AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri was happy to get Mario Balotelli on the field for the1-1 draw at PSV Eindhoven in the first-leg of their Champions League qualifier.

This was Balotelli's Champions League debut in a Milan jersey, as he was cup-tied when joining from Manchester City in January.

"Mario did very well tonight, including off the ball, while of course we all knew his technique and talent," said Allegri.
