Abbiati: It won't be a challenge between Messi and me"

The goal keeper of the 'Rossoneri' is confident in taking good result against the azulgranas and already has in mind the match against Leo Messi though the shadow of Barça is much longer than that of Argentina.

"I know that Messi is the best in the world but Barça is not just Messi. It is a challenge between him and me. A single player can not be analyzed, is unpredictable," he said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Regarding the meeting, Abbiati believed to be key defensive strength of their own and the ability to take advantage of the opportunity to give FC Barcelona.

"They create twenty times every game, so we have to take ours. We played two good games against them but suffer a bit. We have a 50% chance. Not forget that we are Milan," he said. (via SPORT)
