Barcelona Vs. AC Milan, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Lionel Messi Seeking Barcelona's Third Goal

AC Milan aren't ready to give up yet, although the visitors are able to do little at this moment but contain the damage. Credit to Alessandro Nestra, though, for denying Lionel Messi a third goal for Barcelona. The veteran defender executed a perfect tackle inside the area to deny Messi, whose frustration showed when he beat his fists against the pitch, knowing he should've had his shot off earlier.

Not such a good try the second time for Nesta, however, when he was forced to pick up a yellow card in order to deny the Argentine. Yet another free kick conceded to Barcelona, although this time, the Milan wall managed to do its job, denying Messi what David Villa had been able to do earlier in the half.
