It is a shame that a referee error on a crucial decision went in Barcelona's favour once again. If there is justice decisions may go Chelsea's way in the semi final because of what happened the last time those two sides met at this stage in 2009 to even it all out.

Chelsea's defence is far too wobbly to really get anything against Barcelona, but we'll see. They can certainly score and rattle cages for a while at least.

An article full of "ifs", "would've" etc. Even if the penalty wouldn't have been called, who's to say Milan would've not made yet another dumb foul in the box? Milan's defense, heck any team's defense can only cope with Barca for so long before they break, first leg okay, second leg you have to be prepared to fight fire with fire against Barca.
