Gattuso’s men, AC Milan, drew the Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Europa League Round of 32 in Nyon today.

The two -egged affair will see the first leg played in Razgrad and the second leg in Milano. The tie will begin in February which will give Rino sometime to get settled in the dressing room. The recent win over Roberto Donadoni’s Bologna F.C. was a positive start for Gattuso’s men and we would like to see the same results, in better fashion of course as that was a scrappy win, in Europe too.

Milan have qualified from their group as a leader with two hefty wins over Austria Wien. Ludogorets are coming in as the runner up from group C. On paper, Milan should win the tie comfortably but we have to keep in mind that Ludogorets are in good shape and form. Ludogorets are sitting just 2 points off the top spot in the Bulgarian league.

Milan will need to start firing on all cylinders and should focus on getting through to the Round of 16
