Alexis Sanchez is gearing himself up for the fight as Barcelona attempt to overhaul AC Milan’s 2-0 lead in the Champions League last-16 tie.

The Blaugrana go into the fixture on the back of a 2-0 La Liga win over Deportivo La Coruna – a game in which Sanchez opened the scoring before Lionel Messi added a late second – but the Chile international acknowledged Tuesday’s clash will be a very different proposition.

“We had to win, it was important,” the former Udinese forward said.

“We also have to win on Tuesday against Milan. Defeats in these matches leave a mark, but on Tuesday there is a battle we must win one way or another.”

Barcelona face a daunting task as they attempt to overcome the San Siro club to continue their pursuit of a fifth European crown, but midfielder Thiago Alcantara insisted the squad is full of belief.

“We’re playing for our lives in the Champions League, the most important title there is,” the 21-year-old told Mundo Deportivo.

“We’ll try to get a good result. Victory helps us boost our morale. We’re optimistic ahead of the match against Milan.”
