Woe betide if your legs tremble in front of the Yellow Wall of Signal Iduna Park, those roars, those deafening choruses, that overwhelming passion must be transformed into positive energy by Milan. This is what Stefano Pioli wants, so much so that on the eve of the delicate Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund he broadcasts the choruses of German supporters in the Milanello loudspeakers. "It was an idea born watching Borussia's home games, it was born thinking about the environment we will find. A way to get used to it, preparing for the match both from a tactical and environmental point of view, since they probably won't even hear my voice. They will be prepared in detail for tomorrow evening", explains Pioli at the press conference. Tomorrow's challenge, although not decisive, is a challenge that can change the balance of the group. PSG is the only team that can already boast a victory, is ahead and is the favorite for the passage of the round. Then there is another pass and to contend for it are Milan and Borussia, with Newcastle not willing to play the role of extra. Tomorrow will therefore be a direct confrontation. Four more games will be missing, but tomorrow's match can draw an important sign. But Pioli does not want to hear about a draw in the Dortmund bubble.

"If we like a draw? We always go on the pitch to give our best and win the game. It's an important game, but then there will be four more games. After not winning against Newcastle, tomorrow will be an important game. They have not lost at home in the Champions League since November 2021. We have great confidence and we will give it our all." Pioli warns about the offensive play of the Germans "playing with five in front" but knows that they are formation prone to unbalance, leaving the field open to the restarts that Theo Hernandez "will have to exploit with his speed". Milan can and must make a result, in a very complicated iron group and perhaps for this reason stimulating. Evenings like those of tomorrow must be faced with determination and concentration. Pioli is sure that Milan will have the right attitude also because "we will find an atmosphere similar to that of Liverpool - warns Pioli -, but we have grown in recent years. We will have to take energy from this situation." Young people who have grown up and have treasured experiences and advice. Perhaps it would have been useful to have Zlatan Ibrahimovic close to the team, who turns 42 today and who has experienced many games like this. Perhaps in the future, after this sabbatical year, there will be a place for him in society. Meanwhile, his former teammates will try to put his advice into practice in front of the yellow wall. There is a qualification to be achieved which is the real seasonal goal requested by the club and a lot passes through Dortmund.
