Barcelona Vs. AC Milan, 2012 Champions League: 2nd Half Underway

The second half is underway at the Camp Nou, where Barcelona - via a pair of penalties - are 2-1 up against AC Milan. It'll be rough for Milan to get another goal to win this tie, but they're certainly going for it, starting the second half off with a scything attack which ends when Javier Mascherano chops down Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the box. The Barcelona defender manages to get away with it, however, which is fairly lucky since that was more blatant than Alessandro Nesta's earlier foul against Sergio Busquets, which led to the hosts' second pen.

At the other end of the pitch, Lionel Messi does manage to draw a foul, and Xavi managed to buzz the near post with a lovely free kick from 30 yards out. One more goal would wrap things up for Barcelona, but Milan could easily score again. You'd expect the hosts to progress, of course, but this tie still isn't entirely over.
