    Time:90'
    • AC Milan
    • Parma
    • 90+2 The ref puts Parma out of his misery and it is 4-0. A statement of intent from Milan.
    • 90+1 Two minutes added time are signalled but it will be more with Nesta still down in his own area... No he's up now. Phew.
    • 90' Nesta, who is a bit of a crock these days, is down in some pain. Oh no.
    • 89' Parma have a free-kick on the edge of the box... Candreva sends it into the wall.
    • 88' Aimless ball upfield by Candreva that Nesta clears. Milan keep it at the back.
    • 87' Pato with a great flick to send Flamini away but good defending from Gobbi to intervene.
    • 85' PARMA SUB: Gallopa on for Dzemaili.
    • 84' Pato has a pop but well wide.
    • 83' Both sides are going through the motions now, unsurprising really. This win would put Milan six clear of Napoli, although they play Roma tonight.
    • 81' Antonini is still down... Not sure what happened.
    • 80' Milan clear and Angelo shoots but miles over. Antonini is down holding his face after an off-the-ball incident.
    • 79' Delay on this corner due to some pushing and shoving. The ref has a word with players on both sides.
    • 78' Good cross from the Parma right that Amauri attacks, Nesta flies in and almost clears but Amauri bullies him into a mistake. It's wide for a corner.
    • 77' Flamini is just offside as he runs in to try flick it over Mirante.
    • 75' Candreva finds Amauri on the left, low inside for the Boj but his shot is blocked.
    • 74' Long-range shot from Bojinov but easy for Abiatti.
    • 73' Milan are just sitting back and letting Parma have a go, knowing full well they'll tear them a new mouth on the break.
    • 71' Milan clear to touch. Parma have a throw on their left.
    • 70' Parma have a corner on the right, won by Angelo.
    • 69' PARMA SUB: Bojinov on for Giovinco.
    • 68' PARMA SUB: Angelo is on for Crespo.
    • 67' MILAN SUB: Ibra is rested for Pato, who comes on to roars of approval.
    • 65' FOUR! Robinho again! Two goals in four minutes for Andy Peters. This is silly. Cassano with the assist, spinning away and and nutmegging Paci before sliding Cassano in on the left, the Brazilian smacking a low finish past the keeper.
    • 64' Cassano almost sends Ibra clean through, Milan rampant.
    • 63' ALMOST FOUR! Ibra with a great run down the right and he cuts it across goal but Robinho mis-kicks it. Actually it was a super slide tackle from Zaccardo, the ball coming off his foot and on to Robinho's heel.
    • 62' MILAN SUB: Flamini is on for Gattuso. Job done here at the San Siro.
    • 61' Robinho! His first touch and it's 3-0! Cassano with a wicked assist, slicing the defence open with a wondrous pass that Ibra steps over, and this Milan team are frightening. Spurs beware.
    • 60' Dzemaili with a superb effort from range that Abiatti keeps out with a spectacular flying save!
    • 59' This is Parma's best spell so far as they pass it around fairly confidently.
    • 58' MILAN SUB: Seedorf comes off for Robinho.
    • 57' Parma come forward through Giovinco, who is tackled by Seedorf but wins it back only for his shot to go well over.
    • 56' Oddo on the right but his low ball inside is dreadful and Valiani clears.
    • 55' Free-kick now to Parma but Milan clear their lines.
    • 54' Thiaho Silva goes down holding his head after a clash with Crespo.
    • 53' The corner drops to Valiani who sends a weak effort well wide.
    • 52' Parma get a corner on the right. They aren't even close to being at the races today.
    • 51' How do Milan not score? Ibra's free-kick takes a massive deflection, hits someone on the face, drops to Van Bommel whose drilled shot whacks Cassano before spinning wide to Seedorf, who blasts over.
    • 50' Free-kick to Milan 25 yards out which Ibra will take then... A delay as Dzemaili eventually gets up.
    • 49' Milan attack again, Cassano to Ibra on the left, he cuts inside and is chopped down crudely by Dzemaili.
    • 48' More swashbuckling play from Milan but Zaccardo hooks it away from Seedorf.
    • 47' Milan on the offensive from the start but are unable to create an opening despite two promising attacks.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1 One minute added time being played and, as Merkel comes close to meeting a low ball from Oddo, Milan take a deserved 2-0 lead into the break.
    • 45' Candreva takes it, opting to shoot but sending it a couple of yards wide. Well, Abiatti was totally fooled by the outswing and wouldn't have got near it.
    • 44' Gattuso with a foul on Dzemaili, free-kick 35 yards out...
    • 43' Ibra almost played in by Oddo but just a little heavy for him.
    • 42' Silva intercepts a cross and almost sends the header looping over Abiatti for an own goal but the keeper readjusts to claim.
