Away goals rule favours away team in second leg?

Extract from today's Daily Telegraph

Arsenal's visit to Milan coincides with an English football fan writing to Uefa to point out an "anomaly" in Champions League rules that favours the team who travel away second.

"While the team playing the first leg of a tie on their opponents' ground has 90 minutes in which to score an away goal," wrote Jim Whitfield in his missive, "their opponents have potentially 120 minutes in which to benefit from the away goals rule; namely, 90 minutes, plus 30 minutes extra-time."


Well thats why they have a draw for the games, and hence the saying "luck of the draw!"
Only if the first half of the tie is Nil Nil. Hence the reason it was brought in, to encourage attacking play.

Try telling Chelsea it gives the advantage in the Away leg.
