AC Milan defender Philippe Mexes says a third-place finish would be like winning the Scudetto.

Milan have recovered from a dismal start to the season to all but secure Champions League qualification.

“We knew we’d have to fight until the end for third place and that’s what we’ll do in the match against Siena,” the centre-back stated following the 0-0 draw with Roma.

“Given how we started this campaign, getting into the Champions League would be like winning the title for us.

“We can’t slip up.”
