    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      FULL-TIME! The referee blows the final whistle! Milan have won.
    • 45'
      HALF-TIME! That's it for the first period at the San Siro, in what has been a rather dull affair so far.
    • 90'
      DISALLOWED! Chievo think they have an equaliser, but it is chalked-off for a foul on Donnarumma. And it was a controversial decision, as it appears that there was very little contact between Pinzi and the young keeper.
    • 90'
      CLOSE! Adriano almost makes an immediate impact, twisting and turning before firing in a venomous strike that nestles into the side netting. Unlucky!
    • 45'
      Late pressure here from Milan. Bonaventura's corner finds Montolivo, whose shot is blocked wide. Cerci whips in the resulting set-piece, but Bonaventura's strike sails well wide.
    • 90'
      SI Luiz Adriano SO I. Abate
    • 90'
      Luiz Adriano enters play, replacing C. Bacca.
    • 90'
      Half-way through stoppage time at San Siro, as Carlos Bacca receives a standing ovation as he troops off to be replaced by Sunday's hero Luiz Adriano.
    • 0'
      Well, that's it from me for tonight. It has finished 1-0 to Milan at the San Siro, with Antonelli's second-half goal enough to see off Verona. Until next time, goodbye!
    • 0'
      That result means that Milan have now collected their first clean sheet of the season in Serie A, and Mijhalovic's side now move up to eighth. Chievo, meanwhile, have now lost three on the bounce, and stay in 11th place.
    • 0'
      Well after a dismal first-half, Milan really stepped up their display after the interval, with Antonelli's strike giving them their second-straight win. Chievo were poor throughout, but can consider themselves unlucky to have a goal disallowed during stoppage time.
    • 0'
      Milan did start to create some half-chances as the break approached, with Cerci the main threat to Chievo's goal. But it was the visitors who had the best chance of the half, Donnarumma doing well to parry Pellissier's close-range header over the crossbar.
    • 0'
      Not the finest half of football you will see, that is for sure. The adverse weather conditions have not helped, but both sides have been poor and neither team deserves to go in ahead at the interval.
    • 0'
      The teams are making their way onto the field now at a rain-soaked San Siro. Both sides are set up to attack, by the looks of the formations, and it promises to be another fiery encounter in Serie A.
    • 0'
      It's a second-straight Serie A start for Milan 'keeper Donnarumma. The 16-year-old is one of the youngest players to ever start a Serie A match, and impressed against Sassuolo. Can he maintain that form tonight?
    • 0'
      Rolando Maran makes five changes to the Chievo side who were beaten by Napoli at the weekend, obviously opting for fresher legs as his team push to end a two-match losing streak. The visitors sit just one point behind their hosts tonight, and have already caused two upsets this term - thumping Lazio

    • 0'
      So just the one change for the hosts, with Bertolacci replacing Poli in midfield. An attacking move, from the under-pressure Mijhalovic, who is in desperate need of another win to relieve some of the strain on his position. Milan had Luiz Adriano to thank on Sunday, as he came off the bench to nod h

      Hello and welcome to this LIVE text commentary of AC Milan's Serie A clash with Chievo at the San Siro. I'm Patric Ridge, and I'll be guiding you through all the action tonight.
    • 1'
      KICK-OFF! The referee blows his whistle and the visitors - in search of their first win against Milan in Serie A - get us under way.
    • 3'
      An early free-kick here for Chievo. Birsa delivers it in, but Donnarumma makes a comfortable save after it is flicked goalwards by Pellissier - the last Chievo player to score against Milan.
    • 5'
      Abate charges forward down the right and feeds Cerci. The former Atletico Madrid man drifts inside, but his pass to Bacca - who opened the scoring for Milan in their last fixture - is cut out by Radovanovic, who is making his first Chievo start since the first game of the season.
    • 7'
      STAT ATTACK: After taking six points from their first two matches this season, Chievo have only taken the same number of points from their last seven fixtures.
    • 9'
      Milan have started to get a foothold on proceedings now. They work it forward towards Bonaventura, who collides with Frey in the air. The Chievo defender comes off worse, and the medical staff are called on to treat him.
