The big game of this Champions League Stage. Santiago Barnabéu will receive a game that can be one Champions League Final. Face to face will be, only the clubs which have in their showcases, the most trophies of this competition.
Real Madrid with nine titles (1955-56, 1956-57, 1957-58, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1965-66, 1997-98, 1999-00, 2001-02)
AC Milan with seven titles (1962/63, 1968/69, 1988/89, 1989/90, 1993/94, 2002/03, 2006/07)
A great game in perspective with really great players from both sides, and a national presence with Portuguese referee, Pedro Proença.
Real Madrid has Jose Mourinho, considered by many the best coach in the world, who was hired to to break Barcelona supremacy in all competitions in recent years. I do not think I need to talk about Real Madrid players list, because all or nearly all, are public knowledge. But I have to highlight a key point for me, which is the ratio Ronaldo / Higuain. this relationship as the press said last year was a competitive relationship between two teammates, which bad consequence for the collective. Today and what we saw on Saturday evening, this strange relationship, passed into history, I think Mourinho was instrumental in cleaning up this problem. Big Mou realized that that was one of Real big problems on last season. What is certain is that Real Madrid will at first in the league with 17 points, 16 goals scored and conceded only three, to point out that this 16 goals scored, 10 were in the last 2 days, 6 at Depor and 4 against Malaga.
On the Milan‘s side, Italian squad have very good players, with great front-line players, which makes us dreaming with football, since Ronaldinho, Robinho, Ibrahimovic and Pato through most veteran Inzaghi. This squad is led by Massimiliano Allegri, Cagliari former coach, which has as main objective return Milan to the title and he has team to that. But that Milan has not yet been truly tested. Worst game could not be, facing Mourinho’s Real Madrid in the Bernabeu is not easy.
Massimiliano and his squad will have capacity to break Mourinho’s unbeaten home that already goes with 8 and a half years (since February 23, 2002, Beira Mar 2-3)? I think not.
Real Madrid will try to stamp the 9 points, 9 points is a nice step to qualification, and also because it may put Milan under pressure in this group because they only have four points from two games.
