I agree on that. Milan was simply the better team yesterday. Defensively solid, kept the lines close together and created several good chances. They simply exploited the weaknesses of Barcelona very effectively. That said, there is still a full match to play in Nou Camp, anything is possible.

Chelsea last season on the other that was a statistic anomaly. They retained an impossibly high conversion rate while giving away loads of chances per game that opponents somehow kept missing.

If Barcelona will be eliminated, it really opens up the stage. There's about half a dozen team left who have the potential to win it.
