The rossoneri looked to be disappointed with the result as they fail to secure their first win in the tournament, as Club America, with this win they are now leading the table with 8 points, followed by Chelsea.

The match:

The first half started with a good pace and nice atmosphere as both team looked to impress the fans, however it was the Mexican side who arguably did most of the attacking intentions in the early part of the half, with Milan seems trying to get in to their stripes. Despite looking more dangerous, Club America didn't really trouble Milan except from one shot by Cabanas which was taken easily by the Italian team keeper Marco Storari. Meanwhile, the 7 time Champions League winner, who is still adapting with their new coach's system, despite not making lots of attempts in the first half, actually have the better chances. The first notable opportunities spurn by the Italian giants comes from their RB Luca Antonini, latching on Ronaldinho's pass, Luca sprung pass the offside trap but saw his shoot ballooned over the crossbar. Another clear cut chances for Milan came from Ronaldinho's free kick which just hit the top corner of the bar. Failing to convert anything, both teams gets back in to the dressing room with a stalemate result.