    • 10'
      Frey hobbles off for more treatment. Chievo switch play out towards Castro, but the winger shanks his cross and it sails out for a Milan goal kick.
    • 13'
      Milan are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league, and you can see why as there is a mix up at the back. Romagnoli finally gets it clear at the third attempt, but that was sloppy from the hosts.
    • 14'
      SI M. De Sciglio SO I. Abate
    • 14'
      I. Abate is replaced with M. De Sciglio.
    • 15'
      While Frey seems to have made a recovery since his early knock, it is Milan who have been forced into an early change, with Abate limping off to be replaced by De Sciglio.
    • 17'
      Another free-kick for Chievo. They play it short this time, and are rewarded as Birsa's cross is deflected wide for a corner. His subsequent delivery falls at the feet of Pinzi, who lets loose from range, but Milan's young stopper is equal to the shot.
    • 20'
      Another stoppage in play now, with another Chievo man down hurt. The rain is causing havoc here. Milan restart play and patiently play it out from the back, but Chievo knick in and attempt to counter...
    • 22'
      CHANCE! That break is halted at source by Kucka, and Milan work it wide to Cerci, who delivers a dangerous cross. Bertolacci gets on the end of it, but he can only direct his header over the bar.
    • 24'
      STAT ATTACK: AC Milan have not conceded in their last five matches against Chievo.
    • 25'
      Bacca finally gets on the ball in the Chievo box and wins a corner for Milan. It is squandered, however, and Chievo are able to clear their lines.
    • 27'
      Sloppy stuff from Milan, here, who have been unable to pose any real threat to Chievo's goal early on.In truth, the visitors are looking extremely comforatable, as another pass goes astray for Milan - De Sciglio failing to find Bacca with what should have been a simple pass.
    • 30'
      Bonaventura is gifted the ball by Castro. The Milan winger drives towards goal, but he can only drag his low-shot wide from the edge of the area. The hosts win it back in midfield, only to concede possession again almost immediately.
    • 32'
      A long ball forward from Alex results in a Milan throw-in deep in Chievo territory. Kucka gets a hooked cross in, which is cleared out to the left wing. Bertolacci attempts to jink his way into the box, but he is shirked off by Gobbi.
    • 34'
      Nice interplay from Milan down the left, but Bonaventura loses out to Castro. They get it back however and De Sciglio feeds Cerci. The winger goes for goal, but his left-footed effort curls wide of the upright.
    • 37'
      Milan seeing all of the ball now, and have started to play with a bit more pace in the final third. The experienced Gobbi does well to see off Cerci, though, and knocks it clear from danger.
    • 39'
      CLOSE! Bonaventura really should have done better there! Alex puts in a fantastic cross from deep. The former Atalanta man meets it at the back post, but he is unable to apply the finish and Gobbi is again on hand to get Chievo upfield.
    • 42'
      Brilliant play from Milan, who are really stepping up a gear now, but again they are wasteful in front of goal. Cerci is again the instigator as he plays it across to Kucka and then drifts into the area. The ball is worked back out to De Sciglio. The full-back delivers a curling cross, but Cerci hea
    • 44'
      SAVE! Good stop from Donnarumma, the youngster tipping Pellissier's header over the bar after Milan's defence had switched off at a set-piece. A warning sign for the hosts, who are lucky that their latest prodigy was alert to the danger.
    • 45'
      A corner now for Milan, which Bonaventura whips in from the right. It misses everyone in the box, but Bacca collects it out wide and wins another corner.
    • 46'
      SI F. Cacciatore SO I. Abate
    • 46'
      N. Frey is replaced with F. Cacciatore.
    • 46'
      KICK-OFF! Milan get the second-half up and running. There's been one substitution at half-time, with Frey going off for Chievo to be replaced by Fabrizio Cacciatore.
    • 48'
      Bertolacci plays a delightful ball out wide to Bonaventura, but the winger's cross is intercepted. Romagnoli wins it back at the other end, and Milan launch another attack, only for Bacca to concede a throw-in.
