Massimiliano Allegri, AC Milan manager, believes that his team must have an offensive mindset if they want to have any chance of reaching the semi-finales. “We have to score. I hope we’re learned something, we know how they play more or less. It will be a beautiful match, very difficult on a psychological level,” he said. Allegri also highlighted the importance of “no committing errors” that could aid Barça in creating goalscoring chances.
On the Thiago Silva’s absence, injured this weekend against AS Roma, allegri admitted that he’ll be missing a key player: “He’s a champions and we’ll miss him, but Nesta is in reasonable form and luckily we have other defenders that can play. I’d like to face Barça with a complete squad, but we’re ready.”(via FCBarcelona.com)
