The only reason Arsenal came close in the second game was because AC underestimated your Arsenal.
Any fool should understand that.
The pitch was not the best, I grant you that, but both teams were at disadvantage.[/quote] They underestimated Arsenal ? I think not, that;s why they ploughed them flanks and took away the ability to use Walcott and OX. That;s why Ibrahimovich played from the mid field and not up front. That's why Emmanuelson looked like a a world class defensive mid at San Siro and looked like a world class donkey at the emirates. Make no mistake that AC milan don;t have one defender who can withstand ARsenal's wing play and AC knew that.
So to say both teams were at a disadvantage is ignoring those facts. Why would AC milan not do everything in their power in order to play at their best at their home stadium. That is insane talk. I think you underestimate how far desperate teams will go and i think AC banks upon Wenger's naivety in being honest.[/quote]

AC played the worst first half of football seen in ages.
If Arsene did not feel the pitch was to his liking, he should have complained, refused to play & not snivel after the game.

Team news

Thiago Silva will be absent for AC tonight.
Right back Abate is also out along with Pato.
Van Bommel is suspended.

Some good news for Milan is that Kevin Prince Boateng should be back.

For Barcelona David Villa is still sidelined along with defender Adriano.

Did you know that AC Milan have won only four of their last 15 Champions League games? :oops:

AC won only four out of the last 15 ?
I wonder whom did they beat, then ?

Well, to the game.
On paper, it should be one sided affair for Barca, but AC is a team that may surprise us all.
At least, tonight, I feel. Hopefully, their pitch is well manicured for approval of Arsenal fans.
Personally, I am going to root for AC.