    • 50'
      G. Pinzi receives a yellow card.
    • 50'
      More confusion at the back for Milan. Betolacci loses possession deep on his own half, with Alex failing to clear the resulting pass from Birsa. His defensive partner Romagnoli does manage to claw it away, though, and Bonaventura does well to win a free-kick on the left wing.
    • 51'
      WHAT A SAVE!! Superb stop from Bizzarri - the veteran Argentine stooping down low to his left to parry away Kucka's powerful heade from Bonaventura's delightful free-kick.
    • 52'
      G L. Antonelli Assist I. Abate
    • 52'
      Assist by C. Bacca.
    • 52'
      GOOOOOAAAAAALLLL! What a way to break the deadlock! Bertolacci plays a brilliant cross across the face of goal, but Bacca is flat-footed. Bonaventura retrieves the ball and plays it back towards the Colombia striker, who tees up the onrushing Antonelli and the full-back curles a lovely finish in off
    • 54'
      So the perfect start to the second period for the hosts. Chievo have been content to sit back and defend so far throughout this clash, but will have to come out of that shape now if they are to garner any points from tonight's match.
    • 57'
      Great defending from  Radovanovic, who slides in on Bacca superbly. Cheivo give it away swiftly, though, and Milan win another corner... which is spilled by Bizzarri, but Bacca and Alex both squander the chance to bundle home a second.
    • 58'
      B. Cesar is cautioned by the referee.
    • 60'
      Another chance goes begging for Milan, as both Bertolacci and Kucka fail to get their shots away on the edge of the Chievo box. The hosts are well and truly building up a head of steam, now.
    • 62'
      CLOSE! Bacca spreads it wide to Bonaventura - who is becoming increasingly involved in Milan's attacking play. He tees up Kukca, who fires a strike just wide from distance.
    • 64'
      SI P. M'Poku SO I. Abate
    • 64'
      P. M'Poku enters play, replacing V. Birsa.
    • 65'
      Patient buil-up play from Milan, but their move breaks down as Gobbi disposseses Bacca. Birsa cannot find a pass in the final third, however, and Milan again attack, and again Kucka drills wide from just outside the area.
    • 67'
      GREAT SAVE! Fantastic from Donnarumma again, who stands up big to parry away Paloschi's strike from six-yards out. Chievo get another cross in moments later, but Castro is unable to connect with a diving header.
    • 70'
      CHANCE! Almost a second for Milan! Bonaventura beats his man before firing in a sublime ball. Cerci looks to be about to nudge home a second for the hosts, but he is unable to stretch far enough to latch onto the cross.
    • 73'
      Chievo are knocking it about nicely, but without any real purpose at the moment. Milan seem more than happy to sit deep for the time-being, and exploit the pace of Cerci and Bonaventura on the counter attack.
    • 75'
      SI R. Meggiorini SO I. Abate
    • 75'
      R. Meggiorini enters play, replacing S. Pellissier.
    • 75'
      A final change now for Chievo, with Riccardo Meggiorini coming on. Cerci gets Milan up the pitch with a jinking run, but the eventual cross in is cleared out to Bonaventura, who curls his effort just over the bar.
    • 78'
      Another corner here for Milan. It falls to Bacca, but the Colombian's strike is well wide.
    • 81'
      Antonelli drives down the left once again. The goalscorer turns it back to Bonaventura, who in turn feeds Kucka, but he lashes his shot over.
    • 83'
      EXTRAORDINARY MISS! Somehow, Milan are still only one up! Bonaventura plays in Bertolacci with a delightful dink. The playmaker fires in a low cross across goal, but Bacca is unable to apply a finish at the back post.
    • 85'
      SI K. Honda SO I. Abate
    • 85'
      A. Cerci is replaced with K. Honda.
    • 85'
      Five minutes remaining now, with Antonelli's 52nd minute strike still seperating the two sides, as Pinzi dives in on Montolivo, but avoids picking up a second booking.
    • 88'
      Milan running down the clock, with Honda coming on to replace Cerci. The former Torino winger has impressed tonight, but lacked any real end product to his promising build-up play.
    • 90'
      JUST WIDE! Another chance goe s begging for Kukca, who rises highest to meet Bonaventura's corner, but the midfielder somehow heads wide of an open goal.
