AC Milan 1 AS Livorno 1

In a first half that saw chances on both sides, Milan began to establish the upper hand in the later stages. Beckham had chances from open play and from set plays, Ronaldinho hit the post, but it was Ambrossini who put the ball in the back of the net in the final minute of the first half. A fine cross from Beckham had the goal keeper fumbling, and Seedorf may have been instrumental in blocking the keeper whilst Ambrossini fired home - the first half finishes 1-0 to Milan.
In the second half, Milan started well, Huntelaar almost doubling their lead. However it was Livorno who scored in the 52nd minute catching the Milan defence standing still. The game continued at high tempo with Milan probably having the better possession and chances, but unable to find the back of the net. Inzaghi came on for Flamini in the final stages signaling Milan's intent to score a winning goal, having suffered losses in the last two home games.
Beckham earned himself another yellow card in the last few minutes for a 'professional' foul, the game went into four minutes of extra time which ended up as more than six minutes, but despite all the pressure that Milan put onto the Livorno goal, there were no further goals to be found, the game finished 1-1, and Livorno will be considerably happier with the result than Milan.
