Barcelona vs AC Milan - Five blasts from the past

Ronaldinho Barcelona

Ahead of Barcelona's Champion's league fixture against AC Milan HITC's Rana Malook recalls 5 wonder strikes from previous encounters.

5 - Demetrio Albertini - 18/10/00 - AC Milan 3:3 Barcelona

Rivaldo scored a hattrick with two sublime free kicks in this game. Albertini also scored a thunderbolt of a free kick. However this spectacular strike from an improbable distance was the pick of the game. 

4. David Villa 13/09/11 Barcelona 2:2 AC Milan

This sublime free kick was captured in all its glory by a fan from a perfect angle behind the goal.

3. Ronaldinho 02/11/04Barcelona 2:1 AC Milan

In his prime the silky Brazilian left Alessandro Nesta for dead at the edge of the box before releasing a venomous left foot strike that nestled into the roof of the net. 

2. Kevin-Prince Boateng 23/11/11 - AC Milan 2:3 Barcelona

This is a goal the great Ronaldinho would've been proud of. Boateng's incredible control, backheel flick and strike was something very special indeed. 

1. Dejan Savicevic 18/05/94 AC Milan 4:0 Barcelona

Arguably the best goal ever scored by a player in this encounter, Savicevic's chip gets better every time you see it. Bearing in mind Barcelona goal keeper Andoni Zubizaretta was one of the best in the world at the time makes it even more praiseworthy. (The goal can be seen at 3:00 on this short documentary clip)