    • 41' Milan play it short and in the end it goes back to the defence. Disappointing.
    • 40' Dzemaili brings down Ibra around 30 yards out and this time it is a foul.
    • 39' Ibra goes on a mazy dribble that almost takes him into the box but he is challenged by Zaccardo and Parma clear through Lucarelli. Milan think it was a foul but it was shoulder to shoulder and if anything Ibra pushed him.
    • 38' Ibra tries a clever reverse header from Cassano's ball with his back to goal, but the keeper saves and the flag was up. He was onside though!
    • 37' Good play by Candreva but his low drive takes a deflection and fizzes wide of the post and of Abiatti's dive to keep it in. Oh, goal kick in the end. Odd, could have sworn that hit a leg.
    • 36' Good ball Oddo and Ibra indeed meets it but he was fouling his marker and puts the header wide anyway.
    • 35' Milan have a free-kick to the right of the box. This time Ibra opts to place himself as a target for Oddo's ball...
    • 33' Crespo almost meets Zaccardo's cross but flicked away for a corner.
    • 32' Cassano tries a cross which is blocked. Now Ibra takes it on his chest on the right and fires in a super drive but batted behind by Mirante!
    • 31' Taken short to Merkel and back to Seedorf but cleared.
    • 30' Ibra with a super knock down to Cassano who unleashes a wicked drive that Mirante tips over! More great football from the Rossoneri.
    • 29' Thiago Silva knocks it behind for Parma corner. Milan clear and then win a free-kick for some shoving.
    • 28' Merkel misses a sitter! Seedorf sets him up and from eight yards with the goal at his mercy the Kakakh-born German youth player misses the ball completely!
    • 28' Zaccardo with a super run and cross down the right and Crespo meets it with a header but the direction is wrong, well wide.
    • 27' Powerful header away from Nesta after Giovinco, Amauri and Dzemaili combined.
    • 26' Ibra gets his through ball wrong this time, with Cassano set to move wide and not inside.
    • 25' Crespo almost races clear but Abiatti is wise to the long ball and claims.
    • 24' Abiatti hoofs clear under pressure from Amauri.
    • 22' Parma putting some pressure on Milan now but the Rossoneri are able to stand reasonably firm.
    • 21' Free kick to Milan some way out but Ibra blasts it yards over.
    • 20' Amauri almost latches on to a long ball but it skips away from him for a Milan goal kick. He is trying to rebuild his career after struggling at Juve.
    • 19' Milan are toying with Parma now, but after more Real Madrid style showboating Ibra's header backwards lands to a Parma player.
    • 18' Ibra flicks it wide to Cassano but Candreva back defending blocks. Corner.
    • 17' Well. That was a lovely goal from Milan, who now have 42 Serie A goals in 25 matches. And don't bet against more!
    • 16' WHAT A GOAL! CASSANO! Champagne football from Milan, glorious one-touch passing and a give-and-go with Gattuso with the flicked pass to put Cassano in and he slides a first-time finish into the bottom right. Lovely football and Rossoneri boss Max Allegri is laughing.
    • 15' Mirante is able to claim this time as Cassano tries to send Seedorf through for a second.
    • 14' Superb run by Giovinco cutting in from the left at searing pace before knocking it in for CANDREVA but his low cross-shot is held by Abiatti!
    • 12' Milan are sitting back, unsurprisingly, content to defend this one-goal lead and look for the break.
    • 10' Giovinco lives after that and, remarkably, Van Bommel is not booked. If he was a dog he'd be castrated.
    • 9' OW! Giovinco is left clutching his lower leg after a scything tackle from, yup, you guessed it, Mark van Bommel.
    • 8' I look at Ibra's pass again and I cry a tiny bit. Merkel's cross was blocked into his path and he clipped an instinctive volleyed through ball, while looking the other way, with perfect weight to send Seedorf in.
    • 7' GOAL MILAN! Seedorf rounds Mirante and just about slides it into the empty net while on his backside, a great ball by Ibra to put him in.
    • 6' A lull after that fairly frantic start as former Italy right-back Christian Zaccardo gets down the right for Parma but fails to keep it in.
    • 4' Parma retain possession after that run, coming forward down the right again but it spins off Candreva for a throw to Milan.
    • 3' Great run by Candreva for Parma but the cross isn't and Milan clear.
    • 2' Ibra with a trademark backheel karate kick but Cassano is offside. Cracking start from Milan.
    • 1' Gattuso with a super ball to Seedorf who wriggles away and smacks a vicious drive on goal but tipped away by Mirante!!
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 16:55 League leaders Milan are starting with Ibrahimovic and Cassano up front, with the luxury of Alex Pato and Robinho on the bench. Crumbs!
    • 16:50 Welcome to our live coverage of Milan's Serie A clash with Parma - kick off at 5pm UK time!
  • Summary
