The Morocco international insists his side deserved to win the first leg and remains confident they can reach the Champions League quarter-finals
Adel Taarabt has insisted that AC Milan do not fear Atletico Madrid ahead of the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in Spain on Tuesday.
The Serie A outfit have it all to do at the Vicente Calderon after Diego Costa's late strike at San Siro gave Atletico a crucial advantage heading into the return leg, but Taarabt can see no reason why Milan cannot go and produce the result they need to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.
"We should have won at San Siro. It could have been 2-0 in our favour, but we were unlucky," he told the club's official television channel.
"On Tuesday we've got no fear about taking on Atletico Madrid.
"They're a strong side and they're second in the Spanish league, but the Champions League is a different competition.
"At San Siro we showed that we can dominate, I see no reason why we can't do the same over there in Madrid."
