    Time:90'
    • AC Milan
    • Chievo
    • 81' This is better from Milan, who seem to have regained their composure and are knocking it about nicely in the Chievo half.
    • 80' Ibra with a super knock-down and RONALDINHO WITH THE FINISH but a good save from Sorrentino.
    • 78' MILAN SUB: A bit of energy introduced as Seedorf makes way for Boateng.
    • 77' Clever from Dinho to win a foul off Fernandes in midfield, slowing it down as Chievo take control of the game.
    • 75' Milan are on the rack here. This is great from Chievo, they seemed all at sea 15 minutes ago.
    • 74' Pelissier has it in the back of the net but the flag was up. Well off.
    • 73' Bonera under pressure and Thereau finds Fernandes who fires wide! Chievo!
    • 72' Chievo are up for this now. Still don't know who scored that goal - may have been Antonini. There were a load of bodies at the near post.
    • 71' Actually scratch that, looks like an O.G. Ibra I think got the touch.
    • 70' GOAL CHIEVO! Cesar with the header from a corner, like the last chance, but on target this time! Near post flick this time.
    • 69' MILAN SUB: Robinho is on for Pato.
    • 68' Good ball in and Cesar flies in but he heads down and wide! Should have scored!
    • 67' Corner to Chievo with Nesta covering.
    • 66' Milan counter as Seedorf drives down the left like a vintage Aston Martin, Antonini on the overlap and Ronaldinho finds him and it's three! No! Flag up!
    • 64' Milan are pretty much in control right now. Chievo look a bit depressed now.
    • 63' Siiva is taken away on a stretcher. That looks serious.
    • 62' Ibra takes Andreolli out, unintentionally as he went for the ball, and the Swede calls for the medics with Silva also still down on the sidlines...
    • 61' MILAN SUB: Bonera is on for Silva, who twisted his knee.
    • 59' Chievo on the offensive but Pato brings it clear, Dinho with a lovely pass to Ibra who knocks it in for Pato but the full-back gets back to put it behind for a corner.
    • 58' Pirlo plays a super ball over the top but Antonini - of all people - can't win the header. Milan attacking with some intent!
    • 57' Constant is booked after almost having the shirt of Dinho after he dribbled clear on the break.
    • 56' Thereau picks the ball up at some distance and he smashes a superb shot that Abiatti tips over!
    • 55' Ibrahimovic latches on to Ronaldinho's pass, rolled through Rigoni's legs, the Swede is in but he drills it low at the keeper.
    • 54' Constant with more good play on the left but Zambrotta blocks his cross. Then Chievo win a corner as Constant comes down the right, Silva blocking. Abiatti claims.
    • 53' Ronaldinho on the rampage but his pass to Ibra is blocked. Milan retain possession.
    • 52' Chievo break and Pelissier is in but he fires wide!
    • 51' Great tackle from Andreolli on Pato who was in!
    • 50' Booking for Cesar after he takes Pato out.
    • 49' Fernandes is getting involved, first almost putting Thereau in - Silva clearing - and then bursting forward but blocked off by Nesta.
    • 48' Fernandes threads it in for Thereau but Zambrotta is well placed to intercept. Throw.
    • 47' Ibra takes a crack on the head and receives some treatment.
    • 46' Second half underway.
    • 46' CHIEVO DOUBLE SUB: Gelson Fernandes - remember him? - on for Bentivoglio, and Thereau also on, surprisingly for Granoche, who was a threat. Brave.
    • 45+1 Half-time and Milan are two goals to the good, Pato in brilliant form with both goals and he could have had a hat-trick.
    • 45' Good ball from Zambrotta but headed behind for a corner.
    • 44' GREAT SAVE SORRENTINO! Pato was on for the hat-trick, racing forward all alone and dribbling past two before curling a shot from the edge of the box. Corner.
    • 43' Great run from Dinho again as he feeds Ibra, who tries a shot but it's blocked. Seedorf was free but Ibra's annoyance with him makes me think he didn't call.
    • 42' Milan counter from that, they have men over as Ronaldinho races away and he slides Ibra in on the left, Pato is free but Ibra tries the long - weak, straight at the keeper.
    • 41' Chievo are still pressing Milan as Constant plays a good ball in which Abiatti punches away.
    • 40' Zambrotta knocks the ball out for a throw. Milan don't need to do much more than stay organised for now.
    • 38' Milan ride that five-minute spell of Chievo pressure relatively easily.
    • 36' Nesta clears the corner, Constant plays it back in but Silva heads away.
    • 35' Good defending by Zambrotta to block the cross for a corner.
    • 34' Nesta finds Seedorf, now Pato but he's crowded out for once.
    • 32' Bentivoglio with a really late challenge on Silva, booking.
    • 31' Ibra won and took a free-kick quickly and slid Pato in, he raced away from a wooden defence and smashed it over Sorrentino into the net.
    • 30' 2-0 MILAN! Pato again!
    • 29' Side footed by Granoche from the edge of the box but straight at Abiatti.
    • 28' SUPER DOUBLE SAVE BY ABIATTI! Double chance for Constant on the left, played in by some excellent build-up play, but Abiatti with two low saves from the Frenchman.
    • 27' A good spell of pressure by Chievo forces Milan deep back into their own half.
    • 26' Granoche is given a yellow for a late one on Pirlo.
    • 25' Ronaldinho with a one-two with Ibra AND SEEDORF but blocked by Frey!
    • 24' Constant on the ball, good cross into the box and GRANOCHE WITH THE HEADER but good low save from Abiatti.
    • 23' Gattuso is retrospectively booked for that cynical foul.
    • 22' Chievo counter, Granoche fouled on halfway but play on and driven low and wide by Constant!
    • 21' The crowd gasp as Ronaldinho rolls back the years with a drag back and shimmy in midfield to leave Rigoni for dead. Seedorf almost gets in but nothing comes from it.
    • 20' That got the home fans going and they're in fine song now as Milan boss possession.
    • 18' Ibra spun away from Frey down the left, super cross to the far post and Pato kept his focus to hit a volley into the ground, bouncing across Sorrentino and in at the opposite post! 1-0 Milan, great counter.
    • 17' GOAL MILAN! Pato!
    • 13' Seedorf crosses from the left but Cesar blocks and Mantovani completes.

    • 7' Ibra shows some neat skill but plays the shot wide.
    • 4' Ronaldinho on the right but his cross is easy for the keeper.
    • 2' Milan have started with an exciting front three of Ibra, Pato and Ronaldinho as Pato almost gets in down the right but his low shot is easy for Sorrentino.
