Milan boss Pioli on Liverpool game: “They are not unbeatable defensively.”

Milan boss Stefano Pioli has stated that Liverpool aren’t unbeatable in a defensive sense and they will look to exploit their weaknesses in mid-week.

Pioli spoke to DAZN, following Milan’s win over Salernitana in Serie A. While he reviewed the win against the Salerno-based side, he also looked ahead to the game against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

He stated: “Having met them already gives us more information about them, at a certain level like in the Champions League you cannot fail to have quality and be intense. They will have to be our characteristics, Liverpool have a thousand strengths: they have fantastic strikers in front. 

“And one of the strongest teams, we will try to do our best in a great environment and we will try to exploit them, knowing that you have to give them something but knowing that they are not so impenetrable in the defensive phase.”

Milan have to pick up a win against Liverpool and hope for a favourable result in the game involving Porto and Atletico Madrid.
