Match Report:


Min 11, 1-0 - MEEEEESSIIIIIII GOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!! Messi converted the penalty!!!

Min 32, 1-1 - Milan scored, 1-1, Nocerino. Min 32

Min 41, 2-1 - MESSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII GOOOOOOOOOOL!!!! 2nd PENALTY OF THE NIGHT, Nesta with the STUPID foul on Busquets

HALFTIME, 2-1 - A very competitive match so far, with The Blaugranas trying to break the Italian defense, mainly through the middle. Messi scored twice from the penalty spot, both fouls clear and stupid at the same time. I don't get why Cuenca is playing if nobody passes him the ball... Pep must bring Alexis on. Milan won't give up, this tie isn't over yet. VAMOS, WIN WIN WIN!!!!

Min 52, 3-1 - INIESTAAAAAAAAAZOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! 3-1 YES YES YEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

Min 74, 3-1 - Pique has asked to be subbed, it looks like a hamstring injury... Adriano IN. WE LOVE YOU GERARD, COME BACK SOON!!!!!!!

FULLTIME, 3-1 - Barça have moved one step closer to the Munich Champions League final after knocking The Rossoneri out of the competition. Guardiola's decision to keep attacking with quick combinations through the middle, sometimes even ignoring the wings, has paid off as FCB had 19 shots, 8 of them on target. Haters will talk about 2 doubtful penalties but, to be honest, I couldn't care less: They were both clear fouls. Pique had to be subbed with an unfortunate injury. Milan got frustrated and started kicking our players in the latter stages of the game. As usual, Messi, Iniesta and Xavi turned up to lead our team into our 5th consecutive CL semifinal. THE ROAD TO MUNICH IS BLAUGRANA!!!!!!!!
