Minute Commentary
90' BARCELONA THROUGH TO ROUND TWO
It looked like it might be a drubbing at the hands of Barcelona, but AC Milan made a good fist of it in the second half before ultimately succumbing to a return to brilliance by Lionel Messi. The first half was hugely dictated by the home side, who dominated possession and peppered Milan's area with dangerous balls. Lionel Messi gave them the lead from the penalty spot after Neymar was tugged back by Abate. Sergio Busquets then doubled the lead from Xavi's free-kick, enjoying an unmarked header in the box although there were suggestions of offside. However, with Barca seemingly strolling to victory they were dealt a shock when Kaka - who was Milan's brightest player in the first period - burst into the area and saw his cross deflected in by Gerard Pique for an own goal. At half-time Milan brought on Mario Balotelli - inexplicably left out of the starting line-up - and he set about terrorising Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano, whipping in a teasing ball that Kaka couldn't get onto and then fashioning his own chance after beating two players. With Milan looking threatening, the home side upped the tempo again, with Neymar and Messi starting to combine to devastating effect. It was the combination of Messi and replacement Cesc Fabregas that ultimately sealed the game though. A sumptuous one-two in midfield saw the striker set free and he dinked the ball over Abbiati from close range. AC Milan's heads dropped after that and Barcelona pressed for a fourth that never came. It doesn't matter though, they go through to the last 16 and can be hugely confident of going all the way. For Milan, they now lie level on points with Ajax and will likely need at least four points from their final two group games to join the Spaniards in round two. Thank you for joining us here at the Nou Camp.
90' FULL-TIME
They won't get anymore but they don't need to. Barcelona win 3-1 here and, with Ajax seconds from beating Celtic in Amsterdam, it's safe to say that they're through to the last 16.
90' BARCELONA LOOKING FOR MORE
Barcelona haven't eased up one jot. Alexis Sanchez is on the right of the area and he stands up a cross that's headed away by the Milan defence.
88' FINAL BARCELONA CHANGE
A sterling evening's work by Xavi Hernadez. The skipper goes off to be replaced by Alex Song.
87' LIONEL MESSI LOOKING FOR HAT-TRICK
Lionel Messi's got the taste for it now and once again charges into the Milan area. He's prevented from getting a shot in by a diving Philippe Mexes, who sends the Argentinian tumbling but crucially gets his foot to the ball first.
85' BARCELONA SUBSTITUTION
Neymar has been excellent tonight and takes a well-deserved round of applause as he's brought off by Gerardo Martino. He's replaced by Pedro.
83' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Brilliant from Lionel Messi. A one-two between the Argentinian and Cesc Fabregas in the midfield sees him charge into the Milan area past a challenge, before dinking the ball past Abbiati from close range with his left foot. He's back.
81' BARCELONA UP THE ANTE AGAIN
We're back to wave upon wave of Barcelona attacks as the home side seek to up the ante. First Xavi tries to find Neymar with a through ball, but it's cut out by De Jong. Messi then attempts similar but the Brazilian can't quite get to it. There's surely another goal in this somewhere.
77' BARCELONA SUBSTITUTION
Top class from tackle from Javier Mascherano to stop Balotelli on the half-way line. He'd have been away otherwise. Andres Iniesta comes off to be replaced by Cesc Fabregas. Not a bad back-up eh?
74' GREAT SAVE FROM CHRISTIAN ABBIATI
Great interlinking play from Neymar and Messi as Barcelona break forward again before the Argentinian draws the final Milan defender and frees Alexis Sanchez on the right of the area to surely put it away. No! Brilliant save from Abbiati to turn it away from a corner. How didn't that go in?
72' ALMOST BRILLIANT FROM NEYMAR
Another long passage of Barcelona play looks like it's going nowhere but then all of a sudden Neymar bursts into the left. He goes past one, then two, then three Milan challenges in the area. The goal is beckoning but he fires high and wide! Brilliant run, poor execution from the Brazilian.
68' NEYMAR FOILED BY BRILLIANT CHALLENGE
Lionel Messi shrugs off a challenge from Mexes and spreads the ball to Alexis Sanchez on the right; his ball to Neymar is perfect and only a last gasp challenge from Zapata stops the Brazilian from pulling the trigger in the area.
