    • 90+3' All over! Milan complete 2-0 victory. A deserved win for the visiting side. Impressive outing for them after the early trials and tribulations of the tear gas.
    • 89' Three minutes to be added to the action.
    • 88' Genoa have now won only two of their past nine league matches. Grim faces among the home directors.
    • 87' Milan with an enormous 72% of possession in this match. Have been the better side for large swathes of the action as they run down the clock.
    • 86' Roma the latest man into the book for showing his frustration. Too much for the 10 men once Kaladze departed.
    • 85' Cristóbal Jorquera takes over from Lucas Pratto for Genoa.
    • 84' Stephan El Shaarawy replaces Robinho for the visiting side.
    • 83' A booking for Veloso after he flew into a late tackle on Nocerino. This game is over.
    • 82' Seedorf arrives to replace Ambrosini for Milan.
    • 81' Ze Eduardo goes for goal from long range, but Milan have enough bodies back to block the shot.
    • 80' Atonini is caught offside from Ibrahimovic's attempted through ball.
    • 79' Nocerino sees a shot blocked by the diving Frey before Ibrahimovic is ruled offside.
    • 78' Juventus host Cesena on Sunday knowing a win will take them top again.
    • 77' Mesto catches Silva with a late tackle. This match all over bar the shouting.
    • 76' The Rossoneri had won just one in their last 11 visits to Genoa, in August 2007. Better night for them this evening.
    • 75' Lovely cross from Boateng, and he wasn't missing from there. Finally a goal for Nocerino, who has worked hard for that moment.
    • 74' GOAL! Nocerino scores for Milan. Surely game over now....a 2-0 lead....
    • 73' Ze Roberto arrives to replace Jankovic, who has worked tirelessly this evening.
    • 72' Ibrahimovic decides to crash an effort at goal from distance, but always over the bar.
    • 71' Mesto caught late by Nocerino, but the move breaks down. Genoa set to make another change here.
    • 70' Veloso lifts the dead ball into the Milan box before Mesto goes to ground to win a free-kick.
    • 69' Golden chance for Rossi! Merkel picked him out unmarked, but the backheel is inches wide of the Milan goal. Almost an unlikely leveller.
    • 68' Nocerino takes up a nice position out wide, but fails to pick out a team-mate. Goalkick to Genoa.
    • 67' Rossi manages to keep the ball in play out wide. Lifts the ball into the area, but easy take for Amelia, who has had little or nothing to do in this half.

    • 65' Thiago Silva sees a glimpse of goal, and tries to bury the shot from 30 yards out but his effort drifts wide.
    • 64' Robinho finding more space out wide. Tries the short pass, but the ball deflects behind for a corner to Milan.

    • 62' Ibrahimovic dinks the ball into the middle of the box, but the home defence hold firm to clear.
    • 61' Pratto fires the ball across the face of the Milan box, but too high with the delivery. Ball flies out of play on the other side.
    • 60' Boateng brings the ball clear, but opts for a pass rather than the shot and Genoa scramble the ball clear.
    • 59' Milan will surely get more chances in this match the way it is working out. Genoa struggling to make any impression upon the visiting defence.
    • 58' More gas being let off in the home end of the ground after the earlier delay in the match.
    • 57' Astonishing miss by Robinho! Lovely cross by Aquilani, but the Brazilian somehow lifts the shot over the bar from three yards out.
    • 56' Ambrosini takes out Pratto with a late challenge, and the home side have a free-kick.
    • 55' Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored seven goals in his last six Serie A appearances. Could be more on offer here.

    • 52' Kaladze is off the park. Late challenge on Ibrahimovic and Milan have a penalty. Was miles away from the ball. What a chance now for Milan...
    • 51' Ball back with Milan. Prince-Boateng with the shot from the centre of the box, but the shot is charged down. Neat play by Robinho.
    • 50' In their last seven games, the Rossoneri have scored a total of 22 goals: they have scored three or more goals in all but the goalless draw in Florence.
    • 49' Ibrahimovic can't get on the end of the cross by Robinho. Ball back with the Genoa keeper Frey.
    • 48' Prince-Boateng taken out of the play late by Kaladze, who is booked for that cynical challenge.

