Man Utd No1 Van der Sar: Time to finish off AC Milan
The Italians have been a bogey team for the Reds in the European Cup. In four previous two-legged ties, the Rossoneri have always come out on top.
Van der Sar was in goal for one of those defeats, back in 2007, when after a 3-2 first leg win at Old Trafford the Reds lost 3-0 at the San Siro to exit the competition at the semi-final stage.
“It’s not a case of owing Milan one, but we will want to make sure we don’t make the same mistakes we did a few years ago when they knocked us out at the semi-final stage,” he told ManUtd.com.
“They played particularly well in the home leg here when we won 3-2 and Kaka scored two goals. Then at the San Siro, Clarence Seedorf was fantastic – he was excellent in both games actually. But we got a good result in Milan and now we need to finish it off with a magic night at Old Trafford.
“We’re always confident,” he added. “And I haven’t played a lot in the Champions League yet this season, so I’ve been really looking forward to these games.”
