Adriano Galliani warns AC Milan against the threat posed by Barcelona forward Lionel Messi during their Champions League tie on Tuesday.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has described Lionel Messi as a "monster" ahead of his side's clash with Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Galliani believes that for the Rossoneri to win the second leg of their last-16 tie at Camp Nou, the Argentine forward will need to "take a break".

"Messi is a monster, he scores with amazing continuity," he told reporters. "Hopefully tomorrow he will take a break. We are facing the best team in the world.

"I expect a very warm atmosphere, with 100,000 people at Camp Nou. It will be difficult, because we are up against the best in the world."

Milan won the first leg 2-0 at the San Siro last month.
