AC Milan vs FC Barcelona: Uefa Champions League Last 16 Preview

19 Feb

Milan against Barça in the Champions League. With a total of eleven titles of Europe’s top trophy between them there can be few contests on the world stage that equal the historic rivalry of these two great clubs. Fabio Capello’s Milan famously defeated Johan Cruyff’s dream team 4-0 in the 1994 final and since then the sides have faced each other on no fewer than ten occasions with a balance of four wins for Barça and two for Milan and four draws.Last season the teams met both in the group stage and again in quarter-finals. The first group stage match ended in a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou after Thiago Silva headed in a last minute equalizer for Milan and this was followed by Barça’s impressive 2-3 victory in the San Siro with Pep Guardiola bravely opting for a defence of three. The first leg of the quarter finals ended in an intense 0-0 draw in Italy and then Barça won the return 3-1 with two goals from Leo Messi and a third from Andrés Iniesta.
