    The final whistle is blown.
  • 90+1
    Ronaldo (Man. United) delivers the corner.
  • 90+1
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    The Portuguese winger wins a corner but with one of the two minutes of added time already played, it is too little too late for United.
  • 89
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • Substitution
    88
    Costacurta (in) - Gattuso (out) (Milan)
    A third substitution for Milan, and no more attacking than the last two as Gattuso limps off to be replaced by 38-year-old Alessandro Costacurta.
  • 86
    Cafu (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The Brazilian almost completes a sublime Milan move as he once again eschews his side's supposed defensive-minded formation and meets the ball at the back post, but not for the first time tonight, Heinze blocks his effort.
  • Substitution
    85
    Dhorasoo (in) - Rui Costa (out) (Milan)
    The playmaker is replaced by perennial substitute Vikash Dhorasoo.
  • Substitution
    85
    Smith (in) - Brown (out) (Man. United)
    A last throw of the dice for Sir Alex, bringing on another striker.
  • 84
    Gattuso (Milan) misses the target.
    After a lovely run to the edge of the box, Gattuso threads the ball through to Kaká, whose clever back-heel re-finds the combative midfield player but under pressure from Heinze, the ball rolls wide of the upright.
  • 83
    Ambrosini (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    Like Fortune, Massimo Ambrosini's first impact after coming on as a substitute is the concession of a foul.
  • 81
    Scholes (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ambrosini (Milan).
  • 81
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    The 19-year-old, who has yet to add to the hat-trick of goals he scored on his Champions League debut, never looks like doing so here as he blasts an effort high and wide.
  • 80
    Rooney (Man. United) takes the free-kick.
  • 80
    Pirlo (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Scholes (Man. United).
    The former England midfield player wins a free-kick in a dangerous position just outside the box after drawing Pirlo into the challenge.
  • Substitution
    78
    Ambrosini (in) - Crespo (out) (Milan)
    Ancelotti could well be content with a one-goal win as he withdraws his lone striker and brings on another midfield player.
  • 77
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    If the scores stay how they are, United will lose for the third time in succession for the first time in their UEFA club competition history. Kaká tries to ensure this is the case with a long-range effort that drifts just over the bar.
  • 75
    Crespo (Milan) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 75
    Fortune (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Rui Costa (Milan).

    Rooney (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Stam (Milan).
  • 74
    Ronaldo (Man. United) misses the target.
    From on Portuguese playmaker to another and this time Ronaldo's shot from long distance is much better - just five metres wide.
  • 72
    Rui Costa (Milan) misses the target.
    The Portuguese playmaker shapes to hit a spectacular volley. Unfortunately, he shapes far too early, however, and his effort balloons high and wide.
  • 71
    Pirlo (Milan) delivers the corner.
  • 70
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) misses the target.
    A great opportunity for the man with such a great scoring record in the competition after Quinton Fortune finds him in space five metres out but the Netherlands striker cannot get the ball down quick enough and after what seems like an age, drags his effort wide.
  • 68
    Crespo (Milan) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
    The goalscorer and scurge of the United defence almost makes it three in two games in the tie as he meets Rui Costa's well-weighted cross at the backpost but Ferdinand makes a sublime intervention before the assistant referee flags for offside anyway.
  • 67
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    After his frustration at Ronaldo earlier greediness, Rooney shows similar voracity as he hits a difficult volley just wide of the target after making excellent contact.

    Gattuso (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 65
    Ronaldo (Man. United) misses the target.
    The Portuguese midfield player finds space in midfield but with Rooney and Van Nistelrooij well placed in advanced positions, he opts to go it alone and hits a tepid drive rolls well wide of the mark.
  • 64
    Crespo (Milan) is flagged for offside.
  • 64
    Rooney (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Maldini (Milan).
    The England striker must gain a real foothold in this game if the visitors are to overturn the tie.
  • Goal
    61
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    Milan have been threatening to score ever since the restart and Crespo leaves United with a mountain to climb when he peels off Ferdinand at the back post and meets Cafu's cross with a wonderful header that Howard can do nothing about as it drifts inside the post.
  • 60
    Rui Costa (Milan) takes the corner.
  • 60
    Seedorf (Milan) has a shot blocked.

  • 56
    Pirlo (Milan) takes the corner.
  • 55
    Gattuso (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The prickly midfield player has an effort from distance and wins his team possession before urging the home side's fans to raise their voices.
  • 55
    Cafu (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Van Nistelrooy (Man. United).
    With Giggs receiving treatment on the sidelines after an accidental elbow from Gattuso, Van Nistelrooij almost joins him following a heavy challenge from Cafu.
  • 54
    Ronaldo (Man. United) misses the target.
  • 52
    Cafu (Milan) misses the target.
    After breaking up Giggs' attack by his own corner flag, Cafu feeds the ball to Pirlo before the indefatigable 35-year-old sprints down the wing, eventually receiving possession back inside the United area. However, he opts to shoot from a narrow angle to Crespo's visible chagrin.
  • 50
    Kaká (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The second half has begun brightly, with the United defence being called upon to make a number of important interventions. Here, it is Heinze's turn as Kaká shoots from the edge of the box.
  • 48
    Gattuso (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Heinze (Man. United).
  • 48

    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
  • 45
    Giggs (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Maldini (Milan).
    The winger has been called upon to help his back-line a number of times tonight, and has done a ood job but on this occasion his challenge on Maldini, making a rare run down the left flank, is mistimed.
  • 44
    Scholes (Man. United) fouls.
  • 42
    Crespo (Milan) is flagged for offside.
    The striker, on loan from English side Chelsea FC, is needlessly caught offside from the throw-in.
  • 42
    Rui Costa (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The Portuguese playmaker also fashions an opportunity as the United defence back off and but for the late intervention of Silvestre, Howard could have been severly tested.
  • 40
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) misses the target.
    The Dutch striker, who has scored a remarkable 36 goals in 38 games in this competition, has his first effort on goal tonight, connecting with Rooney's header into his path but with Dida sprawling at his feet, he could not keep the ball down.
  • 39
    Maldini (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 38
    Cafu (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Heinze (Man. United).
  • 37
    Kaká (Milan) hits the crossbar.
    This time Milan are denied by the woodwork as Silvestre fails to control the ball, which hits his shin and rolls to the Kaká near the apex of the penalty area and the Brazilian playmaker strikes a powerful half-volley that grazes the bar.
  • 36
    Cafu (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Giggs (Man. United).
    Cafu was Milan's best attacking outlet in the first leg, and continues to threaten with his robust runs down the right flank but Giggs has been asked to support Heinze at full-back. The Welsh international is doing well in the role and after tackling his opponent, he wins a foul a tug on his shirt.
  • 33
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    The Brazilian playmaker capitalises on some lacklustre defending from Brown and brushes off the right-back's challenge before screwing a shot wide from just inside the box under pressure from Scholes.

  • 29
    Scholes (Man. United) takes the corner.

  • 28
    Giggs (Man. United) hits the post.
    United give the Italian side a timely warning, with Giggs utilising the space vacated by the ever-attacking Cafu at right-back and streaming into the area to collect a Van Nistelrooij pass before unleashing a powerful left-footed shot that comes back off the upright. Dida was well beaten.
  • 26
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
  • 25
