AC Milan Vs. Arsenal, 2012 Champions League: Milan Continue To Threaten

AC Milan are threatening to run riot at the San Siro, and Arsenal's defence appears to be completely unable to cope with their hosts' midfield. Antonio Nocerino is left unmarked near the edge of the penalty area and blasts in a shot that doesn't miss by too much, bouncing off a stanchion and hitting the back of the net from the wrong side, which made the home fans rather happy for a little while.

A few minutes later and things nearly go from pad to worse for the Gunners, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic - who's been in an unstoppable mood so far - nearly seizing on a mixup between Thomas Vermaelen and Wojciech Szczesny to get a free run in on goal. The Swede shrugs off Vermaelen to get to the ball, and Arsenal are rather fortunate that referee Viktor Kassai decided that Ibrahimovic had fouled the defender during his run. Laurent Koscielny replies with a header on target from a free kick, but it's easily saved. Still 1-0 to Milan here.
