    • Lazio
    • 90+3 The final whistle goals and Milan win 3-0 to go third, thanks in part to the dismissal of Candreva but mostly to Pazzini's excellent game. We're back tomorrow for more Serie A as Inter face Catania!
    • 90+2 A long ball is almost nodded across goal by Lulic, but it goes out for a goal kick.
    • 90+1 Saha hits it in the end but straight at Abbiati, who holds on.
    • 90' Three minutes added time being played as Lazio get ready for this free-kick, which will probably be Ederson...
    • 89' Cana is hacked down by Yepes on the edge of the box. Terrible tackle!
    • 88' Montolivo comes off and applauds the fans. Which is odd, as all three subs are being used... Perhaps he's just getting a drink.
    • 87' NIANG HITS THE BAR! El Shaarawy picks him out on the edge of the box but the French teen smashes a rising drive off the bar!
    • 86' Ledesma with the corner on the right... there's some chat between Yepes and Saha... Abbiati claims.
    • 85' Ledesma swings the free-kick deep but De Sciglio coolly puts it behind. Corner.
    • 84' Free-kick to Lazio as Ledesma is fouled.
    • 82' Clever ball from Robinho to release Abate but his cross is blocked. Robinho then fouls Radu.
    • 81' Flamini on the ball, now El Shaarawy, wide to Robinho as Milan play keep-ball.
    • 80' Montolivo with a tackle in midfield. He brings it clear, a classy performance from him tonight.
    • 79' The corner is cleared by Lazio, who go on the attack but a long ball aimlessly drifts behind.
    • 78' LAZIO SUB: Floccari, who has offered little tonight, is replaced by Saha.
    • 77' Niang with a good cross but put behind for a corner. Lazio to make a sub before it's taken...
    • 76' Milan almost get in down the right but this time Radu can clear. MILAN SUB: Robinho replaces Boateng.
    • 75' Marchetti again claims a long ball into his box but this match is long gone for his side.
    • 73' El Shaarawy gets past Biava but goes down under minimal contact, going down on the edge of the box. No foul.
    • 71' High ball into the Lazio box but Marchetti gathers easily.
    • 70' LAZIO SUB: Edersen is on for Hernanes.
    • 69' JUST WIDE FROM EL SHAARAWY! He drives it across Marchetti but wide, failing to get any curl on it, which would have made it 4-0.
    • 68' Boateng with a mis-hit after a low cross from Niang causes Lazio problems. He slipped as he hit it.
    • 67' MILAN SUB: Boo! Hiss! Allegri takes off Pazzini, on a hat-trick, with Niang on in his place.
    • 65' El Shaaray with a cross that evades Radu AND PAZZINI WITH THE VOLLEY but he hammers it wide! That was the hat-trick chance! Will he get another?
    • 64' Milan are hunting a fourth, and Pazzini the hat-trick. And why not.
    • 62' Lazio pile men forward but Milan clear. This match is over, alas.
    • 61' It was a terrible clearance from Radu, whose head went after that incident, also Marchetti probably should have saved it.
    • 60' BRILLIANT GOAL PAZZINI! Radu gave it away and the Italy striker hammered a rasping drive into the bottom right from all of 30 yards.
    • 59' Boateng and Radu are booked for getting lairy. Much ado about nothing.
    • 58' It all kicks off as Boateng and Radu go head to head... Radu is furious...
    • 57' Flamini is sent down the right wing but his low cross is hacked away from El Shaarawy.
    • 56' Dangerous corner that Biava attacks with a header but he puts it well wide!
    • 55' The ref has a chat with several players on both sides for what can only be described as groping. Hernanes swings it on goal again, on target this time but Abbiati saves. Corner.
    • 54' Hernanes to take this as Ledesma steps aside... He curls it over but will get another go as the ref blew for some pulling.
    • 53' Ambrosini with an unnecessary foul on the edge of his box. Chance for Lazio to pull one back...
    • 51' Taken short to El Shaarawy, who picks out Pazzini for a tap in but the younger Milan forward was offside.
    • 50' Terrible mis-hit from Ambrosini but it drops for Boateng, whose cross-shot is put behind. Corner.
    • 48' Biava booked for clobbering El Shaarawy.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 46' MILAN SUB: Zaccardo on for Zapata /// LAZIO SUB: Cana comes on for Pereirinha.
    • - Looks like we'll have a few changes at the break, Zaccardo certainly coming on for his Milan debut.
    • 45+1 El Shaarawy slips as he prepares to pull the trigger. The whistle goes for half-time, Milan lead 10-man Lazio 2-0.
    • 45' One minute stoppage time being played as the corner is cleared b Pereirinha.
    • 44' Great cross Flamini but scrambled behind for a corner.
    • 43' Marchetti looks folorn. The first goal was his fault, the second his defence's for reacting too slowly to the save. Game over unless Milan lose a man.
    • 42' GOAL IN! The corner is swung on to the head of Pazzini, who powers the header in, fantastic save Marchetti but Boateng reacts quickest to drill it home! 2-0!
    • 41' JUST WIDE FOR MILAN! Abate with a fantastic low cross that Dias gets a toe on, almost sending it in for an own goal but actually with a good decision to put it wide with Pazzini set to score.
    • 40' Poor from the otherwise impeccable Marchetti - he should have held that Abate drive, instead he palmed it into El Shaarawy's path. Same for Pereirinha, whose tackle was brilliant.
    • 39' GOAL MILAN! Perfect timing as Pazzini rolls it into an empty net after El Shaarway's finish is blocked by Pereirinha. That came after Marchetti failed to hold Abate's shot.
