According to AC Milan director Paolo Maldini, both Chelsea and his team will advance to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals this year.
The Serie A teams were pitted against RB Salzburg, Dinamo Zagreb, and the Blues.
Maldini expressed his happiness with the results of the teams in Milan's group in a conversation with Milan TV.
“It is a group that sees us as top seeds, so on paper it might seem less difficult compared to last season."
“Salzburg are a strong team who might not have a great history, but are still difficult to face, while we took on Dinamo Zagreb a few years ago in a preliminary round.
“The favourites are Milan and Chelsea. It’s good to have a strong team in the group with you, as it can make qualification a little simpler, "Maldini said.
