AC Milan Vs Barcelona Highlights: The Italians hosted what many consider to be ‘’the best team in the world’’ Barcelona at San Siro in order to play the 1rst leg of their Champions League campaign and shocked the world when they managed to overcome them 2-0.
The 4 times Ballon D’Or winner Lionel Messi did not have his best of days as he was almost absent throughout the entire match despite concluding the encounter with a 66% possession they struggled on creating any real goal-scoring chance meanwhile AC.Milan were fast on the counter-attack and troubled the opposition on a number of occasions.
Barcelona pressured the opposition for most of the game but Massimiliano Allegri’s team held their own ground and denied everything that was launched at them for the entire 1rst half.
Restart of the game arrived and the Italian team took the lead in a very controversial manner. Montolivo whipped in a free-kick which appeared to have deflected off the hand of Zapata before Boateng unleashing a strike that found the back of the net of Victor Valdes.
Even with the protests from the Barcelona players, the goal was still allowed and the match continued rolling on.
AC.Milan got even further ahead on the scoreboard when Shaarawy was found inside the box of Barcelona and chipped the ball over to the left flank where Muntari turned the score 2-0 with a superb volley.
With this result Barcelona will need to score 2 goals in their 2nd leg which will be held in their home turf Camp Nou in 3 weeks from now. However things will turn ugly for the Spanish side if AC Milan score in Camp Nou.
