Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    It has ended all square and we are none the wiser as to who will progress on 3 April into the semi-finals. Barcelona came into it as favourites and predictably controlled possession, but Milan looked dangerous on the break and will be disapointed not to have got on the scoresheet.
  • 90+4
    Seedorf (Milan) takes the free-kick.
  • 90+3
    Busquets (Barcelona) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ibrahimović (Milan).
  • 90+2
    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) misses the target.
    That could be the last effort of the night. Barcelona are pressing forward and the midfielder opts to shoot from 20 metres. The low effort is just off target and Christian Abbiati watches it roll wide.
  • 88
    Tello (Barcelona) has a shot blocked.
  • 88
    Messi (Barcelona) has an effort on goal.
    There is almost a late goal for the Argentinian. He cuts in from the right side of the area and shoots low across Christian Abbiati, who gets down well. Tello is first to the loose ball but the bodies get back to block the shot.

  • 78
    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) delivers the corner.
  • 77
    Messi (Barcelona) misses the target.
    It seems the forward is about to break the deadlock but another brilliant block sends the ball wide. This time it is the captain Massimo Ambrosini who throws himself in the way of the goalbound shot.

    Tello (in) - Iniesta (out) (Barcelona)
    The young Spaniard replaces the midfielder. Tello made his UEFA competition debut in the round of 16 second leg against Leverkusen, scoring two. Barcelona are hoping he can work the same magic again this evening.

  • 59
    Messi (Barcelona) misses the target.
    The Argentinian strikes the free-kick over the wall from 25 metres. It just has too much height on it and floats over Christian Abbiati's crossbar. Barcelona are still to really threaten after the interval.
  • 59
    Messi (Barcelona) takes the free-kick.

    El Shaarawy (in) - Robinho (out) (Milan)
    The Brazilian is replaced by the 19-year-old. Robinho will be disappointed with his evening after missing a gilt-edged opening three minutes in. Can his replacement go one better?
  • 51
    Ibrahimović (Milan) is flagged for offside.
  • 47
    Iniesta (Barcelona) misses the target.
    The visitors are on the front foot first and try their luck with another effort from distance, the Spanish international drilling a shot along the ground from outside of the area.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    It was an intriguing first half which both sides will feel they should have opened the scoring. If the game continues in the same vein then surely goals will come.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Richard Aikman, San Siro: This is an engrossing contest in which Barcelona have dominated for large periods and impressed with their breathtaking total football, but Milan have defended like Trojans and might have scored twice themselves. Bring on the second half.
  • 43
    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) misses the target.
    Barcelona have attempted to pick the lock so far, but this time the midfielder bypasses his team-mates and has a crack from 25 metres. The right-footed effort curls just over the top-left corner.
  • 41
    Seedorf (Milan) misses the target.
    Antonio Nocerino crosses again from the right and Robinho collects. The Brazilian international rolls possession back to the midfielder 25 metres out but his powerful effort catches a defender and is directed off target.
  • 39
    Iniesta (Barcelona) misses the target.
    More intricate passing from Barcelona around the home box. Daniel Alves eventually gets a cross in from the right but Andrés Iniesta, at the back post, cannot direct his low effort on target.
  • 38
    Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) takes the free-kick.
  • 38
    Robinho (Milan) is flagged for offside.
  • 36

  • 35
    Alexis Sánchez (Barcelona) has a shot blocked.
    Alexis Sánchez is sent clean through and seems certain to put the visitors into the lead, but Luca Antonini gets back brilliantly and makes a goal-saving challenge, blocking just as the Chile winger is about to pull the trigger.
  • 34
    Abbiati (Milan) makes a save.
  • 34
    Messi (Barcelona) has an effort on goal.
    A cross from the right from Daniel Alves is met by Lionel Messi, whose effort is deflected by his own player, Alexis Sánchez, and loops up into the grateful hands of Christian Abbiati.

  • 33
    Boateng (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Xavi Hernández (Barcelona).

    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) has an effort on goal.
    Another beautifully fluid piece of football plays in Xavi Hernández, but Alessandro Nesta gets a foot in the way of the shot. Andrés Iniesta cruised forward before playing in Alexis Sánchez, whose first-time back-heel rolled the ball perfectly into the path of the midfielder.

    Mascherano (Barcelona) takes the free-kick.

    Ibrahimović (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Piqué (Barcelona).

  • 26
    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) has an effort on goal.
    The visitors show their cutting edge as Xavi Hernández jinks down the centre. He plays a rapid one-two with Lionel Messi on the edge of the area before shooting low to Christian Abbiati's right, but the goalkeeper gets down and just saves.
  • Yellow Card
    23
    Seedorf (Milan) is cautioned by the referee.
    The midfielder is just too late as he attempts to tackle Xavi Hernández.
  • 20
    Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) makes a save.
  • 20
    Ibrahimović (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    A brilliant chance for the forward after Massimo Ambrosini steals the ball and Clarence Seedorf plays through a great pass. The Sweden striker has just Víctor Valdés to beat but the goalkeeper gets down well to smother the tame side-footed effort.
  • 17
    Messi (Barcelona) is adjudged to be in an offside position.

    Xavi Hernández (Barcelona) takes the free-kick.
    Barcelona attempt a cunning free-kick and almost break through. They feign to shoot from 30 metres, but instead Xavi plays it short to Sergio Busquets, who slips in Alexis Sánchez. He is through but just loses balance as he is about to shoot.

  • 10
    Abbiati (Milan) takes the free-kick.

    Daniel Alves (Barcelona) misses the target.
    Christian Abbiati almost gifts Barcelona the opening. Lionel Messi shoots low, but the goalkeeper fails to gather cleanly. The ball lands at the feet of Alves but the defence puts him under enough pressure to make him scuff the shot wide.

    Abbiati (Milan) makes a save.

    Keita (Barcelona) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ambrosini (Milan).

    Robinho (Milan) misses the target.
    What a chance for Robinho to open the scoring. Kevin-Prince Boateng shoots and the ball deflects off Gerard Piqué. Zlatan Ibrahimović guides it into the Brazilian's path and he volleys over from close range when completely free.
