Rossoneri set to face Dutch giants in order to reach the Champions League.
AC Milan have drawn PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League play-off round, as they look to qualify for the group stages after finishing third in Serie A last season.
The Rossoneri were handed the tough draw in Nyon on Friday morning, but will still be favourites to progress at the expense of Phillip Cocu’s men.
Having secured their place in the draw with a last gasp win in Siena on the final day of last season, Milan will now hope to ensure they will be present in Europe’s premier competition alongside Italian duo Juventus and Napoli.
However, coach Massimiliano Allegri may have a few selection headaches due to injury concerns, with Mario Balotelli the latest star name to suffer a knock.

The club confirmed on Friday morning that the Italian international had suffered a muscle injury during the win over Los Angeles Galaxy earlier this week, and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be passed fit for the first leg which takes place on either August 20 or 21 at the Philips Stadion.
Elsewhere, Daniele Bonera is certain to miss out, while Philippe Mexes, Mattia De Sciglio and Robinho have all missed significant playing time during the pre-season schedule.
Nevertheless, the Rossoneri will be expected to prevail over the Eredivisie outfit, although they will be fully aware of the level of difficulty of the task ahead.
The second leg is scheduled for either August 27 or 28 at San Siro, and it will be a reminder of the thrilling Champions League semi-final between these two sides back in 2005.
