Zapata eyeing second place with AC Milan
Milan’s run in the Champions League ended after a 4-0 defeat to Barcelona Tuesday evening at the Camp Nou, but the 26-year-old Colombian international believes that his team must move on and concentrate on continuing to climb the league table.
“we did well at San Siro against Barcelona, it is just a shame that we were not able to do what we wanted at the Camp Nou,” he stated to Milan Channel.
The Rossoneri are still enjoying an undefeated start to the league since the beginning of the new year, and as a result have risen to third in the table, only two points behind Napoli.
They return to league action at home this Sunday against Palermo, a team whose dismal record leaves them at the bottom of the table with relegation a possible outcome at the end of the season.
Nonetheless, Zapata urged his teammates not to take their opponents lightly.
“We have a tough game on Sunday against Palermo as we know that we have to do well because we want to finish second in the league.
“The Rosanero will be hard to break down and will play on the counter-attack.”
