ROME - Playmaker Kaka believes AC Milan are on course to reach the Champions League final despite losing 3-2 to Manchester United in the first leg of their semifinal.

The Brazilian international scored twice at Old Trafford to give Milan a 2-1 interval lead but the Premier League leaders fought back with two second half goals by Wayne Rooney, the second in stoppage time.

"It's a very bitter result that gives us little margin for error but I'm convinced Milan can go through," Kaka told yesterday's La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We were stupid. We played a great first half and their second goal was fine but then we missed several opportunities to make it 3-1," he said. - Reuters
