Jordi Roura says that Barcelona can still advance into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, despite losing to AC Milan in the first leg of the last 16.

Barcelona assistant manager Jordi Roura has no doubts that his side can progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The La Liga outfit were beaten 2-0 by AC Milan on Wednesday, after goals from Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sully Muntari gave them the win in the first leg of their last-16 clash at the San Siro.

Despite the disadvantage heading into the return leg, Roura is confident that the Catalan club can turn the tie on its head.

"We are confident in our own team and playing at our own stadium," said Roura. "It will be a different story in the second leg. We fully believe we can turn this around.

"This wasn't our best game. Although we had problems I think that the result is excessive.

"They found a couple of opportunities and scored from them which now makes things tricky for us."

The second leg takes place at the Camp Nou in three weeks' time.
