Real with one foot in the Champions League semis; Barça with it all to do at Camp Nou
ThinkSpain , Thursday, March 29, 2012

Barcelona only managed a goalless draw in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final against AC Milan in the San Siro stadium tonight, leaving it all to do at Camp Nou next week.

Plenty of chances were squandered at both ends, with neither team able to get on the scoresheet, and nerves were rife in an edgy second half, with both teams wary of heading into next week's return date with a deficit to make up.

On Tuesday night, Real Madrid were made to sweat but eventually fought past some stubborn resistance from Cypriot minnows APOEL Nicosia to record a 3-0 victory in the first leg of their quarter-final at the G S Pancypria Stadium.

The nine-time European Cup winners were made to work hard for 74 minutes before Karim Benzema broke the deadlock.  Eight minutes later, Kaka doubled their advantage, with Benzema grabbing his brace in stoppage time to seal an emphatic victory.
