  • MILAN LEAD! Finally ending their goal drought, the Rossoneri go in front, as Leao finishes a sweeping move with a back-post finish. After Kalulu - only deputising at right-back today - slung an inviting cross in from the flank, the Portuguese flyer stormed into the area and turned the ball into the bottom corner! It's Milan 1-0 Genoa!

  • Though his side have improved a little, Blessin still sees fit to make a couple of early changes in the second half. First, the ineffective Ekuban makes way for Melegoni.

  • Lunging recklessly into a challenge on Vasquez, Tonali becomes the first Milan player booked. He is always a combative presence in midfield, but that tackle was a little too forceful for the referee.

  • A rare bright light amid another dull display for Milan, Leao is replaced by the more defensive option of Ballo-Toure on the left.

  • MILAN WRAP IT UP! Making an impact from the bench, Messias receives the ball from Rebic on the right side of the six-yard box and fires at goal. Though Sirigu makes an excellent initial save down to his left, the Brazilian reacts first to slam the ball into the roof of the net for Milan's second goal. It's 2-0 to the Rossoneri - surely game over!
