So how was it guys? Last night the Champions League result of Barcelona vs. AC Milan was 0-2. I am expecting Barcelona to win but football is not about what written on paper, it is about on the field. Before this we all know two histories that shocked football world. The first is Manchester United beaten AS Roma 7-0 in knock out stage and the second is how fantastic the game of Liverpool vs. AC Milan in cup final. They came from 3 goals behind and score 3 goals and then win the Final! For me, that is the most fantastic game I ever watched in my life!
