Champions League: Calabria says Milan have "last chance"

AC Milan full-back Davide Calabria says their Champions League match against FC Porto on Wednesday is win or bust as they attempt to qualify for the knockout stages.

The Rossoneri host the Portuguese outfit still seeking their first points in this season's group stage and are available at 1/1 to win on Wednesday evening and are 3/1 to edge home by a one-goal margin.

Milan endure Euro strife

It has been a real struggle for Stefano Pioli's side this season as they compete in Europe's top competition for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

They were defeated 3-2 away at Liverpool on the opening match day, before Atletico Madrid sunk them 2-1 at the San Siro two weeks later.

In their last match they were narrowly defeated 1-0 by Porto, meaning they sit bottom and pointless in what many described as the "Group of Death" when the draw was made.

Domestically, their season so far has been a big success with Pioli's men sat second after ten wins and a draw from 11 games - only behind Luciano Spalletti's Napoli on goal difference.

Speaking ahead of their pivotal contest with Porto, Italy international Calabria says they have the quality to get what is required and also believes the table is a harsh reflection of their performances.

Calabria aims to take last chance

"We will be ready, it's the last possibility to remain in the Champions League," the 24-year-old full-back said.

"We believe in it. We have the qualities to play a great game and go through. We must believe in it until the last minute.

He added: "There have been episodes that have led to this ranking. I don't think we deserve it, but we have to take them into account."
