    • Manchester City
    • AC Milan
    • 90' Full time. 5-1 to Manchester City.
    • 88' The cross somehow is not put in by any Milan player.
    • 87' Free kick for Milan on the right for a foul on Pinato by Clichy.
    • 86' Another sub.
    • 84' Pinato comes on.
    • 83' Balotelli attempts to dink a pass forward for Niang, but it's overhit and Caballero claims.
    • 81' 10 minutes left for Milan to save face. They won't be doing it.
    • 80' The substitution was actually Rodwell, Rekik and Leigh on for Navas, Boyata and Zuculini.
    • 79' Saponara heads over at the back post.
    • 77' Navas and Boyata off.
    • 76' The game stays 5-1. Can AC Milan launch an astonishing comeback? No.
    • 71' Mexes clumps Guidetti needlessly hard in midfield, and he's booked.
    • 69' Jovetic is off along with Kolarov, Richards and Guidetti are on.
    • 68' Albertazzi, Mexes and Saponara on for Rami, Muntari and De Sciglio.
    • 66' Jovetic smashes a curler well over the box.
    • 65' The game has largely come to an end, with both sides seemingly bereft of energy and effort.
    • 62' Javi Garcia and Huws on for Fernando and Iheanacho
    • 61' Honda curls his shot against the wall.
    • 59' Essien is fouled on the edge of the box. Free kick for AC Milan.
    • 58' GOAL! AC Milan 1-5 Man City. Jovetic scores. Jovetic spreads the ball left to Sinclair, who returns the ball into the box, and Jovetic dinks the ball up and slams into the near top corner.
    • 57' Caballero claims a cross from the left. I have a suspicion he's better than Joe Hart.
    • 54' Balotelli puts the ball away, but it's offside. Niang pulls a ball back across the box after reaching a cross, but the Italian striker had wondered just a little too far forward.
    • 53' AC Milan have started much better this half than they ended it, when they were a complete mess. Still, just three goals to go.
    • 52' Clubs' social media efforts are just awful.
    • 51' A corner from the right for Honda, and Essien meets the ball well, but Caballero stops easily.
    • 49' Kolarov has a shot from the edge of the box deflected just wide. Another corner for City, but it's cleared.
    • 48' Iheanacho wins a corner on the right wing after AC Milan fail to properly clear a cross on the right.
    • 46' Second half is underway, and as I will be MBMing the Liverpool game, I can guarantee you that you will find the quality dips yet further.
    • HT Subs!
    • HT The match might not restart for another 10 minutes.
    • HT It's absolutely whizzing it down, with strong winds, and so play has been abandoned for 15 minutes, at least.
    • 45' That's half-time. See you in 15 minutes.
    • 42' GOAL! AC Milan 1-4 Man City. Muntari scores. The corner finds Alex deep in the box, and he head across goal, nobody gets a foot to it, Caballero can't reach it in time and Munatri pokes in at the back post.
    • 41' Clichy heads behind a cross at the back post, with Niang lurking.
    • 39' After a few short passes in and around the box, Navas jinks into the box and to the byline, but his fierce shot finds no City player.
    • 37' Zuculini toes an excellent pass forward for Jovetic, who fires in an accurate finish from the edge of the box, but he's clearly offside.
    • 36' Now AC Milan take their time, but De Sciglio's cross is blocked out for a throw by Kolarov.
    • 35' City now kill the game a little, switching the ball between central defence and midfield.
    • 32' An excellent chance for AC Milan. A cross is swung in from the right to the back post, and El Shaarawy gets ahead of his defender and makes Caballero palm the ball behind.
    • 31' Niang chases a ball over the top into the box, and drags a shot wide of goal.
    • 30' Alex attempts to challenge for the inswinging cross, but misses and the corner is out for a goal kick.
    • 29' A terrible clearance from Nastasic gives away a corner on the left.
    • 27' At the other end, Constant over hits a cross.
    • 26' GOAL! AC Milan 0-4 Man City. I reckon Manchester City will win this, if I have to go out on a limb. Oh, hang on. It's 4-0. Iheanacho scores. Jovetic is tackled and the ball bobbles inside for Iheanacho. He weighs up the situation on the edge of the box, and toe-pokes into the corner.
    • 23' GOAL! AC Milan 0-3 Man City. Jovetic switches play to the left of the box, Navas tries an acrobatic volley towards goal, which takes a deflection and wrong-foots the 'keeper, leaving him stranded.
    • 22' Navas' cross is put behind for a corner on the left wing.
    • 21' The cross is curled towards Niang at the near post, but Caballero is able to claim under no pressure. At the other end Zuculini is ruled a fraction offside when he meets a cross in the centre.
    • 20' Clichy clatters El Shaarawy on the left wing, and AC Milan have the chance to cross in from 35 yards.
    • 17' El Shaarawy is inches from a pass inside from the right, and the ball drifts wide of goal.
    • 16' Almost three, as Zuculini chases a scooped ball over the defence but Agazzi claims.
    • 13' GOAL! AC Milan 0-2. Jovetic, after his poor season last year, will hope to kick on from there. Obviously. While I'm wibbling on, Scott Sinclair scores. Clichy gets to the byline on the right wing, clips in a cross that drops to Sinclair, and he fires a shot across the 'keeper into the top corner.
    • 11' GOAL! AC Milan 0-1 Man City. Jovetic scores. More AC possession, and Shaarawy aims a through-ball for Honda, but it's just off target. City win the ball back, spread the ball wide with a pass to Navas on the right. He cushions the ball and finds Jovetic, running into the box, who fires in a low shot at the near post.
    • 10' If the game continues like this then it will be 0-0 forever, and we would all die watching it.
    • 8' Now AC Milan's turn to keep things simple in defence. A long ball to Constant down the left, and his cross to Niang is just cut out.
    • 7' City come forward again but AC force them back. They then play calmly forward - no urgency in the attack at all, as you might expect.
    • 5' Sinclair's pass is intercepted and AC pass the ball patiently in front of the City defence.
    • 3' Navas curls the cross in from the right but AC clear and break down the left. They decide to spread play to the right.
    • 2' El Shaarawy steams down the inside left and tries to pull his cross back across the box, and it's behind for a corner. Alex heads well wide at the back post.
    • 1' We have kick off, it's great.
    • 20:55 Five minutes until kick off. Are you excited? No, me neither.
    • 20:50 You do have to wonder what we're all doing with the potential of the internet at times like this.