    • 46' We are off and running in the second half....
    • 45+2' There goes the whistle for the break. 0-0 in this one. All to play for in the second period.
    • 44' We are into two minutes of time added on....
    • 43' Prince-Boateng fails to keep the ball in play out wide. He looks anything but happy out there as half-time approaches.
    • 42' Milan with nine shots on goal and 72% of possession, but Genoa have found a bit more joy the longer this game has gone on.
    • 41' Moretti booked for taking out Abate as he threatend to dash clear.
    • 40' Has been an eventful first period. Nocerino fouling Rossi. Free-kick to Genoa.

    • 37' Ibrahimovic decides to go for goal, but ends up lifting the dead ball over the bar from distance. Poor effort really.

    • 35' Genoa have beaten AC Milan just twice in their last 20 Serie A meetings, both at the Marassi.

    • 33' Granqvist stands tall in the middle of the Genoa defence to hammer the ball clear. Game beginning to open up.
    • 32' Fine save by Amelia to nudge the ball over the ball from a spinning free-kick. That could easily have ended up in the net.
    • 31' Mesto fouled by Antonini, who is rightly booked for pulling him back.
    • 30' More gas goes off behind a goal as Thiago Silva can't direct a header on goal at the back post. Milan still the dominant force in this one.
    • 29' Granqvist is booked for taking out Ibrahimovic with a crude late challenge.
    • 28' Ambrosini miskicks in front of goal when he seemed likely to score. Lovely ball by Ibrahimovic to play in the Milan skipper.
    • 27' Ibrahimovic rattles in shot from outside of the box. Saved by Frey before Robinho is caught offside.
    • 26' Milan with a massive 74% of possession, but nothing to show for it as Nocerino knocks a shot wide of the home goal from the edge of the area. Never got hold of the shot.
    • 25' Robinho throws a ball across the face of goal, but no takers on hang to convert that opportunity.
    • 24' Robinho continues to frustrate with his final ball. Abate tries to get a move going, but his cross from the other wing is blocked by Moretti.

    • 22' Boateng turns and fires in a shot from 25 yards, but his effort is wide of the goal. Worth a hit from that range.
    • 21' Milan keeping the ball again with some regularity without really troubling Genoa. Ibrahimovic makes a dash down a flank.
    • 20' Granqvist hits Boateng with a late challenge. Free-kick to Milan as the visitors try to trouble the home goal. Genoa with plenty of bodies back.
    • 19' AC Milan have kept three consecutive clean sheets in their last three league games.
    • 18' Abate takes out Moretti with a late challenge, and is going to need a bit of treatment. Not sure that was intentional but he is needing some treatment.
    • 20.10 We are ready to go again. Players back on the park. A bit of a delay, but the referee is happy to continue as he resets his watch.
    • 20.05 Tear gas has gone off in the stands, and there is a delay in the action. Some of the visiting players look fine, but the Genoa players are back in the dressing room. Unbelievable scenes.
    • 17' Well these are some scenes in Genoa. Some Milan players still out, some Genoa players in the dressing room. Mayhem in the ground.

    • 9' Pratto sees a shot deflected wide of the visiting goal and Genoa have a corner.
    • 8' Nice play by the visitors before Robinho hammers a shot over from distance. Decent effort, but always flying high.

    • 5' Genoa have beaten AC Milan just twice in their last 20 Serie A meetings, both at the Marassi.
    • 4' Dainelli fouled by Ibrahimovic. He is going to need a spot of treatment after that challenge. The big Swede lucky to avoid a booking.
    • 3' Milan keeping the ball well in the opening moments. Nocerino almost in behind the home defence, but a superb tackle by Rossi saves the day.
    • 2' Huge night for Milan as they try to return top of Serie A. Genoa are unbeaten at home in their last nine Serie A games (seven wins and two draws): their last defeat was back in April against Cagliari.
