Milan v Atlético Madrid Live Commentary, 28/09/2021

1 - 2
Rafael Leão (20)
A. Griezmann (84)
L. Suárez (90+7 pen)
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza


That's all for today, goodbye! 
Milan feel hard done by with that loss, with the players and manager swarming the referee on the full-time whistle. They're bottom of the group after two losses, but turn their attention back to the league when they face Atalanta. Atletico stay second in the group and it's another tough test for them next time out as they host Barcelona in LaLiga.
There's late drama as Atletico Madrid come from behind to beat 10-man Milan 2-1. Leao gave the hosts the lead in the first half when he slotted in from a corner and he almost had a second, but his overhead kick bounced back off the crossbar. Kessie was sent off just before the half-hour mark for his second booking. Atletico pushed in the second half, and Griezmann equalised in the 84th minute with his first goal since returning to the club. In stoppage time, Kalulu handled the ball and Suarez slotted home the winner from the spot in the seventh minute of added time.
90' + 9' Milan are pushing for a late equaliser, but their quality is letting them down at the moment. Calabria whips a deep cross into the box, which is well over Giroud's head and Tonali can only nod it out of play on the far side of the area.
L. Suárez
Penalty Goal
Atlético Madrid
90' + 7' SUAREZ SCORES! From the penalty initially being given to Suarez stepping up to take it, over three minutes had passed, but he didn't let it phase him. He slots it straight down the middle, and it goes through Maignan's legs as the goalkeeper dives to his right. Atletico have turned this around, it's 2-1!
M. Maignan
Yellow Card
90' + 6' Yellow Card Mike Maignan
90' + 5' VAR is having a look at the penalty incident while the Milan players surround the referee and continue to argue against the decision. After a long look at the incident, the onfield decision stands, but Suarez has been made to wait a long time to take this...
90' + 3' PENALTY TO ATLETICO! It's manic in the Milan box with players from both sides tripping over the ball. It bounces back to Lemar, who tries to take it past Kalulu. It bounces up onto the defender's arm, which is close to him, but he blocks Lemar's run and the referee points to the spot.
90' + 1' GREAT SAVE! Milan aren't happy because they think Tonali was fouled, but the referee let play carry on. It's squared into Joao Felix, who lets it bounce up before hitting it on the volley from the edge of the box, but Maignan stretches to push it away.
90' Atletico are pushing for a late winner and Milan just can't get out of their own box at the moment. Lemar curls an early cross into the box, but it's a poor ball from him that is straight into the keeper's hands.
88' FLORENZI! Milan take their free-kick short, but it hits the first man. They manage to get it back as Giroud touches it into Florenzi, who is hovering just outside the box. He hits it first time, and it has Oblak scrambling back to his line, but it lands on the roof of the net.
86' CLOSE! It's Milan's first real chance of the second half and Florenzi almost restores their lead. He gets in front of his defender but can't get his angles right and ends up fizzing his low effort just wide of the far post.
Renan Lodi
Atlético Madrid
84' Lodi just peels away from Calabria on the far side of the box and cushions his header down into the middle for Griezmann.
A. Griezmann
Atlético Madrid
84' GRIEZMANN EQUALISES! Atletico have been pushing and they've finally found an equaliser! Lodi heads it back across the box and nobody is picking up the Frenchman in the middle. He hits it on the half-volley and Maignan is left stranded as it nestles into the bottom corner for Griezmann's first goal since returning to the club. 1-1! 
P. Kalulu
A. Saelemaekers
82' Saelemaekers is also being taken off, with Kalulu replacing him.
A. Florenzi
I. Bennacer
81' Milan are making a double change as they try to see out this game. Bennacer is the first to make way, with Florenzi on in his place.
A. Saelemaekers
Yellow Card
79' Saelemaekers tried to drag Joao Felix back by his shirt, but the forward got away. So, he slid in, taking out the player in the process, and is shown a yellow card.
78' Bennacer is almost through on goal but is crowded off the ball by three Atletico defenders, who then set their side on the counter. It's threaded through to Lodi on the left, and it looks like he's tugged back by Saelemaekers, but the referee tells him to get back to his feet.
76' SAVE! Atletico have finally had their first shot on target of the game and it was a long-range effort from Felipe. He caught it well, drilling a low shot across goal, but Maignan gets down well to push it away.
74' It's patient play from Atletico as they continue to try and open up the space in behind Milan They work it out to Llorente on the right, but again, the quality isn't there and Tomori rises to clear it.
72' Maignan wasn't happy with that challenge from Suarez, even though it was an accidental one from the forward. He stayed down holding his arm, but it looks like he'll be able to carry on after treatment.
70' Griezmann's flick-on is cleared by Romagnoli, but Atletico get it back and De Paul recycles it by whipping it into the far post. Suarez's initial chance is blocked and he ends up catching Maignan when he tries to have a follow-up shot.
T. Hernández
Yellow Card
69' The referee played an advantage during Atletico's latest attack, but he's just gone back and booked Hernandez after he rugby tackled Suarez to the ground to stop him from reaching the ball.
