Albertini warns AC Milan of "tough" Champions League opponents Atletico Madrid

FIGC chief Demetrio Albertini has commented on AC Milan's Champions League draw with Atletico Madrid.

Albertini played for both clubs.

"It will be a tough match," the former Diavolo midfielder told Milan News.

"Diego Simeone's side plays good football and the stadium will be very hot.

"As always, you think about the history of a club and that's why we tend to underestimate Atletico, but, at the moment, they are one of the most in-form in Europe.

"If they are in first place with Barcelona and above Real Madrid in the Spanish League then it means that they won't be easy to deal with.

"However, as always, it depends on how the clubs are doing at the time. Real Madrid could have been a high level opponent, especially for their tradition, but Atletico are not that far behind."
