  • 100 ET

  • 96 ET

    Dead-ball specialist Pirlo, who scored twice from similar distance against Scotland in Italy's last outing, lines up the free-kick and fires it. Well over the bar.

  • 92 ET

  • The first period of extra time begins.
  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • 89
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    Milan have a habit of stealing matches late on - they did so twice against PSV in the semi-finals - and almost do so again here when Kaká just fails to direct Stam's header inside the post.

  • Substitution
    86
    Serginho (in) - Seedorf (out) (Milan)

    85
    Tomasson (in) - Crespo (out) (Milan)
    One of three Milan players with Premeirship experience, the former Newcastle United FC striker has the habit of scoring crucial late goals and Ancelotti will hope for more of the same as the two-goal hero makes way.
  • Substitution
    85
    Cissé (in) - Baroš (out) (Liverpool)
    Twice a goalscorer in his last outing against Villa, Cissé enters the fray with the match looking to be heading towards extra time.
  • 84
    Baroš (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Cafu (Milan).

  • 82
    Shevchenko (Milan) misses the target.
  • Yellow Card
    81
    Baroš (Liverpool) is cautioned by the referee.

  • 81
    Baroš (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Nesta (Milan).

    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    Moments after Luis García disappointingly failed to cushion a raking long ball from Gerrard, Crespo finds space in the inside-right channel before pulling the ball back towards Kaká. The Brazilian playmaker gets a shot in but Carragher is on hand to make a suberb last-gasp block.
  • 79
    Baroš (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Nesta (Milan).
    The Czech youngster has had a vibrant presence in the second half, holding the line well and leading the line with forcefulness. He uses a little too much force here, however, and is penalised leaning into Nesta.
  • Yellow Card
    76
    Carragher (Liverpool) is booked.
    The central defender, considered by many to be Liverpool's player of the season, becomes the first player to enter the referee's book after a mis-timed challenge.
  • 76
    Carragher (Liverpool) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Shevchenko (Milan).
  • 75
    Crespo (Milan) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Xabi Alonso (Liverpool).
    Despite his 16 goals in all competitions, including the two goals in the 1-0 wins over Manchester United FC, the striker has been on the fringes of the Milan side all season and after his two-goal burst at the end of the first half, he appears to have returned there, making a rare appearance to foul Liverpool's third goalscorer.

  • 70
    Traoré (Liverpool) makes a save.
  • 70
    Shevchenko (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    The 28-year-old former Dynamo Kyiv FC striker almost capitalises on some awful goalkeeping by Dudek. The goalkeeper, only the third Pole to play in the European Cup final after Zbigniew Boniek (Juventus in 1985) and Jozef Mlynarczyk (FC Porto in 1987), fumbles a low cross into the path of Shevchenko whose strike is going in before an excellent goal-line clearance from Traoré.

  • 63
    Dida (Milan) makes a save.
  • 63
    John Arne Riise (Liverpool) has an effort on goal.
    Liverpool's three-goal comeback in the space of just six minutes has understandably ignited the English side and the normally sluggish Riise suddenly finds some pace and strikes a powerful effort that forces Dida to save.
  • 62
    Seedorf (Milan) misses the target.
    The Dutch midfield player, three times a winner with three different clubs (AFC Ajax, Real Madrid CF and Milan), is desperately seekign a fourth and looks to edge his side back in front with a powerful shot from the edge of area, but drags his effort wide.

  • 61

  • 57
    Gerrard (Liverpool) delivers the corner.
  • Goal
    56
    Šmicer (Liverpool) scores!
    The English side are right back in this match after a superb low drive from substitute Šmicer means there is now just one goal in this. A slow build up from Liverpool looked to have run into a dead end before the former Czech Republic international, out of contract at Anfield this summer, fires a superb shot low to Dida's right.
  • Goal
    54
    Gerrard (Liverpool) scores!
    The Liverpool captain gives his side hope with an excellent header, rising to meet John Arne Riise well-weighted cross and directing the ball into the far corner.
  • 53

  • 53

  • 50
    Xabi Alonso (Liverpool) misses the target.

  • 49
    Maldini (Milan) has a shot blocked.

  • 46
    Kaká (Milan) has a shot blocked.
    The Brazilian playmaker, who has struggled at times this season, looks to have peaked at an ideal time this evening. His form would have to astonishing to score from 35 metres whilst surrounded by red shirts, however.
  • Substitution
    46
    Hamann (in) - Finnan (out) (Liverpool)
    The vastly experienced German international has won the UEFA Cup with FC Bayern München (1996) and Liverpool (2001) enters the fray.

