Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    After an incipid first half, Milan end the second in buoyant mood after sealing their progress to the knockout round. Two goals in as many minutes from Kaká and Crespo calmed Ancelotti's side after they had endured a difficult start to the second half with Aghahowa and Matuzalem both going close. Both added further goals in the final stages as Milan go top of Group F with their biggest win of the season. They are now two-points clear of Barcelona who were held by Celtic in the section's other game tonight; a result that leaves Shakhtar at the foot of the table.
  • Goal
    90+2
    Kaká (Milan) scores!
    The Brazilian grabs his second of the evening right at the end of the game when Dhorasoo launches a counter and threads through to Kaká, who skilfully beats Srna with a drag back before slotting the ball to Laštuvka's left.

    Kaká (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 86
    Kaká (Milan) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
    Another goal and Milan will have their biggest margin of victory this season, but Kaká is too keen and drifts well offside with the home side looking threatening.
  • Goal
    85
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    The Argentinian hits his second and Milan's third of the night when Kaká bamboozles Stoican at right-back and floats an excellent cross to the back post. Seedorf's header is blocked on the line but the ball falls for Crespo who has the easiest of tap-ins to seal the win.

    Seedorf (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    It is all the home team at the moment as Shakhtar struggle to contain their marauding front-line. The architect of both goals, Rui Costa, makes a run to the by-line before cutting the ball back to Seedorf in space in the middle but Laštuvka is again alert and saves well at his right-hand post.

    53
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    After looking incapable of penetrating the Shakhtar defence for the first 51 minutes, Milan manage it twice in a minute. Again it is Rui Costa who unlocks the back-line with a beautifully-timed pass that dissects three defenders before Crespo, who was also on target at the weekend, ran around the goalkeeper and applied a cool finish.
  • Goal
    52
    Kaká (Milan) scores!
    The Brazilian breaks the deadlock after starting and finishing a lovely move. The 22-year-old receives the ball on the right flank and passes a short pass to Rui Costa, who in turn lobs the ball into the path of Cafu and after the right-back draws Laštuvka, he squares for Kaká to head into the empty net.
  • 52
    Laštůvka (Shakhtar Donetsk) makes a save.
  • 52
    Cafu (Milan) has an effort on goal.

  • 46
    Aghahowa (Shakhtar Donetsk) misses the target.
    The best chance of the game, less than 30 seconds into the second half, when a long ball forward pierces Maldini and Alessandro Costacurta and falls for Julius Aghahowa who drills a shot narrowly wide under pressure from both defenders.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Shakhtar have never drawn a Champions League match and kick-off the second half lookubg for the win that would retain that record.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    The sides go in for the interval with the scores level. In truth, neither team looked like breaking the deadlock though Dida was the busiest goalkeeper. With Celtic equalising at Barcelona on the stroke of half-time in the section's other match, Milan will know that a win tonight would not only seal their place in the knockout round, but also help them towards top spot. Shakhtar, of course, must win to remain in contention.
  • 45+1
    Rui Costa (Milan) misses the target.
    The Portuguese playmaker has a similar effort, with Shakhtar's defence this time retreating and although his intelligent switched-shot leaves Laštuvka flat-footed, the ball rolls narrowly wide.
  • 45
    Dida (Milan) makes a save.
  • 45
    Aghahowa (Shakhtar Donetsk) has an effort on goal.

  • 43
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    Another hopeful long-range effort from Kaká and Milan who are yet to breach Shakhtar's robust back-line.
  • 42
    Hübschman (Shakhtar Donetsk) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Crespo (Milan).
    Milan are enjoying their best spell of the game as the half draws to a close and Hübschman, who has looked combersome at times, is penalised for a foul on Crespo.
  • 40
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    The 22-year-old playmaker has another long-range effort, this time from at least 25 metres, following another clever back-heel from the deceptively skillful Seedorf, but his effort goes well wide.

  • 38
    Laštůvka (Shakhtar Donetsk) makes a save.

    Rui Costa (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    Milan continue to attack lethargically as they wait for any of the six or seven players who rush behind the ball whenever Shakhtar are in possession to support the front men.

  • 35

  • 34
    Nesta (Milan) makes a save.

  • 32
