Messi and Barca crush Milan

13Mar

Messi scored two stunning goals

 

 

Lionel Messi proved again why he is the best player in the world, with two stunning strikes inspiring Barca to a 4-0 demolition of AC Milan in the Champions League second leg tie.

 

 

Milan held a 2-0 lead from the first leg at the San Siro, however they just didn’t turn up at the Nou Camp. They attempted to hit Barca on the counter, but Barca came all guns blazing with a point to prove after some dissapointing results recently.

 

 

Early on El-Sharaawy had some tame efforts on goal, but it was Leo Messi with a left footer curler that whizzed past Abbiati in the Milan goal to make it 1-0. Young striker Niang was also clean through one on one later in the first half, however his effort hit the post. If that had gone in, it would have been an even greater advantage to Milan with a priceless away goal. But it was Messi again who shot low and hard into the Milan goal from outside the area to make it 2-0 Barca at half time and level on aggregate.

 

 

Milan had no real plan B, but a goal at any time would change things, but before they could even think about attacking, David Villa turned Milan left back Constant in the area with ease and slotted the ball into the top left hand corner with a sweet left footed striker. 3-0 now, the tie had officially turned.

 

 

Milan were without the injured in-form striker Pazzini on the night, so had to try and get a goal from somewhere, and manager Allegri brought on Muntari, Robinho and even Barca loanee Bojan. However it just never looked like it was going to happen. Barca were too strong, and in injury time left back Jordi Alba scored a wonderfully worked counter to make it 4-0 and curtains for Milan. Barca are the first team in Champions League history to overturn a 2-0 first leg defeat and qualify.
