    • Chievo
    • 90+2' The corner comes to nothing and that's it. Milan got the job done in the first half and cruise to a 4-0 win. Follow me on Twitter - @liamhappe - thanks to joining me tonight!
    • 90+1' Free-kick out on the left wing is sent in well by Bradley to the far post. Amelia punches it out but Chievo have another chance at a consolation, the shot deflected out for a corner.
    • 90' Two minutes of added time to be played.
    • 88' Emanuelson fouls Jokic for another Chievo free-kick.
    • 87' Antonini's cross from the left is too strong for the run of Robinho.
    • 86' Decent hit by Hetemaj! Held by Amelia!
    • 85' Robinho tries a clever incisive through pass to play El Shaarawy through but the half-Egyptian midfielder didn't read his team-mate's intentions and Sorrentino picks it up.
    • 84' Now Van Bommel brings down Hetemaj, though it looked like the ball was touched first by the lunging foot of the Dutchman.
    • 83' Robinho fouls Cesar. Defensive free-kick Chievo.
    • 82' El Shaarawy goes down a yard or two outside the area, but is told to get up.
    • 80' Pellissier tries to take on Yepes to get behind the back line, but is left in a heap. Legally, to add insult to injury. Good rugged defending.
    • 79' Cesar again to the rescue, sliding the ball back to Sorrentino to prevent Nocerino from going one-on-one.
    • 78' Cesar heads a Nocerino short cross out of the danger zone.
    • 77' Pato the third and final Milan player to come off, his replacement is Stephan El Shaarawy.
    • 76' Emanuelson gets a warning from the ref when he catches a defender by the heels trying to salvage a dying Milan attack.
    • 75' Chievo's raking ball forward is overhit and goes all the way off for a goal kick.
    • 74' Milan launch forward and Robinho is put through. Good defending by Cesar to keep with him and he forces the striker to pull back, where he loses his balance and allows the defender to clear the danger.
    • 73' Aqulani continues the trend of players taking free-kicks they'd won themselves by chipping his delivery towards the far post, it swerves away from goal a little and Nocerino scuffs his volley. Sorrentino catches.
    • 72' Aquilani is brought down by Jokic as he heads into Chievo's final third.
    • 71' Pellissier had won the free-kick himself, Yepes the man committing the foul.
    • 70' Chievo win a free-kick in a good position, 20 yards from goal dead centre. Pellissier strikes low, it hits a leg on the way but Amelia goes low to take the ball.
    • 69' No hat-trick for Ibrahimovic. He is subbed off for Robinho for the final 20+ minutes.
    • 68' ...and it takes a full-stretch lunge from Yepes to get the ball out of danger from Vacek's cross from the left.
    • 67' Chievo try a counter of their own through Hetemaj...
    • 65' Emanuelson tries to burst forward on the break, but it's cut out immediately.
    • 64' Pato attempts to return the ball to Ibrahimovic with a back-header inside the area, but it's chested back to the keeper by Jokic.
    • 63' Milan have gone nineteen minutes without scoring, their dryest patch of the match so far.
    • 62' Third and final change for Chievo as well: Rigoni replaced by Kamil Vacek.
    • 61' Finally time for that change: Prince-Boateng the man to make way for Emanuelson.
    • 60' Aquilani's cross is hoofed clear for an attacking throw.
    • 59' Urby Emanuelson is waiting to come on for Milan. But the ball just won't go out of play...
    • 58' Pato turns well and powers through the defence, but Sorrentino times his run out well and swoops on the ball.
    • 57' Chievo almost get through again, but Yepes cuts out the danger.
    • 56' Pato collects a lofted pass into the box, but was offside.
    • 55' Great break from Milan and Aquilani gets into the danger zone, he looks to tee up Ibra at the far post but Bradley intercepts.
    • 54' Now Thereau is offside amidst a patient build-up from the away side on the edge of the box.
    • 53' Was a neat finish, chipped over Amelia. Shame about the timing of the run.
    • 52' From the free-kick, Pellissier is picked out and he puts the ball in the back of the net... but he was offside.
    • 51' Thereau is fouled by Van Bommel in the middle of the park.
    • 50' Chievo do well to cut out further Milan pressure. Confident start from the hosts, and understandably so.
    • 48' Bradley is dispossessed by Nocerino, who sets Antonini free for a cross which Chievo eventually beat away after a bit of frantic pinballing.
    • 47' Perparim Hetemaj replaces Luciano. Ibra beats the offside trap to get through but puts a chance at a hat-trick wide.
    • 46' Second half kicks off, and to the surprise of few Chievo have made a switch at the break...
    • 45+2' Half-time, and the contest is already over. 4-0 at the break.
    • 45+1' Two minutes added on at the end of the first half.
