Pioli: “If You Make Certain Mistakes Opponents Will Take Advantage”

Ahead of the Rossoneri’s clash against Premier League outfits Chelsea in match-week four of the Champions League, Milan boss Pioli spoke in an interview previewing the vital fixture.

In the previous fixture, Pioli’s side underwent a setback as the London Blues caused mayhem in a 3-0 victory over the Serie A giants at the Stamford Bridge.

With three vital points on the line in order to potentially clinch the top spot of Group E within the continental tournament, Milan seek redemption within their home-stomping ground this evening.

In an interview with Sport Mediaset (via MilanNews) , the Rossoneri gaffer provided his insight on the vital fixture, urging his side to remain cautious:

“If you make certain mistakes you have great opponents with great quality who take advantage of it. The technical level and the choices, the compactness of the team and the management of certain situations must be of a high level.”

In addition, the Italian tactician touched upon the Portuguese winger Rafael Leao’s importance within the competition:

“Leao continues to be an important player for our attacking phase and is decisive. We only played three games in the Champions League but it is right to expect important performances from a player with his qualities and his talent.”
