90+10´ 

FULL TIME

That´s that. For the second Champions League match in a row AC Milan have thrown away a lead. Atletico Madrid just kept coming and the Italian side could not hold on.

Absolutely brutal but great drama and a brilliant group stage game. Truly excellent.

90+9´ 

The San Siro is quiet but for the Atletico supporters now. Heartbreak for Milan.

Brilliant challenge from Tomori to keep Correa out. This is a mad finish to a mad game.

Atletico come again.

Milan look shellshocked and so, so tired...they were minutes away...

Could it get worse?

Bennacer is off for Florenzi as Milan make their final changes.

Defend, defend, defend.

Kalulu is on for the recently-booked Saelemaekers too.

Yellow time. Saelemaekers picks one up for a slide on Felix and he doesn´t care one bit because it gives the team a breather.

77´ 

Atletico passing it around just looking for a way to cut through this stubborn Milan defence but they simply cannot find a way. Milan are doing their utmost to hold the ball further up the field and give the defence a break.

CLOSE!

Atletico have their first shot on target! Lemar´s deflected effort is well saved by Maignan

74´ 

Atletico Madrid are yet to have a shot on target...

72´ 

CHAOS!

Suarez and Maignan clash in the six-yard box as they each go for the ball, but Maignan comes out worse for wear as he takes a Uruguayan knee to the head.

Accidental for sure, and Suarez, given his reputation, receives an earful from almost everyone despite appearing to ask if the goalie was okay.

  • Theo Hernandez

69´ 

Another yellow, this time for Hernandez for pulling back Suarez...it´s been coming.

68´ 

Atletico with all the possession but they´re yet to truly test Maignan.

The latest effort is Rodrigo de Paul´s strike from the edge of the box that spins high and wide. Should hit the target there because he was in a lot of space.

65´ 

More subs, subs everywhere.

Lemar is on for Kondogbia. All the big guys are on now. Attack, attack, attack.

62´ 

Kondogbia is the latest into the book for what I´d describe as general foul play. Then everyone loses their minds and there´s a classic middle-of-the-pitch scuffle full of dives and what not.

Griezmann is on for Koke and the thuinder has started!

60´ 

Tonali buys his side some time by drawing a foul from Hernandez.

AC Milan are 30 minutes away from the win here...can they hold on?

58´ 

Diaz is down, the star of the show...and he has to come off.

Toure replaces him...and Giroud is on for Leao too.

This game twists and turns again...both sides have been forced to completely change the approach they started with.

55´ 

ON A PLATE

Suarez gets inbetween the Milan defenders but sends his free header wide! I can´t believe he´s missed it!

54´ 

Diaz is essentially a one man attacking midfield now. it´s up to him to get the ball from a tired defence up to Leao.

He does a pretty decent job of it too, running and weaving through Atletico players before drawing a foul. He´s some player.

51´ 

Kondogbia winds up a brilliant hit from the edge of the box but its a few yards wide.

Atletico with all of the ball and you feel this could be a long evening for Milan now. They are backs to the wall and already employing the dark arts of time wasting.

49´ 

Koke lines up an early corner for Atletico. They go short but Rodrigo de Paul completely misreads Koke´s run and plays the ball straight out of play.

  • 2nd Half
46´ 

Atletico Madrid kick off the half with a doubel change.

Lodi and De Paul are on for Hermoso and Carrasco.

Atletico are changing it all up as Simeone looks to make the most of 11 vs 10 for the next 45 minutes.

  • End of 1st Half
 

HALF TIME

A fairly breathless first 45 with Milan 1-0 up but one man down.

A brilliant goal from Leao is the difference and he almost made it two with a brilliant bicycle kick that struck the bar.

But Atletico will fancy themselves in the second half after Kessie received a second bookable offence and handed the visitors the advantage.

44´ 

Milan, to their credit, are still employing attack as the best form of defence. They are going for it.

38´ 

OH MY WORD!

Almost the goal of the season...Leao brings down a ball from the back and his bicycle kick absolutely smashes the bar. Absolutely incredible.

Shades of offside but it´s so tight. Almost brilliant.

  • Sandro Tonali

RED CARD!

All of AC Milan´s good work could be in tatters here!

Kessie has received his second yellow card for rash tackle on Llorente and he´s off! What a massive blow.

