Three reasons why A.C Milan should be investigated.

1. The ball isn't an official CL ball, looks abnormally heavy.

2. Blinding lasers from the crowd

3. The pitch is dead and gluey ground

Disgraceful

I am aware that the pitch would have had a bearing in us beating them but nah

THIS IS FOOTBALL

Suck it up and deal with it

I agree, and Arsenal should have complained as well.

But due to the score, that woulda been very salty.

It's not about two physical entities playing on a pitch it's more about how they are playing on the pitch.

Barcelona have 1 way of playing, that's quick, 1 touch, compact triangles, intricate dribbling and exposing tight spaces.

That pitch last night went against each an every variable mentioned there, it was impossible for them to play.

AC Milan have been playing the same football this year in Serie A but they significantly changed their approach against Barcelona.

Completely avoided the midfield and centre of the pitch.

They focused on keeping the ball of as little as possible, the centrebacks were designed to play the ball over the midfield onto the flanks.

Milan knew they could play this way because they have a 6ft 4inch striker whose powerful that could take advantage in the air over Mascherano.

On the breaks they looked to exploit this especially with Noicerino on the right wing - if it weren't for the late inclusion of Puyol at left back then they would have enjoyed more success.

Clever or desperate.

The 2nd leg Barcelona will gain revenge and everyone knows it.

Wimbledon used to grow their grass to the maximum allowed length (was something like 4 inches) and train on the same length all season round, when other clubs would come there they'd obviously not be used to it and be f*cked.

Which is why most games are played home and away.

When you play at home it is supposed to be your advantage. Why make it easier for the other team?

Ive seen wonder goals scored on 45 degree angle pitches that have no grass on and potholes at the weekend,

these pros are getting paid millions, they can deal with 'below average' thousand pound pitches ffs.

* Qatar International *

Faze pretty much summed it up though.

And @Mark Iniesta, I don't think AC Milan are responsible for providing UEFA branded balls. that's UEFA's own f*ckup

this is minor compared to the Young Boys pitch Tottenham had to play on. Had to play in next boots on a complete next surface. nothing was done about that, nothing needs to be done about this
