    • 75' Abate also looking to move down the right to hepl Emanuelson now. The crowd getting louder and louder with their boos for Milan.
    • 74' Emanuelson again using his trickery to beat Cavanda. He has looked pretty decent every time he gets the ball this evening.
    • 73' Since his classy volley to score Lazio's third goal this evening Klose has not been too busy. Milan still trying to make something of this.

    • 63' Hernanes tries to stride forward into the Milan box but is dispossessed.

    • 61' Emanuelson is having an impact on the right-hand side with his whipping left-footed crosses and free-kicks. Is there still a bit of hope for Milan?
    • 60 GOALLLL MILAN!!! 3-1 Nigel de Jong slides on the edge of the six yard area to connect to the Emanuelson cross from the right-hand side and put it past the keeper. The ball was driven low and bobbled across the box. A number of players tried to get on the end of it but De Jong was in the right place at the right time.

    • 52' CHANCE FOR MILAN!! Emanuelson gets on the end of a cross and fires a header to the right of the goal. More positive for Milan. They have got to push now. Nothing to lose.
    • 51' Pato scored three times in six meetings with Lazio. His last Serie A goal was in November 2011.
    • 50' SUB FOR MILAN Pato is on for Nocerino.
    • 49' GOALLLLLL LAZIO!!! 3-0 It's Klose, one of the first times he has touched the ball. The ball is floated into the box and he hits a delicate right-footed volley to the left of the keeper. Bonera was caught ball watching and allowed Klose to peel off and score.
    • 47' The crowd at the Stadio Olimpico are still up for this one and are in full voice again. Are there more goals for Lazio or can Milan get back in this? Let me know on the Twitter link below.
    • 46' And we are underway again. Urby Emanuelson is on for Boateng. Pato is still on the bench for AC Milan.
    • - @Tonks1984 and @gusrose14 keep your Tweets coming in. What did you think of the Candreva thunderbolt?
    • - Let me know what you think so far on Twitter. @James_Bass86 . Candreva's goal was a thing of beauty. Seen anything better this season?
    • 45' HALF TIME Lazio 2 - 0 AC Milan. That half went quickly and I bet Allegri can't wait to get his players into the dressing room for a few stern words. Lazio have been clinical in the first half.
    • 43' Lazio have only had two clear-cut chances this half and have buried both of them. They are on the counter attack again.
    • 41' Klose now involved in a challenge with Bonera in the middle of the pitch and gets penalised. Didn't look too bad from here. 50/50 challenge in the air.
    • 40' Hernanes strikes a shot from 20 yards out into Amelia's gloves.
    • 39' Klose gets clattered by Bonera in the middle of the pitch. AC Milan definitely frustrated and need to bounce back quickly before this fame gets away from them.
    • 38' GOAAAAALLL LAZIO!!! 2-0 IT'S A WONDER GOAL!!! Candreva hits an unbelievable strike 25 yards out into the top left-hand corner. It's swerving, dipping, moving. Absolutely incredible strike right there. 2-0 Lazio.
    • 36' Klose and Bonera have a tussle on the far side of the pitch in the AC Milan area. Yepes comes over to get involved. He better watch himself as he still has a fair bit of this match to go on a yellow card.
    • 35' Candreva wins the ball on the half-way line and drives down the right but his touch is too heavy as it goes out for a throw.
    • 34' YELLOW CARD MILAN Yepes gets a caution from the referee for a challenge on Klose earlier in the move.
    • 33' Lazio are pushing forward with that man Hernanes at the centre of the attack. Candreva drills a cross in from the right and it's cleared by Yepes.
    • 32' Antonini does well on the left-hand side. He crosses it in and it goes behind for a corner. The resulting corner goes straight across the Lazio box with the keeper flapping helplessly at the ball.
    • 31' AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has been under fire in the lead up to today's match but AC's Vice President professed earlier this week he has the "greatest faith" in his manager.
    • 29' Milan lost to Inter 0-1 at home two weeks back. The team's confidence cannot be great at the moment. If El Shaarawy continues to create chances like the one earlier they will feel they can get something out of this one.
    • 27' The play has calmed down a bit now after those frantic few minutes. Lulic tries to control the ball in his own half but fails miserably letting the ball out for a throw.
    • 26' Hernanes has now got five goals this season and three assists. Tonight he will be looking for even more.
    • 25' CHANCE FOR AC MILAN!!! El Shaarawy takes the ball round the keeper and hits the shot. It was going in but Dias dives in front of the ball to push it out for a corner, which comes to nothing. Great goal saving challenge there.
    • 24' GOAAAAALLL!!! LAZIO 1-0! Hernanes picks the ball up in the AC Milan area and does some trickery on Bonera, who can only dive in front of his shot to take it over Amelia. Lovely skill in the lead up to the shot.
    • 22' Fancy getting involved tonight? Let me know on Twitter @James_Bass86. Let me know your predictions.
    • 21' Nocerino takes a shot from outside the area but his right-footed effort goes wide to the goalkeeper's left-hand side.
    • 20' El Shaarawy is the target man again. The long ball is the weapon of choice at the moment but the quick surface again takes it away from the youngster.
    • 18' AC Milan have a corner after Pazzini plucks a through ball out of the air. He drives the shot at a defender for the corner, which is cleared by Lazio.
    • 17' Mauri is already looking for Klose with the through ball. We can expect to see a lot of that tonight as those two link up.
    • 15' AC Milan under pressure. A clearance from Amelia goes into touch and invites pressure from Lazio. A cross from Lazio nearly hits Boateng on the hand but the referee is having none of it.
    • 14' Klose will be one to watch this evening for Lazio. He scored three goals in two games for Germany recently and is in strong form. He has already scored five this season in Serie A.
    • 13' Konko takes a long shot, ambitious effort. AC Milan now on the attack with El Shaarawy who just goes out of play when trying to pull the ball back onto the Lazio penalty spot.
    • 11' Lazio manager Vladimir Pektovic is pacing down the sidelines already. It's going to be a long night for him it seems.
    • 10' YELLOW CARD LAZIO Dias is given a yellow just a minute later to even things out.
    • 9' YELLOW CARD AC MILAN Nocerino is given a yellow after a strong tackle.
    • 8' Hernanes already looking lively for Lazio. He wins a free-kick in the middle of Milan's half.
    • 6' The crowd here at the Stadio Olimpico are in full voice tonight. Lazio surely believe a win at home against AC Milan is not out of their reach?
    • 5' Lazio have won five and lost two games this season. Their last victory was against Pescara where they won 3-0.
    • 4' CHANCE AC MILAN!! De Jong picks the ball up in the Lazio half and drills a shot just wide of the left post.
    • 3' If you want to get involved tonight then you can via Twitter. James_Bass86.
    • 2' AC Milan are pushing forward and the ball nearly falls to El Shaarawy. AC Milan have scored seven and conceded seven this season. El Shaarawy will be looking to help get their goal count up tonight.
    • 1' And we are off. Lazio get us underway in tonight's Serie A clash. AC Milan will be looking for a win here to get what has been a tough start to the season. AC are currently 11th with 7 points while Lazio are third with 15 points.

