    • AC Milan
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+5 Full Time
    • 90+3 GOAL FOR REAL MADRID! 2-2! Pedro Leon rescues Madrid from the jaws of defeat!
    • 90' A whopping five minutes of injury time to be played at the San Siro
    • 87' concern for Milan and Pirlo as the midfielder is struck in the face but he is content to soldier on with only minutes remaining.
    • 85' Ronaldo attempts an ambitious volley from 25 yards but Abbiati gobbles it up and treats the cameraman to an exuberant expression of satisfaction.
    • 83' Final substitution for AC Milan. Gattuso receives a standing ovation as he leaves field of play to be replaced by Clarence Seedorf.
    • 82' More evidence of frustration as Madrid resort to petty fouls.
    • 80' Attacking substitution from Jose Mourinho as centre back Pepe is replaced by winger Pedro Leon.
    • 79' Signs of frustration creeping into Madrid's game as Ibrahimovic is floored by Sergio Ramos to earn himself a booking.
    • 77' GOAL FOR AC MILAN! 2-1! Inzaghi the supersub with his second of the game. Again Casillas' judgment will be brough into question as the AC Milan slips the ball past him.
    • 75' Inzaghi wins a free kick that Pirlo delivers into the box to no avail.
    • 73' Play is brought to a halt to allow Thiago Silva to receive treatment after a heavy fall.
    • 72' Madrid to make a change of their own. Higuain is withdrawn and Karim Benzema is the man to take his place.
    • 71' A second change for the home side. Pato making way for Massimo Ambrosini.
    • 70' Inzaghi's goal is the first that Madrid have conceded in this season's competition.
    • 69' Gattuso receives the inevitable booking having tempted Mr Webb with a series of rash challenges.
    • 68' Now where did that come from? The serial poacher strikes again to capitalise on a rare mistake from the Madrid goalkeeper who draws level with Marco Van Basten on Milan's all-time goalscoring list.
    • 67' GOAL FOR AC MILAN! 1-1! Inzaghi does the damage with a simple header after Casillas had spilled a cross/shot from Ibrahimovic.
    • 65' Madrid content to keep possession for now.
    • 63' Embarrassing moment for Pato who is found guilty of a foul throw. Schoolboy stuff at the San Siro.
    • 61' Abate flirting with danger after another foul having previously been booked. On eggshells from here on in.
    • 59' Inzaghi's first involvement is to be nutmegged by Marcelo and then shove Alonso to the ground. Not the impact the Rossoneri were hoping for.
    • 58' First substitution of the evening. Ronaldinho the man withdrawn for AC Milan with Filippo Inzaghi introduced.
    • 56' Howard Webb called into action again. Ibrahimovic the guilty party this time.
    • 55' Abate goes in the book for a challenge on Ronaldo.
    • 54' Perfectly executed sliding challenge from Gattuso. They could have done with the Italian during the recent strike...he has been putting out fires all over the place.
    • 53' No success there as the set piece sails into Casillas's grateful arms.
    • 52' Pirlo sends over the resulting free kick and Milan win a corner which Ronaldinho will take.
    • 50' Gattuso finds himself on the end of a heavy challenge as Khedira is penalised for a high foot.
    • 48' Madrid get themselves in a real mess as Pepe nonchalantly backheels a clearance and Khedira is forced into evasive action to clear the danger.
    • 47' Early pop shot from Ronaldo looks destined for the far corner but Abbiati is on his toes and makes a good save.
    • 46' Second half kick off. Madrid get us underway.
    • 45+2 Howard Webb blows for half time. Madrid just about deserving of their lead.
    • 45' Into first half injury time. Milan with no time to hit back from that late blow.
    • 44' GOAL FOR REAL MADRID! 0-1! Higuain with a sucker punch on the brink of half time. Di Maria plays in the Argentine who stays composed to beat Abbiati from close range.
    • 43' Pato has the ball in the net but the offside flag had long been raised.
    • 42' Ronaldinho displaying his defensive skills with a well timed tackle.
    • 40' Abate stays down after seemingly being trodden on by Ronaldo. Benefit of the doubt must go to the offender, looked an accident.
    • 38' Awkward moment for Abbiati who mishandles Alonso's long range effort but has time to recover the loose ball.
    • 37' One or two of the players losing their footing as the Milan mist descends.
    • 36' Ibrahimovic misses a glaring opportunity after Ronaldinho's through ball had Casillas stranded in no mans land. The Swede's miscues the lob.
    • 35' Composed defending from Ramos and di Maria who combine to ease the pressure on Madrid. Great football.
    • 33' Ozil drifts into a dangerous position but Zambrotta has the experience to deal with the threat of the German and earn a goal kick to boot.
    • 32' Speculative effort from Sami Khedira from 35 yards that whistles past the post.
