"It will be a tough game as they are a strong side, but we know that we can do it.
"For me, this game has the same importance as a Champions League semi-final and to play such a game at a stadium like the San Siro will be a moving experience."
Buffon also said: "Milan haven't won at home this year and I know that they have a great desire to make up for the dark nights, but we don't want to be sacrificial lambs.
"They are European champions and they could soon occupy the world throne, so it's obvious that this will be a difficult game.
"We have great faith in our own abilities as long as we continue to work with the same humility and spirit of sacrifice that has been at the heart of the campaign so far."
