'We can still do it', says Milan's Ancelotti

MILAN, April 18 (Reuters) - AC Milan can still make it to the Champions League final despite a 1-0 defeat by Barcelona in their semi-final first leg at the San Siro on Tuesday, coach Carlo Ancelotti said.

Frenchman Ludovic Giuly's strike in the 57th minute, with a clinical conclusion after he latched on to a superb pass from Brazilian Ronaldinho, gave the Spanish side the advantage for next week's second leg at the Nou Camp.

Ancelotti, whose team had been unbeaten at home in 13 European games, said: 'It is not a good result but I think we still have a good chance to win at Barcelona.

'We don't need a miracle but we will need an extraordinary performance to get through,' he added.

'For what we created and for how we played, I think the result was harsh on us. I hope we get repaid in the second leg.

'Barcelona have improved their chances of getting through but this is not a decisive result.

Ancelotti put the blame on his team's inability to put away four good chances they had created.

'We paid for our lack of precision in front of goal with the chances that we made. We did well to create some opportunities but we couldn't put them away,' said Ancelotti.

Milan were without virus-stricken forward Filippo Inzaghi, but Ancelotti refused to criticise his replacement Alberto Gilardino.

'All the players produced a good game, we had some difficulties as you do against a top side but everyone gave their all.'

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard, a former team mate of Ancelotti's at Milan, was upbeat.

'It was a very important result and I want to congratulate all the players. We were playing at a tough venue against a top team and it wasn't easy.

'I said this was an important game to see what we are worth. It was important to get the result and to have a better chance now of getting through,' he said.

'We shouldn't forget that Milan created some chances. At the start we were taken a bit by surprise but even later on they created some difficulties. They played pretty well and created opportunities.'
