This Save On Robin van Persie Saved AC Milan’s UCL Hopes (Video)

abbiati save on van persie 1Following AC Milan’s 4-0 victory over Arsenal at the San Siro on February 15, many expected the second leg of this UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match-up to provide little excitement.

Those many, including myself, were wrong.

Things couldn’t have been much crazier during yesterday’s return leg at Arsenal Stadium, as the home side scored three goals in the opening half, bringing themselves back to within one goal in aggregate.¬† And while most of those watching the game probably thought the Gunners would be good for at least one goal during the final 45 minutes of the half, the majority were once again wrong, as Milan were able to hold on for their dear lives and escape with the 4-3 victory¬† on aggregate, thanks in large part to saves like this one by Christian Abbiati on Robin van Persie.

Check it out.