    • 31' Higuain lines up a shot after evading the challenges of Nesta and Gattuso but slips at the vital moment and skews his effort wide.
    • 29' Gattuso calls for the physio but it is nothing a quick blast of the magic spray can't fix. The Italian gladiator makes a swift return to the battlefield.
    • 28' Dizzying display of skill from Ronaldo who executes a flurry of stepovers but three Milan defenders snuff out the danger.
    • 27' First caution of the evening goes the way of Boateng for sliding recklessly on Di Maria.
    • 26' Milan finally getting a grip on play. Ronaldinho looking increasingly dangerous.
    • 24' Fortunately Mr Webb has seen the Ronaldo show all too many times before and sees stright through the act.
    • 23' Handbags at the San Siro with Ronaldo at the centre for it. Abate swings an arm across the chest of the Portugal forward who drops clutching his face. Shameless simulation and Milan are far from happy.
    • 22' Right on cue the big Swede then springs the offside trap to latch on to Kevin Prince Boateng's through pass before drawing a smart save from Casillas.
    • 21' Zlatan Ibrahimovic is caught offside for the third time already. He must have been taking tips from Filippo Inzaghi since joining thr Rossoneri in the summer.
    • 20' Corner kick causes havoc in the Madrid box but Mr Webb comes to their rescue by awarding them a free kick.
    • 19' Superb defending from Andrea Pirlo clearing off his own goal line not once but twice in the space of 10 seconds to deny Madrid.
    • 18' Cynical foul from Pepe on the rampaging Pato as Milan look to hit Madrid on the break. Mr Webb content to keep his cards in his pocket for now.
    • 17' Ronaldo lines up the free kick and shoots regardless of the tight angle but a Milan body is in the way of it.
    • 16' More rough stuff from Gattuso as he bodychecks Marcelo.
    • 15' Goal flash from tonight's other Group G match. Auxerre 1-0 Ajax (Sammarit)
    • 14' Madrid are taking the game to their opponents in the opening exchanges.
    • 13' Ronaldo is adjudged to have used too much muscle in a challenge with Ignazio Abate and English referee Howard Webb awards a Milan free kick.
    • 12' Glorious opportunity squandered by Madrid! Angel Di Maria races clear of Zambrotta but opts to check back on to his favoured left foot and scuffs the shot wide with the goal gaping.
    • 11' Alonso has Abbiati scrambling across goal with an expertly timed volley that just drifts wide.
    • 10' AC Milan carve out their first meaningful chance as Ronaldinho connects with a 20 yard half volley that brings a decent save out of Iker Casillas.
    • 9' Alonso swings the free kick to the far post and Pepe has a free header which he smashes into the floor and over the crossbar.
    • 8' Ivan Gattuso gets outwitted by Ronaldo and then Mesut Ozil before resorting to thuggery and concedes the free kick.
    • 7' Delicate through ball from Ronaldinho looking for Pato is acrobatically intercepted by Ricardo Carvalho. Superb defending.
    • 6' Jose Mourinho looking very comfortable and relaxed sat in the dugout. Almost like he never left.
    • 5' Pato looks to use his pace to run beyond the Madrid defence but is impressively outsprinted by Pepe who sweeps up effortlessly.
    • 4' First chance of the game goes Madrid's way as Gonzalo Higuain draws a good save from Christian Abbiati with a curling right foot shot from the edge of the penalty area.
    • 3' Peculiar start to the game for Real Madrid and Xabi Alonso in particular as his attempted clearance is sliced horribly and loops up and into the arms of Iker Casillas.
    • 2' Tonight's tie pits the two most successful European teams against one another with 16 titles between them.
    • 1' Kick off at the San Siro. Our hosts AC Milan get the game underway kicking from left to right.
    • 19:40 In their last domestic outings, AC Milan suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Juventus while Madrid ran out 3-1 victors away to Hercules.
    • 19:35 This is Madrid coach Jose Mourinho's first return to the San Siro since stepping down from the Inter hotseat and moving to Spain in the summer.
    • 19:30 Madrid have a poor record at San Siro, however, having recorded ten defeats and three draws against the two tenants, Internazionale and AC.
    • 19:25 A repeat result tonight would ensure Madrid's progress from Group G with a perfect record. Should Auxerre defeat Ajax, a draw would suffice for the Spanish league leaders.
    • 19:20 In their last encounter on Matchday 3 two weeks ago, Madrid ran out 2-0 victors with first half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil.
    • 19:15 The two teams have met on 14 previous occasions winning six each and drawing the remaining two.
    • 19:10 Real Madrid: 1-Iker Casillas; 4-Sergio Ramos, 2-Ricardo Carvalho, 3-Pepe, 12-Marcelo; 24-Sami Khedira, 14-Xabi Alonso; 22-Angel Di Maria, 23-Mesut Ozil, 7-Cristiano Ronaldo; 20-Gonzalo Higuain.
