Madrid: Barcelona on Thursday said they had complained to UEFA over the state of the pitch at the San Siro, after their goalless Champions League quarter-final match with AC Milan.
"FC Barcelona has lodged a complaint with UEFA over the state of the pitch at the Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) stadium during the Champions League match," the Catalan giants said on their website.
After Wednesday's match, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola complained about the pitch, saying that "we adapt to everything, we come and we play. But it's a problem for the quality of the occasion. It's difficult when the pitch is in this state".
The match ended 0-0, making the return leg at the Camp Nou next Tuesday finely poised.
