The Rossoneri tried last night to show that in the Champions League they are a different team, and succeeded to some extent. The only problem was that they failed to score against Thibaut Courtois, who has been in excellent form in the game from yesterday.

Finally Atletico managed to open the score when there were seven minutes to go, by Diego Costa, making the task of the Milanese Devils even harder in the return leg at Vicente Calderon.

However, Adel Taarabt believes in his team’s chances to qualify for the quarter finals of the Champions League.

“Is it finished? No, I don’t think so,” Taarabt told Sky Sport Italia after the game. “We put in a great performance, tactically almost perfect, and we were just unlucky on the incidents.”

“In the second half we ran out of energy a little bit and should have scored a goal. Now we know it is going to be very difficult [at Vicente Calderon], but we are going there to score.” added Milan midfierlder.

The return leg between the two teams will take place on March 11 at Vicente Calderon, and the form in which the two teams are presently makes us believe that it will be difficult for Clarence Seedorf’s team to turn the fate of qualification after the Rossoneri lost 0-1 at home.
