AC Milan shocks Messi’s Barca
Thu, 21 Feb 2013 10:29a.m.
AC Milan stunned Barcelona 2-0 in the first leg of its Champions League last-16 tie today, beating the Spanish giant for the first time in eight matches.
Kevin-Prince Boateng gave Milan the lead in controversial circumstances in the 57th minute. Cristian Zapata appeared to handle Riccardo Montolivo's assist in the buildup.
Barcelona players protested but to no avail and Gerard Pique was booked in the process.
Sulley Muntari sealed the win nine minutes from time with a well-worked goal.
It was a deserved win for Milan, which contained Barcelona's potent attack impressively, allowing it just two shots on target all match.
The result caps a stunning turnaround of fortunes for Milan. Massimiliano Allegri's side started the season dreadfully and was 15th in the Italian league after eight games. It is now third.
The second leg is at Barcelona’s home ground of Camp Nou.
