I don't get this. Everyone is making a big deal out of being 0-2 from the first leg. Scoring three goals at home in 90 minutes isn't hard for Barça. If you watched the game you'd have realised within 15 minutes they were going to prevail.

Indeed. The real horror show is going to be tonight in the Allianz.

Most people though Milan would be able to at least score one, which would mean Barca had to score 4 to advance (which they did anyway, but that's beside the point). Plus looking at Barca's current form before the game made a lot of people think they weren't going to pull it off. What people didn't see coming was the absolute domination Barca unloaded.

Plus Barca havn't been playing well recently. This was the old Barca and not the one we have seen in the last month.

I really don't like the whole 'away goals count more' sort of thing. Both teams get 90 home minutes and 90 away minutes. Straight aggregates make more sense to me. Then again, there's a shiatload about soccer that makes no sense, so small potatoes I guess.

Oh and fark Barca and their loony separatist fans. Actually IDGAF about La Liga in general, except for how Ozil's doing.

Currently the best player in the world... and might end up being the best ever.

Away goals rule is stupid, but without it you'd have more shootouts, which are stupid.

Plus the 2nd team to host has such an advantage for being home in overtime

The whole setup really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

I remember one year Celtic lost a tie after a 1-1 overtime at Parkhead. That was the first time I'd heard that away goals count in overtime. I was stunned.

The theory is that the away team is at a disadvantage and scoring is harder so the goal is worth 1.1 or 1.2 goals. Thus in the event of ties the team with more away goals wins.

So why couldn't they do that against Chelsea?

/That first goal from Messi...WOOF!

There's an argument to be made for and against the away goals rule.

For:  Encourages away sides to look for the odd goal which sees them through.  Encourages more open play from both sides
Against:  See Schalke v. Galatasaray.  Schalke had the majority of the possession in the 2nd half but since Galatarsaray had the away goals advantage, they put 10 in the box and hoped to break on the counter.

Chelsea had 11 goalies on that game.

If Milan scored instead of hitting the post and then giving up an immediate goal the other way we wouldn't be reading this story

The score was 4-0. The fark was the team coming back from? A zero goal deficit?

No team had ever come back from a two goal deficit without an away goal. In the history of the Champion's League. It was a big farking deal.

A 2-0 deficit in the first leg. Technically the final score was 4-2.

I disagree. Without it, road teams park the bus much more often. The away-goals tiebreaker makes for more entertaining games.

Yeah, I heard that stat yesterday and found it incredible. Coming back from two goals down isn't so uncommon, I guess teams are more/ better defensive in the knock-out stages of the CL.

That's the nature of the game.  In some matches, executing that one chance changes the entire atmosphere of that game.

He'll be the best ever when he actually plays against good competition.
