Massimo Ambrosini has warned his AC Milan team-mates that Lazio will pose a stern test for the Rossoneri in Saturday's Serie A encounter at San Siro.
Head coach Massimiliano Allegri's men are currently trailing the Stadio Olimpico side by two points in the league table, and Ambrosini has set his sights on three points as Milan continue their push for Champions League qualification.
"We’re going through a delicate period at the moment and the game against Lazio will be tough," the combative midfielder told Milan Channel.
"Saturday’s match is important as there are less and less games left to go. We have to think about winning the head-to-head games.
"We’ll have to play intelligent football and paradoxically, Saturday’s game will be the most delicate. It’s a tough game to read as they make you play badly and they have dangerous players."
The match at San Siro is scheduled to kick off at 20:45CET.
