Moral victory

Facing Liverpool in Istanbul’s Attaturk Stadium on May 25 will be six-times European Cup winners AC Milan, who reached their 10th final in this competition despite being played against the wall by PSV Eindhoven. The Italians 2-0 home leg advantage was cancelled out by the 65th minute with strikes from Park Ji-Sung and Cocu, and AC Milan must have had horrific visions of last year’s game against Deportivo la Coruna which was lost despite a 4-1 lead. To manager Carlo Ancelotti’s relief, Massimo Ambrosini rose in the dying minutes of normal time to head home the all-important away goal. Cocu managed to reply once more before the whistle went, but, on this occasion, the better team had lost.
