With most fans keeping an eye on Lionel Messi, it will be Zlatan Ibrahimovic that is out to prove something when AC Milan hosts Barcelona on Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ibrahimovic spent an unhappy season at Barcelona before heading to Milan. But on Saturday, he scored his 29th goal of the season in Milan's 2-1 win over Roma.

Milan vice president Adriano Galliani says "we have had so many champions, this one seems to me to be one of the best."

In the Champions League, Ibrahimovic has scored five goals in six games. Messi, however, scored that amount of goals in his last Champions League game, a 7-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
