Tuesday & Wednesday saw the return of the UEFA Champions League much to the delight of football fans worldwide. In Champions League game week 1 there were some big Champions League Results & one of the big Champions League matches saw current champions Barcelona take on Italian giants AC Milan at the Nou Camp.
The game saw one of the most surprising Champions League Results with AC Milan getting a 2-2 draw against Barcelona. The game couldn’t have started better for AC Milan when Pato showed his pace and scored in the opening 30 seconds of the game, however Milan couldn’t capitalise on their early advantage. Barcelona scored in the 36 minute after a wonderful run from Messi set up Pedro in the 36 minute and just after half time Villa would score a wonderful free kick to give Barcelona the lead. Barcalona would hold that lead until 2 minutes into injury time when Thiago Silva headed in a Seedorf free kick. That ended the game at 2-2 which many would not have predicted before kick off.
