Barcelona vs. AC Milan, 2013 UEFA Champions League: A quarter hour left to play

Update - Match report: Barcelona 4-0 AC Milan, final score

Milan are starting to look a bit more dangerous after a couple substitutions have gotten some fresh legs in on their attack. Barcelona's defense is still shaky and with Milan only needing one goal to take back the advantage, every foray into the Barca defensive third is an adventure.

It certainly looked like Milan would find a goal in the 68th minute after cross by Ignazio Abate pinballed around the Barcelona area before the referee finally spotted a foul against Milan, ending the attack. Both Robinho and Kevin-Prince Boateng had chances on the ball but neither could find the target. It was an extremely nervy moment to say the least.

Barcelona have definitely backed off just a bit despite the fact another goal would be decisive for them. They're still attacking but they also know they just need to be smart and not take quite as many risk with the aggregate lead now in their favor. With only 15 minutes left to play at the Camp Nou, there's little doubt their defense is going to be tested a least a couple more times by Milan.
