While the people of Milan and the Rhone Valley dissect tonight's action long into the night, it is time for us to say farewell.

But don't worry, we will be back soon. Tuesday, in fact, when we have a Champions League bonanza as Barcelona host Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich entertain Porto. Join us then!

Lyon 2-2 St Etienne

Andy Brassell

European football expert

"Phew. What a derby. 2-2, so Lyon go back to top on goal diff (having played one more than PSG) but point poor reward for huge performance."

FULL-TIME

Lyon 2-2 St Etienne

French Ligue 1

All over in France's big match too. Lyon had 10 men for over an hour against neighbours St Etienne, but battled back to earn a point and move back to the top of Ligue 1.

Lyon led the Rhone Valley derby through Clinton N'Jie, before Lindsay Rose's sending-off for a deliberate handball allowed St Etienne to switch the match in their favour.

However, Christophe Jallet equalised shortly after the restart as Lyon leapfrogged reigning champions Paris St-Germain on goal difference.

Around the Italian grounds

Italian Serie A

Away from Milan, it has been a busy old day in the Italian top-flight. Third-placed Roma missed the chance to move back above capital rivals Lazio, when they could only muster a 1-1 home draw against fourth-bottom Atalanta.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

So what does this draw mean for the Serie A table? Very little. Milan stay in ninth position, while Inter are one place and one point behind them. Both sides need a big finish if they fancy a crack at Europa League football next season.

FULL-TIME

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

This Derby del Madonnina won't go down as one of the finest, that's for sure. But there are still plenty of talking points for the people of Milan. Each side had a goal chalked off - rightly in my eyes but probably not in the eyes of the respective supporters...

FULL-TIME

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

All over! Rival Inter and Milan fans can face each other in the office tomorrow without losing too much face....

Inter work the ball into the Milan box as the Rossoneri defenders scamper back. However, the final ball is poor and it is meat and drink for away keeper Diego Lopez.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Another wasted set-piece. Inter clear at the near post as Milan look to be short in numbers at the back....

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Milan fling the ball forward - if they nick a winner now there could be a riot from the Inter fans. Corner....

INJURY TIME

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Inter top scorer Mauro Icardi is allowed far too much room inside the Milan box, doing a few keepy-ups before fizzing a low shot across the face of goal. Four minutes of stoppage time for someone to nab a dramatic winner...

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Palacio

Milan enjoy a spell of possession in the Inter half, before the hosts nick back the ball and spring forward through Rodrigo Palacio. The ball breaks to Xherdan Shaquiri - known as the 'Alpine Messi' back in his native Switzerland (seriously) - but the Inter substitute cannot keep his rising shot down.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Inzaghi

Milan boss Pippo Inzaghi was the kind of striker who would do nothing for 87 minutes, then pop up to convert a goal. Usually from inside the six-yard box. He barks out the orders from the touchline as his side are forced to defend again.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Milan's attacking intent has been limited in this second half. But they almost nick an unlikely lead on the break as substitute Mattia Destro sends a low shot scurrying towards the bottom corner. But it is comfortable for Inter keeper Samir Handanovic to gather.

Five minutes for someone, anyone, to become the toast of Milan. Can they do it?

YELLOW CARD

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Ouch! Inter midfielder Hernanes crunches into a flying tackle on the halfway line - and sees yellow for his effort.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Time for another substitution - the fourth official is almost as busy as Milan keeper Diego Lopez. Italy forward Alessandro Cerci trots on in place of Andrea Poli for the Rossoneri.

CLOSE!

Still the Inter chances keep coming. Home full-back Danilo D'Ambrosio is the next to try his luck, launching a dipping shot towards the Milan goal. Away keeper Diego Lopez acrobatically flings himself towards his crossbar and is thankful to find out that the ball whistles over the roof of his goal.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

How are Inter not ahead? Milan keeper Diego Lopez makes a couple of smart stops in quick succession, palming out a high cross before blocking the follow up from the Nerazzurri. Not sure he knew much about that second save though!

SUBSTITUTION

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Kovacic

And that Milan change prompts Inter boss Roberto Mancini to respond. Enter Xherdan Shaqiri - the Swiss winger comes on for Mateo Kovacic as Inter look to nab a winner. They have little under 15 minutes to do so.

