It is definitely a much balanced match compare to last night. Both clubs have great opportunities to score. Although Milan may have a slight more control and possession in the match. It just lack the goals. Both clubs attacked well and hardly any bad tackles were seen.

Shevchenko had many chances blocked. It is quite an unlucky night for him. He could have scored at least 3 goals. Lyon themselves look steady and tough. I am sure the tie is not fully over yet. They could bring some surprises in San Siro for the return leg. Both are equally good at the back. Coupet and Dida had one of the greatest nights of their careers. This is the main reason no goals are scored. Milan did not miss their regular defenders with a stable and solid defence that is really reliable.

Gilardino had quite a quiet night for his standards. Kaka and Shevchenko were the dangermen for Milan. Gattuso is as always very hardworking chasing every single balll. Lyon's strikers Carew and Wiltord are also impressive whole night through. They just lack that finishing touch to kill the match at home.

The other match was Inter Milan Vs. Villarreal. Adriano finally scored but the away goal scored by Forlan could prove very deadly during the return leg. There will be a possibility for another Inter-Milan clash again if Inter go through this time again!
