AC Milan 2- Barcelona 0: Italian complicate the pass to the quarterfinals
Barcelona lost 2-0 during his visit to the AC Milan field in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. A result that leaves the Blaugrana on the ropes. There was a lot of talk in the previous hours about how the Italians should stop Lionel Messi. All kinds of proposals were heard: from using a weapon, until he was locked in a cage. The truth was that, away from any strange methods, Milan played a perfect defensive game that managed to cloud the Catalan power.
With that defense as a flag and with daring when attacking, The Rossoneri made Barca an unknown team. But the way opened with a controversial move…
To the 11 minutes of the first half, Boateng took advantage of the rebound off the hand of a teammate, that the referee did not warn, and opened the scoring with a precise definition. Then, to the 80, Muntari scored a great goal to seal the 2-0 final and thus fill with tranquility the whole rossoneri people.
With this result, The Catalans are obliged to win by two goals in the second leg, to force extra time and penalties. If they receive an away goal, They must beat the Italians by three.
