nevertheless the Ref was really poor and obviously he favoured Barca... key incidents were rough tackles from Puyol and Keita, and Mascherano latterly playing WWE with Ibra and not awarding Antonini atleast a free kick when he was being kicked by 11 Barca players... not to mention awarding a free kick whenever barca players raised their hands!!
btw, Barca players only proved Ibra correct when he called them "school boys" by whining whenever one of their players fell..
besides this I have nothing to add as all has been said
So 2 stonewall penalties that the ref didn't give Barca but he apparently favoured them in all the big decisions beacause of meaningless challenges nera the halfway line!? Would you like some salt'n'vinegar to go on that chip on your shoulder?
Good game and Milan defended well. Problem is that Barca could have and probably should have scored. Milan created good chances and will need to be clinical in the Camp Nou. To be as defensive as Milan were and beat Barca is rare. Inter managed it 2010 but carried a huge slice of luck to do so. The return leg should be facinating.
