AC Milan Vs. Arsenal, 2012 Champions League: 2nd Half Underway With Robinho Goal

We're back off and running in the second half here at the San Siro, where so far AC Milan have been absolutely stomping on poor Arsenal. Kevin-Prince Boateng opened the scoring fifteen minutes in and Robinho made things worse twenty minutes later with a goal that could easily have ended this whole tie as a contest. Hopefully Arsene Wenger's had some words in the changing room, because they're going to need to do much better in the next 45 minutes in order to have the return leg in London maintain any semblance of meaningfulness.

Arsenal's solution? Thierry Henry. Alright then. The Gunners have gone to a 4-4-2, but once again it's Milan doing all of the attacking so far in the second half, with Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic still asking some very difficult questions of the Arsenal defence... and yeah, there's a goal.

It's unfortunate for the Gunners this time - there's an appalling giveaway in midfield to launch a Milan attack. Eventually, Ibrahimovic plays a defendable ball across the face of the box, Thomas Vermaelen slips over, and Robinho can lash home from 18 yards. It's a tidy finish into the bottom corner, but if Vermaelen had remained on his feet, that would never have happened. 3-0 to the hosts.
