Decent game so far, Barca mostly in control but are poor at the back and Milan look dangerous whenever they go forward. Hard to call which way it'll go

barca got a penalty robbed.
xavi is lacking in clinical finish, that's why he has probaly never been confered the title upon which messi is currently bearing.
iniesta is falling out of the game, he is obviously out of shape.
alves got struck with the ploughed flank as specnur predicted where he is even stumbling and losing the ball out.
alexis is showing impressive display and hardwork, i like this guy.
defence is faring not bad so far too.

Sometimes it absolutely baffles me what these refs are watching! You got Puyol running into the box for a header with an AC milan holding onto his shirt whit both hands for dear life! It was so obvious it looked like Puyol was towing the bloke!
Penalty without question and the ref was about 15 feet away looking directly at it!

One of the better refereeing by that Swede.
He did not fall for Barca´s diving tricks.

well, it's not the first time barca draws at ac milan, but this time this result suits more the italians, i should say. they were supposed to score at camp nou anyway if they seriously want to go through, and now they are more happy with this outcame than barca, i think.
yet, as i said before, barca without doubts are capable to dipatch half a dozen at home. so it wont be easy to milano.

Result

Wednesday March 28
28 Mar, 19:45 AC Milan 0 - 0 FC Barcelona Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan

Any more comments on tonights result?

It was a good defensive display by AC Milan but Barcelona should have been awarded at least one penalty!

I was quite disappointed with Robinho's performance and it was not surprise really that he was taken off early.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I'll tell you what AC Milan dug up the flanks for the Arsenal game and they dug up the whole pitch for Barca!
Now it could be me or it seemed like the there was no difference in texture between he flanks that was clearly noticeably v Wenger's team and the middle of pitch. That could be down to it being crap all over from the very start players were slipping over at both ends!
How Barca Didn't trounce that defense i do not know regardless of the state of that pitch , because they have a control and technique that no other teams has . They were at least good for 2 in the first half ,but like Arsenal instead of coming out of the gates full on ,they seemed tentative.
Great result for AC milan ,but they are cheats it's as simple as that!

The pitch was slippery & it is a shame that football is allowed to be played there.
However, once again both teams were disadvantaged. Nevertheless, no one scored last night, but Arsenal received 4 poppers, then.

I thought the game was a bit poor considering the teams involved. Barca weren't firing on all cylinders and Milans game plan to stop much football from happening worked well enough.

This should be routine for Barcelona now, I can't see them scoring fewer goals than AC at home.

Personally, I would not call it " routine " for Barca.
As we know, a goal scored at Nou Camp by AC might be a tremendous boost for their confidence, I feel.
Of course, AC must not lose, which could be an overwhelming task for them.

I thought Robinho should have scored last night. I do not know how old AC players are, but it seems to me, as if the team is at its last breath.

Didnt seem to be any urgency in Barcas play last night which was a shame as every time the pace was quickened Milan gave up chances.
With a proper flat surface to play on next week hopefully we will see a better game, Barca have their work cut out I reckon, if they can get an early goal Milan will have to come out.
