`Winning Italian Supercup would help title tilt`
Rome: AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri believes that winning this weekend`s Italian Supercup in Beijing could give his side a boost in their hopes to retain the Serie A title.
Champions Milan will take on cup winners and bitter neighbours Inter in the pre-season showpiece event in the Chinese capital.
"We`ve worked hard these last two weeks even though the team isn`t in tip-top shape physically," said Allegri.
"It`s an important game and we must be focused. We know we`re playing Inter and on top of that we`re playing for a trophy.”
"It`s also a derby so our approach will be crucial. We must be motivated."
As for the coming season, Allegri believes the two Milan rivals will be the teams to beat.
"For the moment ourselves and Inter are the favourites despite how the others have strengthened.”
"Starting off with a victory in Beijing wouldn`t be a bad thing."
