Leonardo insisted AC Milan were capable of overturning a 3-2 deficit following their first leg defeat to Manchester United.
The Brazilian tactician believes his side deserved at least a draw from the San Siro match after carving out several openings in the first half.
The Rossoneri took their first chance as Ronaldinho scored via a deflection after just three minutes but Leonardo thinks they could have had a couple more.
United weathered the storm to prevail in a five-goal thriller and leave Leonardo's men with an uphill task if they are to progress to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.
"We did not deserve to lose this match," said Leonardo
"But nothing is finished. We have to win 2-0 in England, which is certainly not beyond us.
"When we got into our stride, we dominated United.
"Indeed the first half could have ended 3-0 in our favour."
