Genoa 0-3 AC Milan
Three minutes of added time to be played.
Milan will be delighted with this performance. Three goals and a clean sheet after impressive offensive and defensive displays, especially after the early departure of Kjaer.
Not much to tell you about in the last few minutes. There's no intensity to this game anymore, Milan know they've won the three points and are content with their performance, whereas Genoa seem to have surrendered.
Great save Maignan!
He tips a speculative long-range effort over the bar!

AC Milan make a change
Ibrahimovic's night is over, he's replaced by 20-year-old Pietro Pellegri.
Milan have sustained the early pressure from Genoa well and the control of the game seems to have shifted back to the away side.
Krunic drives into the central areas from the left flank and has a shot just outside the 18-yard box, but it's a weak one and trickles wide.
Another shot on target for Genoa. Maignan there again.
This has been a much more positive start for Genoa, who have scored the majority of their goals in the second period.
AC Milan on the other hand, haven't kept a clean sheet in the league in over a month...
WHAT A SAVE!
Genoa almost have one back, but Maignan denies them with a strong hand before Tomori clears the rebound with an acrobatic bicycle kick!

Johan Vasquez makes a very late challenge on Sandro Tonali, and is lucky not to have been booked.
The corner is headed away, but the ball falls to Ibrahimovic who fires over. He could have had a hat-trick already!
Milan chance! Junior Messsias puts in a dangerous ball towards Ibrahimovic whose shot is blocked and out for a corner.

The early injury distraction to Kjaer hasn't seemed to phase Milan so far, who look in complete control of this one.
Genoa try to utilise the pace of Caleb Ekuban down the right hand side but the long ball over the top was over hit and it goes out for a Milan goal kick.
Genoa are struggling to win the ball off of Milan who look comfortable in possession all over the pitch.
Ibrahimovic from the free-kick! That was far too easy for Zlatan! He gets the shot on target and that's all he needed to do. Genoa didn't make much attempt to block the shot, and the goalkeeper was rooted to the spot. The easiest free-kick he'll ever score, 1-0!

COUNTDOWN: Five minutes until kick-off
Shevchenko joined Genoa three weeks ago after former manager Davide Ballardini was shown the exit door.
Genoa are currently in 18th place and two points off the bottom, with Shevchenko yet to taste victory in the hot seat at Grifone, after draws with Empoli and Udinese and defeat to Roma in his opening three games.
A BIG night for both teams, ten minutes until this one is underway!
Earlier in the week, former Milan striker and current Genoa manager Shevchenko admitted he'll have to control his emotions when he faces his old side tonight.
Ahead of the game he said: "Of course I’ll be emotional but I’m trying to block that out, It’s part of my job, it’s part of life.
" I’m a professional and I promised the Genoa fans that I’d give my all for them. I have to be professional. I’ll do all I can to make things difficult for Milan."
“Genoa will have to be motivated and to have a good spirit. It’s going to be difficult because Milan are a good side.”
Despite being without a league win in their last four games, Milan still sit in third as things stand, and a win can get them back on level terms with Napoli if the league leaders drop points against Sassuolo tonight.
In other team news from the Milan camp, Junior Messias earns his first start for the club, whilst Alessio Romagnoli misses out after getting sent off in the Sassoulo defeat.
Davide Calabria, Olivier Giroud, Samuel Castillejo, Alessandro Plizzari and Ante Rebić are remain unavailable.
The visitor's though will be boosted by the return of Fikayo Tomori, who has missed the last three games due to a muscle injury.
AC Milan will be desperate to bounce back from defeat last time out, they didn't win a league game in the entirety of November, with their last three points coming in Rome against Jose Mourinho's AS Roma on October 31.
Milan's only victory since then was a 1-0 win away to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
Opposite manager Stefano Pioli makes six changes to his side's 3-1 defeat at Sassuolo on Sunday night
