Champions League failure would be a blessing in disguise for Milan

Same story, different date. AC Milan lost 3-1 to Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night in a match it felt like we’d seen a thousand times before. The monotony that is a Rossoneri Champions League campaign is quickly getting tiresome, and everybody is losing out, including Milan.

When Philippe Mexes turned home a late winner in the trip to Siena on the final day of last season, it was hoped that Milan would take the near-miss that was its run to the top three as a kick up the back side. But six months on the club is simply reliving last season over again, except that the team is now lacking the slither of hope that Stephan El Shaarawy offered this time last year.