67' ADRIANO LONG RANGE EFFORT
Let's not forget that Barcelona have looked dangerous on every attack and so it goes again as Neymar bursts into the area and wins a corner. From there, Adriano fires another long range effort wide.
66' CONTEST COMING ALIVE
Urby Emanuelson puts in a wonderfully teasing low ball from the left that Balotelli is stretching to reach, but it's put out for a corner by Gerard Pique. It comes to nothing but there's real life in this game as a contest now.
64' MARIO BALOTELLI GIVING MILAN A CHANCE
Lionel Messi runs cross-field trying to find players in space. He finds Neymar on the left who floats past a challenge and puts the ball back into the area to his South American team mate. Messi attempts to force his way past two challenges but there's nothing doing there and Milan clear. From there the Italians break and Balotelli turns past Adriano on the right and skips past Mascherano, before whipping a ball into the area that Kaka can't quite get a good contact on. The ex-Manchester City striker's been dynamite since coming on. Why didn't he start?
61' TOWERING DEFENDING FROM PHILIPPE MEXES
Barcelona break and are three-on-three with Alexis Sanchez looking to thread the ball through to Neymar on the edge of the area. It's cut out by Mexes though - the Frenchman has comfortably been Milan's best defender.
58' ANDRES INIESTA GOES CLOSE!
Another rapid Barcelona attack sees Lionel Messi's cross deflected out for a corner. It's taken quickly by Xavi from the right, passing again to Messi. He finds Iniesta on the edge of the area who sees his right foot shot from 20 yards tipped around the post by Abbiati.
55' AC MILAN BRIGHTER THIS HALF
It's a more even second half here; AC Milan are looking more robust in defence than they did in the first half and it's allowing them to get on the front foot more. It's still only Kaka who looks like he's going to spark anything however and the Brazilian goes on a jinking run that ends on the edge of the Barcelona area.
52' GOAL DISALLOWED
Goal! Or is it? A speculative right foot shot from Adriano on the edge of the Milan area takes a wicked deflection and loops over Abbiati. But Messi is offside in the area and it's ruled out.
50' MARIO BALOTELLI CHANCE
The Italians comes again down the right hand side and Balotelli spins past two challenges deep in the Barcelona area and forces a save from Victor Valdes with a right foot shot.
49' ...MESSI ERROR!
Then again... Messi is dispossessed in midfield and Milan break with Balotelli and Kaka. The latter attempts to get the ball back to the Italian international after running up the left, but it's cut out by Barca.
47' VINTAGE MESSI
Well, Lionel Messi is certainly proving his detractors wrong. The little South American goes on a typically mazy run, holding off three challenges and finding Andres Iniesta on the edge of the area; the ball is returned to him but a desperate Milan challenge comes in and Xavi's follow up shot is high and wide.
46' SECOND PERIOD RESUMES
There's been one change at half-time. Mario Balotelli is on the field in place of Robinho. Barcelona get things under way kicking from right to left.
45' HALF-TIME SUMMARY
It's been all Barcelona this half but AC Milan go into the tunnel at half-time with a barely deserved lifeline after that Gerard Pique own goal right on the whistle clawed it back to 2-1, after goals from Lionel Messi (penalty) and Sergio Busquets had given the hosts a seemingly comfortable lead. The Catalans started brightly, with Alexis Sanchez finding himself with the ball deep in the Milan area but unable to control the ball. He popped up in dangerous positions all half and narrowly failed to convert Messi's low ball into the box minutes later. It was the Argentinian who broke the deadlock - and ended his three game goal drought - with a penalty after Ignazio Abate committed one of several fouls on Neymar. Busquets then doubled the lead with a free header from a Xavi free-kick; there were suggestions of offside but Milan's marking was terrible. However, with the Spaniards looking supreme, a break from Kaka - who has battled determinedly throughout - saw the visitors pull one back after his low ball into the box was deflected into his own net by Gerard Pique. They're going to need to work out how to get the ball off Barcelona if they're going to get anything from this, but Milan's situation isn't looking as bleak as it was.
