Match Preview

San Siro braced for Madrid clash AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has urged his players to put all thoughts of their defeat against Juventus to the back of their minds when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night. The Italians go into the game at the San Siro on the back of Saturday's 2-1 loss, which saw them drop five points behind Serie A leaders Lazio. The result marked Milan's first league defeat at home in 10 months. "I am disappointed by the result as we didn't deserve to lose," said Allegri. "We played well and created many goalscoring opportunities. "We must put this defeat behind us and bounce back immediately in order to prepare well for the game against Real Madrid." The Rossoneri host the Spanish giants sitting second in Group G, five points behind leaders Real and level on four points with Ajax. The Dutch side visit Stade Abbe-Deschamps to meet bottom side Auxerre, who have yet to clinch a point in the competition. AC Milan playmaker Ronaldinho knows his team cannot be complacent in the early stages of the match. The Rossoneri lost 2-0 at Real last month after giving away two goals in the opening 14 minutes. "To concede twice early on made life difficult for us," said Ronaldinho. "We must be focused from start to finish. "This is a very important game for us and we must only think of doing what the coach asks us to do in order to clinch three points." Milan will be without injured pair Massimo Oddo and Daniele Bonera. Massimo Ambrosini, Gianluca Zambrotta and Ronaldinho have all recovered from their respective injuries and are available for selection. Allegri is hoping to have Thiago Silva available with the Brazilian defender fighting against the clock to recover from an ankle problem. Madrid make the trip to the San Siro looking to continue their superb start to life under Jose Mourinho and knowing a win will see them qualify for the last 16. Since Mourinho took charge this summer, Madrid are yet to be beaten and have picked up 10 wins from 13 games in all competitions. Their dangerman is Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 11 goals in his last six appearances. With Ronaldo and his fellow forwards in such good form, Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes if his side can keep it tight at the back then the victory will be theirs on Wednesday night. "If we keep a clean sheet we will win the match. The big teams in Europe who manage to go far are almost always the ones who concede the fewest goals. That's the key to success. A good defence wins titles," said Khedira, whose team have conceded just five goals under Mourinho. The German international knows it will not be easy, though, as seven-times European champions Milan can ill afford to drop more points. "It will be a difficult match. (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Alexandre) Pato, Ronaldinho, Robinho, also (Clarence) Seedorf, (Kevin-Prince) Boateng...they are all exceptional players and even more so when you allow them to play their own game," Khedira said. "(Gennaro) Gattuso and (Andrea) Pirlo are also very dangerous. If you don't take them seriously they can have you up against the ropes." He added: "Our objective is to get the three points to get through to the last 16. "We played an almost perfect game against them at the Bernabeu, defending very well against their strong attack. "We are in good condition to overcome a very strong team like Milan away from home and get this win."

Match Report

Leon late show spares Mourinho`s San Siro blushes Substitute Pedro Leon struck an injury-time equaliser to clinch a 2-2 draw against AC Milan to send Real Madrid through to the last 16 of the Champions League, preserving the Spanish club`s unbeaten record under coach Jose Mourinho. Milan replacement Filippo Inzaghi looked to have consigned Madrid to defeat after netting twice in the second half to help the Italian outfit overturn a 1-0 deficit, given to Madrid by Gonzalo Higuain on the stroke of half-time. However, with Mourinho set to suffer a losing return to San Siro where he enjoyed so much success with previous club Inter Milan, Leon popped up in the fourth minute of additional time to drill in the equaliser. The result means nine-times European champions Madrid are guaranteed a place in the knockout stages even though they lost their 100% record in Group G. Both sides had chances during an entertaining opening period, although it was in-form Madrid - with 10 wins from 13 competitive games under Mourinho this season - who looked much the more likely scorers for large periods. In the opening 10 minutes the visitors went close through Higuain and Pepe and then, after Kevin-Prince Boateng fired straight at Iker Casillas for Milan, Madrid had four more decent efforts in quick succession. Xabi Alonso fired a 30-yard volley just wide, Angel Di Maria hit the outside of the post when he perhaps should have done better before Andrea Pirlo produced two goal-saving headers one after another to deny Higuain and Di Maria. Sami Khedira then headed a corner against the post, although it would not have counted as referee Howard Webb had spotted a foul. Madrid were looking in total control but Milan`s star-studded attack were not without threat either and Casillas did superbly to deny Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the on-loan Barcelona striker had been put clean through by Boateng. Ibrahimovic had another chance in the 36th minute after being put in by Ronaldinho`s clever chip, but the Swedish hitman`s lob over Casillas - whose had recklessly charged out to the edge of the area - landed harmlessly away from goal and Madrid could breath again. The Spanish giants were back on the attack soon after that with another Alonso thunderbolt being unconvincingly saved by Christian Abbiati. Mourinho`s side deserved a goal for their first half efforts, and they got the breakthrough they had been looking for right on the stroke of half-time. Di Maria charged in from the left wing and threaded a superb disguised pass into fellow Argentinian Higuain, who collected possession by the penalty spot before sliding his shot past the unprotected Abbiati. That was Madrid`s 700th goal in the European Cup, comfortably becoming the first club to reach the milestone. Madrid were back on the attack at the start of the second half with Cristiano Ronaldo bringing a flying save out of Abbiati in the 47th minute with a dipping 25-yard shot. However, just when the Primera Division outfit looked to have the match under complete control, Milan equalised out of the blue through veteran Inzaghi, who took advantage of some poor defending from Madrid to net his 45th champions League goal. Pepe made a mess of trying to clear a through-ball, allowing Ibrahimovic to break down the left and then Casillas could only parry the Swede`s cross up into the air, allowing the predatory Inzaghi the easy task of heading home from close range. That was in the 68th minute, and 10 minutes later the 37-year-old netted what looked like being the winner. The Italy international looked just offside as Gennaro Gattuso played a pass over the top, but the flag stayed down and Inzaghi got to the ball just before Ricardo Carvalho and Casillas to slide the ball in. Massimiliano Allegri`s men must have felt that was enough to sentence Madrid to defeat, but the visitors refused to give up and Leon latched onto fellow replacement Karim Benzema`s neat pass before drilling his shot through Abbiati`s legs, sparking wild scenes in the Spanish side`s camp.
