Christian Poulsen: 'Ajax need to beat AC Milan'

Ajax midfielder Christian Poulsen admits that his team need to beat AC Milan to stand any chance of Champions League progression.

Midfielder Christian Poulsen has conceded that his Ajax side must collect a positive result from tonight's clash against AC Milan if they are to stand any chance of reaching the Champions League knockout stages.

The Dutch champions were defeated 4-0 by Barcelona on matchday one last month, while Milan recorded a 2-0 win over Celtic.

As a result, former Liverpool player Poulsen has urged his team to pick up all three points in the Amsterdam ArenA.

"It's hard to make a prediction, but what I do know is that we really need a good result. That's the only way we can achieve something in this group," Poulsen told Goal.com

"If we want to progress, we must beat AC Milan. Getting a good result against Milan also shows that we have ambition."

These two sides last met back in the 2010 group phase, when Ajax claimed a win and a draw.
