Milan overcame Arsenal in the last-16 of the Champions League after defeating the Gunners 4-3 on aggregate to set up a quarter-final meeting with European champions Barca.

The Serie A holders host Barca in the first leg of their tie on Wednesday but Wenger feels they stand little chance of going all the way and claiming glory at the Allianz Arena in May.

"Barcelona are the super favourites for the trophy," Wenger told the Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday. "Milan have no chance of winning the Champions League.

"Milan play well as a team and they can count on a great player like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but I don't think that they are at the level required. They have some weak points."
