  • Live Commentary

    • FULL TIME: Palermo 2-2 AC Milan. What a cracking match and Massimiliano Allegri breathes again. Perhaps ...
    • 90+3' Nocerino tries to play in Bojan but a free kick is awarded to Palermo for a high boot. Time almost up.
    • 90+2' Ilicic comes away with it and wins a free kick. He has been a stand out player.
    • 90+1' Foul by Mantovani on Emanuelson and he was lucky not to be booked.
    • 90' Shot from Bojan from distance is gathered by Ujkani. Worth a go. Four added minutes here.
    • 89' Ilicic forward to Miccoli but he has two defenders on him and back come Milan in the hunt for a late, late winner.
    • 87' Bojan still causing problems aplenty for the Palermo defence but they eventually clear the danger.
    • 86' What a tense finish we have here to this game. The question is, will a draw be good enough to save Massimiliano Allegri?
    • 85' Mexes goes into the book for booting the ball away after he was adjudged to have fouled Miccoli.
    • 84' End to end stuff as now Palermo counter attack. It’s a furious finish here.
    • 83' Good challenge from Cetto on Emanuelson and it’s a goal kick.
    • 82' Bojan has acres of space down the right and crosses it in. Rios clears for a corner.
    • 81' Miccoli has a shot but it’s comfortable for Amelia.
    • 80' Who is to say Milan can’t go on and win this now. Palermo really have gone defensive since being in total control.
    • 79' GOAL Milan! Ujkani is indecisive in his clearance, flapping straight to El Shaarawy who fires home. He may have rescued Massimiliano Allegri.
    • 78' Emanuelson whips in a ball and Ujkani opts to punch clear. Morganella penalised and Milan have another free kick.
    • 77' Ilicic breaks forward down the right but Miccoli just didn’t have the legs to make a run. Cetto to the rescue at the other end.
    • 76' Miccoli still looks a little wary on his feet. He’s had a great game though.
    • 75' It’s all Milan at the moment and you wouldn’t put it past them to rescue at least a point.
    • 74' Brienza had been causing all sorts of problems but Miccoli is now too isolated. Cetto booked for a foul on Bojan.
    • 73' Constant takes on Morganella but Palermo win the throw.
    • 72' Bojan and Emanuelson have looked very lively since coming on and now it is Milan who look the more likely to score.
    • 71' Miccoli looks in trouble clutching his hamstring and Palermo have made all their substitutions. He’s trying to run it off.
    • 70' How and why Palermo have switched off so alarmingly since their second is a mystery. Taking off Brienza looks a mistake.
    • 69' GOAL Milan! Bojan plays in Montolivowho fires past Ujkani via a slight deflection. Game on!
    • 68' Milan take a very quick free kick and Abate plays it across goal to El Shaarawy who really should have side footed into an empty net but he misses the ball completely!
    • 67' Palermo sub: Garcia off for Cetto.
    • 66' Bojan runs at the Palermo defence who back off and back off, he passes when perhaps he could have shot and the chance is gone.
    • 65' Ilicic very nearly plays in Morganella. His shot is blocked.
    • 64' Fantastic save from Ujkani from Emanuelson’s free kick. That was headed for the top corner. Palermo inviting trouble at the moment.
    • 63' Garcia is lucky. He has already been booked and could have gone for that one.
    • 62' Bojan fouled by Garcia. Free kick.
    • 61' Milan currently enjoying most of the possession as Palermo happy to play from deep and invite them on.
    • 59' Better spell from Milan. Abate’s cross cleared by Mantovani.
    • 57' Great run and shot from Bojan and Amelia parries away for a corner. Few and far between from Milan though.
    • 56' And Brienza comes off to be replaced by Giorgi.
    • 55' Brienza squares to Ilicic and he fires just over the bar. Milan now wary of Brienza.
    • 54' Allegri has really rolled the dice here. That’s the end of three at the back and they could leave themselves very open now.
    • 53' Milan sub: Pato off for Krkic. Pazzini on for Yepes.
    • 52' Allegri looks a very worried man as Emanuelson and Abate get things all wrong and the ball runs out of play.
    • 50' As it stands, Palermo are level on points with Milan.
    • 49' POSSESSION: PALERMO 53% - 47% MILAN
    • 48' This has been a disjointed performance for Milan and they’ve never looked like scoring and that must be a worry.
    • 47' GOAL Palermo! And it’s a fantastic finish from Brienza into the far corner. Again Miccoli at the centre of it. Cracking left foot finish though.
    • 46' Defeat here for Milan and you have to feel that Allegri would struggle to keep his job.
    • 45' We’re back underway here and Milan have made a change already. Emanuelson comes on for Flamini.
    • HALF TIME: Palermo 1-0 AC Milan
    • 45+1' El Shaarawy heads tamely wide.
