If you are a fan of what Barcelona do these days, i.e., utterly dominating the opposition, revolutionising tactics, feeding the Spanish national team to glory, nurturing the youth, bolstering from within, and constructing a team rather than buying one , then you have to appreciate what Milan have done in the years past, as before the Catalans, it was exactly what Milan offered.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
The game bring together two of the biggest names in club football. While Barcelona are going through probably the greatest phase in their illustrious history, AC Milan are in a phase of transition, where they are trying find a new identity for themselves. The game also brings a sense of “deja vu”, as for the second straight year, the path of these two teams in the tournament comes at crossroads.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
Barcelona, like in all their games these days, go in as favourites, while finding a reason for Milan to be able to beat all the odds and win the two-legged encounter seems like finding a needle in a haystack. A team that comprises of the leftovers after the fire-sale in the summer at Milan that saw the likes of Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Antonio Cassano leave, coupled with a manager who can hardly be considered a tactical mastermind in Massimiliano Allegri, gives very little chance to be optimistic about the Rossoneri. When the opponent you are up against is Barcelona, the flicker of light in the hearts of all Milan burns with a dimmer flame.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
Milan, who last conquered Europe in 2007, held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp in their first leg of their quarter-final tie last season in the same competition. But the team that takes to the field tonight has been drained of talent through the years, and a draw at home shouldn’t be enough to help them get past their mighty opponents.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
If Milan hope to get anything positive out of this tie, the team in transition will have to perform like the well-oiled machine that Allegri may have envisioned for the future. The likes of Montolivo and Ambrosini will have to play out of their skins.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
Barcelona’s frailties at the back should give Milanistis reason for hope, as the the Catalan team has failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last nine games.
The Catalan giants, on the other hand, will try and provide a re-incarnation of the game yesterday between Arsenal and Bayern Munich, where a superior footballing team was the main reason for the result, rather than the home advantage and overflowing emotions.
Barcelona have more than adequate firepower to not only win, but to totally dominate the game in both legs of the competition, and with the season that they are having, it’s hard to put your money against it.AC Milan vs Barcelona live.watch AC Milan vs Barcelona live streaming.
