In the second half, the City improved and result of this came the goal Aguero, a superb assistance Silva. Self expulsion of Clichy, who made more than enough merit to go to the street, put back the stage for players that were reserved, perhaps for fear of a lethal against as 1-2. Finally, another gift, this Zabaleta, put Messi in tray 1-2, but Leo missed the penalty and the rebound into the empty net.
