Tough luck if barca are missing Pique/Puyol next month. Though you shouldn't gloat if you win without both or make it an excuse if you lose.

I chose milan to destroy barca because of my bias Razz ,, but bias aside barca could grab both wins just because of the midfield and attack combo. Milan really needs that connector in the middle, kind of reminds me of us madrid with our midfield. Milan should take note if they want to cause an upset.

Perhaps you are caught in the past. Milan, unfortunately, has gotten much stronger this year and Allegri is a young genius of a manager that has won a Scudetto now. I watch Milan's players on the field, they are really fighters and are talented. Even Abate who was a joke last year, is now the best crosser at full speed I have ever seen. Of course, you are entitled to your opinion, but please don't be upset when I say "I told you so" a month hence.

I watch just about every Milan game, this has been going on for the past 4-6 years. Believe me, I know the Milan team inside and out. I have respect for Allegri, but wouldn't consider him to be a genius. (I'd like to think you'd have a better idea of his career) I'm just judging him from one season. Once again, I have tons of respect for Abate, but saying he is not the best crosser at full speed seems a bit much. I think we will see an improved Abate once again this season, but I'd like to think his crossing can be worked on. (I saw some nice signs of that in the preseason) But we haven't seen that over the span of a season.

At the end of the day these two teams have to play the games, anything we say will have no effect on the game. I promise not to be upset if/when you tell me I told you so.

P.S. If anything I'm caught in the now. The now of course being Barca, I try to take in as many games from them each year. If there is one thing I respect it's the beautiful game and no one is doing it better than them for the last couple of years.

If you like tiki taka you will like Barcelona. I don't like tiki taka. To me, it is not the beautiful game. Of course, that is only my opinion.

Milan has a very good defense that might be able to hold out for long periods, but I think they will have difficulty scoring

Milan is def a good team now they def improved alot, great coach and good players like you guys say. Both teams have a solid defence and i think Barca slightly better offence. The battle of these games will be decided by the midfield and to be honest because i am neutral and have no bias barcas midfield will prevail! This is football and anything can happen so if Milan pull off the wins then i will show the proper respect because they will beat the best team in the world.

The dynamic, quick switch from defense to attack style of Germany does it for me. The 2 dozens+ of goals in the last WC don't like. And they are better to watch right now than Spain!

As for the debate, I think Barca's defense will find it a bit hard to cope with Robinho, Pato, Cassano and last but not least Ibracadabra. Milan have a lot of attacking flair, and if it can show against Inter, then it can show against the very attacking minded Barca who will often leave space in the back.

I voted in an answer I don't believe in: Milan destroying Barca in both games. Just because of my bias...

Anti-footballish, I guess to each their own. Most people underestimate how much skill it takes to play that way. I despise Mourinho and his style, but at the end of the day I respect it for what it is. Keeping possession, making the right plays, playing for each other ect. Do you consider all teams that play offensive and move the ball well to be tiki taka? Everything you say seems to be a generalization, where is the wiggle room, some pun intended.

If you like Barca, you like tiki taka.
If you think Milan will lose you're a recent bandwagoner.

Everything in life is not so black and white.

You may think that a history of winning (and having players who have won) the champions league has no bearing on a CL game, but I do.

As far as Barcelona having undeniably have the advantage, that's an opinion and I can deny it all I want.

i Do you consider all teams that play offensive and move the ball well to be tiki taka?

Tiki taka, which means holding the ball with horizontal passing, is not offensive football. It works well against the English pass and hoof it style because it prevents English teams from playing, but, against a talented and disciplined Italian team like Inter (or Milan), Barca will lose more often than win, especially when it is 11 players against 11 players.

All 11 of them Shocked

Abiatti

Abate---Nesta---Silva---Zambrotta

Van Bommel---Mexes

Antonini---Ambrosini---Emanuelson

Bonera

Gattuso as the super-sub.

Come at us :coffee:

In all seriousness though I think that a repeat of Inter's group stage performances against Barcelona may well be in order, a draw at home, though I think 1-1 more likely than Inter's 0-0 and a loss in Spain would be the safest bet. In much the same way as Inter, Milan shouldn't be too worried about these fixtures beyond ensuring our pride and they should be used as learning curves. Beating Barcelona in the group stages doesn't get you any closer to the trophy, if we can beat them it should be a surprise in the latter stages. It's a great litmus test, however both sides will likely not yet be at their peak and we'll still be learning how to play them. Allegri will be up against the wall from the beginning with our campaign beginning in the Camp Nou, however he learns from each mistake he makes so expect the team to get progressively better from half time in Spain.

In the group stage Inter had just gotten all the new players Sneijder, Eto'o etc. and was not a disciplined team yet. Once the spring came and the team had gelled, Barca lost 3-1 and won (but was eliminated) against an Inter that had only ten men for more than 70 minutes. A great, far superior team should be able to destroy a team playing with 10 men for most of the match. Don't know how much you paid UEFA off for that red card decision. I still remember peekaboo Piquet or Busquets forget which of the two clowns dove.
