AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says they're primed for their Champions League clash with Barcelona.

The teams meet on Wednesday for the first-leg of their quarterfinal tie.

"We are ready for Barcelona," he told Aftonbladet. "If we want to win international trophies then we have to start winning these types of games."

Barcelona's biggest goal threat is Lionel Messi, but Ibra, given his past as a player at the Nou Camp, respects the European champions as a unit.

"We have to stop Barcelona, not Messi, in the same way that Barca will have to stop Milan."
