AC Milan vs FC Barcelona , 2011/12

First Leg – AC Milan 0-0 FC Barcelona

There was nothing to separate the former UEFA Champions League winners at the midway stage of their quarter-final tie after a tense draw in Italy.

AC Milan and FC Barcelona would now have to go to the Camp Nou with a place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in the balance after an absorbing goalless draw.

Second Leg – FC Barcelona 3-1 AC Milan

FC Barcelona produced a performance full of power and intelligence to defeat AC Milan and progress to the semi-finals for the fifth successive season.

Two penalties from Lionel Messi, the first his 50th goal in this competition which set a new scoring mark for a UEFA Champions League season, had Barcelona in front at half-time despite a first-class equaliser from Antonio Nocerino.
Andrés Iniesta extended the hosts’ advantage early in the second period and the holders held on in some comfort, only Gerard Piqué limping off in the second half souring their night.
