Sacchi: Milan could surprise Barca

Arrigo Sacchi is looking forward to Milan meeting Barcelona this midweek and warned the Catalans that the Champions League can surprise you.

Barca head into this Champions League Last 16 clash against Milan as the favourites to progress, and Sacchi admits that they do have most of the advantages in play.

“There is a big difference between Barcelona and Milan, the difference is in favour of Barca,” commented the former Milan Coach to reporters today.

“Of course the Catalans are favourites, but in a Champions League game, if you are not 100 per cent focused, you can run into many pitfalls.

“Barca are harmonious, modern and attractive, they illuminate every game. Xavi Hernandez’ return to fitness is important, as besides being a great player he is the most important, the true leader, for the style of play.

“It will be a great match between two teams with great history and a charm. Barca are in a fantastic moment, but Milan are experiencing one of their better moments and they are always a tough opponent to deal with.”
