Gabi: No favourite between Milan, Atletico

19 February 2014 11:00

Atletico Madrid captain Gabi believes that Wednesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Milan is too close to call.

The sides will meet at San Siro in the last 16 of the competition as Diego Simeone's men seek to continue their unbeaten run in Europe this season.

However, they face a Milan side who have found fresh impetus under new coach Clarence Seedorf and Gabi feels that reputation and past form will count for little on Wednesday.

"Right now, at this stage of the Champions League, the favourites are decided on the field," he said.

"We respect Milan, a team with great players. We are thrilled to play this game at this stage."

While Milan sit ninth in Serie A after an inconsistent campaign to date, Atletico remain firmly in the hunt for the Liga title - sitting third, level on points with Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Despite suffering three defeats in a row in all competitions earlier this month, Gabi is confident that Atletico are on course for a successful season and called for his team-mates to gain a positive first-leg result.

"We have won the right to play this game and come to play with high hopes, looking for a good result, making a great game and following the line we are on," he continued.

"We want to do our work as we (did) before and get a good result for the return at the Vicente Calderon."
