AC Milan 2-0 Barcelona – Champions League – 20th February 2013
Two ex-Portsmouth stars netted the goals which produced a rather surprising result at the San Siro on Wednesday night, with Milan shooting down the mighty Barcelona.
With Mario Balotelli cup-tied, the Rossoneri started with Giampaolo Pazzini up front, supported by Stephan El Shaarawy.
The visitors struggled to produce too many clear-cut chances as the home side defended with discipline and eventually opened the scoring themselves just before the hour-mark, courtesy of Ghana international and former Pompey midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng. Then, with just nine minutes left, another former Fratton Park mdifielder, Sulley Muntari, volleyed home to secure a fantastic 2-0 win for the Italians.
While Milan still face quite a game at the Nou Camp, the victory gives them the edge in this fascinating tie. Messi my arse.
