Spanish Giants Barcelona (Catalans) was stunned last Wednesday by AC Milan (Rossoneri) in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 match-up. AC Milan pulled off arguably the biggest upset in Champions League play to-date. The Italian Club defeated the highly-favored Barcelona FC in a stunning 2-0 defeat at San Siro Stadium in Italy.
Barcelona was initially favored to win the UEFA tournament given their dominance in European football. Prior to last Wednesday’s shocker, few doubted they would win the whole thing considering their roster is filled with a star-studded cast include the reigning FIFA world footballer of the year Lionel Messi, as well as the likes of Cristan Tello, David Villa; not to mention a sold midfield. (However, it is noteworthy; Barca’s midfield was totally out played by Milan's “not-to-shabby” midfield which included Massimo Ambrosini, Sulley Muntari and Riccardo Montolivo last week at San Siro). Despite the fact, Barcelona had possession of the ball for most of the game, they still lost in a stunning defeat by the Rossoneri.
