AC Milan falls to Sampdoria, 0-1

Newly promoted Sampdoria delivered a message for AC Milan and it wasn't a good one. Christian Abbiati could not move a muscle as Andrea Costa powered in his header to give Sampdoria the winner. In another disturbing sign, the San Siro was half empty as the fans stayed away, disillusioned by the club's failure to sign quality replacements for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

This was less clear cut than Andy Carroll's goal claims which were denied a day earlier in the FA Cup final. It's hard to say if Christian Abbiati was able to parry the ball out before it completely crossed the goal line. In the end it did not really matter as Inter were able to win the match by some distance and the title came to Juventus a week earlier than planned.

It is hard to think that a 3-0 win over AC Milan is worth nothing in context of the competition. No one gave us a ghost of a chance but we so nearly did it.

Arsenal continued their good league from into the Champions League but can consider themselves a little bit unlucky not to execute a perfect fairy tale in Europe after 'only' managed to score three goals against Ac Milan.

Losing 4-0 in the first leg, those three goals obviously weren't good enough to take Arsene Wenger's team advancing but they can be confident with their current form in their attempt to grab the Champions League spot by the end of season.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham. Since 2008 AC Milan is facing an English team in the second round of Uefa Champions League, but in all of these cases they have never managed to pass to the quarter finals of the most important European torunament for clubs.

Even this year beat Arsen Wenger's team won't be easy as Gunners are not the team they used to be at the beginning of the season, when, for example, they lost 8-2 at Old Trafford against Manchester United, in one of the most embarassing matches of the Wenger's era.
