Roura refuses to accept Barcelona favourites tag

Barcelona coach Jordi Roura denies they're overwhelming favourites for tonight's Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Roura will be on the bench at San Siro tonight in the absence of Tito Vilanova.

"Are Barcelona favourites? You know the way I see it," he grimaced.

"Milan are a great team and it is not easy to play against them. The qualification will be decided in Barcelona. You cannot talk about favourites in a tie like this.

"In recent games we have been conceding goals, but fortunately we always scored a few more. We have tried to resolve certain situations in defence, as you can't always fight back to win.

"Everyone wants to get through to the quarter-finals, but we know it won't be easy. The Champions League is missed by Barcelona and the players are happier when they can face big clubs."
