Thanks for joining us!

90'+4

FULL TIME! A 1-0 win for Milan, and with Juventus winning 1-0 at Cesena the gap to the Turin side remains three points.

90'+3 

Late corner for Milan, and they opt to keep the ball there...

90' 

Four minutes of added time to play...

89' 

Milan knocking it about in midfield now...

87'

Emanuelson breaks down the left after winning a battle in midfield for the ball with Biondini. He sends a cross in, which Ibrahimovic gets a flick on, and the ball arrives at Boateng's feet at the far post. He then fires it underneath Frey to give Milan the lead!

86'

GOAL FOR MILAN! Finally! At last! Praise the heavens! We have a goal and it's Boateng for the home side!!

84'

Yellow for Moretti as he tries but fails to foul Boateng...

81' 

Juventus have taken the lead at Cesena, so the gap as it stands now five points between them and Milan...

80'

Atonini off, Maxi Lopez on for Milan. For Genoa Veloso comes on for Belluschi.

78'

Cassano just wide! The Milan man curls a shot which is so close but just the wrong side of the right post!

76'

Frustration on the faces of Milan's players as Boateng's touch lets him down. Change for Genoa: Sculli off, Alhassan on.

75' 

Muntari drags a wild effort well wide as Milan waste possession.

74' 

SAVE BY FREY! The Swiss uses his feet to hack away a shot from Yepes...

72'

RED CARD! Jankovic picks up his second caution of the evening for a wild lunge on Abate right on the edge of Genoa's area, and the away side are down to 10 men...

70' 

Ibrahimovic gets to the by-line and cuts the ball back for Nocerino, who fires a panicky shot across the face of goal...

68'

Birsa off, Carvalho on for Genoa.

67' 

Milan remain frustrated, as do Juventus at Cesena where it is also 0-0...

64' 

Milan piling on the pressure now...

63'

Milan picking up pace now and Emanuelson volleys just wide after a lay off from Ibrahimovic...

61'

Great block by Biondini to deny Boateng a volley on goal after a great cross from the left.

60'

Jankovic booked after pulling back Abate... Seemed like the referee only did that after Abate pleaded for a card...

58'

Moretti stays down after a tangle with Boateng. Looked pretty innocuous to me...

56' 

At the other end Nocerino goes down inside Genoa's area looking for a penalty. Weak...

55' 

Genoa get forward with two waves of attacks but Kaladze can't find a way through in the second of those.

53'

Muntari is booked after charging around and fouling Kaladze and then Biondini in quick succession.

51'

Save by Frey! Ibrahimovic works the Genoa keeper at his near post with a shot!

50'

Double change for Milan, and hopefully an injection of inspiration as Boateng and Cassano come on for El Shaarawy and Van Bommel...

49' 

Emanuelson drives at the Genoa defence and is brought down by Granqvist.

48' 

Palacio nearly gets in at the other end but it's a similar story there as Nesta makes a last ditch challenge that pays off.

47' 

Milan attack and win a throw in Genoa's half... No way through again however...

46'

KICK OFF! The second half is on...

45'+1

HALF TIME. Let's hope for a better second half... We'll be back shortly!

45' 

One minute of added time to be played...

44'

Yepes is booked for harassing the refere in the wake of that penalty appeal.

43' 

Ibrahimovic goes down in hope of winning a penalty. Milan are getting desperate and it's no wonder why, this is a poor game...

40' 

Muntari goes on a run right at the heart of the Genoa defence but runs straight into trouble...

37' 

Ibrahimovic hammers the set piece into the wall. This game needs a spark...

36' 

El Shaarawy is fouled by Sculli and Milan win a free-kick 30 yards out...

34' 

Milan win a corner which El Shaarawy delivers... The ball drops to Muntari at the far post but his header is poor.

30'

The first genuine chance of the game and a real opportunity for Milan. A great run from Emanuelson starts it, and he finds El Shaarawy on the right, whose near post cross for Ibrahimovic is cut out...

28' 

Abate catches Biondini late, and escapes a booking...

26' 

Not much happening at the moment, as both teams knock the ball around in midfield when in possession while waiting for an opening... Hope there's one soon...

23' 

Nocerino with a good cross in which is turned behind for a Milan corner with Ibrahimovic lurking...

20' 

Still no breakthrough, both sides have tried to use pace down the wings to make inroads, with Birsa looking dangerous for Genoa on a couple of occasions.

17' 

Kucka goes for goal from 25 yards but his effort is skewed and too high.

15' 

No real chances on goal to speak of as yet, just Kucka's effort which had the sting taken out of it by a deflection/block...

12' 

Genoa asking plenty of questions of Milan's defence, and this game is fairly end to end...

8' 

Kucka has a shot blocked as Genoa get an early chance in on goal.

7' 

El Shaarawy making life uncomfortable for the Genoa defence with a couple of testing runs...

5' 

Muntari has one shot blocked before firing another high and wide as Milan test the Genoa defence...

3' 

Milan muscling their way round the pitch early on, dominating possession so far...

17:01

KICK OFF! We're underway at the San Siro...

16:55 

Five minutes from kick off...

16:50 

Interesting fact: This fixture will see Serie A’s best attack (AC Milan, 63 goals scored) meet its worst defence (Genoa, 62 conceded).

16:45 

TEAM LINE-UPS... MILAN: Abbiati, Abate, Nesta, Yepes, Antonini, Nocerino, Van Bommel, Muntari, Emanuelson, El Shaarawy, Ibrahimovic /// GENOA: Frey, Granqvist, Kaladze, Moretti, Birsa, Kucka, Jankovic, Biondini, Belluschi, Sculli, Palacio.

16:40 

This game kicks off at 17:00 UK time by the way.

16:35 

So Milan trail Serie A leaders Juventus - who play away at bottom-of-the-table Cesena at the same time - by three points... Juve have a better goal difference by three, so a handsome win for Milan against relegation threatened Genoa could see them go top of the table this evening.

16:30 

Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE commentary as Milan host Genoa at the San Siro!
