    • 90+6' Bojan whips in a cross from the right which is put behind for a corner.
    • 90+5' The injury to Manfredini should add another couple of minutes on here.
    • 90+4' Cazzola bombs down the right but under pressure from Constant goes down in a heap and is told to get up by the official.
    • 90+3' Lengthy treatment now for Manfredini who will be stretchered off. No subs left so it's ten men for the dying seconds for Atalanta.
    • 90+2' Bojan strikes from outside the box. The low drive is held by Consigli.
    • 90+1' Atalanta's time-burning activities have not worked. There will be FIVE minutes added on.
    • 90' Boateng slips Abate through towards the byline out on the right but Biondini is there to concede a corner.
    • 89' Bonera lets fly from 30 yards... it's heading towards Row Z.
    • 88' Manfredini heads clear a Boateng cross from the right.
    • 87' Milan win another corner but it's a poor delivery.
    • 86' It's easily caught by Abbiati but Raimondi impedes him straight after and also gets a yellow.
    • 85' Moralez takes his sweet time with the subsequent corner and is placed into the book.
    • 84' This is a better break from the visitors. They're 4-on-3! Moralez fed the ball by Raimondi inside the box and Abbiati has to tip it over the bar!
    • 83' Great play by Antonini to get free on the left-hand side of the byline just inside the box. He floats a cross in but there's nobody in that specific part of the area.
    • 82' Bojan has a low diagonal cut out and Atalanta break once more. Nothing comes of it.
    • 81' Cigarini off, Riccardo Cazzola on. Also a change for Milan as Kevin Constant replaces Emanuelson.
    • 80' Cigarini is coming off but first he will be booked for time wasting with a slow walk towards the dugout.
    • 79' Boateng moves inside from the right and dummies his marker Bellini before driving over the bar.

    • 75' Offside flag scuppers another big Milan approach into the box before Nocerino has a header caught.
    • 74' Another Milan corner is taken quickly and cleared. Follow-up ball in is headed straight to Consigli by Pazzini.
    • 73' Brivio attempted to return to the action but he is going to be brought off here. Michele Ferri the man to replace him.

    • 71' Bojan enters the fray at the expense of El Shaarawy.
    • 70' Corner cleared, but Antonini will send it in again and it misses both Emanuelson and de Jong by inches - one little touch and that would have been 1-1!
    • 69' Brivio is carried off as Milan win a corner.
    • 68' Brivio is treated for cramp as Milan prepare another change.
    • 66' Lovely lay-off from Denis for Cigarini's goal, by the way. Held things up just inside the box before teeing up the piledriver from the midfielder.
    • 65' Boateng has a strike closed down within seconds of the restart.
    • 64' GOAL! Atalanta lead at the San Siro! And it's thorn in Milan's side Cigarini with a superb low drive into the far corner from 25 yards! 0-1

    • 55' Milan make their first change as Antonio Nocerino replaces Ambrosini, who hasn't recovered fully from a first-half knock.
    • 53' Brivio unleashes a swerving drive which comes awkward to Abbiati, the keeper can only parry but there's no danger on the rebound.
    • 52' Antonini comes onto his right foot for another decent delivery which Manfredini prevents Boateng from reaching (legally).
    • 51' Moralez sends it towards the far post but Abbiati claims easy as you like.

    • 45' Up the other end and Cigarini's cultured ball into the box is collected by Abbiati.
    • 44' El Shaarawy with a good first-time strike on the swivel from 25 yards! Consigli holds and he has to as two red and black shirts were lurking...
    • 43' Consigli claims a long ball into the Atalanta box.
    • 42' El Shaarawy gets the first booking for a cynical shove into the back of Biondini to prevent a breakaway.

    • 38' Raimondi brings down Emanuelson and the visitors' momentum halts.
    • 36' Nothing from the delivery as Milan clear with ease.
    • 35' Atalanta win their first corner.
    • 34' Good even bout this now after the one-sided beginning. Needs a goal though.
    • 33' Good counter by Atalanta but Moralez is unable to thread the final through pass to Cigarini on the left.
    • 31' Ambrosini from 25 yards! Consigli spills but gets away with it!
    • 30' Brivio sends a deep free-kick long into the Milan box but the whistle soon goes for some holding and blocking inside the area.
    • 28' Emanuelson cuts the ball inside from the left to El Shaarawy, who forces a good parry from Consigli! Almost an own goal on the rebound but the keeper stops that too!

    • 26' Moralez now with a strike at goal off-target thanks to Cigarini's decent pass.

    • 24' Denis with space for another strike after a neat turn, but it's scuffed off-target.
    • 23' Great move inside from the left by Moralez for Atalanta but his attempt at a square ball to a team-mate is poor.
    • 22' Another mazy run from Emanuelson sees him feed Pazzini in the box, but the striker is smothered by both centre-backs and cannot get out of it with the ball intact.
    • 21' The away side finally have decent numbers going forward and Denis strikes! Off the post!
    • 20' Milan give away possession and here come Atalanta....
    • 18' Replays show it does appear Emanuelson was clipped, and being just outside the area with the space in front of him at his mercy it seems weird that he'd choose that moment to dive...
    • 17' He does give against Antonini for sliding in on Raimondi to end the pressure.
    • 16' Good run towards the box by Emanuelson after a clever pass by El Shaarawy but the referee has none of it when the Dutchman appears to be brought down by Brivio.
    • 15' Boateng comes into Bellini from behind for a needless foul and free-kick.
    • 14' Milan getting back to total ball control here. Atalanta camped in their own third. The hosts have had two-thirds possession thus far.
    • 12' Raimondi tracks back well to prevent an Antonini centre from the left in the battle of the shirt number 77s.
    • 11' A Bonaventura cross is caught safely by Abbiati.
    • 10' Good outnumbering by the away side to get the ball from de Jong.
    • 9' Atalanta finally take the ball into Milan's half and engage in some rugged battles over loose balls. Milan come out of it with a free-kick.
    • 8' Boateng twists and turns inside the box before going down having apparently caught legs with Raimondi. No penalty given and both players are feeling it.
    • 7' Antonini tries to get to Emanuelson's pass down the left but cannot make it in time to prevent the goal kick.
    • 6' The visitors finally get some touches of the ball but after 20 seconds or so, it's back with Milan.
    • 5' Boateng drives one from outside of the box and though it's safely wide, it's a decent signal of intent after passage upon passage of short passes.
    • 4' Pazzini tries to turn on an Antonini cross from the left but is unable to keep it down.
    • 3' A cross-field pass from Ambrosini doesn't work out but it remains the hosts with the bulk of the ball time.
    • 2' Milan begin promisingly, spraying the ball around with confidence in the early stages.
    • 1' Atalanta kick off the first half in their white change shirts with black shorts.
    • 19:45 The teams are out on the pitch and handshakes exchanged. Can the home side arrest their uncertain start to the new season before the beginning of the Champions League adds another plate to spin? We're about to find out, NEXT!
    • 19:40 Nigel de Jong will make his first start for Milan tonight while Stephan El Shaarawy beats Bojan out for a place in the starting XI. German Denis plays as lone striker for Atalanta tonight with primary support from Maximiliano Moralez.
