Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • 90+1
    Ambrosini (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Heinze (Man. United).
  • Substitution
    90
    Serginho (in) - Kaká (out) (Milan)
    A scorer as a substitute at the weekend, Serginho comes on with Ancelotti knowing that another here tonight will give his side a massive advantage to take to the San Siro.
  • 90
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) misses the target.
    The Netherlands striker looks a little rusty and should really have done better after meeting a superb cross at the back post. He is clearly out of touch though and his connection, off head and shoulder, drifts well wide.
  • 89
    Costacurta (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Heinze (Man. United).
  • 87
    Silvestre (Man. United) misses the target.
    United are piling men forward but with such an array of attacking talent on the pitch, Silvestre is not the person that you want on the end of a good move. He is, however, and his effort never threatens Dida's goal.
  • Substitution
    87
    Costacurta (in) - Cafu (out) (Milan)
    The 35-year-old Brazilian, who has had an excellent game, makes way for some fresh legs - 38-year-old Alessandro Costacurta, veteren of five Champions League finals.
  • 85
    Cafu (Milan) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 85
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    The 22-year-old Italian Player of the Season blazes another shot narrowly wide of Carroll's front post as United's defence begin to look ragged.
  • Substitution
    84
    Ambrosini (in) - Pirlo (out) (Milan)
    Perennial substitute Massimo Ambrosini enters the fray.
  • 84
    Rooney (Man. United) delivers the corner.
  • 83
    Dida (Milan) makes a save.
  • 83
    Giggs (Man. United) has an effort on goal.
    The Welsh winger floats a long free-kick towards the back post that Dida punches to safety.
  • 83
    Giggs (Man. United) takes the free-kick.
  • 83
    Pirlo (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Scholes (Man. United).
  • 81
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    The Brazilian playmaker has really come to life in the past 20 minutes and buoyed by his form he drives a shot just wide of the post while Rui Costa, free in the middle, bays at him.
  • 81
    Saha (Man. United) misses the target.
    The French striker almost makes an immediate impact, rising highest at the back post to meet a corner but his header drops just wide of the left upright.
  • Substitution
    80
    Saha (in) - Fortune (out) (Man. United)
    A double substitution for Ferguson with the forward-minded Mikaël Silvestre coming on for Gary Neville and another striker coming on for the impressive Fortune.
  • Substitution
    80
    Silvestre (in) - G. Neville (out) (Man. United)
  • 80
    Giggs (Man. United) delivers the corner.
  • Goal
    78
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    The Italian side take what could prove to be a vital lead after Carroll spills Seedorf's powerful drive. The Dutchman's shot is powerful and appears to swerve but the Northern Ireland keeper will be disappointed at failing to hold on to it and the ball fell straight in to the path of Crespo who powers the ball home for his third Champions League goal of the season.
  • 78
    Carroll (Man. United) makes a save.
  • 78
    Kaká (Milan) has an effort on goal.
  • 77
    Fortune (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Nesta (Milan).
  • 75
    Crespo (Milan) misses the target.
    The Argentinian striker should have given his side the lead after a lovely run and pass from Kaká. The Brazilian has been peripheral for much of the match but remains a danger and after cutting in from the left flank he threads a ball between four United players and into the path of Crespo. The 29-year-old takes a touch and fires a shot just over the bar.
  • 75
    Rooney (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Kaladze (Milan).
  • 74
    Rui Costa (Milan) misses the target.
    At the other end, Rui Costa's effort is not much better.
  • 73
    Fortune (Man. United) misses the target.
    The South African midfield player was on target against Everton on Saturday but never looks likely to make it two in a week with a lacklustre long-range effort.
  • 72
    Cafu (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Giggs (Man. United).
  • 71
    Giggs (Man. United) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 70
    Pirlo (Milan) delivers the corner.
    Save for Seedorf's early free-kick, neither side has looked potent from dead ball situations and another Milan corner - their seventh - is comfortably plucked oiut of the air by Carroll.
  • 68
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 68
    Crespo (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    A sublime attacking move from Milan, inviolving intricate one-touch passing from Rui Costa, Pirlo and Kaká before Crespo receives the ball in space, just inside the penalty box. The Argentinian manages to hit his first shot on target, where Brown, not for the first time, is standing to block.
