Glasgow Celtic will take on AC Milan in matchday five of the Champions League, the team in a dire situation in the 2013-2014 season. The Milanese Devils have not won from seven matches in all competitions, and a failure could lead to their elimination from the most important football competition in Europe.

If the Scots’ coach Neil Lennon said “his team has nothing to lose, only to win”, Massimiliano Allegri can not boast the same.

“It’s only normal that the fans are disappointed but they are not the only ones,” Allegri told a press conference. “All the playing staff and everyone else at the club share their disappointment”

“We have to do better and in this we need the fans to be behind us so I don’t think it’s ever true that it’s better to be playing away from home, it’s better to be playing at San Siro.”

Milan (5 points) ranks second in Group H, which is led by Barcelona (10 points). 3rd is Ajax, with 4 points, followed by Celtic, 3 points. However, the Rossoneri coach hopes to qualify for the next phase of the UCL, taking into account taht things are really bad in the championship.

“They are two very distinct competitions – Serie A and the Champions League and for tomorrow’s match we will do the ground work to make sure we are as well prepared as we possibly can be.” Allegri added.
