The stage is set for a Messi masterclass.
After watching AFC Telford United secure a vital 3 points in their bid to stave off relegation last night it's fair to say that I'm eagerly anticipating tonights mouthwatering champions league tie.
Conference football is at its best when there is something at stake to play for otherwise there is very little on offer to get excited about.
Apart from the pies of course which are pretty damn good at Telford.
Only ITV can ruin tonights feast of football and no doubt they will do their worst. Well I say only ITV and that's not strictly true because the missus could stick her nose in and cause an upset.
Here we have two of Europe's most illustrious and successful clubs going head to head and Milan find themselves in the curious position of being second favourites on home soil.
That doesn't entice you?
Maybe Barcelona's name is going before them. Milan have only been beaten once this season at home and let in only seven goals in their fourteen games.
Milan will put out a blanket defence tonight no doubt about that and rely on Imbrahimovic to provide a goal from a breakaway so betting on a low goal tally makes sense.
But how can you look past Barcelona not just for this tie but for the tournament as well?
Barring a serious injury Lionel Messi is going to be the greatest player ever to have graced the game and he is playing in exulted company.
Iniesta, Xavi and Fabregas are also some of the worlds best players and when Barcelona play well it is mesmerising and enthralling football.
Barcelona are the best team I have ever seen play the game and they make a laughing stock of route one football and 6'6" giants playing the game. They have turned football thinking on its head.
Of course it helps that schoolkids in spain are allowed to start studying and playing the game from a very early age whereas our dinosaur system let's gypsy kids scrounge off the state for a living and those who want to play football are restricted to three hours or whatever it is a week "PE".
No wonder we continually put in poor performances when pitted against the worlds best.
Barcelona could crush any resistance if they bring their A game to town and let's hope they do and make it a game to remember.
