AC Milan suffered domestic setbacks at the weekend in the 2-1 defeat to Juventus in Serie A and also saw them lag further behind pace setters Lazio in Serie A, trailing them 5 points but Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri wants his players to put that to one side as they face Spanish Giants Real Madrid tonight at the San Siro in the champions league. The defeat to Juventus was their first home league defeat in 10 months and was disappointing for all at the club.

"I am disappointed by the result as we didn't deserve to lose," said coach Allegri. "We played well and created many goalscoring opportunities. We must put this defeat behind us and bounce back immediately in order to prepare well for the game against Real Madrid."

Milan are also trailing Madrid 5 points in their group G in the champions league and are neck and neck with Ajax on 4 points. Milan midfielder Ronaldinho knows his side can't lax in the early stages of the game and must take the game to Madrid. That was Milan's downfall in the repeat fixture last month with the rossoneri conceding 2 goals in the opening 14 minutes.

"To concede twice early on made life difficult for us," said Ronaldinho. "We must be focused from start to finish. This is a very important game for us and we must only think of doing what the coach asks us to do in order to clinch three points."

Madrid make the trip to Italy with their heads held very high as they continue their glorious start with Jose Mourinho and they know that a victory will see them in the last sixteen of the competition. Madrid are currently unbeaten and have won 10 out of the 13 games they've played this campaign in all competitions.

Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes his side will come away with the spoils tonight just so long as the defensive unit is efficient and doesn't leak anything.

"If we keep a clean sheet we will win the match. The big teams in Europe who manage to go far are almost always the ones who concede the fewest goals. That's the key to success. A good defence wins titles," said Khedira. "It will be a difficult match. (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Alexandre) Pato, Ronaldinho, Robinho, also (Clarence) Seedorf, (Kevin-Prince) Boateng...they are all exceptional players and even more so when you allow them to play their own game," Khedira said. "(Gennaro) Gattuso and (Andrea) Pirlo are also very dangerous. If you don't take them seriously they can have you up against the ropes."

He added: "Our objective is to get the three points to get through to the last 16. We played an almost perfect game against them at the Bernabeu, defending very well against their strong attack. We are in good condition to overcome a very strong team like Milan away from home and get this win."
