Allegri: Fiorentina fixture will be like the Milan derby

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has surprisingly compared their fixture with Fiorentina to the Milanese derby.
The leaders take on the Viola this Saturday and know a win will continue to enhance their title aspirations as they look to end a seven year wait for their first Scudetto.
Allegri is under no illusions at just how important it is to maintain their good form and tally up the points. The league is far more balanced this term and errors can be costly. He has drummed in this mentality into his players and must treat each game with respect.
Speaking to the press, the Rossoneri coach said.
“It will be a difficult game to play in the best of ways. My team is mature and so they understand the importance of this game”
“We must not be presumptuous and we are not, we need to have respect for everyone because the Italian league is difficult.”
“Tomorrow’s game must be important, just like the derby (against Inter).” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
