    • 67' Good play from Milan as Seedorf picks it up on the left and drills in a low cross but Candreva is back to clear.

    • 58' Ibra stands it far post to Robinho, too high for him and he's offside anyway.
    • 57' Terrible effort by Robinho, put through on the right by Ibra but dragging the shot several yards wide of the far post. Epitomises his Milan start.

    • 45+3 Half time and it's 1-0 to Milan in a game they have dominated.
    • 45+2 Ibra is down holding his throat. That was a brutal intervention from Lucarelli.

    • 45' Ronaldinho tries a trick but loses the ball to Morrone. Parma build again but Marques's cross is straight at Abiatti. One minute added time.
    • 44' Marques on the left puts in a poor ball that Silva clears.
    • 43' Zaccardo with a powerful header to clear Pirlo's corner.

    • 38' Parma have a free-kick on the right which Marques swings in and MORRONE WITH THE HEADER but Abiatti saves and the whistle goes - he was offside.

    • 36' Gattuso rolls around in agony but no foul says the ref as Marques gets the ball on the left. Gattuso is fine.
    • 35' Seedorf plays the ball in for Antonini but it's too high for him.
    • 34' Morrone gives it to Gattuso, the fans groan. Milan can't make anything of it though and Parma are able to clear. Antonini fouls Candreva. He needs to be careful.
    • 33' Lucarelli bombs down the left but Nesta blocks his low cross and Milan clear. Ibra tries to skip into the box but space is too tight and Parma clear. Pirlo plays it long but straight down Mirante's throat.
    • 32' Milan attack again as Robinho cuts through the middle but he gets the pass to Ibra all wrong and Parma clear.
    • 31' Candreva shoots in the end and it's still rising around Pluto.
    • 30' Parma now have a free-kick around 30 yards out. Candreva over it...
    • 29' Ibra again pops up on the left, back to Ronaldinho, now Antonini who gives it straight to Zaccardo.
    • 28' Ronaldinho scoops a pass into the box as Robinho races through but he's a bit too small and can only head at Mirante.
    • 27' Silva comes forward to find Ronaldinho, lovely ball to release Ibra sliding in but Mirante flies out to block! Great save!
    • 26' Extended celebration for that goal as Ronaldinho signals that the shot was too hot, too hot. Quality goal, he shifted it on to his right and smacked a rising then dipping curler just underneath the bar. His 41st in Serie A.
    • 25' Ronaldinho drives forward and spreads the ball wide to Ibra, who rolls it back in but intercepted. The ball breaks to Pirlo at range AND OH WHAT A GOAL! Classic Pirlo, curled from 40 yards into the top right.
    • 24' Morrone gets some treatment on a non-existent injury and is fine. Eventually the free-kick is taken, sent by Candreva down the left.
    • 23' Gattuso is booked after sliding into Morrone, who hurls himself to the deck like a dying swan.
    • 22' Ibra gives away a free-kick, puling back Morrone's shirt as he tackled him.
    • 21' Good play by Parma down the left as Antonelli combines with Marques, but the final ball is straight at Abiatti.
    • 20' Seedorf slips it wide left to Ibra, but his cross inside with the right foot is poor and Parma clear.
    • 19' Milan are working nice angles on the short passing but the move dies as Ibra tries a backheel, failing to find Robinho.
    • 18' Antonini intercepts as Parma threatened to break into the Milan area. Milan now play keep ball.

    • 16' Antonelli finds Marques on the left but his cross is easy for Abiatti.
    • 15' Short to Angelo, now Morrone as Parma play possession but go all the way back to their penalty area. Poor.
    • 14' Angelo wins another free-kick on the right, which Candreva will take...
    • 13' Antonelli puts it in the mixer but Nesta clears. Good spell this for Parma.
    • 12' Milan back simmering but Seedorf is tackled and Parma break. Marques swings it wide to Angelo who is in on the right and pings it across box, CRESPO DIVES IN SURELY but Nesta eases him off the ball and Abiatti claims! Great defending!
    • 10' Angelo gets the better of Antonini and crosses in but Zambrotta gets there first and Milan clear. After that super start the Rossoneri have gone off the boil.
    • 9' Free-kick to Parma some 30 yards out which Candreva sends just over. Surely a corner after it clips Ronaldinho on the way through, but the ref misses it. Candreva furious.
    • 8' Antonini does see yellow now for a foul deep in the Parma half.
    • 7' Long long delay as Candreva sends it far post, Silva heads up in the air as Marques picks it up. He beats Pirlo, but not Gattuso. Throw.
    • 6' Candreva stands over the ball... taking an age to deliver this...
    • 5' Antonini takes Angelo out but isn't booked. Free-kick to Parma on the right side of the box...
    • 3' Early booking as Angelo is carded for a late challenge on Antonini.
    • 2' IBRA FIRES JUST WIDE! More lovely passing from Milan as Gattuso threads it through the eye of the needle but, from wide, the big Swede can only send it past the far post.
    • 1' Lovely one-touch passing from Arsenal, no, I mean Milan, as they overcook it on the edge of the box, allowing Parma to clear.
    • 1' The first half is underway at Stadio Ennio Tardini!
    • 19:40 So for Parma Valeri Bojinov is benched while Milan revert to a 4-3-3, with Boateng making way for Ronaldinho. Seedorf continues in central midfield with Ambrosini out, while Pato returns to the bench.
