AC Milan’s Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is confident that the Rossoneri can beat Barcelona in their UEFA champions League match on Tuesday


Kevin-Prince Boateng has no doubt that AC Milan can overcome defending champions Barcelona in Tuesday’s high-profile European Champions League clash at the Nou Camp.

“If I thought we couldn’t win, then I wouldn’t be playing football. I dreamed of a game like this since I was a kid. Nobody is unbeatable,” The Ghanaian midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We have to stay solid and united, because we’re on their turf and must defend well. In attack we have exceptional strikers and sooner or later we will score. I think it’ll end 1-1.’’

Although World Player of the Year Lionel Messi usually steals the limelight, Boateng believes the key for Milan will be stopping the threat of midfield duo Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

 “If we don’t give Xavi and Andres Iniesta time to think, then it becomes very difficult for them to find the net. Those two are the right and left side of the Barcelona brain. Without the brain, teams cannot play,” Boateng added.
