A historic meeting between two giants of European football promised thrills, but perhaps no one expected so many. FC Barcelona overcame AC Milan 3-2 in a really attacking, and thrilling, match that was resolved thanks to goals from Van Bommel (o.g.), Messi (pen) and Xavi.
Xavi produced a goal of surgical precision following a pass of exquisite quality from Lionel Messi to give Barcelona a 3-2 win over AC Milan on Wednesday in an enthralling Champions League match which also featured Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring against his former club.
"There is a 90 per cent chance I will stay with Barcelona," he told Canal Plus after his side's 3-2 victory against AC Milan in the Champions League. "I had a meeting with the board today [Wednesday].
"Right now I'm on a great run," added Soldado, who scored his hat-trick against the Belgian champions in just 26 minutes. "The goals are going in and that's important for me. The UEFA Champions League suited my style last season and I really want to continue scoring goals which give the team important victories. I just hope we come through the test in London with flying colours."