SUBSTITUTION

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

In the middle of that chaos, Milan decide to make an attacking switch. Italy forward Mattia Destro replaces Suso for the Rossoneri.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Absolute mayhem. Inter are going nuts about that decision. Right, here's a replay. Offside? No way near. A foul in the build-up? Appears so. Referee Luca Banti spots a tug by Inter forward Rodrigo Palacio on the shirt of Milan defender Luca Antonelli and awards the free-kick. What a spot! Great refereeing.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

The San Siro erupts as Milan defender Philippe Mexes comically hacks an attempted clearance into his own net, Hang on, it is not going to count. Why has the referee given this? The Nerazzurri fans - and boss Roberto Mancini - are baffled...

SUBSTITUTION

Now it is Milan's time to make a change. However, this one is forced upon Rossoneri boss Pippo Inzaghi. Centre-back Alex is injured and is replaced by Gabriel Palletta.

CLOSE!

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Another half chance for the home side. Gary Medel's penetrative pass sets up the Inter attack, with Rodrigo Palacio drilling in a low cross from the right towards the front post. Strike partner Mauro Icardi busts a gut to meet the ball, only to see Milan keeper Diego Lopez beat him to it.

SUBSTITUTION

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Inter boss Roberto Mancini decides it is time to roll the tactical dice. He sacrifices 18-year-old midfielder Assane Gnoukouri - who has enjoyed a quietly effective debut - for Nigerian Joel Obi. Inter well on top - can they make the breakthrough soon?

PENALTY APPEAL

Luca Antonelli

Handball? Inter think so. The home players and fans are screaming for a spot-kick as Milan defender Luca Antonelli blocks - using his hand according to Inter - Hernanes's shot. Antonelli's hand was certainly outstretched. We have seen those given. That incident has livened up the locals...

Goals galore in the Rhone-Valley derby! Ten-men Lyon haul themselves back level as Christophe Jallet converts for the title-chasers.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

A goal is coming soon - I can feel it! And it nearly arrives when Rodrigo Palacio - who has been involved in the thick of the action in recent minutes - sees his goalbound shot blocked on the line by Milan defender Antonelli. Rossoneri keeper Diego Lopez flaps at a high cross to present that chance to the Argentine.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Still Inter dominate as Rodrigo Palacio chases down a loose ball and forces Milan skipper Ignazio Abate into conceding a corner. The set-piece, however, comes to nothing.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

The game has opened up a little, but clearcut chances are still less frequent than a rural bus service. Inter forward Mauro Icardi peels off the Milan defence in the left channel, but his lofted cross is too strong for Rodrigo Palacio to meet.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Rodrigo Palacio has been encouraged by that disallowed goal though, picking up the ball in his own half before tearing towards the back-pedalling Milan defence. However, Luca Antonelli breaks out from the line to stop the Argentine in his tracks. Great challenge.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Inter, like Milan in the first half, have the ball in the opposing net. And like Milan defender Philippe Mexes earlier, Inter forward Rodrigo Palacio turns to see the linesman's flag wafting in the cool Milan night air.

Team-mate Mauro Icardi is the guilty party, springing clear of the Milan defence too quickly before squaring to the Argentine. Offside.

Lyon 1-2 St Etienne

It's all change in France where St Etienne have now taken the lead at Lyon, whose title hopes may be about to take a hit.

The home side is down to 10 men and trail just before half-time with substitute Romain Hamouma rounding the goalkeeper to slot home his third goal of the season.

Michael Glasper: The Milan derby. Like two former brilliant heavyweight boxers, now long past their best, wheeled out for one last payday.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Milan, unlike the first half, start strongly as Giacomo Bonaventura drills a low shot just past Inter's right-hand post. Decent effort but it doesn't really have home keeper Samir Handanovic worried.

KICK-OFF

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Milan's turn to start the second half - and that's what they do. Game on.

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

Inter re-emerge first out of the San Siro tunnel, with the Milan boys sauntering out at their leisure a few moments later. Ready for humdinger of a second half? It is going to happen people. Hopefully....

Inter Milan 0-0 AC Milan

We catch a glimpse of Inter legend Javier Zanetti, who is sat in the San Siro stands sharing a joke with former Nerazzurri owner Massimo Moratti. They seem to be happy anyway, despite a less than thrilling first half.
