Milan were beaten 4-0 and went out 4-2 on aggregate.
âTonight Barcelona were extraordinary, especially in the first 30 minutes. Despite all that pressure, they had few real chances.
âIn the first half we had a lot of problems emerging from our half, as they were pressing us and forcing errors,â said Allegri.
âOf course qualification was always going to be a matter of centimetres. We hit the upright with Niang, then conceded with Messi.
âThis defeat is disappointing for the club, the fans and the lads, as they gave their all and hoped to achieve something remarkable. Tonight it was tough against this Barcelona, yet we kept it open to the end and when 3-0 down had some chances that couldâve gone better.
âThis team needs to grow and had five players who were in their first Champions league campaign. It will be useful experience."
