against everyone. We can do well.

“Dinamo Zagreb have a very compact defence and make great restarts. They haven’t lost for a long time, they are strong.

“Last year’s experience has improved us, both in the league and in the Champions League. When we played with our qualities we also won in the Champions League, see the match against Atletico. We have to play well, the level cannot go down.”
