AC Mi­lan Mes­simerised in Barcelona

The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Two goals from Lionel Messi led a stun­ning Barcelona fight back as they over­turned a 2-0 first-leg deficit against AC Mi­lan with a 4-0 de­mo­li­tion of the Ital­ians at the Camp Nou on Tues­day night.

In­deed it was a night so per­fect for the Blau­grana, it was al­most as if they had planned it all along.Af­ter de­feat in the San Siro three weeks ago, Xavi Her­nan­dez pointed out that the only thing this gen­er­a­tion of Barca play­ers were lack­ing af­ter three leagues, two Cham­pi­ons Leagues and two Copa del Rey ti­tles over the past four sea­sons was a his­toric Euro­pean come­back.

Messi, as is cus­tom­ary, got the party started with a sump­tu­ous curl­ing shot into the top cor­ner af­ter just five min­utes to break his duck from open play against Ital­ian sides at the 10th time of ask­ing.
