AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits his heart skipped a beat when Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor headed against the crossbar at the end of last night's 0-0 draw at Emirates stadium.

Galliani said: "We were not as dangerous as I would've liked upfront. Pato moved well, but that's the way the game went and I thought Adebayor's header that hit the bar was actually beyond the end of stoppages, so it really would've been painful to concede then. I thought it was in and haven't recovered from that fright yet!

"We came here 13 years ago at Highbury and drew 0-0 the first leg before winning 2-0 in the second, so we hope it is a good omen."
