Golden words Bernardo. The reason is that from this point we MUST have an eye on the Manchester game. Big margin wins are great but they are better on the bigger stage. Low profile wins will do for now as the Old Trafford game is just around the corner and too many goals from this point to the Manchester game are not very good. I would prefer Kaka, Seedorf, Pirlo, Cafu and others if possible to get a goal or two as it boosts the players' shooting skills and confidence.bernmilan1 said:I would just be very happy if we score on more goal than them
Yesterday the team did some ball possession and a small practice game. A group did sprints and another did shots. Today they listened to Carlo and practiced sprints and agility and did a big practice game.ANCELOTTI LOOKS FOR MESSINA REPEAT

MILANELLO - Carlo Ancelotti set the tone for the Lazio encounter at the Saturday press conference at Milanello. The coach opened by talking about the opposition and said: 'Lazio have had an up and down season, with some good periods and some difficult ones. It is difficult to judge how they will play, so will be a particular game and I need to use individuals in my team in a certain way. We have to do well against Lazio so that we arrive at the crucial period of the season in good shape, starting with the cup competitions.'
Ancelotti took time to look back at Wednesday’s game where he left Milan had leanrt something: 'We put on a good performance which was fundamental after two defeats and tomorrow we have to repeat that performance and be as concentrated as possible. We have come on since those defeats: at Livorno we made mistakes all over and against Bologna is more down to incidents.'
One of the key players for Milan, Andriy Shevchenko, has confirmed he could be available for Sunday’s game: 'Sheva came through a training game and is ready but we’ll see what reaction he has after training today. I have to assess his condition, he’s been out for only five days so he hasn’t lost much fitness.
With the derby coming up, attention turned to Inter: They are doing well, they’ve found the right balance but it will be difficult to battle for top spot although second is a possibility.'
Returning to the Milan attack, the boss then discussed Hernan Crespo’s recent form: 'No one in this club puts pressure on a player my saying goals will depend on whether you are selected or not. It is always our intention to get the best out of everyone.'
Ancelotti also believes that Juve’s 1-0 defeat to Sampdoria can be seen in the same light as the Rossoneri’s set-back against Bologna: 'You can’t make any judgements and they have another chance to put things right again just as we did at Messina. One thing we will know before we go out tomorrow evening is the Juve result which is an added benefit. I still have to decide on the best back-four as they are all in good form, two out of Nesta, Maldini, Costacurta and Stam will play in the centre, and it's between Stam and Cafu for the right-back spot, as for the penalty-taker, it will be either Sheva or Pirlo as it always is.'
