The seven European cups are many and in matches like today against Arsenal, Milan proves that it has not won it just by chance! The "Rossoneri" crushed the "gunners" 4-0 in Milan, in their first game for the "16" of the Champions League and essentially "locked" its qualification to the quarterfinals from today…
Things and miracles by Boateng, Robinho and Ibrahimovic who took advantage of the… childish defensive behavior of the Londoners who seemed from one point onwards… lost on the pitch.
Wenger's team is unrecognizable, slow in their reactions and problematic in their choices, they lost the battle of the center from the first minute thanks to Allegri's diamond. He threatened a few times and in all of them he saw Abiati saying "no". Now, he is looking for a miracle in the rematch at "Emirates" knowing that no team in a European tournament has ever overturned a 4-0 loss in double games.
Wenger's decision to leave Chamberlain out of the match and throw Rosicki in the starting lineup did not work out for him. It made Arsenal very slow and Milan took advantage of that from the beginning. Allegri's midfielder could not be broken by Arsenal, with the home team stealing balls and constantly attacking. The "Rossoneri" dissolved the defense of the "gunners" every time they went on the counterattack, Boateng, Robinho and Ibrahimovic realized that their rhythm forced the Londoners' rear to collapse and took advantage of it!
The forced change of Seedorf and the entry of Emanuelson in the 11th minute, did not change the plans and the image of Milan, which had Boateng in an amazing situation. Initially, the Ghanaian midfielder of Milan with an amazing volley from a side position "executed" Cesni in the 18th minute for 1-0, while the Brazilian striker gave the Italians two goals in the 35th minute, from an assist by Ibrahimovic! Arsenal did not manage to threaten the opponent's home in the first 45 minutes, without taking a single shot, to take the form of a patchwork on the pitch of "San Siro".
In the second half, Wenger threw Henry in the match and took out Walcott in order to make his team more aggressive. But things did not turn out the way he wanted. In the 49th minute of the match, Robinho moved out of the area, saw Vermaelen slip and fall and with a shot with the right slide, beat Cesni to make it 3-0.
In the 65th minute, Arsenal worked well offensively and made an impressive phase with Henry paving beautifully for Van Persie. The Dutchman shot on the move but Abiati made a very good operation.
The victory took on dimensions of triumph in the 79th minute. Ibrahimovic was overthrown by Jourou, the referee awarded a penalty and the Swede defeated Sezni by the white ball for 4-0.
Chamberlain, who had passed in the match, failed to do anything or give what Arsenal was looking for with the parallel football in which he had indulged. In the 84th Van Persie saw Abiati say "no" again and somewhere there, the match ended. In fact, in the last phase, Pato, who reappeared after a month, almost made it 5-0 but Cesni was ready.
