AC Milan are currently at the top of the Serie A table for the first time in two years.
“Milan will be in buoyant mood because they are at the top of the standings,” said Stankovic.
“But we will be very motivated to do well.
“I’m not worried because even though we have lost a few points in recent weeks, Milan are just three points clear of us.
“I’m sure we will turn things around on Sunday.
“Motivation will not be lacking because the derby is always a beautiful and important game.”
