General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 Great spirit from this Milan side but it has all come too late! Desperate defending from the hosts and they just manage to clear their lines late on with El Shaarawy lurking. What a game this has been!
90' Roma are all over the place! Bojan has made a real difference since coming on and he feints his way past a few Roma defenders on the edge of the box but a white Milan shirt cannot turn in his dangerous cross. Zeman's side hanging on!
88' Bojan has scored a goal for Milan!
MILAN SCORE ANOTHER!!! What a finish we have in store! Almost straight from the kick-off, Milan win the ball back and El Shaarawy whips in a superb cross from the left, picking out Pazzini whose header from close range forces a world-class reflex save from Goicoechea, but Bojan is on hand to slot home the rebound against his former club. Late drama here at the Stadio Olimpico!
87' Penalty goal scored by G. Pazzini for Milan!
M. Goicoechea gets yellow.
MILAN PULL ONE BACK! Sulley Muntari's piledriver is parried by Goicoechea and Pazzini responds quickest, taking the ball around the goalkeeper before being hauled down. The Uruguayan is fortunate not to be dismissed and from the resulting spotkick, Pazzini picks himself up to smash it down the middle. Surely just a consolation?
86' That sums up Milan's night! The Rossoneri win a corner and with bodies in the middle, El Shaarawy decides to clip it back to the edge of the box but he miscues his effort and the opportunity breaks down.
84' Four goals ahead, Miralem Pjanic dismisses the advice of De Rossi and decides to take on a freekick from distance. He strikes the ball with venom but it cannot beat the wall and Sulley Muntari subsequently receives treatment as the ball strikes him in the face.
82' To a chorus of boos, Bojan looks to inflict damage against his former club but his teasing cutback from the byline cannot find a teammate in the box.
81' P. Mexès gets yellow.
Philippe Mexes picks up a yellow card which means that he will now be suspended for the clash against Siena in January.
80' A. Romagnoli enters the game and replaces F. Totti.
Francesco Totti receives a standing ovation as he is sacrificed in place of 17-year-old defender Alessio Romagnoli. Zeman clearly not willing to take any risks.
78' Marquinhos goes off after a red card!
MARQUINHOS SENT OFF! The 18-year-old Brazilian has dealt with El Shaarawy excellently today but he receives his marching orders when the referee deems that his deliberate handball prevents a clear goalscoring opportunity. It looks harsh but the Milan striker was bearing down on goal. Surely too late for the Rossoneri though?
