And we're back for the second half of AC Milan's visit to Barcelona. In the opening minutes of the half, Pato has already had a chance at the Barcelona goal, while at the other end, substitute Cesc Fabregas has had a go on Christian Abiatti's goal.
But then it was David Villa who banged in the go-ahead goal for the home side. He'd already stung the hands of Abbiati, forcing the keeper to concede a corner. The pressure on Milan showed in the reaction of Antonio Cassano, who crashed into the back of David Villa and conceded a free kick -- a dangerously stupid move from the forward. Sure enough, that kick floated over the heads of the Milan wall and curled past Abbiati's outstretched palm. Barcelona 2-1 Milan.
