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.

There's no doubt United have moved up a couple of levels here. Milan look a little bit shell-shocked.

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
45' 

HT: Milan 0-0 Man United. It's 1-1 on aggregate and the Italians have the away goal in their favour.

45' 

CLOSE! Krunic can't guide his volley on target after Milan had carved the visitors open down the right.

43' 
41' 

Milan create space for Saelemaekers with some silky one-touch play but his driven 25-yard effort is pushed to safety by Henderson.

AC Milan vs. Manchester United
36' 

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.

35' 

STAT: Milan have only kept one clean sheet in their past nine home games in European competition (including qualifiers).

34' 

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.

33' 

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.

31' 
29' 

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.

Harry Maguire of Manchester United passes the ball

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.

25' 

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.

22' 

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.

21' 

A certain Swede watches on...

20' 

Rashford threatens from the left but his shot from the edge of the box is well blocked by Kessie.

19' 

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.

17' 
15' 

Kessie steps into space but his crisp drive is straight at Henderson.

14' 

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).

13' 

CHANCE! Fernandes blazes over from 20 yards out after super approach play from Shaw. You'd expect Bruno to keep that on target.

12' 

James motors down the right and drills a low cross into the middle, but Kjaer reads it and clears his lines.

10' 

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.

8' 

AC Milan are dropping so deep. Surely it's too soon to be going for the shut-out?

6' 

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.

4' 

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.

3' 

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.

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?

19.40 

STAT: Rashford has 18 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season.

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."
