2012 UEFA Champions League:AC Milan vs. FC BarcelonaMarch 28, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, AC Milan play Barcelona in the 1st leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The game will start at 18:45PM GMT.

AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati is not expecting an easy game against FC Barcelona. This is the third meeting between the two clubs this season. In the Group Stage, AC Milan was able to salvage a 2-2 draw against FC Barcelona but in their 2nd meeting Barcelona won, 3-2 and eventually topped Group H with 5 wins and 1 draw record.

FC Barcelona is led by Argentinean Lionel Messi but he has a star-studded squad who support him when the game is on the line. This club could create 20 goal scoring opportunities per game and makes their opponent's goal keeper busy and edgy during a match.

The sports book handicappers have installed FC Barcelona as the favorite to beat AC Milan on Wednesday night. AC Milan may have a slight chance on this game if Lionel Messi has an off night.