    • 38' Boateng is dumped to the floor by Ledesma. Surely only a matter of time...
    • 37' Pazzini on the turn and he hammers the shot on goal, it comes off Biava but no corner is given! Good play De Sciglio in the build-up.
    • 36' Foul on Radu in the middle of the park, Flamini offers a hand.
    • 35' Milan are, rather predictably following Candreva's dismissal, controlling the match. They can't find a way through though - perhaps Robinho should make an entrance.
    • 34' Abate gets in space on the right but his low cross is cleared unconvincingly by Dias. Lazio end up with a goal kick though.
    • 32' Pazzini was punished for the flourish with which he fell; it was a foul, had he just stood his ground he may have had a better chance at winning a penalty.
    • 31' Pazzini is booked for that but Radu got hold of his shirt! He went down easily but it was a foul!
    • 30' Pazzini hits the deck as he tries to turn on to the ball under pressure from Radu! No penalty!
    • 28' Fantastic run by El Shaarawy to skin Gonzalez down the left but Dias nods the cross away before Ledesma draws a foul off Boateng.
    • 27' That was one heck of a cross and one heck of a chance. If El Shaarawy was a few inches taller...
    • 26' JUST WIDE BY DE SCIGLIO! Fantastic bouncing cross from the left-back but the diving El Shaarawy and Pazzini fail to connect and it lands inches wide! Inches!
    • 25' Marchetti appears to have tweaked a muscle, limping around his box as he takes the goal kick.
    • 24' Montolivo has a dig from the edge of the box but he gets it all wrong and the ball bounces high and wide.
    • 23' Pereirinha scrambles it behind for a corner after El Shaarawy got in. All Milan now.
    • 21' Fee-kick to Lazio but wasted by Ledesma.
    • 20' I know many of you will be watching this game on TV as well as following our comments - what did you make of that incident? Did the ref get both calls right, both calls wrong or one of each? I've had my say, so you have yours on Twitter @Reda_Eurosport. LET ME KNOW ON TWITTER?
    • 19' Now Milan have the corner but Boateng heads well over.
    • 18' So finally the free-kick to Milan comes in but El Shaarawy messes up what should have been a good routine with Montolivo, overhitting the pass meaning his Italy team-mate knocks the finish wide.
    • 17' So the ref, in my opinion, gets both calls wrong there - it should have been a yellow card, and - although we're not 100% - it looked a penalty, not a free-kick.
    • 16' Either way, the ref has sent Candreva off! Free-kick on the edge of the box when it looked a penalty, and the ref sends him off even though there were covering defenders, Dias was even able to take the ball as El Shaarawy hit the deck.
    • 15' The ref is still talking to his assistant and it appears to be a free-kick on the edge of the box. Looked a penalty to me.
    • 14' PENALTY MILAN! Surely a penalty as El Shaarawy is tripped by Candreva after cutting inside into the area! But no! The ref talks to his linesman... Confusion...
    • 13' Montolivo swings it in and Boateng attacks but, under pressure from Floccari, heads well over.
    • 12' Boateng shrugs off Dias and wins a corner for Milan on the right. The hosts doing really well now.
    • 11' EL SHAARAWY WITH A MISS! He cannons the header miles over after beating Biava to the ball! Should have scored! Pazzini with a superb cross, but he's the better header of the ball!
    • 9' Dias with a good clearance as Pazzini almost got in. Ambrosini fouls Ledesma though.
    • 7' Flamini gets in down the right but his cross veers out.
    • 6' De Sciglio now on the Milan left, superb cross for Pazzini who lays it up for El Shaarway but cleared by Lazio. Phew!
    • 5' FLOCCARI SHOOTS STRAIGHT AT ABBIATI! Fantastic play by Candreva on the right to pick out the striker but his finish was poor! Mad start to this match!
    • 4 Montolivo with a lovely pass to release El-Shaarawy, he's in on goal but Marchetti rushes out and saves at his feet! It drops for Boateng but his driven shot across goal goes wide! El-Shaarawy went down but the keeper got a hand on it!
    • 4' GREAT SAVE MARCHETTI! Defensive mix-up as a long ball sees Pererinha poke it into El-Shaarawy's path but the Lazio keeper rushes out to block!
    • 3' Floccari just fails to get on to another Candreva through-ball but it rolls back to Abbiati
    • 2' Lazio really pushing down the right, maybe they see De Sciglio as a possible weak link.
    • 1' Early corner for Lazio as Candreva gets forward. Great delivery from Hernandes and Dias flies in but he heads wide!
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 19:40 In the absence of the injured Balotelli, Pazzini starts alongside El-Shaarway, while Ambrosini and Flamini start ahead of Muntari and Nocerino. Robinho is on the bench - can he make an impact? Yepes is in for the injured Mexes. No surprises for Lazio, except Konko is out injured so Pereirinha starts in defence.
    • 19:35 TEAMS - Milan: Abbiati, Abate, Zapata, Yepes, De Sciglio, Flamini, Ambrosini, Montolivo, Boateng, Pazzini, El Shaarawy; Subs: Amelia, Zaccardo, Muntari, Nocerino, Traore, Robinho, Salamon, Gabriel, Niang /// Lazio: Marchetti, Pereirinha, Biava, Dias, Radu, Gonzalez, Hernanes, Candreva, Ledesma, Lulic, Floccari; Subs: Bizzarri, Cana, Onazi, Strakosha, Ederson, Kozak, Ciani, Saha
