AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri says that his team deserved last night's victory over Barcelona in the Champions League.

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has insisted that his team deserved to beat Barcelona in the Champions League.

The Rossoneri are in command of the last-16 tie follow's last night's victory over Blaugrana.

Goals from Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari helped them to a 2-0 win at the San Siro.

Allegri believes that Milan got their just rewards for hard work in preventing Barca from applying their attacking gameplan.

"The lads played well in defensive terms and didn't let them near our penalty area," the 45-year-old told Mediaset.

"We knew Barcelona kept possession for about 65% of the time, but we had five or six very favourable situations where we got the final pass wrong.

"[My players] didn't lose heart, even when Barcelona kept possession. My players all deserved this evening, as did the club and the president."

The next leg takes place at the Camp Nou in two weeks.
