UEFA Champions League: Carlo Ancelotti confident of Barcelona upset

Paris:

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti is relishing the challenge of facing Champions League favourites Barcelona in the quarter-finals and believes his expensively assembled side are capable of producing an upset.

"We have our chances. They are a team that are dangerous and very strong but it is exciting to prepare for this match. There is always a chance and no team is unbeatable," the 53-year-old Italian explained ahead of Sunday's Ligue 1 match at Saint-Etienne.

"On paper, it is normal to say that Barca or Real are the best teams in the world. But football and the beauty of it is that a team with perhaps less quality can still win. Anything can happen," he added.

"This match will not be a problem for motivation. It will be about courage and character."

The first leg is to be played on April 2 at the Parc des Princes with the return leg set for April 10 in Barcelona.
