Seedorf: AC close to Barca

Clarence Seedorf has said that AC Milan are very much similar to Barcelona after the Italian team only narrowly lost to the Spanish club in the latest Champions League group stage match between the two sides. AC Milan managed to draw with Barcelona in the first match between the two at the Camp Nou. It was expected that Barcelona would be coming out much stronger in the reverse fixture, but it has not happened in the same way as expected. Even though AC Milan lost the match 3-2, they were very close to getting all three points from the match.

Of course, AC Milan had only 41 percentage of the possession during the match, which is quite bad for the home team. However, Clarence Seedorf has said that over the two matches, AC Milan have more than proved that they are on a similar level to the Spanish Champions. One of the reasons for Barcelona not being able to exert the same kind of influence that they have had in the Champions League match as of late is due to the away blues that they have been facing in recent weeks. They have drawn three and lost one of their away matches, which is simply not the level of performance we are used to getting from Barcelona. It is one of the reasons for Real Madrid to enjoy a six-point advantage over the current European Champions.

“We had a great game, showing our value. And the awareness of our resources is vital for the future. We played at the same [level], [and] we stayed at their level. In May, I would like to celebrate the conquest of the Champions League The ball possession is not deceiving: [but] that’s the way they play; we play just in another way,” the Dutch midfielder said.
