There's only so much a team can do to stop Barcelona's rabid attack of elves. Milan knew that they'd lose in a battle of tic tac midfield passing, as half their midfield has two stone bricks instead of feet. Rather, Allegri tired out Barcelona by playing a very deep line, and letting the world class defensive pairing of Sandro Nesta and Thiago Silva neutralize the thunderous blaugrana attack.

As a wise man named Tiziano Crudeli once said, 'Il Miracolo al Camp Nou'. (The Miracle at the Camp Nou)

Matteo Bonetti Born and raised just a few kilometers away from The San Siro, Matteo Bonetti has been watching the Rossoneri ever since childhood. The passion was instilled by a family whose fanaticism for the team dates back to the early 1900's. Instead of bursting with an obscenity laden tirade, or turning any object around him into a projectile weapon after a disappointing Milan outing, Matteo can now channel his emotions into a more effective, and most importantly: safe, manner - writing on a global platform. He is a young journalist whose grandfather was the Vice President of Milan nearly four decades ago. E-mail him:, and follow him on twitter: @TheMilanGuy