  • 67
    Nesta (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Van Nistelrooy (Man. United).
    Van Nistelrooij's first impact since his long absence is a foul.
  • 66
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    The 19-year-old seems to have been lifted by the introduction of Van Nistelrooij, finding more space in front of the Milan back-four, Rooney hits a powerful drive. Dida's goal is never threatened, however, as the ball is always rising.
  • 64
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    The England striker spins on the edge of the box but cannot get enough purchase on the ball, which is sliced well wide.
  • Substitution
    63
    Van Nistelrooy (in) - Ronaldo (out) (Man. United)
    The Portuguese winger trudges off to be replaced by the Dutch striker who has already registered eight goals in this season's competition.
  • 62
    Seedorf (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Rooney (Man. United).
  • 56
    Rui Costa (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Scholes (Man. United).
  • 55
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
    Cafu is providing Mialn with their sole attacking outlet as Heinze is continuously drawn in to help his centre-backs. On this occasion, the 26-year-old Argentinian left-back cuts put his Brazilian counterpart's cross out at the expense of a corner.
  • 54
    Cafu (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Heinze (Man. United).
    The Argentinian full-back muscles Cafu off the ball and the Brazilian responds by needlessly btringing him down.
  • 52
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 52
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 50
    Giggs (Man. United) delivers the corner.
    Giggs' delivery fails to beat the first man as United's set-piece play continues to disappoint.
  • 50
    Keane (Man. United) misses the target.
    The ball eventually finds its way back to the United captain who has stayed up after the initial free-kick and his low drive flicks off Paolo Maldini's legs for a corner.
  • 50
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
  • 50
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the free-kick.
    Milan are much better at defending free-kicks and once again they rise in unison to block the Portuguese winger's right-footed effort.
  • 49
    Kaladze (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    The home side win another free-kick just outside the penalty box as the Milan defence struggle to contain Ronaldo.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Milan, who are still searching for their first win against English clubs on English soil, get the second period under way.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
  • Yellow Card
    45
    Fortune (Man. United) is booked.
    The South African midfield player has had an excellent half, but slightly sullies his efforts by becoming the first United player in the referees book after catching Pirlo late.
  • 45
    Fortune (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Pirlo (Milan).
  • 45
    Dida (Milan) makes a save.
  • 44
    Keane (Man. United) has an effort on goal.
    The home side are beginning to push further and further up the pitch with Roy Keane now leaving his defensive berth and completing a flowing move with a scuffed shot that goes straight to Dida.
  • 42
    Kaká (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The Brazilian playmaker is ostensibly far from impressed with Carroll as he continues to try is luck from range. Once again, his effort is blocked by a cohesive-looking United back-line.
  • 40
    Seedorf (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 37
    Kaká (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    Kaká hits a powerful shot straight at Brown who takes the blow bravely before collapsing to the floor. He is ok, however.
  • 37
    Fortune (Man. United) misses the target.
    A move that typifies the opening 36 minutes. Cafu delivers a dangerous-looking ball into the box that Gary Neville headers powerfully away. Ronaldo picks the ball up midway through his own half and with Rooney taking three defenders out with a clever run, the Portuguese youngster goes the other way and threads the ball to Fortune. With Dida advancing the South African chips the ball agonisingly wide of the right upright.
  • 33
    Kaladze (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    The Portuguese winger is having a disappointing match as Milan are defending very deep and Kakha Kaladze is giving him no space to perform his tricks. The Georgian gets a little too close on this occasion, however, and United win a free-kick.
  • 33
    Fortune (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Pirlo (Milan).
  • 31
    Rui Costa (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Scholes (Man. United).
  • 31
    Rooney (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
  • 31
    Rooney (Man. United) takes the free-kick.
    The 19-year-old's free-kick is disappointing, fired straight in to the wall and although the ball balloons high, a host of Milan shirts await its return to the ground and the visitors clear.
  • 30
    Nesta (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Giggs (Man. United).
  • Yellow Card
    30
    Nesta (Milan) is booked.
    Nesta makes a desperate lunge as Giggs threatens to break through the middle of the penalty box and misses the ball, though not the Welsh winger and United have a free-kick in a dangerous position.
