Milan-Barcelona is the CL…

Barcelona director Andoni Zubizarreta is again looking forward to a European Cup clash against Milan.

The two teams have been regularly drawn with each other in recent seasons and they will meet at San Siro again on Tuesday night.

“It wouldn’t be the Champions League unless we played Milan,” Zubizarreta smiled on Monday ahead of the trip to Italy.

“We have played each other a lot. We are going to a stadium in which the opponent does not mind closing up against us and that to us will make things more complicated.

“In no way do we have to explain to our players the trajectory of Milan. It is always a good time to play Milan – whether before a Clasico game against Real Madrid or not.

“It’s another opportunity to play against a great side. If you were to ask Carles Puyol, he will tell you that this is the best team that we can play.”

Barcelona have a 100 per cent record in Group H, while Milan have beaten Celtic and drawn with Ajax in their two games so far.
