Balotelli disappointed AC Milan only Italian team left in Champions League
"After the dismissal we had to play on the defensive. I would've liked to score, but the important thing was not to concede," said the striker.
"Other Italian teams could've joined us in the knockouts and I'm disappointed they didn't, but at the same time I am happy for Milan.
"Do I have any preferences for the next round? None, as either way we'll be facing one of the group winners."
