Abbiati: AC Milan cannot afford to slip up against PSV

AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati admits overcoming Champions League qualifying opponents PSV Eindhoven is critical.

The keeper admits defeat could wreck their season before it starts.

"Failing to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League would be incredibly damaging, under all aspects," Abbiati told the Corriere dello Sport.

"I would struggle to imagine or endure a Champions League without Milan being in it. We can't allow ourselves to be stopped by PSV Eindhoven.

"Qualification is in our grasps."
