Former AC Milan attacker Marco Simone, who featured for the Rossoneri from 1989 to 1997, believes that Barcelona should be worried ahead of their clash with the Rossoneri at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Milan recorded a scoreless draw in the first leg of their quarter-final against Barcelona, and Simone, currently head coach at Monaco, has given the Italians a 50 per cent chance of eliminating the Champions League holders and going on to claim the trophy themselves this term.

"Milan have 50 per cent chance to win the second leg against Barcelona in my opinion. And I would say that they have a 50% chance to win the Champions League, even if the biggest teams are still there," Simone said to

"Barcelona play better than Milan at the moment, but the Italian side are without a doubt the biggest team in the world.

"I think that Barcelona have reasons to be worried after the first leg. It won't be an easy game for them at Camp Nou."

Tuesday's match in Catalunya kicks off at 20.45CET.
