AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists there's no reason for panic after defeat to Atalanta.

The Rossoneri have lost both their opening San Siro games by 1-0 results, failing to get a single goal against relegation candidates Sampdoria and Atalanta. The only other time this has happened was 1930-31.

“How bad is the situation for Milan? We’ll, we’ve got one more point than at this stage last season,” shrugged the Coach.

Their 3-1 victory at Bologna is starting to resemble a freak occurrence after another uninspired performance in front of frustrated fans.

“Obviously it’s not positive to lose this way, but now we have to look ahead to the Champions League so we can take this weight off our shoulders.

“We need more belief when going forward and finding the goal, as we’re pushing in fits and starts. Above all we require more determination and conviction.

“It went well at Bologna and we were able to win, while today it went less well. After Atalanta scored, it all became much more difficult.”
