Tiemoue Bakayoko spoke at the pre-match press conference before the Europa League match against Real Betis.
️ @TimoeB08: "@RealBetis are a good team. It's important to win tomorrow to reach 9 points.— AC Milan (@acmilan) October 24, 2018
We were disappointed with the derby, especially because we lost in the last minute but we are now focused on tomorrow's game" #MilanBetis
Bakayoko said that despite the loss to Inter Milan, the team is now focused on the match against Real Betis. Getting a win in a Europa League match, and against a Spanish team at that, would go a long way towards calming everyone down and getting the bad taste of a last-minute loss to Milan’s biggest rival.