  • 29
    Crespo (Milan) fouls.
    The man on loan from United's Premier League rivals Chelsea FC is penalised for a hand ball deep inside the home side's half.
  • 28
    Cafu (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 27
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    The free-kick is taken short to Ronaldo whose hopeful long-range shot never looks like penetrating a crowded penalty box.
  • 26
    Cafu (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Heinze (Man. United).
    Cafu, who has shown little discomfort at his late call up in to the side, makes a rare lapse as he momentarily loses the United left-back before bringing him down.
  • 26
    Kaká (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Keane (Man. United).
  • 24
    Rooney (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Nesta (Milan).
    Rooney is not renowned for his defensive ability. For good reason as his challenge on Nesta is the third he has attempted in the opening 25 minutes. It results in his third conceded foul.
  • 24
    Scholes (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Pirlo (Milan).
    Scholes concedes a free-kick just inside the Milan half for a petulent push as this match continues to be played at a frenetic pace.
  • 22
    Crespo (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on G. Neville (Man. United).
  • 21
    Carroll (Man. United) makes a save.
  • 21
    Pirlo (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    The midfielder tries his luck from distance, hitting a low drive that ricochets off the greasy surface - there was snowfall just before the game - but Northern Ireland stopper Carroll catches comfortably.
  • 20
    Seedorf (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    The 28-year-old, a scorer against FC Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 1, is penalised for catching the Portuguese winger late on halfway.
  • 19
    Heinze (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Kaká (Milan).
  • 17
    Pirlo (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The 25-year-old Italy international's free-kicks are in stark contrast to teammate Seedorf - left-footed, curling and unable to beat a strong United wall.
  • 17
    Pirlo (Milan) takes the free-kick.
  • 16
    Keane (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Kaká (Milan).
    The veteran defensive midfield player is penalised for catching Kaká Brazilian on the edge of the box. T
  • 14
    Ronaldo (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Gattuso (Milan).
    Rooney is not playing as a typical lone striker as he frequently tracks back to aid his midfield. Perhaps it would be better if he did not, however, as he concedes two fouls in as many minutes.
  • 13
    Rooney (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Nesta (Milan).
  • 13
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 12
    Rui Costa (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    It is really end-to-end stuff at the moment as Milan do their best to belie the notion that all Italian sides are defensive. A Rio Ferdinand mis-kick goes straight to Rui Costa on the edge of the box and the 32-year-old hits a powerful drive, which is very well blocked by Ferdinand's centre-back partner, Wes Brown.
  • 11
    Scholes (Man. United) misses the target.
    The former England international really should have given his side the lead. Fortune, who is enjoying a lively start to the match, nutmegs Alessandro Nesta on the left flank and cuts the ball back to Scholes who, with time and space, thrashes his volley wide with the goal gaping.
  • 10
    Heinze (Man. United) fouls.
  • 8
    Seedorf (Milan) hits the crossbar.
    The Dutch midfield player rifles a brilliant free-kick over the wall, which skims the crossbar with Roy Carroll well beaten.
  • 8
    Seedorf (Milan) takes the free-kick.
  • 7
    G. Neville (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Kaká (Milan).
    The England right-back concedes a dangerous free-kick, 30 metres out and reasonably central.
  • 5
    Gattuso (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Heinze (Man. United).
    Gattuso makes a typically robust challenge on the United full-back midway through his own half. Too robust according to Spanish referee Manuel Enrique Mejuto González.
  • 3
    Rui Costa (Milan) misses the target.
    Milan respond immediately and Kaká cleaverly flicks a Clarence Seedorf pass into the path of Rui Costa who powers the ball across goal with Crespo lurking ominously.
  • 3
    Scholes (Man. United) misses the target.
    United are finding a lot of space in the middle of the park and Paul Scholes runs unopposed before striking a ball just wide of Dida's left-hand upright from 18 metres.
  • 1
    Rui Costa (Milan) delivers the corner.
    Milan win a corner within the opening minute.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
    Jaap Stam suffered a hamstring injury in the pre-match warm-up so Cafu will start at right-back as former club United, wearing red shirts and black shorts, get the match under way. Milan are in all-white.
