Milan vs. Barcelona instant analysis

We were treated to a fun night's football when these sides met earlier in the competition (remember Kevin Prince Boateng's exceptional ball control for Milan's second?), and in the course of their two meetings in Group H, nine goals were scored. Barcelona may be the opponents nobody wants but this looks a juicy tie for us neutrals: can Milan -- which was almost caught up by Arsenal despite a 4-0 first-leg lead, but has never lost a home quarterfinal match in this competition -- get ahead here? "We are ready," reckons Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Find out what happens with live play by play updates from Wednesday, 2.30 p.m. ET.
