Milan 2-2 Real Madrid: Spoils Shared Between European Powerhouses
Real Madrid came into this game knowing that they were yet to beat Milan in their own backyard, and that is how the record stayed, as the sides finished the game level-pegging.
Having lost to late goals in the Santiago Bernabeu in the last fixture of this competition, the Spanish club started strongly to right the wrongs that caused the goals last time out. They eventually broke the Rossoneri defence when an ex-San Siro fan-favourite Kaka dribbled past three defenders before unleashing a shot that Dida could only parry. The ball fell into the path of Karim Benzema, who made little fuss in finishing from close range.
However, the Diavoli drew level when the referee pointed to the spot after Pepe had handled the ball during a tackle on Gianluca Zambrotta. Ronaldinho took a perfect penalty and sent the ball into the top corner, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance.
As the man in charge blew the whistle to signal the end of the proceedings, both sides walked away with a piece of the cake.
