The Rossoneri have saluted just once in all competitions since late October â€“ which was a 3-1 triumph in their last Champions League outing against FC Basel â€“ but their form domestically has been less than desirable.
Draws with Lazio, Chievo and Genoa plus losses to Parma and Fiorentina in their past five Serie A outings has Milan lacking confidence but Brazilian playmaker Kaka is determined to change that in Tuesday nightâ€™s important Champions League clash with Celtic.
"This is going to be a very difficult match. But, by winning tomorrow, we could kick-start our season," said Kaka.
"It's definitely a challenge to put indifferent form and off-field problems to the side.
"At this moment, the atmosphere is a little bit tense, but this tension is not bad sometimes.
"Sometimes you can use this tension and this pressure for a good reason and it could be a bit motivation for us.
"We are always under pressure at Milanâ€¦the pressure to end that bad run certainly gets more and more."
