Barcelona holds a two-point lead over AC Milan in Group H of the UEFA Champions League tournament. With a win at home they’d give themselves a commanding lead. If they lost, AC Milan would move ahead of them in the table. AC Milan and Barcelona have been meeting a lot lately and they know each other well.
“Every year we face each other at some stage,” Barcelona full-back Dani Alves said, via UEFA.com. “Historically, Milan are a very big team and when a team has the history that they do, you have to respect them regardless of them not having the best time of it right now. They never seem to be having a great time of it when we meet, but they have always presented us with extremely tough challenges.”
The last time these met, a fortnight ago, they tied. Alves doesn’t expect anything to be different this time around.
“I don’t expect things to be any different on Wednesday,” added the Brazil defender. “I hope we are a bit more clinical in front of goal compared with matchday three, because I don’t expect Milan to play any differently.”
