Kaká insists that AC Milan can win in Madrid
The Brazilian found Wednesday's defeat hard to take but remains confident that his side can beat Atletico Madrid in the return leg.
Kaká was a lively figure in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg at the San Siro as the Rossoneri created a number of chances to go ahead before being punished for their profligacy in front of goal by Diego Costa’s late header.
"Of course we were left with a bitter taste in our mouths, because we gave a very good performance, with the right spirit. Unfortunately, we did not manage to score," Kaká told reporters after the game.
"We created a lot of chances so we are disappointed, but also confident we can still secure qualification in Madrid."
"In my opinion, the qualification is still open, even if I admit it will be very difficult."
"We must win in Madrid, against a great team like Atletico, but looking at our display tonight I think we have a good chance of doing it."
Clarence Seedorf’s side will travel to Madrid’s Vicente Calderon stadium for the second-leg on March 12.
