  • Live Commentary

    • 90' FT Udinese 2-1 Milan
    • 88' Huge spaces appearing at the back now that Milan are down to nine men.
    • 87' Another big chance for Udinese! Milan caught cold on the break as Di Natale picks out Ranegie, but he heads over.
    • 85' Pasquale almost puts the game beyond Milan's reach with a thumping effort from distance that almost knocks Abbiati off his feet.
    • 83' Prince is off! Milan are down to nine men after Prince gets a second yellow for a barge on Peryra. Harsh, very very harsh.
    • 82' Coda hacks down Bojan on the edge of the box, and sees yellow.
    • 81' Allegri is going for it with that attacking change. A goal here may just save his job.

    • 79' Udinese hacking everything away from their own 18 yard line.
    • 77' Milan pushing but Udinese almost catch them on the counter-attack through Ranegie, but he eventually loses possession.

    • 73' Prince is booked for a late tackle on Pinzi.
    • 70' Brkic makes a good save from Pazzini's shot. This isn't over yet.
    • 69' Milan sub: Acerbi on, Emanuelson off. Emanuelson sacrificed as Allegri needed a defender to replace the dismissed Zapata.

    • 61' Prince shoots from distance, but the ball trickles into Brkic's arms.
    • 59' Handbags between Allan and Montolivo, after the Udinese player fouled Abate.
    • 57' That goal has really taken the wind out of Udinese's sails. On top until that strike.
    • 55' What a goal by El Shaarawy! Prince's impact is seen immediately as he drives forward through the middle and finds Pazzini. Pazzini lays the ball off to El Shaaraway, who rattles the ball in first time from 25 yards. Awesome strike.
    • 54' GOAL! El Shaarawy for Milan!
    • 53' Milan sub: Prince on, Ambrosini off
    • 52' Half chance at the other end, but Di Natale drags his shot well wide from a decent position.
    • 50' El Shaarwary latches onto a long ball and rolls off Danilo before snatching at his shot. It flies into the side-netting.

    • 43' Milan trying to respond before the break, but Udinese seem comfortable.

    • 40' GOAL! Udinese 1-0 Milan (Ranegie)
    • 39' Ambrosini is booked for a cynical tug on Pasquale.
    • 37' Milan chance! El Shaarawy gets the ball from Nocerino 20 yards out andtries to bend a low effort inside the far post - but it flies just wide.
    • 35' At the other end, Emanuelson is unlucky to be penalised as he battled his way past Allan.
    • 33' Another Udinese chance as Di Natale swings a dangerous free-kick into the box, but Mexes just about gets enough on his header to clear.
    • 31' Udinese almost catch Milan on the counter-attack, but Faraoni's cross evades everyone in the box.
    • 29' Abate shows great pace before releasing Emanuelson down the right flank, but Danilo sees the danger and cleans up.
    • 27' (And save Mexes's blushes)
    • 26' Almost a calamity at the back for Milan. Ranegie picks Mexes's pocket and appears to be clean through, but Zapata gets back to sweep up.
    • 24' Montolivo, Ambrosini and Nocerino seeing more of the ball as Milan attempt to wrestle back control of this game.
    • 22' Udinese calling the shots at the moment.
    • 21' Chance for Di Natale again, but this one is much more difficult. Pinzi puts a cross in and Di Natae's ambitious left foot volley flies wide.
    • 19' An "air kick" is the technical term.
    • 18' Big chance for Udinese! Mesmah loses the ball and Pereyra muscles his way through to the byline and pulls the ball back to Di Natale, who fails to make contact with the ball.
    • 16' Di Natale plays a cute through ball to Allan, but Zapata gets across well to see off the danger. Allan then fouls Zapata.
    • 14' Udinese are curbing Milan's enthusiasm at the moment. The visitors struggling to regain their early impetus.
    • 13' Udinese seeing more of the ball, but are continually wasting possession by hitting long balls to Di Natale.
    • 11' Encouraging spell for Udinese. Pasquale drives down the left and sends a dangerous cross into the Milan box. Mesbah and Nocerino only half clear and Pinzi spanks a volley just wide.
    • 9' It's all Milan now. Udinese struggling to get out of their own half.
    • 7' Emanuelson should score! He's put clean through but, from a tight angle, sees his effort tipped over the bar by Brkic. Big chance.
    • 5' The resulting corner is fired in to Mexes, whose excellent overhead kick from 25 yards is saved.
    • 4' Big miss by Pazzini! Nocerino's effort is deflected into the path of Pazzini, but he miscues his effort off an Udinese defender and out for a corner.
    • 2' Udinese have started on the front foot but the first chance falls to Milan's Pazzini, who drags his shot wide.
    • 1' We are underway at Udinese.
