Milan assistant manager Mauro Tassotti admits they must beat Catania “to recover our lead over Fiorentina.”
The Rossoneri welcome Catania this evening, but they are currently in fourth place because the Viola beat Sampdoria 3-0 earlier this afternoon.
“Up until a few rounds ago we had a one-point advantage, while now we are behind with a game in hand,” Tassotti told Milan Channel.
“We must do well tonight to recover our lead over Fiorentina. Catania will try to play their game and take the initiative, as is only right.
“They are a strong side and have the opportunity to get into Europe, so they’ll want points just as badly as we do.”
