Allegri relishing Nou Camp test
March 29, 2012 14:52:38 UK
AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri believes his side can get a positive result at the Nou Camp after seeing them hold Barcelona to a goalless draw on Wednesday night.
Milan held off sustained pressure from Barca at the San Siro but should have scored themselves, Robinho missing the best chance early on for the hosts.
Pep Guardiola's side are 9.50 to win the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie 2-1 on 3rd April, while Milan can be backed at 26.00 to get a 1-0 victory. A 1-1 draw, which would be enough to see Milan qualify, is available at 12.00.
We are happy and we know that in Barcelona if there is a score draw we will qualify. Massimiliano Allegri
And Allegri is confident his players can get the away goal in Spain they need to progress in the competition.
He told Sky Sports: "We had a good game, especially in the first half.
"We had a few favourable situations in the first half and a couple in the second. Barcelona also had their chances.
"We are happy and we know that in Barcelona if there is a score draw we will qualify.
"I applaud my players, especially when things weren't going our way.
It will be difficult to score in Spain, but we know there are two outcomes that will work in our favour."
