Andres Iniesta was the engine this time, intercepting the ball in the midfield and countering quickly towards the Milan area. Iniesta's pass to the right found Messi who made a quick move around a defender and buried a low shot past Christian Abbiati to make it 2-0.
To be fair the goal was coming but it's still a brutal morale blow for Milan who were only five minutes from getting to halftime still holding the aggregate lead. Instead, they are looking like a punch-drunk fighter just waiting for the final blow or their corner to throw in the towel.
It really looks like they'll need a massive second half effort to prevent Barcelona from finishing the comeback.
