Barca Thrash AC Milan in first leg!
Yesterday Barcelona took on A.C. Milan. Both teams looking to grap the crucial
3 points and superior goal difference. The starting line up was a very strong team for both sides and Xavi was a majout doubt for this match but passed a Late fitness test. As the match started, Barcelona started very brightly and was looking to strike sooner or later! But the first goal came in a shock attack as Pato scored for A.C. Milan! They caught Barcelona on the counter attack from a corner at the other end and Pato's finish was absoulutly delightful! And as you would just be amazed at A.C. Milans goal, straight from kick off Eto'o ripped the opposition teams defence and carmply placed it past the keeper! so the score was 1-1 after 16 mins. The second goal was just tipical Barca passing, moving, finding space, and bang a goal before your eyes from Thierry Henry. Then the game was getting away from A.C. Milan as Barca got a 3rd just 6 miniutes after they got there 2nd from a corner by Xavi and a sensational bycicle kick by Lionel Messi. The game was fully dominated by Barca as the 4th came in the 43rd minute from a curving Xavi free kick which just showed how great Barcelona are, and that was half time. The second half saw something bright for A.C. Milan when they dropped it down to 4-2, beautiful passing set Pato up and he chipped Valdes wonderfully. But Barca hit back straight away in the 67th minute from Thierry Henry near post and a goal not surprising by the way they played. Barca kept pressing for their 6th goal and got it when Messi was foulded in the Box and he took the Penalty top left corner. 6-2 to Barca great performance by the whole team, but A.C. Milan will be very very dissapointed with the performance they gave from a very stromg team. Man of the Match was Lionel Messi.