68' Lodi squares it to De Paul on the edge of the box again, and he has so much space around him. He hits the shot first time, but slices at it and it swerves just high and wide of the far post.
66' De Paul plays a one-two with Joao Felix on the edge of the box to open up a pocket of space before he tries to thread it through to Suarez. The forward is well offside though and he has to leave it to roll harmlessly through to Maignan.
T. Lemar
G. Kondogbia
Atlético Madrid
64' Final roll of the dice for Atletico now as Kondogbia is taken off and replaced by Lemar.
62' GREAT CHANCE! Atletico take a free-kick quickly to Lodi and Milan are completely caught out. He squares it to Joao Felix in the middle, but he can't get it out of his feet as it's behind him. He does manage to dig out a shot, but it's blocked by Tomori.
A. Griezmann
Atlético Madrid
61' Atletico are making another change now as Simeone brings on Griezmann for Koke.
G. Kondogbia
Yellow Card
Atlético Madrid
60' Tonali overruns the ball and fouls Felipe in his attempts to keep it. The substitute then walks away with the ball and Kondogbia pushes him to the ground in frustration.
59' Koke threads it through for Correa, but he can't pull away from Hernandez to control it. He goes to ground just inside the box, and there's a half-hearted shout for a penalty, but nothing is given.
O. Giroud
Rafael Leão
57' The goal scorer, Leao, is also being taken off, with Giroud on in his place.
F. Ballo
Brahim Díaz
57' Diaz has gone down, and it looks like he's got a muscle injury. The players gesture straight to the bench and Ballo-Toure is on to replace him.
56' Atletico are really starting to up the pressure now, but they're still yet to have a shot on target and test Maignan. De Paul lifts the ball over Romagnoli into the box, but Tonali blocks Joao Felix's run and sees it out of play.
54' SUAREZ! Joao Felix curls a wonderful cross into the middle of the box and Suarez gets in between the two central defenders. He rises highest and tries to guide it into the far post, but it bounces just wide.
52' Bennacer wins the ball off Koke and he slides it through to Saelemaekers on the right. He pulls it back for Diaz on the edge of the box, but Atletico are much quicker to close him down and he's crowded off it.
50' CHANCE! It's a great switch out to Lodi by De Paul with the outside of his boot, and the left-back whips an early cross into the box. Kondogbia hits it first time, trying to curl it inside of the near post, but it's just wide.
48' Atletico have made a much better start to the second half and are already putting pressure on Milan. De Paul has his back to go, so touches it out to Lodi on the edge of the box, but his shot is blocked by Romagnoli.
46' Atletico get us back underway for the second half! 
Renan Lodi
Atlético Madrid
46' Hermoso is also making way, with Lodi on for him.
R. De Paul
Y. Carrasco
Atlético Madrid
46' Simeone is making a double change at the start of the second half. De Paul is the first to come on, replacing Carrasco.
Pioli will be pleased with his side's performance at the break, and they still looked the better side after going down to 10 men. Atletico have looked sluggish so far and haven't been able to use their man advantage. Simeone already made one attacking change and he'll be expecting a massive improvement after the break if they want to get something out of this game.
10-man Milan lead Atletico Madrid 1-0 at half-time. The hosts made a brilliant start to the game and Leao gave them the lead when he slotted the ball past Oblak from the edge of the box. Kessie was sent off for them just before the half-hour mark though for his second yellow card. Leao then hit the crossbar with a brilliant free-kick that left Oblak scrambling, before Suarez volleyed an effort just wide before the break.
45' + 1' GREAT CHANCE! It's patient play by Atletico as they switch it from left to right and Correa whips a great cross into the middle of the box. Suarez hits it on the volley, but his shot fizzes just wide of the far post.
44' Kessie is the first Milan player to receive a red card during the opening 30 minutes of play in a Champions League match since Riccardo Montolivo (22nd minute) in December 2013 against Ajax.
42' Atletico's control in the game since the sending off is slipping away now, with Milan back on the front foot. Diaz picks out Leao on the left and he tries to slip it through to Hernandez, but Felipe makes an important interception.
João Félix
K. Trippier
Atlético Madrid
40' Atletico are making their first change of the game here. It's an attacking one, as Joao Felix comes on in place of Trippier.
38' OFF THE BAR! It's another long ball forward from Maignan with Leao bringing it down in the box. He has two defenders around him as it bounces up, and he goes for the overhead kick. It almost comes off, with Oblak left scrambling, but the bar prevents what would've been a brilliant goal.
36' Leao has scored the first home Champions League goal for Milan since Robinho, in October 2013 against Barcelona.
S. Tonali
A. Rebić
34' Milan are making a change to make up for the loss of one of their midfielders. Rebic is the forward player sacrificed, much to his frustration, with Tonali on to replace him.
33' Tomori hooks a hopeful ball upfield which Leao brings down on the halfway line. He turns away from Kondogbia and drives down the right, but he's the only one forward. He tries to wrongfoot Felipe but takes a heavy touch which knocks it out of play.
