AC Milan keep their focus on Serie A

Massimiliano Allegri says his side will not be distracted by their Champions League draw with Tottenham Hotspur when they host Roma in Serie A tonight.

Massimiliano Allegri, the AC Milan coach, said his side will not be distracted by their Champions League draw with Tottenham Hotspur when they host Roma in Serie A tonight.

The Rossoneri were drawn against the Premier League side in one of the stand-out match-ups in the last 16.

Milan are keen to improve their recent record in Europe, having been dumped out of the competition at the same stage last season by English opposition; they were beaten home and away by Manchester United.

Despite the obvious attraction of next year's clash, Allegri believes his side is looking only at the domestic league.

"Our only focus is on Roma," he said. "The game is very important for the standings and to finish 2010 in the best way. "Hence, I don't think there will be any problems regarding my team's concentration."
