Ambrosini wants team effort

Massimo Ambrosini has called for a united team effort from his Milan teammates tonight to try to overcome Barcelona.

The quarter-final second leg is in the balance, with the aggregate score still set at 0-0. Ambrosini, who is likely to captain the side tonight, believes that only an collective effort will help break down a Barcelona side that will make it hard for them.

“They make you run without possession until you are empty,” reflected Ambrosini to the Press ahead of the match tonight.

“In terms of the game we have to face them with courage. With a strong attitude. Everyone must work for the group, from the goalkeeper to the striker.

“As captain I can say that it is a special experience to be here, but it would be even more beautiful if we progress to the next round.

“We do not know what it feels like to beat Barcelona here in recent years. We’ll try to have to do it ourselves.”
