Atalanta midfielder Fernando Tissone believes they're facing AC Milan just at the right time.

"Playing against the big sides always brings strong emotions and a special motivation with it," the Argentine ace explained.

"In the first game we played excellently and got the win, even though we were unable to enjoy it with our fans as it was behind closed doors. Now we are looking for a good result at San Siro.

"But for us it is as simple as continuing to give 100 per cent in every game as we always do."
