Milan growing, claims Allegri

Milan go into tomorrow's Champions League meeting with Malaga imbued with new confidence, according to Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The Italian giants have endured a nightmarish start to the season at home and abroad and lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture at La Rosaleda two weeks ago.

But thumping Chievo 5-1 on Saturday and taking five points from the last available nine in Serie A has emboldened their under pressure tactician.

“I think the win against Chievo will be an important one for us,” Allegri said at his Press conference. “We're a team that's gaining confidence. Playing at San Siro is never easy but my young players are proving their quality and getting used to the experience of winning there.”

“Malaga are a great passing team. They have great technical qualities as they showed against us in the first game.”

Manuel Pellegrini's side will be virtually assured of qualification and top spot in Group C if they pull off another shock at San Siro.
