General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 A scramble in the Milan area and Bologna almost fashion a final chance! However, in the chaotic mess, the Rossoneri manage to clear their lines and breathe a HUGE sigh of relief!
90' +3 El Shaarawy shoots from 25 yards but what would have been a show-stealing goal should it have curled in goes a few inches wide of the right post, much to Agliardi's belief.
90' +2 Milan decide they want to camp out in their own half and defend for these final couple of minutes. Bologna are just prodding around the outer edge of the Milan defence without ever threatening to penetrate.
90' As 4 minutes of stoppage time are announced, it's time to give my Man of the Match award! It's an easy one today, it can't be anybody other than Giampaolo Pazzini! He had the best chance of the first half with a fine header, showed poaching prowess to propel Milan into a lead then showed how quality he can be with a sublime second strike with less than 10 minutes to go, finishing off the tie in essence.
89' Bologna might have got a goal back but they haven't shown the slightest sign of threatening since the own goal.
87' Boss Chico tweeted: "Not impressed. Berlusconi and Galliani still gotta go." Sadly for this tweeter, I can't see the owner and the vice-president of Milan being forced out of their own club any time soon...
86' Well, well, well! We could have quite the finale now at San Siro!
84' P. Mexès is unfortunate, scores an own goal!
GOAL!! Philippe Mexes has put the ball into the back of his own net! It's desperately unlucky from the AC Milan defender, who is helpless as Bologna substitute Pasquato nods a cross from the left wing onto his planted foot, and it dribbles into the bottom right-hand corner. Milan 2-1 Bologna!
82' G. Pazzini has scored a goal for Milan! Assist by K. Boateng.
GOAL!! Great striker from the striker, who scores his - and AC Milan's second of the game, and wow what a goal it is! Tight control inside the area, looping the ball over his marker after superb control then lashing it in from 10 yards and celebrating wildly! Milan 2-0 Bologna!
81' Bakaye Traoré enters the game and replaces M. Flamini.
Christian Pasquato, on loan from Udinese, skids the free kick a foot or so over the bar after choosing to shoot from the acute angle. Chance wasted for the visitors.
