Piss poor match. 2nd leg should be interesting, Milan drew 2-2 in the Nou Camp earlier this season. No reason why they couldn't do it again.
Agrees that Milan can actually get a result. Ultra defensive displays in the past have caused Barcelona to make a mistake or one chance and they can be beaten.
Barcelona's sublime attacking is well documented, but they have been frustrated before and sometimes they never seem to have the urgency to attack in a situation that requires it. Patience and keeping the ball is ok when you have time, but sometimes you don't and even Barcelona need to be urgent too when the situation calls for it.
Milan did look like they could create something and score although it was not pretty. There was a whole bunch of hoofing it up front and see what happens. It was reasonably effective though with the height of Ibrahimovich against shorty Mascherano. Too much of the time they just had very poor first touches which cost them a chance on goal.
Barcelona are clear favourites but AC Milan will be quite happy to sit back and defend all game again looking to snatch a goal, take a score draw or even go to penalties.
If Milan can ride their luck a little they can snatch a goal, and hold onto it or at least a draw to take them through. We have seen Inter do this before successfully. Smart money is always on Barca however...
Decent match, I love a great defensive display- great seeing Milan players celebrate after heroic blocks! They really should have scored though, those missed chances could be crucial but like asmith said, only a draw is needed to advance and they've already had the 2-2 so it's gonna be interesting
Agree,a great defensive display from Milan that leads to an intriguing second-leg match at the Camp Nou.
Ibra should have scored in the first half when he was facing Valdes from close-range.Maybe he is keeping his goals for the Camp Nou?;)
lol farca are b*tching over the pitch
well it was pretty horrible... i lost my count on how many slips the players had :S
why do you people disagree with a fact? just look at it
Love how nobody mentions the penalty on Sanchez, that would've crushed Milan's tight defense and put them out of focus, and the ref was right there too. Fair result my ass.
A barca fan complaining about not getting a ref's decision. lmao I LOVE IT!
haha your comment just literally made me lol
Fuck all barca haters
A Real Madrid fan taking a shot at Barca, ironic when your favorite team hasn't had a single victory on us since...a long time, just like Milan. Every team has had these types of ref decisions, don't know what you're on about, but since you're a Real Madrid fan, I would say excuses...
Wow, what a crybaby. lol. Don't take it to heart it's not THAT serious. Everyone takes shots at the teacher's (UEFA) pet. =)
Misinformation is always serious, although I'm not crying lol. I don't see how we are "teacher's pet" we just came from a game that a penalty was not called for us. I know UEFA gets shady sometimes but it'll take more than one match to convince me.
Once again Irba can't produce during big matches in Europe. Snooze fest. Really hope both clubs step it up in the 2nd leg.
Barca players like to dive alot.
you know, it's their stuff
Barca players? Which? Busquets yes, Villa sometimes(injured anyway), Alves..yes, other than that I have never seen Sanchez or Messi dive, both get tackled like crazy before they fall. Once again, more excuses..
yep, this "barca diving blablabla" is getting ridiculous! is anyone even watching the games or will they come here just to write these diving comments.. there wasnt much diving in the milan match and the worst one was by milan player so cmon u stupid people stop it already..
i dont know people say it was a boring match. this is one of the most entertaining 0 0 matches i have seen in quite some time