  1. A thrilling night, bright minutes and glorious triumph­ for the Eternal City sky Blues. Congratulations all­ fans. Hadn't Lazio done Milan a favor with their­ out of place withdrawal, they could't have opened­ our goal twice. We would have added to our goals if our­ courage hadn't dried up.

    From Amir, on Sun 21 Oct 18:39
  2. only Klose !

    From Ali, on Sun 21 Oct 4:53
  3. Feels bad with allegri thanks to their stupid­ management that want to win the title by sell their­ star players really mission impossible...

    From Anonymous, on Sun 21 Oct 2:53
  4. bye bye allegri!!

    From , on Sat 20 Oct 22:20
  5. Milan is going to relegation this year because of their­ stupid management decision to sell all the experienced­ players. We now have a bunch of hopeless players with­ no focus and no determination. Breaking all our­ negative records. Shame on the management. I am leaving­ for now.I might come back as a fan any season you­ decide to be serious. Bye. Idiots!,

    From Nelly, on Sat 20 Oct 21:04
  6. #$%$ milan

    From GT, on Sat 20 Oct 20:53
  7. Forza Candreva. We are looking forward to the next­ goals. Don't grant AC Milan break to breath,­ don't retreat at all, victory is with us.

    From Amir, on Sat 20 Oct 20:34
  8. Wow!!! Candreva!! 2-0

    From Joseph, on Sat 20 Oct 20:29
  9. Bravo Hernanes. We fans are happy for having such­ useful footballers in our club. Hero Lazio, go on like­ this, victory is near.

    From Amir, on Sat 20 Oct 20:25
  10. Forza Lazio! forget Milan's bad results and what­ the press have written. you will manage to beat the­ rival and cause a happy thriller for fans this night if­ you first overcom your mental pressure and play with­ resolution and high spirit. Dejan's prediction can­ come true in case the players only focus on football­ not fuss.

    From Amir, on Sat 20 Oct 20:20
  11. FORZA LAZIO!!! Final result 3:1

    From Dejan, on Sat 20 Oct 19:55
  12. Andiamooo ragazzi!!

  14. FORZA LAZIO!!! Final results, 3:1!

    From Dejan, on Sat 20 Oct 11:31
  15. If Lazio are tricked into AC Milan's terrible­ position and poor display, loss is sure. Win is not out­ of reach if Lazio only concentrate on showing a­ flowing, firm play and don't be tangled in emotion­ and stress.
