Allegri: No complacency
Massimiliano Allegri insists AC Milan will not go into the second leg of their Champions League tie with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium think they are already through to the next round.
If Milan are eliminated in London on Tuesday night they will become the first side in Champions League history to throw away a four-goal first-leg deficit.
"We know how English teams play, so it's going to be important to have the right approach to the game, with great attention and a great pace because I'm sure they'll try to raise the pace and try to find an early goal,'' said the Milan boss..
"I would insult the team if I would say I had seen some drop in focus in the past. When you play the Champions League last 16 against Arsenal in London, regardless of what happened in the first leg, I would never expect my team would feel more relaxed. In football, anything can happen.
"I think we need to step on the pitch fired up for 90 minutes without thinking what we did in the first leg.
"We must be conscious that we are going to face a team with great qualities and a team which will try to change the course of the tie right from the beginning. I also know the English teams will never surrender.
"We will find a different team compared to the home leg, also because they will try anything, they've got nothing to lose and they will try to reopen the hatch at the beginning.
"After the defeat against us, they played some excellent games. You can look at what they did against Tottenham, you can look at what they did against Liverpool on Saturday.''
