AC Milan Vs. Arsenal, 2012 Champions League: Ibrahimovic Wins, Converts Penalty

And somehow this match has turned into even more of a disaster for Arsenal. AC Milan break, and eventually Robinho finds Zlatan Ibrahimović on the left. He saunters into the penalty area, dances past Johan Djourou, and is then brought down by the Swiss international, who basically wrestles him to the ground to pick up a yellow card and concede a clear penalty.

Ibrahimović steps up to take the spot kick, and despite the fact that Wojciech Szczesny guesses the right way and gets a hand to the ball, the ball's struck too well and it goes straight in at the right corner anyway. So that's 4-0 and Milan have been full value for their money despite cruising thought most of the second half. If there's any bad news, it's that Massimo Ambrosini won't be able to participate in the second leg after picking up a yellow card ... but with a four-goal lead, it seems unlikely that he'll care.
