Milan earned an impressive 2-0 win against Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie in front of an overjoyed home crowd. The very best reaction came from Mario Balotelli (who couldn't play as he was cup tied to Man City), Robinho (who couldn't play due to injury) and friends as they stood pitchside and watched. They laughed and sang and bounced their way through stoppage time while Balotelli's girlfriend, Fanny Nequesha, tried to pretend she didn't know them.
There is, of course, still work to be done at the Camp Nou in the second leg and a more desperate Barcelona side will surely put in a stronger performance than they did in Italy. But until then, Milan will bounce.
