Barcelona vs. AC Milan, 2013 UEFA Champions League: David Villa makes it 3-0

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

A defensive mistake by AC Milan allowed David Villa to put Barcelona up 3-0 and take the lead on aggregate.

Barcelona were out of the blocks quickly in the second half as you might expect. In the 47th minute, Lionel Messi was back making a slalom-like run into the Milan are before cutting outside and putting a low shot on target. Christian Abbiati easily made the save but it was yet another reminder for Milan about how precarious their situation is.

In the 55th minute the inevitable happened as Barcelona scored yet again. Milan did it to themselves in a way with a terrible clearance attempt by Christian Zapata that was intercepted by Xavi. After taking a moment to look over his options Xavi sent a pass back into the Milan box that Kevin Constant decided to try and jump out on. He missed and left David Villa one-on-one with Christian Abbiati. Villa buried his shot into the corner of the net and Barca are now up 3-0 on the day and 3-2 on aggregate.

Things are not looking good at all for MIlan.
