Barcelona vs AC Milan on Tuesday, March 12th

Barcelona will host AC Milan on Tuesday, March 12th at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final. Barcelona lost the first leg with 2:0 and needs a great victory to reach the Champions League semi-final.

Barcelona’s pride is hurt after the 2:0 defeat against AC Milan in the first leg and the two defeats against Real Madrid in recent weeks. Barcelona needs to attack and score 2 goals to qualify for the next round. However, Barcelona will host AC Milan at the Camp Nou and proved many times how dominant the Barca game is on home turf.

Jordi Roura and Tito Vilanova side will be motivated to make up for the unexpected loss in the first leg and is well prepared. Barcelona beat Deportivo La Coruna on the weekend with 2:0 after goals from Alexis and Messi. Xavi knows how to approach the game and said: “We need to be careful, we can’t lose possession, we need to avoid giving them any opportunities to counterattack, we can’t commit stupid fouls, our attacks need to have purpose, we have to open up the pitch.”

AC Milan, on the other side, knows that one away goal can be crucial. Milan had great results in recent weeks and drew against Inter (1:1) and beating Lazio (3:0) and Gènova (0:2) to move up into third place in the Serie A. However, Friday’s win against Genova could prove to be expensive for Milan as top scorer Pazzini got injured and will miss the trip to the Camp Nou. Mexes is also in doubt for the match against Barcelona.

Football fans should be exited about the meeting of those two football giants. It guarantees quality football, emotions and many goals.
