The Blaugrana were humbled at the San Siro as the Italian side ran out 2-0 winners while they also made Roura's side look second-best in the encounter. This was despite the fact that Barcelona were dominant in terms of possession and were tipped by many as the favourites for the Champions League last-16 first leg tie.
Since then, a number of players, especially captain Carles Puyol, have strongly expressed their disapproval of the showing by the team on Wednesday night. Roura also agrees that Barca were not playing to their best but called for the focus to turn on Saturday's league fixture at Sevilla.
He also dismissed suggestions that Barca are still reeling from their recent loss and backed his players to maintain their winning resolve.
"Saturday's game is important for us to take another big step in the league and get back some good feelings. We have to focus exclusively on the Seville game and nothing else," he told reporters at a press conference on Friday night.
"It's only natural that we were upset [on Wednesday]. It's not a good result and the players know that.
"I'm not surprised that there's been some self-criticism, but the really important thing is how the team react - this team has always known how to bounce back and be brave and I am convinced that they will do so again over the next few games."
Midfielder Cesc Fabregas echoed his coach's sentiments and even made the bold prediction that it would be a worthy wager to bet on Barcelona turning the Milan tie around in the second leg.
"We didn't create chances; they were stronger and more decisive than us. They hurt us on the break," he told Marca.
"The refereeing and the pitch are no excuse - we have to play better. We didn't perform well and that's all there is to it.
"We have to be 100% in the return leg. I've been a member [of the club] for 25 years and I wouldn't usually wager a euro on this sort of result, but with this team I'd bet anything on us turning the tie around.
Barcelona will next face Real Madrid in their upcoming fixture as the two arch-rivals battle it out for a place in the Copa del Rey final on Tuesday night.