  • Goal
    44
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    The on-loan Chelsea FC striker takes his season's tally to six with a sublime strike. Kaká is again the provider, turning well on the halfway line, taking a touch and then slotting a perfectly-weighted ball into the path of Crespo. With time and space the 29-year-old delicately chips the ball over Dudek to help Milan tighten their grip on the cup.
  • 42
    Baroš (Liverpool) fouls.
  • 41

  • 40
    Seedorf (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Xabi Alonso (Liverpool).
  • Goal
    39
    Crespo (Milan) scores!
    Moments after Luis García almost works a way through the Milan defence, Hernán Crespo doubles Milan's lead after good work from Kaká and Shevchenko. The Brazilian playmaker carries the ball into the Liverpool half before lifting the ball into the path of Shevchenko. He unselfishly passes the ball to the far post where Crespo is on hand to turn in.
  • 38
    Crespo (Milan) is flagged for offside.
  • 36
    Luis García (Liverpool) misses the target.
    Liverpool's top scorer in the competition with six goals this season, the 26-year-old gets on the end of his side's best move of the half. Gerrard's crossfield ball is headed into the path of the midfield player by Baroš but on his unfavoured right foot, he screws his effort wide.
  • 34
    Baroš (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Nesta (Milan).
  • 33
    Luis García (Liverpool) misses the target.
    The former FC Barcelona midfield player is starting to find more advanced positions and works space for a shot on the edge of the box before blasting his effort well over the bar.
  • 32
    Baroš (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Stam (Milan).
  • 32
    Dudek (Liverpool) makes a save.
  • 32
    Shevchenko (Milan) has an effort on goal.
    The 28-year-old, the current holder of the Ballon D'Or, takes advantage of some lax defending by Traoré. With the Liverpool back line moving up as one, the left-back plays Shevchenko onside but then recovers to put pressure on the striker whose shot is smothered by Dudek.
  • 30
    Finnan (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Crespo (Milan).
  • 30
    Baroš (Liverpool) misses the target.
    The Czech striker fires his first shot of the game, a bouncing effort on the edge of the box - ten metres over the crossbar.
  • 29
    Shevchenko (Milan) is flagged for offside.
    It nearly was, however, as Milan launched a quick break up the middle before the ball is laid off to Shevchenko. The Ukrainian striker slides the ball past Jerzy Dudek in the Liverpool goal and his celebration reaches the corner flag before he spots that the assistant referee's flag is raised.
  • 28
    Šmicer (Liverpool) is penalised for a foul on Kaká (Milan).
    The substitute concedes only Liverpool's second foul of the match. The first led to Milan's opening goal but being on the halfway line, Šmicer's error is unlikely to prove as costly.
  • 26
    Crespo (Milan) is flagged for offside.
    Much of the game is being played in midfield at the moment, with both side's looking to pack the centre of the park before feeding long balls to their strikers. Crespo is penalised for drifting offside as he seeks to meet one such pass.
  • 24
    Baroš (Liverpool) is flagged for offside.
  • Substitution
    23

    Milan have conceded a host of fouls in the opening quarter as they look to deprive their opponents of any space, with Stam the latest culprit.
  • 19
    Gattuso (Milan) is penalised for a foul on Kewell (Liverpool).
    Kewell, a surprise selection in the Liverpool lineup, appears to be struggling with a leg injury and a hefty challenge from the tenacious Gennaro Gattuso will hardly help.
  • 18
    Kaká (Milan) misses the target.
    Amazingly, although the two clubs have jointly played over 500 European matches, they have never met in UEFA club competitions. Milan look like they have been watching Liverpool all season, starving the English side of possession and launching wave after wave of attack. Here Cafu's cross is directed just wide by Pirlo.
  • 14
    Luis García (Liverpool) makes a save.
  • 14
    Crespo (Milan) has an effort on goal.

  • 14
    Seedorf (Milan) takes the corner.
  • 14
    Shevchenko (Milan) fouls.
    The Ukrainian striker has already racked up eight goals in this season's competition and looks determined to add to that tally tonight, almost breaking through the middle. But under pressure from Jamie Carragher, he is penalised for handball.

  • 4
    John Arne Riise (Liverpool) has a shot blocked.
    Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard strikes the corner to the edge of the penalty box where the Norwegian international Riise hits a firm shot straight at a wall of white shirts.
