Barcelona have lodged an official complaint with Uefa about the state of the pitch at San Siro in Wednesday's 0-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg draw with Milan.

Players continually slipped on the surface and chunks of turf came loose at regular intervals as the Serie A side frustrated the holders ahead of Tuesday's return leg at the Nou Camp.

"[Barcelona] passed the matter over to Uefa delegate Mikalai Varabyov at the post-match meeting," the Spanish club said in a statement yesterday.
