Andriy Shevchenko says that AC Milan have "a good chance" of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.

Andriy Shevchenko has backed his former club AC Milan to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Barcelona.

The two sides will clash at Camp Nou in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday.

"Every player possesses a degree of fear when they play at a stadium such as Camp Nou," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "However, especially if you are young, you gain a great deal of confidence from these games and they help you grow as long as you are talented enough.

"Milan have to play as if the game is still 0-0 with midfielders and forward willing to sacrifice themselves for the team. I'm sure [coach] Massimiliano Allegri has already spoken to the players about this. Milan have a good chance of getting through."

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