45' HALF-TIME
That's the final act of the half here, the referee blows for half-time.
45' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Lifeline for Milan! Kaka bursts into the penalty area on the left and puts in a low ball that deflects off Gerard Pique and wrong foots Victor Valdes in the Barca net. Kaka deserved that, he's been the visitor's sole attacking threat.
44' ADRIANO CHANCE
Another good chance for Barcelona. Adriano sees that there isn't much on ahead of him so decides to have a pop himself. His 30 yard right foot drive from the centre of the field is tipped over by Abbiati for a corner.
43' ARE AC MILAN SET FOR HUMILIATION?
This could be humilitation for the Italians as Iniesta piles forward in space. He finds Neymar who is cancelled out on the edge of the area and Milan gratefully break clear. They've not had a moment's respite all half and they're on the back foot once again as Kaka is met by a stern challenge from Dani Alves as he tries to make something happen in the Spaniards' half.
40' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Sergio Busquets has a free header in the penalty area from Xavi Hernandez' free kick to the left of the AC Milan penalty and he powers the ball beyond Abbiati into the net. 2-0. Game over?
37' LIONEL MESSI ALMOST MAKES IT TWO
Lionel Messi is almost in for his second after he jinks through two challenges; his chip over Abbiati in the six yard box is headed away by Mexes.
34' FIRST MILAN SHOT ON GOAL
AC Milan are trying to get back on level terms and Muntari finds Kaka in space on the right of the Barca area. The Brazilian cuts the ball back to Montolivo on the edge of the area who fires a right foot shot just wide. That's their first attempt on goal - but then they have only had 30% of the possession.
31' SULLEY MUNTARI CAUTIONED
Horrible looking challenge from Sulley Muntari as Dani Alves knocks the ball past him on the left of the field. It's a two-footed tackle and the midfielder is perhaps lucky that he's received only a yellow card there.
29' GOOOAAALLL!!!
The drought is over! Lionel Messi was always going to be taking this, and the Argentinian drills it hard into the left of the goal.
28' PENALTY TO BARCELONA
Penalty Barcelona! Neymar's been suffering at the hands of Abate all game and finally the full-back is given a yellow after tugging him. More crucially, it's in the area and that means a penalty.
25' NEYMAR LOOKING LIVELY
Neymar makes a surging run into the Milan half but is dispossessed and the visitors look to build up from the back. They just can't keep the ball though and it's hooked up towards the Brazilian again on the left of the area. He jinks and weaves and puts a wicked ball into the box that Mexes strains to head away.
22' CHRISTIAN ABBIATI MOMENT OF MADNESS!
Madness from Christian Abbiati! He hits a weak ball to Philippe Mexes on the Milan byline from the goal kick. Mexes is under pressure from Alexis Sanchez and has to return it; the veteran keeper then cannons the ball off the Barca midfielder and is lucky that it goes out for a goal kick. Bizarre.
21' ALEXIS SANCHEZ SO CLOSE!
Neymar takes a long ball on the edge of the area but his back's to the defender and he has to play it back, allowing Milan to get back. Nevertheless, Barcelona work the ball to Adriano on the left if the penalty area who drills a ball across the six yard box. Alexis Sanchez gets a touch to it but not enough to divert it towards goal.
17' RELENTLESS BARCELONA PRESSURE
A corner from Messi is punched away by Christian Abbiati, but the pressure doesn't abate for long with Neymar and Xavi sending probing balls into the area. The danger ultimately breaks down after Iniesta takes on the ball 35 yards out and passes to Dani Alves, who lets a high drive fly with his right foot that's high and wide.
13' ALEXIS SANCHEZ CHANCE
Dani Alves is seeing plenty of the ball on the right and he's constantly getting it in to the danger zone when he does. This time he finds Messi who slips it to Xavi on the edge of the box. The skipper sends the ball into the area and Alexis Sanchez but it's just a bit too hard for the midfielder to bring it under control and he hits a somewhat scuffed shot that's deflected by Mexes into the arms of Abbiati.