    • 45' Pato was the man brought down in the box for the spot kick. Slick Milan move down the left culminates in Antonini slicing a shot from 20 yards high and wide.
    • 44' Ibrahimovic steps up... and finds the top corner from 12 yards! Two for Ibra, four for Milan!
    • 43' PENALTY MILAN! Luciano booked!
    • 42' Good Sammarco diagonal pass finds Bradley in space inside the left-hand corner of the area, and that's a cracking volley! Just wide of goal! Chievo deserved something from that.
    • 41' ...until Silva checks Thereau, conceding a free-kick about 35 yards out.
    • 40' Antonini's cross misses Aquilani and Chievo break...
    • 39' Thiago Silva cuts out a forward pass from Luciano, looking to get into the Milan box.
    • 37' ... but his top-spinning shot doesn't dip early enough and it's over the bar.
    • 36' Van Bommel is fouled by Bradley 20 yards out. Big chance for another goal for Ibra....
    • 35' Milan almost counter as Chievo throw bodies forward, but it's snuffed out.
    • 34' The man known as 'The Duck' breaks his scoring duck, and already Milan have scored more goals than any other Serie A side this weekend.
    • 33' Nocerino's corner is cleared only as far as Aquilani! Luciano blocks but it falls for PATO! 3-0!
    • 32' Great sliding challenge from Cesar on Nocerino out on the left flank at the expense of another corner, Milan's third. Nothing comes of the corner directly, but Antonini eventually has a shot deflected for a fourth corner.
    • 31' Pato's corner isn't a very good one and it's headed to safety.
    • 30' Cesar is forced to put a driven cross behind for a Milan corner. Good move from the hosts.
    • 29' Abate concedes a free-kick which Bradley fires straight at goal - and straight at Amelia.
    • 28' Antonini feeds Ibra after a good run forward but the Swede's first-time attempt to chip the back line with his final ball is blocked.
    • 27' Ibrahimovic gets into the area from the left, low cross coming up - and Jokic hoofs it clear a yard or two from the goal line!
    • 26' Some tough tackling from Luciano - if he was closing players down like this from the start, perhaps the score wouldn't be 2-0...
    • 25' Frey cuts out a cross-field pass to Nocerino by Van Bommel.
    • 23' Francesco Acerbi comes on for the injured Mandelli.
    • 22' Mandelli is hurt, he's limping off after a tangle with Ibra and won't continue by the looks of things.
    • 21' Boateng attempts to backheel a Nocerino cross to a team-mate, but there's nothing but yellow shirts with him inside the area.
    • 20' Sammarco fouls Van Bommel inside the Milan half.
    • 19' Ibrahimovic is unable to get a cross in from a left thanks to good close defending from Frey.
    • 18' The visitors are responding well to going two down at the moment, pressing hard to prevent this from the margin becoming a chasm.
    • 16' Goal! Milan 2-0 Chievo - Ibrahimovic receives the ball just outside the area, centre of goal. He turns and plants a lovely shot over the goalkeeper for his 100th goal in Serie A.
    • 15' Milan with a decent freekick to the left of the area. Ibra to take. He plays it back for Antonini who scoops a ball to the back post. It's half cleared...
    • 13' Van Bommel strides out of defence. Antonini on the left wing with a terrible pass gives the ball away. Chievo spring forward and it's almost a lovely ball from Luciano as he bends the ball around the defence. Just too far aheadof the striker though.
    • 12' Abate almost slips in a dangerous situation, but he manages to clear his lines. A foul on the halfway line commited by Silva.
    • 11' Chievo win the freekick about 40 yards from goal. Bradley takes the freekick, sweeps it into the box. It's a bit of a mess, a shot in the melee, but it bounces off Abbiati who spreads himself well.
    • 10' Terribkle oass from Ibra, van Bommel wins the ball back, pulls the trigger, but the shot is charged down.
    • 9' Mandelli is down injured and play stops for a while...
    • 8' Goal! Milan 1-0 Chievo - Thiago Silva sweeps the ball into the bottom corner from 25 yards. It's laid off by Boateng and it takes a slight deflection as it flies past Sorrentino.
    • 7' Boateng on the overlap past Abate, but the Italian puts too much on the ball. Corner though...
    • 6' Ibra makes no attept to get to the near post as Boateng whips in a good ball. Milan still have the ball though.
    • 5' Yepes clears next to his corner flag. He's getting a chance tonight because Nesta is out until the new year.
    • 4' Bradley with the good interception, but he loses the ball immediately with a poor pass forward. Ibra with an excellent through ball, but Aquilani just can't quite get on the end of it as Sorrentino charges out.
    • 3' Chievo have recovered after that early scare and are now on the ball. Frey gets down the right but is flagged for offside.
    • 1' Ibrahimovic hits the bar after 40 seconds. The keeper stays rooted to the spot and it smacks over for a goalkick.
