AS Roma 0 AC Milan 0

Beckham on the bench again for the start of this game. The first half bought us no goals and precious few real efforts on goal. Milan looked the stronger side although they did not have everything their own way. Ronaldinho once again excelled and looks like a man determined to make it back into the Brazilian squad before the World cup.
The second half began with Milan pressing the home side and looking the more likely to break the deadlock. Ranieri introduced Toni into the game to pester the Milan defence, a task which he set about with relish. In the meantime, Milan continue to dominate but were missing the vital delivery into the box which is normally provided by Beckham.
Beckham took the field with 20 mins to go with his normal partner in crime down the right wing; Abate. His first couple of efforts were off-target probably as a result of the amount of bench-sitting rather than playing he has been doing lately. On 77 minutes Inzaghi joined the fray with instructions to get that all-important goal. Beckham's third attempt at delivering the killer ball into the box, was inch-perfect finding Ronaldinho's head, but Ronadinho headed wide. As the clock ticked the time away, it was still Milan that were largely in control of the game, but it was Riise for Roma who had the last effort, stinging the hands of Abbiati from distance with only 10 seconds of extra time remaining. The game finished 0-0, but Milan can consider it points lost as they should have had a win to show for their superiority on the pitch.
