You're right. Milan were excellent at the back, but to say that the pitch was in great shape or to say that Barcelona didn't have a legit shout for a penalty on the tackle on Sanchez would be a lie. The result was somewhat surprising, and I think Pep will try to even things out next week for the return leg - I wouldn't be surprised to see Barca smash Milan, TBH. I think I'm going to go put down a few on that.
