Robinho has conceded that his Milan side can’t just look to defend in their Champions League game at Barcelona.
The Diavolo have a 2-0 first leg advantage, but the Brazilian has underlined how important an away goal could be.
“We expect a very strong and difficult atmosphere, although Milan are ready to play a great game,” the 29-year-old noted to COPE.
“Barcelona are a great team, but anything can happen in football and it is not easy to beat Milan,” he added.
“I don’t think that we should only play to defend – we have quality and we have to attack as well as defend well.
“When we have the ball we have to play. We have to play to score a goal.”
Milan are expected to play with plenty of men behind the ball, a tactic that city neighbours Inter used when they eliminated Barcelona in the 2010 Champions League semi-finals.
“Inter defended a lot, but Barca were able to score. We have quality to play. We have to look to get a goal.”
