- Barcelona won during the group stage game. No complain.
- Barcelona didn't win last night. A lot of complains.

Is there any correlation between the result and the complains ? Angel

Bonera slipped once and Messi could have been in on goal btu crossed it to no one (early in 1st Half) so it's same for both, I don't think our Squad liked it very much either as we were slipping all over the place. For God Sakes, Mesbah is on the floor more than standing Grinser044

Abbiati was incredibly stupid to do that as Sanchez has no chance at the ball. He kicked it virtually out for a goal kick, and I think the Ref behind the Goal line knew this and didn't want to award a PK since there was NO chance to get near the ball. If the PK was given, I wouldn't have been in disagreement either.

Basically it leaves the tie in the balance, but all the pressure is now on Barca to play a great game at home to win. However, they will always be in the knowledge that any goals conceded leaves them in a nightmare position.

As for this match, we have much to take away from the game, as we played on par with Barca, even if the stats don't completely suggest that.

In the World, the point of Football is to score more Goals. In Italy, it is to prevent the other team from scoring Angel

I thought we played them very closely. The end of the 1st half showed Barca pressuring us a lot with possession but also rather predictable play. Our positioning was near perfection. I thought we attacked well (always with 3 or 4 players), using high balls, long balls, and pace. There were a lot of missed chances we already discussed, and also Xavi has an open goal he missed as well.

Let's see who we'll have back for Camp Nou, and as long as Mesbah's off the field, we may be able to do it.
