MN: Milan smile as Champions League draw spares them tough group

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will face the likes of Chelsea, RB Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League group stage this fall. The Rossoneri were pleased with the draw and there is great optimism. 

Stefano Pioli’s men were knocked out of the group stage last season, taking on the likes of Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Porto. The draw was more kind to them this season, thanks to the fact that they were in Pot 1.

As highlighted by MilanNews, the draw could have been a lot worse and Milan are certainly content with the outcome. Chelsea are the favourites to win the group, but Milan are expected to make it through to the knockout stage as well.

Milan cannot afford to underestimate Salzburg and Dinamo, though, and they will have to make the most of the opportunity given to them. Making it through to the knockout stage will not only be good for publicity but also financially.
