AC Milan vice-president: We will beat Bayern Munich

Galliani told Sky Italia after Saturday night’s win over Empoli: “I am sure we can qualify as we are stronger than Bayern.

“The result of the first leg doesn’t correspond to what really happened on the pitch. They scored in injury time and Alberto Gilardino’s goal shouldn’t have been disallowed.

“He also didn’t deserve to be booked and could have been available for the next game. In any case, we have been playing very well lately – only Inter are doing better than us.

“Am I afraid about the referee? All Champions League matches are generally well handled, although mistakes can be made.”
