And that mission seems unthinkable at the Camp Nou, even though the pace of the game of the premises is not optimal. The presence of Keita and the absence of Busquets in central shaft braking the movement and most of the moves were dying en el muro rossonero, by a saturated central rail. Only arrivals of Alves and Abidal any Gallop by the opposite band achieved enable Messi on your lashes first, all of them repelled by a very successful Abbiati. Even the stick seemed to show adverse to the Argentine on a throw-in from failure in which drew an endless thread. Both retraction of the Milan ended with the ball in your network, thanks to a fantastic La Pulga slalom between three dnsores, with death about Pedro pass so this pounding. Min 34, momentary normality and injury to Iniesta to dismiss the first part: will be a month of low femoral biceps of the left leg is broken.

But the Italian goalkeeper nothing could make a minute later in the masterful launch of lack of Villa, by the Squadron and gently. That was perhaps the mistake of Barca. The marker smiled and gave some oxygen an armored opponent. Milan, cognizant of how trench wars are won in inferiority, hid as it did in the first half and tried to repel the threatening disorder of Guardiola. Then came Puyol, among so much serenity and with 80% of possession on top, and Busquets regained his site in the center of the field (Keita was the victim).
Meanwhile, Villa gave entrance to Afellay, the only one who had any arrival with danger. Thus arrived at discount, with the match bleeding and with Milan to work. Know the script and background, just missing a corner, a balloon with malicious intent and a powerful shot by Thiago Silva entering from behind. A decent shake for an unexplained NAP. This champion is also confident.