10' ABATE FOULS AGAIN
Ignazio AbateMilan are on a rare foray forward and Kaka puts the ball into the box with Robinho trying to put Victor Valdes under pressure. It's cleared by the defence though and the home team come away with the ball. Up the other end Alexi Sanchez sprays the ball out wide to the left and to Xavi, who plays it short to Neymar. The Brazilian is fouled by Ignazio Abate, whose looking rather niggly tonight. He needs to watch himself.
5' LIONEL MESSI INVOLVED EARLY ON
Lionel Messi hasn't scored in three games but he's pretty handy at providing for others too, you know? A one-two with Xavi is foiled but only comes to Sergio Busquets, who has his shot saved. Moments later the Argentinian threads a ball through into the area for Neymar, whose first touch lets him down when he had time to control and shoot. Barca looking threatening early doors.
3' BARCELONA FREE-KICK
Barcelona are quickly into their rhythm here and are looking to cut through Milan early on. A challenge from De Jong on Neymar gives the home side a free kick about 30 yards out just to the left of centre. Xavi steps up and curls the ball over the wall but to the left of the post.
1' WE'RE UNDER WAY
The team captains Xavi and Riccardo Montolivo are in the centre circle tossing up. It will be AC Milan getting things going in all-white, playing from right to left. Bara are in their familiar home kit of blue and claret with blue shorts.
0' THE TEAMS ARE OUT ON THE PITCH
The players are walking out onto the pitch here at the Nou Camp. Here's a stat that any followers of AC Milan won't be particularly thrilled about being told: the Rossoneri have won only three of their last 16 away Champions League ties, and only one of their last 11 in Spain. Sorry, Milan fans.
0' TEAM NEWS REACTION
For Barcelona, defenders Gerard Pique and Adriano are both in the team after overcoming injury. Pique picked up his knock in the last match against Milan, but played 90 minutes against Espanyol at the weekend. Adriano missed the Catalan derby with a hamstring injury but has been deemed fit enough for tonight. The big surprise in the Milan team announcement is that former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli drops to the bench, with Robinho starting by himself up front and Kaka playing off him.

0' STUTTERING AC MILAN ARE CLEAR UNDERDOGS
Massimiliano Allegri would be one man who'd be happy for Messi to have an off night. The pressure is on for the Rossoneri manager with his side languishing in 12th in Serie A – a situation worsened by a 2-0 home defeat to Fiorentina at the weekend. His side have looked slightly better in European competition and are currently unbeaten in Group H having beaten Celtic and drawn at Ajax and Barca; but with Kaka's return stuttering and a rickety defence that's a far cry from the great back fours of Milan past, they can't be considered anything other than underdogs tonight.
0' LIONEL MESSI FORM CRISIS?
A side as enduringly successful as Barcelona don't find themselves the subject of crisis reports too often in the press. However, even though the Catalan giants have won three in a row in La Liga since meeting Milan a couple of weeks ago – and sit comfortably atop the league – reporters are trying to paint out an issue with star man Lionel Messi. According to them, the Argentinian superstar is struggling for form and fitness. They may have a point; since returning from a calf injury last month, the pocket rocket has only scored one goal, and is without a strike in three games. It says much of the incredibly high standards the 26 year-old has achieved over his career that this could be considered a crisis in form; Barca coach Gerardo Martino has had to defend him repeatedly in recent days, snapping earlier in the week "I think that this must be the third news conference in the last five days and more or less the 20th question about Leo's situation. And I will continue saying exactly the same thing. What I am is happy to have him, to be able to coach him and have him in the team.”
0' WELCOME TO THE NOU CAMP
Welcome to the Nou Camp! Between them, Barcelona and AC Milan have won the European Cup 11 times, although it's been the Catalans who've been the more fancied side over the past few seasons in the competition, rather than the Italians – who last won the trophy in 2007. The two sides drew 1-1 at the San Siro a couple of weeks ago, though, suggesting the gulf between them isn't as wide as it might be perceived. Barcelona are in the driving seat in Group H, with seven points from three games, and a win tonight would secure qualification if Celtic fail to beat Ajax in Amsterdam. For AC Milan, a win would see them leapfrog the Spaniards to the top of the group, but a defeat would see them fall back into the pack.
