Ancelotti feels the title battle is in the balance.
“The Scudetto battle is uncertain,” he told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “It’s up to Milan to win all of their games as they have a two-point lead. They’ll win the championship though.
“Their elimination from the Champions League will certainly give them a decisive push for victory in Serie A. The Rossoneri will have more mental energy for the title now.
“In 2004 we were knocked out by Deportivo after a 4-1 first leg win. That was a massive psychological shock, but we recovered by beating Empoli with a late goal. And then we won the Scudetto.”
