MILAN WAVED the Champions League goodbye for at least a year and a half as they were knocked out of the elite club competition by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday evening at the Vicente Calderon Stadium. Atletico were superior from start to finish and three minutes in the game, Diego Costa netted his first of the evening. Milan had some good moments in the first half and even scored in the 27′ minute with Kaka heading the ball to the back of the goal which seemed to give them some energy but Atletico took the wind out of Milan’s sails with an Arda Turan goal in the 40′ minute. The second half was disastrous and the Spanish side did whatever they want and scored twice through Raúl García (71′) and Costa again (85′). Milan never seemed to be in the game and had no fighting spirit and couldn’t outdo themselves and surprise the world. Terrible game and a terrible way to get knocked out of the Champions League.
