  • MILAN TAKE THE LEAD AND DO THEY DESERVE IT! 1-0! Bennacer spots the far-post run of Hernandez and delivers a perfect cross to the full-back. The captain chests it down ahead of Amian and coolly beats the goalkeeper at his near post!

  • SPEZIA FIND THE EQUALISER! OF COURSE IT’S MALDINI! 1-1! Milan fail to clear a corner, with Diaz putting his volley into the chest of Reca. The substitute takes the ball to the left wing and lays it off for Maldini, who takes a touch and curls a superb shot into the far corner!

  • GIROUD SENT OFF! It's a moment of madness from the striker, who forgets he's on a yellow card as he takes his shirt off in celebration! The striker's face goes from joy to pain as he realises his mistake having already been carded as he's shown a second yellow and given his marching orders!