    • 45' GOAL Palermo! And it’s Miccoli who slots it past Amelia. No more than they have deserved!
    • 44' Miccoli again causing problems in the box as Abate is penalised for a hand ball. Penalty given!
    • 42' El Shaarawy jumps to get a header in at the far post and forces Ujkani to smuggle it away.
    • 41' Morganella chases but the ball runs just out of play. Goal kick.
    • 40' A little too much on Garcia’s pass for Ilicic. More good play though.
    • 39' Miccoli plays in Morganella who is clumsily fouled by El Shaarawy falling down in the box. Again seen them given as penalties but Milan survive again.
    • 37' Rios fouled by Flamini with a high boot. Looked nasty and he’s already been booked. The referee lets it go though.
    • 36' Montolivo takes but Yepes is penalised for a foul.
    • 35' Ten minutes until half time and Palermo have definitely been the better side. Montolivo wins a free kick.
    • 33' Misunderstanding between Pato and Nocerino and it drifts out for a goal kick. More poor play from Milan.
    • 32' Miccoli takes and it just flashes wide. Amelia looked beaten all ends up!
    • 31' Flamini brings down Ilicic just outside the box. He goes into the book and this is now a good chance for Palermo.
    • 30' Long shot from Nocerino well gathered by Ujkani.
    • 29' Brienza again just fails to play in Miccoli who may have controlled with his arm anyway. Milan look a bit devoid of ideas.
    • 28' Morganella crosses in buy Yepes clears. Palermo still doing much of the pressing and playing the better stuff.
    • 26' Palermo have really warmed to this and are unlucky not to be ahead.
    • 25' Great ball from Brienza to Morganella. Constant wins it back but gives it straight to Miccoli who shoots just over although the keeper may have touched it. Another good chance.
    • 23' Miccoli plays the free kick into Garcia but his header floats just over.
    • 22' Constant goes into the book for a bad challenge with his studs up.
    • 21' Lovely pass from Montolivo to Flamini but his shot is blocked out for a corner. It falls to Nocerino who cracks it straight at the keeper.
    • 20' El Shaarawy wins a corner as Miunoz comes across to block.
    • 18' Miccoli takes and Amelia is forced to parry into the air before connecting. Decent strike.
    • 17' Hand ball against Yepes and Palermo have another free kick in a dangerous area.
    • 16' Palermo have settled the better and Miccoli is looking dangerous already.
    • 15' Super ball from Ilicic finds Miccoli but he fires just wide under pressure from Bonera. Great chance!
    • 14' El Shaarawy goes down under a challenge from Ilicic and Palermo sportingly play it out. He’s back on his feet though.
    • 12' Foul by Mexes. Palermo have a free kick. Pato caught offside.
    • 11' Great run from Ilicic but his cross does not reach Miccoli and Milan clear. El Shaarawy wins a corner.
    • 9' Shot from Miccoli from distance well over the bar.
    • 8' Constant comes across Brienza who goes down in the box. Nothing given. Seen them given though.
    • 7' Montolivo sitting just in front of the back three with Montolivo and Nocerino making runs ahead of him.
    • 6' In fact he has been replaced by Von Bergen.
    • 5' It looks like Donati is already struggling and may be replaced soon.
    • 4' Brilliant play from Pato who gets to the byline and ghosts past Donati easily. Palermo survive.
    • 3' El Shaarawy caught just offside. Promising start from the hosts though.
    • 2' Bonera fouls Miccoli after running across him. Free kick Palermo. Miccoli takes but Milan clear. He is shown the yellow card.
    • 1' Referee Nicola Rizzoli blows the whistle to get us underway here. A vitally important game to both teams but maybe moreso for AC Milan as defeat would put Allegri’s position under even more threat. Palermo playing a 4-3-3, Milan a 3-5-2.
    • 19.40 The visitors and the Sicilian's have each won five of their last 10 clashes with each other in Serie A. AC Milan won the last time out in Palermo with a convincing 4-0 scoreline.
    • 19.35 Stephan El Shaarawy has enjoyed a prolific start to his season, sitting joint-top of the Serie A goalscorers chart with six to his name.
    • 19.30 AC Milan currently sit 11th in the table and will look to kick on from their home win against Genoa at the weekend. Palermo, meanwhile, are a lowly 18th and have only scored on three occasions.
    • 19.25 It appears that Massimiliano Allegri has reverted to a 3-5-2 with Pato and El Shaarawy up front instead of the 3-4-3 system recently employed.
    • 19.20 PALERMO: Ujkani; Von Bergen, Donati, Mantovani; Morganella, Rios, Barreto, Garcia; Ilicic, Giorgi; Miccoli /// AC MILAN: Amelia; Mexes, Bonera, Yepes; Abate, Flamini, Montolivo, Nocerino, Constant; Pato, El Shaarawy.
