AX Armani Exchange Milan will face Bayern Munich in Germany in the sixth round of Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. The team coached by Ettore Messina is still undefeated, both in EuroLeague and Italian league, but they know that Bayern's game is gonna be a tough one.

"We'll face a very well prepared team", coach Ettore Messina said in the introductory press conference. "Their game is based on a strong defense and a precise execution of the offensive plays. It'll be a very difficult game for us". 

Coach Messina explained that without Malcolm Delaney, who's out with a hamstring injury, some changes will be made in the rotations: "Delaney's absence will force us to change our rotations a little bit. But, as usual, controlling the boards and a good ball-movement will be keys against their aggressiveness", the coach revealed. 

Italian forward Pippo Ricci confirmed that the game against Bayern will be a very tough one for Milan: "We know that we're going to play on a very difficult court. They're a strong and tough team and they're improving in every single game", Ricci said. "Our goal is to play for 40 minutes with great energy and attention to the details".
