Massimiliano Allegri believes Milan and Zenit St Petersburg will take their bid to qualify from Group C to the last matchday of the Champions League.

The two sides meet in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday, and Allegri admitted his team is in a very competitive group.

“I knew it was a tough group and I think that Milan and Zenit will fight to qualify until the last matchday,” the 45-year-old told reporters.

When asked about the man in charge of Zenit, former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti, Allegri had nothing but praise for his counterpart.

“Spalletti is showing he’s a great trainer. He was close to winning the Scudetto with Roma and he has won the league title in Russia. He always gives a clear identity to his squads.”

Milan midfielder Riccardo Montolivo said he was excited at being involved in Europe’s premier club competition once again, having played in the tournament with Fiorentina two years ago.

“I am glad to be involved in the biggest club tournament again – to accept a new challenge and show my best,” the midfielder said.

“Playing for the national team has brought me to a new level and with each match we look better. We are still finding our way, tactically, but I am sure we will find the best option – for me, and the team.”
