    That's what makes that tackle brilliant.

    I think he first hit Messi and then got the ball so it was a penalty.

    but the referee had only to decide what he saw. it seemed to me like abate kinda disturbed his view so he can only assume wether nesta hit the ball and you can clearly see that the ball are moving sideways. so correct decition.

    though that 'brilliant tackle and lead the defence' talk is bullshit. dani alves has made tons of those goalsaving tackles but nobody gives him the credit. messi got many times easily away from him (the goal, the yellow card.etc) still a much better game that against lazio when he was really reallly awful (but also made one great tackle) it seems as he's lacking consistency.

    (i don't want to take nothing away from him. living legend and one of the best defenders of our era)

    The game against Lazio was the first game back, and was the worst i've seen him play so i wouldn't read much into that he is very consistent

    Nope. Even Messi wasn't looking for a penalty, he knew he'd been bettered.

    Don't know how you can read Messi's mind but I think he was frustrated because penalty hasn't been awarded after Nesta kicked him.
    And I wouldn't exactly say that Nesta bettered Messi after the latter mashed Milan's defense along with Nesta to set up Pedro. Or earned that FK on Nesta again from which Villa scored.
    Nesta is good but let's not go crazy.

    yup. he was frustrated he didn't shoot earlier. he wanted to get the real open look, but it gave Nesta time to cockslap him quite magnificently.

    Except he clearly makes contact with the ball before the player, making it a fantastic tackle, which isn't a penalty in any game in any league.

    Kicked him. Wise up

    I'm sure Real Madrid would find a way to get a penalty for that. I mean they got a penalty for a foul outside the area!

    For your benefit Bojan, here is slowed down footage of the tackle (go to 30 seconds).

    There was certainly a contact before he touched the ball.
