AC Milan vs. Barcelona OddsBarcelona and Milan will meet again in the Champions League sides. On Wednesday, the Catalans will visit the San Siro to play the first leg of the knockout stages of the European competition, which also destroyed almost everything they put in front.

FC Barcelona recovered Xavi Hernandez, but will not have David Villa and Adriano to face Milan for Champions League next Wednesday.

The defender Adriano Correia, will not be used by the coach Jordi Roura, as recent a sore hamstring in his right leg.

The Mexican Jonathan Dos Santos, not in the squad technical decision.

But, if Xavi is on the court on Wednesday, as Valdés, Pinto, Alves, Pique, Fabregas, Puyol, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Alexis Sanchez, Lionel Messi, Thiago, Javier Mascherano, Bartra, Sergio Busquets, Pedro Jordi Alba, Montoya, Song, Tello and subsidiary goalkeeper Oier Olazabal.

 

Begins the serious for Barcelona in the Champions League. The Catalans will play its presence in the quarter-final against Milan. A legendary club, the second most successful in this competition, which does not cross its best. However, the Italians have always proven to be very competitive in these playoffs and will demand that the club is not forgetfulness. The good news for the Catalans is that offensive reference milanista, Mario Balotelli, can not play in this competition because he's played this season with the City.

Last season Barca eliminated the Rossoneri and the final ranking for the fifth consecutive time, but this time are those of Allegri in the eighth, hoping to qualify for the quarterfinals. The Blaugrana are placed as leaders of Spanish football while the Rossoneri ranks third in Serie A in which the arrival of Mario Balotelli has given a new breath, but the Italian will not leave in the Champions League with Milan since being with Manchester City and played games in the competition.

Jordi Roura recovered for this meeting to Xavi Hernandez just in time. The midfielder had suffered a tear in the hamstring that kept him sidelined for 15 days, but the bad news is that the Catalan coach will be without Adriano nor with David Villa who has been in this city to keep exercising and regain his best form soon.

Allegri has so far questioned his striker El Shaarawy who suffers from an inflammation in his left knee, so it looks like it will Bojan Krkic holder and if so, will be the first time the Barca squad faces its former team, something that has definitely motivated. The tie looks for a match that will not be resolved on Wednesday at San Siro, but must be played 180 minutes of back and forth to meet qualifier.

The lawn could again be one of the protagonists of the game, Pep Guardiola complained about the state of the field at San Siro and submitted a formal complaint to UEFA. The Milan who had committed to watering before the meeting did not comply with the agreed policy on food and it was a good game plan to stop Barca, but also to damage players' knees.
