Stefano Pioli insists Milan ‘are ready’ to face FC Porto in the Champions League and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will get more than a mere cameo appearance.

It kicks off at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT), you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from that game and Inter vs. Sheriff on the LIVEBLOG.

“It’s an important game, we prepared well and we are ready,” assured Pioli on Sport Mediaset.

“We are united. We haven’t picked up the points we deserved over the first two Champions League games, so we’ll try to do better this evening.

“It’s a strong team, our opponents are strong too, so we need a performance with focus and a great deal of quality.”

Ibrahimovic made his comeback at the weekend in a 3-2 win over Hellas Verona, so can he make a cameo appearance tonight?

“I think he can play a bit more than 15 minutes tonight.”

It is Pioli’s birthday tomorrow, so how is he planning to celebrate?

“We’ll talk about that later…”
