- End of 2nd Half
FT: AC Milan 0-1 Man United. Paul Pogba came off the bench to return from injury with a bang and send the Red Devils through to the last eight by a 2-1 scoreline on aggregate.
- Yellow cardTheo HernandezAC Milan
Hernandez booked for hacking McTominay as he charged towards the corner flag. That should be it for the visitors.
- Yellow cardLuke ShawManchester United
Shaw booked. United hanging on.
Milan have so many bodies forward but United stand firm and Henderson races off his line to hang on to a clipped pass into the mix.
Five minutes added.
CLOSE! Pogba loops a header just over the bar from James' deep cross.
Milan are drinking at the last chance saloon now. Can they strike late again like they did at Old Trafford?
- Yellow cardSimon KjærAC Milan
Milan have looked far more threatening with Zlatan as a focal point. The hosts also have to go for it a bit more. It will leave gaps at the back that United could exploit.
Fernandes takes aim with a 35-yard free kick but Donnarumma watches it all the way and makes a simple save.
- Yellow cardDiogo DalotAC Milan
SAVE! Zlatan rises above Shaw to meet a left-wing cross but Henderson does well to claw it away.

MILAN CHANGE: Diaz on for Krunic.

Can Zlatan do a Pogba and shift the pendulum in this tie once again?

- Yellow cardPierre KaluluAC Milan
Kalulu booked for several nibbles at Pogba.
Zlatan is being readied for the hosts.
There's no doubt United have moved up a couple of levels here. Milan look a little bit shell-shocked.
VIDEO: Pogba is back with a bang!
Saelemaekers looks to level matters instantly, but Henderson beats his powerful shot away.
- GoalPaul PogbaManchester United
GOAL! Pogba makes an immediate impact off the bench with a classy finish following an outrageous dummy to fool the keeper! The Frenchman slammed the ball home from the left edge of the six-yard box after Milan made a real mess of clearing their lines. United lead 2-1 on agg.

UNITED HT CHANGE: Pogba on for Rashford.
- 2nd Half
KICK OFF! Milan get the contest back underway. If the Rossoneri keep a clean sheet they go through. So, no doubt that it's a big 45 ahead for United.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Milan 0-0 Man United. It's 1-1 on aggregate and the Italians have the away goal in their favour.
CLOSE! Krunic can't guide his volley on target after Milan had carved the visitors open down the right.
Milan create space for Saelemaekers with some silky one-touch play but his driven 25-yard effort is pushed to safety by Henderson.
That's a magnificent recovery from Lindelof. He times his tackle to perfection after Castillejo had tried to thread a pass into the left of the United area.
STAT: Milan have only kept one clean sheet in their past nine home games in European competition (including qualifiers).
Henderson does well to beat Kjaer to the loose ball after a half cleared corner from the right had been nodded back into the middle.
That's smart sweeper-keeping from Donnarumma. He races way out of his box to mop up after a ball down the right had threatened to set the lightning quick James free.
Maguire can't get a clean connection on his header as he rises with Kjaer to meet a right-wing corner and it flies harmlessly off target.
LATEST: Former United boss, Jose Mourinho sees his Spurs side go OUT of the Europa League v Dinamo Zagreb. Tottenham had won the first leg 2-0 too.
Back up the other end and Fred tests Donnarumma with a pile-driver from distance. No real danger for the Milan keeper though.
Hernández surges at the heart of the United defence. He goes alone but can't quite pull the trigger before Maguire toes it to safety.
James bursts into space. He has an option to his left but chooses to drive into the area. Tomori matches his pace and just about catches the ball with his lunging tackle. James wants a spot kick, but the referee is unmoved.
A certain Swede watches on...
Rashford threatens from the left but his shot from the edge of the box is well blocked by Kessie.
Shaw with another impressive foray forward. The left back gets to the byline but no one is there to try and get on the end of his cut back.
Kessie steps into space but his crisp drive is straight at Henderson.
STAT: United have won each of their past two away matches against Italian opposition in European competition, most recently against Juventus in November 2018. Prior to this run they had won just three times in 16 such attempts (D3 L10).
CHANCE! Fernandes blazes over from 20 yards out after super approach play from Shaw. You'd expect Bruno to keep that on target.
James motors down the right and drills a low cross into the middle, but Kjaer reads it and clears his lines.
Elsewhere, Arsenal are into the last eight despite losing at home to Olympiacos. However, Tottenham are 3-0 down in extra time v Dinamo Zagreb. It's 3-2 on aggregate to the Croatian side.
AC Milan are dropping so deep. Surely it's too soon to be going for the shut-out?
United are bossing possession in these fledgling exchanges. It's evident OGS wants to cancel out that away goal and take a grip of this tie.
DID YOU KNOW? Milan have won four of their five home games against Manchester United in European competition, with each of the previous five coming within the European Cup/Champions League.
United are already looking very purposeful. Greenwood pulls it back after a dynamic run down the right, but Rashford slips and Shaw can't get there in time to get a shot away.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Man United get this second leg underway (1-1 on aggregate).
VIDEO: Pioli and his players talk up Milan's chances.
Luke Shaw will be hoping to cap news of his England recall earlier today by helping United into the last eight here. Is he currently the best left back in the country, as some pundits are suggesting?
EXPERT VIEW: Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes Donny van de Beek should be given more first-team opportunities at Manchester United.
STAT: Rashford has 18 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season.
With Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial out injured, Mason Greenwood will lead the line again tonight. The youngster hasn't netted in his last 14 appearances - but can he step up and deliver on the big stage tonight?
As we continue to countdown to kick off why not spend a few moments checking out the gossip via our Euro Papers video? In recent days Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Old Trafford! Could it happen? Probably not, but the speculation is fun!
Stefano Pioli: “All the games we played have made us grow. Now we want to qualify. We have gone through a lot to get here. We want to win.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "We need to see progress and if we progress well enough and perform well enough the trophies will end up at the club again. But it's not like a trophy will say that 'we're back'. No. It's the gradual progression and the consistency of being in the top of the league, in and around there, and then add the odd trophies."
Milan make five changes from the team that lost to Napoli. Simon Kjaer, Pierre Kalulu, Soualiho Meite, Hakan Calhanoglu and Alexis Saelemaekers all feature. On-loan Chelsea star, Fikayo Tomori forms part of the home side's defence while Diego Dalot is also named on the bench against his parent club.
United are unchanged from the side that beat West Ham last time out. Notably, Paul Pogba and David de Gea are n the bench following lay-offs.