31' Atletico are moving the ball around much quicker now and Oblak goes long with his clearance out to Llorente on the right. He has three to aim for in the middle but puts his cross straight into Maignan's gloves.
A. Rebić
Yellow Card
29' The Milan players all swarmed around the referee in protest of the red card, and Rebic is booked for dissent.
29' KESSIE IS OFF! He closes Llorente down quickly, but he's already got rid of the ball by the time Kessie gets there. He steps on his foot from behind and is shown his second yellow card of the game and is sent off. That could completely flip this game on its head.
28' Another corner is swung in for Atletico and it goes through to Suarez at the far post. He goes for the volley but slices it back towards Kondogbia on the edge of the box. He then goes for goal but blazes his effort high over the bar.
26' Atletico are patiently knocking it around on the edge of Milan's box to try and open up some space before Llorente plays it out wide by playing a one-two with Trippier. He ends up winning a corner, but it's a poor header from Gimenez.
24' Diaz is unmarked again and he plays another lovely throughball into Rebic in the box. He pulls it back for Hernandez, who sets himself to hit the shot first time, but Felipe gets across to make an important block.
22' That goal seems to have woken Atletico up and they're moving the ball upfield with much more intent now. Rebic clumsily brings down Kondogbia to give away a free-kick, but Carrasco puts it straight into Maignan's gloves.
Brahim Díaz
20' Diaz has had a great start to the game and when he brought the corner down, he got his head up to spot Leao unmarked on the edge of the box.
Rafael Leão
20' LEAO SCORES! It's been coming and Milan finally have the breakthrough. Atletico just don't deal with the corner into the box and Diaz touches it into Leao. He takes a touch to set himself before hitting a low shot across goal under Oblak and into the back of the net. 1-0 Milan! 
19' GREAT SAVE! Kessie steps in to intercept Llorente's pass and touches it into Diaz, who threads a wonderful throughball into Rebic. Gimenez can't intercept it and the forward is through on goal. Oblak rushes out as he hits the shot and gets a slight touch to send it just wide of the far post.
17' Diaz is causing Atletico's midfield all sorts of problems here. He nicks the ball off Koke this time, before turning and driving back towards goal. He has three up with him in support, but goes for goal himself and drills it straight at Oblak.
F. Kessié
Yellow Card
15' Kessie clips the back of Llorente's heels as he tries to catch up with the run and is shown the first yellow card of the game.
14' Diaz tracks back to win possession this time and Milan are trying to pass their way into the box. Atletico are keeping their shape well though and the hosts can't find a way through just yet.
12' Milan have made a really bright start to the game and play themselves out of trouble well at the back. Bennacer drives forward through the middle before running into Gimenez, and Diaz can't keep it alive in the box.
10' There are shouts from some of the Atletico players for a penalty here after Correa's flick past Kessie bounced up and onto Tomori's arm. He didn't know anything about it as it came at him quickly and after a quick check by VAR, no penalty is given.
8' It's a really poor backpass by Koke, who plays it blind back towards Kondogbia, and it's straight into Leao's feet. He feeds it through the middle, with Rebic outmuscling Gimenez to get in front of the defender, but Oblak is quickly out of his box to hook it clear.
6' Milan's high press is still causing Atletico all sorts of problems as they're winning it back high upfield. Diaz gets in to nick it off Kondogbia, but it's a poor cross into Rebic, which is cut out by Felipe.
4' It's Atletico's turn to attack now after winning the ball back deep in their own half and Carrasco tries to thread it forward for Suarez down the left. He overhits the throughball though and Milan are happy to let it roll out of play.
2' Milan have started on the front foot here and Atletico can't get anywhere near them. Leao switches it out to Calabria on the right and he brushes aside Hermoso before driving forward. The left-back recovers well though and gets back to block the cross.
1' Rebic gets the game underway for Milan! 
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
Milan have only won one of their last 17 games against Spanish opponents in European competition (D7 L9), while they're winless in the seven matches since the only victory in this run - 2-0 v Barcelona in February 2013.
Diego Simeone makes just three changes from the loss to Alaves on Saturday. Gimenez, Koke and Correa are the players to come in, with De Paul and Griezmann named on the bench. Stefan Savic misses out due to an injury.
Pioli makes four changes to the side that beat Spezia at the weekend as he brings Calabria, Bennacer, Diaz and Leao into the starting line-up. Kalulu, Maldini, Tonali and Giroud drop to the bench, with the latter two not being risked due to slight injuries.
ATLETICO MADRID SUBS: Thomas Lemar, Christian, Joao Felix, Hector Herrera, Sime Vrsaljko, Sergio Camus, Rodrigo de Paul, Renan Lodi, Matheus Cunha, Benjamin Lecomte, Antoine Griezmann.

Milan's return to the Champions League got off to a losing start as Liverpool came from behind to beat them 3-2 two weeks ago. They're unbeaten in Serie A though, winning five and drawing one of those games, and Stefano Pioli will be hoping to transfer that form to this competition. Atletico played out a goalless draw with Porto in the other group game. They're coming into today on the back of their first defeat of the season though, having lost 1-0 to Deportivo Alaves at the weekend.
