AC Milan will attack to defend, says Ancelotti

BELGRADE, Aug 21 (Reuters) - AC Milan will not sit back on a 1-0 lead against Red Star Belgrade in their Champions League third qualifying round second leg on Tuesday, coach Carlo Ancelotti said.

'We will attack to defend our advantage from the first leg and try to put them away by scoring first,' he told reporters in the Serbian capital on Monday.

'That is how we always play and we won't change our strategy against Red Star. They are a talented side but we are far more experienced.'

The second-place finish in last season's Serie A guaranteed Milan automatic qualification in the Champions League group stage but they dropped to third after having points deducted for their involvement in a match-fixing scandal.

As a result, the six-times European champions had to enter the third qualifying round and Ancelotti believes they will overcome a hostile reception and a motivated home side.

'We didn't expect to play in the qualifying stages and didn't have enough time to prepare but we are ready,' he said.

'I've been to this stadium before and I am well aware what we can expect tomorrow but Milan has always been a strong European club and we are confident.'

Ancelotti was part of the side that beat Red Star on penalties in the 1988-89 European Cup and went on to win the competition.

'That was the beginning of a great era,' he said.

Milan's defence will be depleted with Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Nesta and Kakha Kaladze out injured but Brazilian midfielder Kaka believes they still have too much for the Serbian champions.

'Red Star showed in the first leg they are a good side but we also saw obvious chinks in their armour that we will exploit again,' he said.