Both cheap and unnecessary fouls and he could have cost his team dearly here.

28´ 

Atletico do win a couple of corners now and Suarez makes himself a nuisance at the back post on both occasions.

The first moment of danger Milan have faced.

25´ 

It´s all AC Milan. The crowd are loving it too.

Atletico cannot get a moment on the ball and have hardly strung three passes together.

Every time they´re in possession, Milan win it back in a snip. Suarez has had fewer touches that anyone on the pitch.

23´ 

Diaz has been brilliant so far. Played Rebic through for that first opportunity before creating the goal for Leao moments later.

He looks so silky and Atletico cannot get near him.

  • Rafael Leão

Milan have the breakthrough.

It´s wonderful from Diaz inside the 18 yard box who worms away from Koke before teeing up Leoa.

The Portuguese has plenty left to do but rifles an effort into the corner beyond Oblak to put his side 1-0 up and send the crowd mental.

19´ 

WHAT A SAVE!

That´s why Oblak is the best!

Rebic is played through on goal by a beautiful Diaz ball and he just has the keeper to beat.

He goes for the far corner but Oblak makes himself massive and makes the save.

18´ 

Maignan is there to collect a searching through ball at the feet of the lurking Correa. Good goalkeeping. And up the other end Oblak gobbles up a Diaz effort too...

Milan still on top here but Atletico warming to the hostile atmosphere now and look a little more composed.

14´ 

Diaz lays on the tricks before Tomori goes for goal from distance. This Milan side is oozing confidence right now.

12´ 

Llorente does well to track Hernandez and make the tackle as the left-back surges into the Atletico half.

The noise inside the ground is deafening.

Atletico shout for handball at the other end as the ball pops up off Tomori´s hand...

Referee Cakir is told by the VAR to have a look but he says no already made his mind up...brilliant refereeing to ignore that and let common sense prevail. Never a pen - except maybe for last year.

 

Atletico cannot get out of their own hale at the moment and whenever they have the ball there´s a Milan body there to win it back.

The Spanish side have been second best so far...

 

The short corner is a complete mess and Atletico intercept. But Milan come again quickly...

There´s a real tempo to this game early on...the crowd are making sure of that.

 

Ibrahimovic watching on from the stands with the kind of imperious glare he´s known for.

AC Milan with the early pressure too as Bennacer turns and surges into the final third...and the home side wins a corner to crank up the volume even more.

The San Siro is buzzing.

  • 1st Half
 

LET´S GO

Huge letters read ´AC MILAN IS BACK´ in the crowd, and it´s hard to disagree. 2nd in Serie A, unbeaten in 11 league games, back in the Champions League.

After a difficult decade one of Europe´s great clubs is back to their best...

Settle in for a big one.

THREE MINUTE WARNING

19:56 

THUNDER WARNING

Thunder forecast tonight at the San Siro...

A pathetic fallacy for the drama ahead?

19:52 

LAST TIME OUT

AC Milan lost a 3-2 thriller to Liverpool in the first round of matches, going 1-0 behind, then 2-1 ahead, before two more Liverpool goals gave the Reds all three points. But a great show at Anfield showed us all that Milan are back in business.

Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, were held at home to a goalless draw by Porto, with Suarez´s free-kick the closest the hosts came to a win.

So, both clubs looking for a win tonight.

WHO WANTS IT MORE.

19:46 

TRIPPIER STARTS

Rumours linked the England man to Manchester United this summer but Simeone trusts him on the biggest occasions.

He lines up at right-back for Atletico tonight.

19:42 

HEAD TO HEAD

This is just the third competitive meeting between the two sides, with the previous two coming in 2014 when Atletico knocked out AC Milan 5-1 on aggregate in the round of 16.

Feels like a lifetime ago, but Simeone is still knocking around and will hope for a repeat of either of their previous encounters tonight.

19:35 

THE SAN SIRO

One of the best in world football...

19:29 

BIG NAMES ON THE BENCH

Well well. Atletico´s Griezmann starts this one on the bench alongside the likes of Thomas Lemar, Joao Felix and summer signing Rodrigo de Paul.

Meanwhile, AC Milan are without injured Ibrahimovic and kick things off with Olivier Giroud among the subs.
