Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Atletico return to LaLiga action on Sunday on the road against Cadiz. Milan will hope to take momentum into their next Serie A contest at home to Sassuolo on the same day.
Milan keep their Champions League hopes alive with a huge 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano. The Rossoneri were minutes away from heading out of European competitions this term before Junior Messias planted a close-range header past Jan Oblak to fire them ahead. Matheus Cunha should have responded for Atletico in stoppage time, but he fired wide of the post to leave their last-16 hopes in the balance heading into the final round of fixtures. Despite losing 2-0 to Liverpool, Porto sit in second place ahead of their contest against Atletico in the last round of games. All three clubs still have the opportunity to join Liverpool in the round of 16. It should be a thrilling last week in Group B.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: ATLETICO MADRID 0-1 MILAN

Goal
87' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! MESSIAS STUNS THE WANDA METROPOLITANO!!!!!! 1-0 MILAN!!!! The Italian side take the lead in the dying stages of the game as Messias rises to plant a bullet header past Oblak from six yards. Kessie does brilliantly down the left flank to raid at the Atletico defence before supplying a perfect left-footed cross. Messias gets between Savic and Gimenez before applying the finish.
87' OFFSIDE! Milan cut open the home side at the back as Bennacer and Messias combine to release Ibrahimovic in the left-inside channel. He shoots with power on his left foot, but Oblak makes a brilliant reaction stop. The offside flag goes up late, but the Atletico keeper did not know that.

74' SAVE! Griezmann collects down the right-inside channel and he lifts a cross back to De Paul on the edge of the box. The Argentine fires at goal, but he can only send his effort straight at Tatarusanu.
71' BLOCK! Ibrahimovic sends Messias down the left-inside channel and he cuts the ball back into the middle. Bakayoko attacks the cross, but he sees his low drive blocked by Savic. The midfielder should have done better there.

46' We're back under way at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Diego Simeone will be very disappointed with his side's first-half display. The were off the pace and struggled to maintain possession. Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann were anonymous in the final third. That will need to change if the hosts are to force a victory this evening.
It is goalless at the break between Atletico Madrid and Milan in their Champions League clash. The visitors have been the better team, but have sruggled for a clinical edge in the final third. Brahim Diaz and Theo Hernandez both had half-chances, but failed to hit the target. At the other end, Atletico have been disappointing, failing to threaten Ciprian Tatarusanu's goal in a vital game for Los Rojiblancos.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: ATLETICO MADRID 0-0 MILAN

43' Atletico win a corner down the right flank that hands Carrasco a chance to whip a cross into the box, but he sends his delivery straight down the throat of Tatarusanu.

39' Giroud walks a fine line as catches Gimenez on the boot with a late challenge, but it is only a free-kick for the home side.

34' WIDE! Kalulu angles a cross into the box that finds Hernandez in acres of space in the left-inside channel. He shoots first-time on the half-volley, but he can only drill his attempt wide of the left post.
31' Diaz makes another break forward for Milan and tries to release Giroud behind the Atletico defence. However, he and the Frenchman are not on the same page and his throughball travels out for a goal-kick.
30' Diaz continues to look bright for the visitors, but he fails to connect with Giroud in the box with an arcing delivery.
28' De Paul tries to thread the needle to release Lemar through the middle of the Milan defence, but he overhits his pass into the hands of Tatarusanu.
O. Giroud
Yellow Card
27' Giroud goes into the book for catching Koke in the face with a stray arm as he tries to fend off the Atletico skipper.
25' Atletico have not been at the peak of their powers this evening. The home side have not been allowed to hit their stride in possession. In such an important game Simeone will be concerned.
23' De Paul looks to the referee for a penalty after going down under pressure from Hernandez, but the official waves away his appeal.
22' CHANCE! Llorente surges down the right flank and delivers a dangerous cutback into the box. Griezmann has the chance to shoot first time, but he miskicks his effort before Suarez is crowded out in the box.

15' The Rossoneri probe in the final third, but Tonali's floated ball over the top is cut out by Gimenez. Atletico need to retain possession.
14' Savic collides with Hernandez in the Atletico box and goes down in pain, but the defender soon gets to his feet. 
12' Milan are enjoying the better of possession at the moment. Atletico have yet to get their foot on the ball for an extended period.
9' Diaz hangs a cross into the box from the left flank that travels dangerously towards the back post. Oblak stretches, but can only watch as the ball whistles past the post. A close call for Atletico.
7' WIDE! Diaz weaves his way through the Atletico defence on the edge of the box before he pull the trigger on a right-footed strike that he sends wide of the left post.
4' Carrasco may have been offside in the build-up anyway, which perhaps spares the blushes of De Paul.
3' CHANCE! Carrasco breaks down the left flank and steers a low cross into the box. De Paul meets it with a strike on his right foot, but he places his effort wide of the left post. Atletico should be ahead.
2' Saelemaekers comes in late on Carrasco and gives away a free-kick in the Atletico half. Both sides have put in strong challenges in the opening two minutes.
1' Hernandez makes a break forward for the visitors down the left flank and is brought down by Koke. The full-back remains down and requires treatment.
1' We're under way at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Atletico Madrid have a 100% record against AC Milan in European competitions, winning all three of their meetings, which have all been in the Champions League – 1-0 away and 4-1 at home in 2013-14, and 2-1 away from home earlier this season.
Milan have made three changes to their side from their defeat to Fiorentina in their last outing. Ibrahimovic makes way in the final third despite scoring twice in the loss for Giroud, while Leao also drops to the bench as Krunic earns the start. Gabbia drops out of the back four as Romagnoli returns to action in the defence.
Atletico have made three changes to their side from their win over Osasuna last time out. Gimenez, De Paul and Suarez all come into the fold in place of Correa, Vrsaljko and Felipe, with the latter missing out on the squad tonight. Suarez, Lemar and Griezmann are expected to form a three-man attack.
MILAN SUBS: Ismael Bennacer, Fode Ballo-Toure, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao, Alessandro Florenzi, Daniel Maldini, Junior Messias, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Matteo Gabbia, Sebastiano Desplanches, Antonio Mirante.
MILAN (4-2-3-1): Ciprian Tatarusanu; Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Franck Kessie, Sandro Tonali; Alexis Saelemaekers, Rade Krunic, Brahim Diaz; Olivier Giroud.
ATLETICO SUBS: Benjamin Lecomte, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Angel Correa, Renan Lodi, Hector Herrera, Matheus Cunha, Sime Vrsaljko, Fran Gonzalez.
ATLETICO (3-4-3): Jan Oblak; Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez, Mario Hermoso; Marcos Llorente, Rodrigo De Paul, Koke, Yannick Carrasco; Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Lemar.
Milan are also in dire need of a win tonight after taking only one point from their opening four Group B matches. They claimed their only point last time out against Porto after suffering excruciating defeats at the hands of Atletico and Liverpool in their previous outings. Stefano Pioli's men suffered a 4-3 defeat in Serie A in their last outing against Fiorentina at the weekend. The Rossoneri need a dramatic improvement to avoid crashing out of the Champions League with one game to spare.
Atletico Madrid need to win tonight to haul themselves into the top two of Group B after losing back-to-back matches to Liverpool. Diego Simeone's men are sitting on four points in third place behind Porto, who play the Reds tonight. Los Rojiblancos will be aiming to capitalise on a potential Porto defeat to leapfrog the Portuguese outfit with one group game remaining. A late goal from Felipe secured a win for Atletico last time out against Osasuna, but Simeone knows that his team have to be better.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League clash between Atletico Madrid and Milan at the Wanda Metropolitano.
