AC Milan goalkeeper Gabriel accepts missing the Champions League campaign this season.

The Brazilian made his debut yesterday in victory over Udinese.

Gabriel cannot play against Barcelona on Tuesday, as he is not in the Champions League squad, so Marco Amelia will start instead.

"When the Champions League list was drawn up, I was not 100 per cent due to a shoulder injury, so the Coach made the right choice. Now I am fit, thank God."
