Allegri thinks Milan couldâ€™ve won against Barcelona had they been sharper on the counter-attack after their amazing start.
â€śThe team did very well at the start, then we got a bit too deep, mainly because of Barcelonaâ€™s pressure. We couldâ€™ve done better with some counters and keeping possession, but it wasnâ€™t easy,â€ť he said after the 2-2 draw.
â€śI donâ€™t think we allowed Barca many chances and couldâ€™ve gone 2-0 up straight after the opener.â€ť
Alexandre Pato scored after 24 seconds, making it the fifth fastest goal in Champions League history.
However, Barcelona fought back to lead 2-1 and had 70 per cent of the possession before Thiago Silvaâ€™s last-gasp header from a corner.
â€śThe lads did well not to lose their heads after going behind and were rewarded for all the hard work and sacrifice they did over the 95 minutes,â€ť continued Allegri.
â€śI didnâ€™t expect this, as itâ€™s not easy to come here and score twice. We all realised it was difficult and held firm, as Barcelona are capable of scoring three goals in five minutes.â€ť
