The draw between Milan’s rivals in the UEFA EUROPOL qualifying round for next season’s Champions League final is in, with a draw between the two teams set to take place on Wednesday evening.
Ancelotti, the Italian coach who guided the Rossoneri to the Champions League last season, was named the top coach in the draw.
The draw has been delayed for 24 hours, to allow the clubs to finalise their match-day squads and transfer details, as well as the date of the clash between Milan (28 May) and Barcelona (4 June).
The first leg, between Milan on Saturday and Barcelona on Sunday, will be played in the stadium of the San Siro, home of both clubs.
In order to secure the tie, both teams will have to secure a spot in next year’s Champions Leagues.
It is believed that the Milan-Barcelona tie could be postponed until the end of May if the sides fail to agree a match-date.
It has been a long road for Milan, who were relegated from Serie A in 2014, before their promotion to the top flight last season.
They have been in Serie A for six years and have a record of two consecutive Europa League campaigns.
In 2018, they were knocked out of the Champions Leage by Atletico Madrid, before being re-established as champions.
The tie will see the Rossini’s best chance of qualifying for next year´s competition come in their favour, with the draw set to be the first for the Milan team since their promotion from Serie B.
