  • It was the sort of assist we've come to expect from Giroud. The striker cushioned a powerful cross and delicately rolled it back to Kessie who did the rest! Giroud is just excellent at linking play inside the box.

  • GOALLL! BAJRAMI! 1-1. Milan's lead doesn't last long. The visitors fail to clear their lines and eventually Henderson is able to send another cross into the box. Kessie flicks it out to Bajrami who's waiting at a tight angle, 18 yards from goal. The attacker catches everyone out and fires a rasping effort that bobbles through Maignan before nestling low into the far corner!

  • KESSIE AGAIN! 2-1. Milan retake the lead. Saelemaekers plays a simple pass to Kessie inside the box, and the midfielder drives towards the byline before drilling a low shot through the legs of Vicario! It was a powerful strike, but the goalkeeper should have done better.

  • And Florenzi makes it 3-1! Milan extend their lead. Saelemaekers is tripped by Simone Romagnoli, presenting Milan with a promising free-kick 25 yards from goal. Florenzi steps up and curls a weak strike that sneaks through the wall before nestling into the bottom corner! The wall simply crumbled, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance.

  • Theo makes it four! 4-1 Milan. That should seal it for the visitors. Saelemaekers whips in another inviting cross from his right foot and it bounces off Marchizza's arm before falling to Theo. The wingback composes himself, before thundering in a volley from six yards.
