Zapata: AC Milan will do well against PSV at San Siro
The Rossoneri hope to impress in their second leg of their Champions League playoff tie against the Dutch side after ending the first leg in Eindhoven with a 1-1 draw.
Zapata spoke to Sportal.it about Wednesday’s game and insisted that the Diavolo will succeed in front of their fans.
“The draw in Eindhoven was a good result, but now we must win in front of our home fans,” said the 26-year-old.
“We have to beat them. It’s essential for us to reach the group stage of the Champions League. We will do all it takes.
“PSV? They are a strong team. They are small, but very fast.
“You can see that they’re ahead of us in preparation.
“Playing at the San Siro will be a plus for us. It will give us a big hand, as always.”
“Who was the most important purchase of the summer? I say [Gonzalo] Higuain. He’s a very dangerous striker.
“He does everything well. He’s a great goalscorer with good dribbling and speed. In short, he’s a complete player.
“Which Milan player would I put my bets on succeeding? Well, to leave out the usual names, I’ll say Petagna.
“I really believe in him. He has great potential.”
