  • Live Commentary

    • FULL TIME. Parma and AC Milan share the spoils. The game ends 1-1.
    • 90+3' Abbiati is on hand to avert the danger as Biabiany does brilliantly to dash past two Milan defenders and loft a cross to the front post.
    • 90+2' Robinho has really failed to make an impact since coming off the bench.
    • 90+2' Robinho lines up a freekick on the corner of the penalty box...but he strikes it straight into the wall.
    • 90' Three minutes added on here!
    • 87' Jonathan Biabiany goes into the referee's notebook after a mistimed lunge on Mattia De Sciglio.
    • 83' Time running out for both sides. Will there be a late winner at Stadio Ennio Tardini?
    • 82' Free kick for Milan. De Jong tees up Montolivo. Great strike but an even better save by Mirante.
    • 81' Final roll of the dice for Allegri's side as Giampaolo Pazzini replaces Bojan.
    • 79' El Shaarawy has been much livelier this second half and again unleashes a venomous shot from distance. However, Mirante gets across to keep the sides level.
    • 78' Yepes wins a free kick in the defensive half
    • 77' De Jong loses the ball in possession and Abbiati is forced into a save following a long range shot from Parolo.
    • 76' Massimiliano Allegri looks animated down on the touchline and is ushering his players about the pitch. The 45-year-old has been under pressure after Milan's worst start to the season in 82 years.
    • 75' Final change for Parma. Marco Parolo on for Gianluca Musacci
    • 71' Ignazio Abate makes a marauding run down the right-hand wing and all he has to do is pick out a Milan player in the box but he contrives to pass straight to a Parma defender and a good chance goes begging. Bojan vents his frustration by berating the Italian right-back.
    • 70' The Rossoneri have top goalscorer Giampaolo Pazzini on the bench. Could he be the man to turn this game in Milan's favour?
    • 68' Robinho enters the fray at the expense of Boateng.
    • 67' Bojan attempts to restore Milan's lead with a well struck effort from 20 yards but Mirante is equal to it.
    • 66' GOAL! 1-1 PARMA: Daniele Galloppa equalises for Parma and the crowd are off their feet. Well-taken set-piece. Musacci lays the ball off to Galloppa on the edge of the box and his left-footed drive found the back of the net, into the bottom right corner. No chance for Abbiati. 1-1!
    • 64' Abbiati is shown a yellow card for Milan
    • 62' Milan also make a change. Ambrossini who is on a yellow comes off and is replaced by Montolivo.
    • 62' Another change for Parma. Biabiany on for Rosi
    • 59' Boateng is the second Milan player to be cautioned after a mistimed tackle on Gobbi.
    • 59' Yellow card for Kevin Prince Boateng
    • 57' This game has really opened up. El Shaarawy surging down the left-hand flank prepares to pull the trigger but he is denied by a wonderful last-ditch tackle from Zaccardo.
    • 56' Wonderful goalline block from Yepes! Gobbi closes in for the tap-in but is denied. Superb defending.
    • 54' Nocerino tries his luck from the edge of the box and forces Mirante into a smart save down low to his left.
    • 52' Donadoni points to the bench. Ishak Belfodil replaces Dorlan Pabón.
    • 52' Oh what a sitter! Boateng was unmarked and just a few yards out but inexplicably heads wide from Bojan’s brilliant cross.
    • 50' Brilliant start to the second half for Allegri's side! El Shaarawy adds to his double in midweek.
    • 50' GOAL! 1-0 AC Milan: El Shaarawy latches onto Bojan's pass before surging past his marker and drilling the ball low through the legs of Mirante.
    • 46' AC Milan have a great record against Parma, winning 13 of their 18 Serie A encounters but which side will break the deadlock?
    • 45' We’re back underway here at the Stadio Ennio Tardini!
    • 45' No added time given. HALF TIME: Parma 0-0 Milan.
    • 43' Parma respond well and at the other end Ninis' fizzing drive flashes just wide of the post. Good end to end stuff here as we approach half time.
    • 42' Much better from Allegri's side! El Shaarawy tees up Bojan on the edge of the box he curls a beautiful effort towards the top corner but sees it agonisingly bend over the crossbar.
    • 40' El Shaarawy makes a surging run to the danger zone, skipping past two defenders but fails to play a decisive past to Pato who was unmarked. Much better from Milan.
    • 36' Bojan wriggles past his marker to send a low shot just wide of the post.
    • 33' Suso puts in a teasing ball into the box from the left, Abbiati rushes in to punch away. The towering keeper is clearly unhappy with his defence.
    • 31' Bojan and El Shaarawy are struggling to link up a partnership so far in this game.
    • 29' Ambrosini has an attempt on goal but slices his shot horribly over the bar.
    • 27' Parma are growing back into this match after the early Milan pressure.
    • 25' Rosi has posed as the biggest threat for the hosts so far and he once again gets in behind De Sciglio to provide the cross. Amauri seems the intended target but so far the Colombian defender Yepes has dealt well with the Brazilian.
    • 22' Penalty appeal! Gianluca Musacci's freekick deflects narrowly over the crossbar and from the resulting corner, Lucarelli goes down under a challenge from Zapata but the referee deems that there is not sufficient contact and waves play on.
    • 22' Foul on Yepes. Free kick for Milan.
    • 21' Parma yet to really test Abbiati.
    • 19' Yellow card for Ambrosini. He knew he couldn’t catch the speedy Pabon so pulls him down.
    • 16' The best effort of the match so far, Abate's deep cross is met by the head of Boateng and it requires a brilliant parry from Mirante.
    • 13' Boateng tees up a shot on his left foot from the edge of the box but his effort goes straight into the gloves of Mirante.
    • 12' Parma counter attack down the right wing and it requires a good block to prevent Rosi's cutback from reaching Amauri and Pabón in the box.
    • 11' A mistake in the AC Milan lineup. Ignazio Abate starts at right-back with Mattia De Sciglio on the left. Apologies for any confusion.
    • 10' Pouring down with rain at the Stadio Ennio Tardini. Wet conditions for the players.
    • 8' Throw-in to Milan taken quickly by Ibate.
    • 7' We have a player down. Ninis limping, just caught late by Ambrosini
    • 3' Yellow presented to Rosi for a dive. Not good to see so early in the game.
    • 2' Early chance there for Parma's Pabon. Safely saved by the keeper.
    • 18:00 So here we go, the referee blows his whistle and we’re underway. The visitors kick off.
    • 17:53 Parma’s last league victory over Milan stretches back to March 2010 with Valeri Bojinov striking a 90th minute winner.
    • 17:45 PARMA: Mirante, Zaccardo, Paletta, Lucarelli; Rosi, Musacci, Ninis, Galloppa, Gobbi, Pabón, Amauri /// MILAN: Abbiati; Abate, Zapata, Yepes, De Sciglio, De Jong, Ambrosini, Nocerino, Boateng, Bojan, El Shaarawy.
