Beautiful performance by Barcelona, 4-0 and no goals conceded to Milan. Got to say, we got lucky with Niang's miss but if you look at the team's that have the heart to win it in times like these, most of them have a little luck in there somewhere. Haven't seen Barca play like this in a while, complete night and day difference, oh and what is it, first team to win it after losing 2-0 away?? Awesome!
Congrats. Barcelona played a good match today Milan defense was terrible
that 2-0 win was for nothing! they got lucky with the 2 goals at home and what made them think they can go head on offensive against Barca at Camp Nou?
Nes, barca played like champions on the night. no doubt about it. messi is just class. totally unstoppable. glad he got out of that dip he was in. the difference i noticed was barca not playing 100 passes on the halfway line. they had a much more direct approach and for once they actually attacked down the wings and floated balls in. but you could see thats not their style, they barely won any headers in the box. i dont know about that stat though. theres the 2011/2012 round of 16 SSC Napoli 3-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea FC 4-1 SSC Napoli (aet) 1999/2000 quarter finals Chelsea FC 3-1 FC Barcelona FC Barcelona 5-1 Chelsea FC (aet) 2003/04 quarter-finals Real Madrid CF 4-2 AS Monaco FC AS Monaco FC 3-1 Real Madrid CF 2003/04 quarter-finals AC Milan 4-1 RC Deportivo La Coruña RC Deportivo La Coruña 4-0 AC Milan but yeah, not taking anything away from barca. great match. im just hoping they don't win the UCL :P lol
Crossing doesn't ever seem to be their forte, especially when it's done against them, but I liked seeing a Barca that was more direct with their passing, faster, and more creative in attack. Milan's midfield struggled a lot as well. As for the stat, I think the analysts were talking about losing 2-0 away as in not scoring any goals away, but regardless I'm just happy they got the result, now hopefully we don't cross paths with Bayern, lol.
Niang hitting the post was the deciding factor for me. If he scored it would of been over. I'm sure Nes_Daze would agree to that too. AC gave Barca way too much respect in the whole game. They were wasteful throughout and Barca just played to their strengths. Congrats.
I don't understand why muntari wasn't playing in first !! Milan should of play like the last minute from the begining (attackin and pressure) , plus the first goal of messi at the fifth minute gave barcelona a big confidence and it was a shock for milan. And of course if niang scored when he could , the game would for sure be over
Wow. Way to get smashed Milan. I'll have to go back and watch the highlights after work. Wow, really didn't see this coming after the first leg.
Milan played like sh*t. Cant believe they conceded 4 goals... that miss ufffff.
i had just reached home after a long days work. the game started around 1:15 am [where i stay] i didn't have that particular channel... i watched it online with some foreign commentary.... but WHAT A FREAKING MATCH!!! what's this Barca team i've never seen???? like wow!
Great match. One observation stuck out like a sore thumb however: Alexis Sanchez gets whistled for offside, rounds the keeper, kicks the ball in the net, claims to have not heard the whistle, doesn't even get carded. Robin Van Persie gets whistled for offside, takes shot at goal, claims to have not heard said whistle, gets second yellow and sending off. Just an observation...
you noticed that too. but i don't think it has anything to do with the players. more so with the refs. like the world cup final de jong sees alonso coming. Alonso gets kicks intentionally in the chest, yellow card. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Nani mistakenly makes contact with the player after keeping his eye on the ball all the time, Straight red card. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So much for Barcelona being in a crisis! Messi's first goal was unreal. Blasted it in the top corner with little or no back lift when he took the shot.
