  • It's all over and Diego Costa's late header means Atletico Madrid will take a 1-0 lead over AC Milan to the Vicente Calderon for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

  • A foul by Adrian Lopez on Taarabt earns him a yellow card but the resulting free kick comes to nothing.

  • Gabi goes for goal but his effort is disappointing and hits the wall.

  • A very lazy - almost deliberate - trip by Rami on Costa a few yards outside the box gives Atletico a dangerous free kick and earns the Milan player a yellow card.

  • There will be three minutes of stoppage time to play before the final whistle sounds.

  • Milan simply haven't offered enough of a forward threat in this second half to trouble Atletico and it looks as though they've spurned their home advantage.

  • Constant chases a long ball down the left wing but Miranda gets across first to blast it clear.

  • Rami unleashes a ferocious strike which is far better than anything Balotelli produced during his time on the pitch tonight but the ball whistles just past the post.

  • The Italians have a free kick around 30 yards out in a central position.

  • AC Milan make their third change with Kevin Constant coming on for Poli.

  • It didn't look like a goal was coming despite Atletico's toothless pressure but eventually their patience pays off and it's hard to see a way back for the hosts now. They can't really afford to head to Spain with a deficit to overturn.

  • GOAL COSTA! Gabi's corner is flicked high into the air by Abate towards the back post, where Costa is lurking to plant a firm header into the net.

  • Atletico are enjoying the wealth of possession at the moment and use it to win another corner on the right.

  • The resulting cross towards the near post is comfortably plucked out of the air by Abbiati.

  • Adil Rami weighs in with a well-timed challenge to prevent Insua from delivering a cross on the left wing but he does concede a corner.

  • Atletico Madrid make a change with Adrian Lopez coming on to replace Garcia.

  • That said, Juanfran breaks down the right wing before his low cross is fired over the bar by Costa.

  • To say this game is heading towards a goalless draw is an understatement. There's been very few chances throughout this second half and to be honest both sides look more than content with this scoreline.

  • Balotelli leaves the field clutching his shoulder as he's replaced by Giampaolo Pazzini.

  • Abbiati punches the initial cross clear before Gabi's follow-up cross is headed to safety by Abate.
