  1. Post update

    That is all from our European football coverage for the evening. I hope you enjoyed the game. If not then you are never allowed to look at football again. That's it, you're out! Until next time, ta ra. I'll see thee.

  2. Post update

    Milan did it the hard way but they now have two wins from two games this season. They join Juventus and Roma in having achieved this feat this campaign and are top of the table on goal difference. Parma, however, are winless after two games along with Empoli. It almost seems unfair on them that they can't take something away from tonight's game. I tell you what Parma, you have my gratitude, and that's worth more than league points right? Parma? Right?!


    Parma 4-5 AC Milan

    A truly astonishing game comes to an end. Milan have won it but that is only a tiny bit of the story. The game twisted and turned like a twisty, turny thing. We've had nine goals, including a solo effort from Nigel de Jong, a superb backheel from Jeremy Menez and a ludicrous own goal, assisted by Milan keeper Diego Lopez. Oh, and two sendings off as well. Right everyone, you can breathe out now.

  4. Post update

    Parma 4-5 AC Milan

    The Milan defenders are doing a sterling job of protecting Diego Lopez. Parma are unleashing plenty of long-range shots to try and beat the injured keeper but so far all they have hit is Milan bodies. The six added minutes are now up.

  5. Post update

    Parma 4-5 AC Milan

    There are six added minutes. This game is not over yet! Lopez is moving awkwardly. Surely it is shoot on sight for Parma.

  6. GOAL

    Parma 4-5 AC Milan - Mattia De Sciglio own goal

    You have got to be kidding me?! What has Diego Lopez just done?!! Milan full-back Mattia De Sciglio has possession but is under pressure on the right side of his own half and so digs out a pass back to his keeper, believing it will be dealt with easily. However, Lopez somehow allows the ball to pass him and dribble into the net without even getting a touch. He acts as though he may have pulled something but you suspect that is an attempt to recoup some pride. Because he has just made an utter fool of himself.

    French Ligue 1

    Over in France, Marseille have wrapped up the win against Evian with Florian Thauvin making it 3-0.


    Parma 3-5 AC Milan

    Jeremy Menez can take a well-deserved rest. He's had a cracking night, capped by the cheekiest of goals. He is replaced by M'Baye Niang with four minutes to go.

  10. Post update

    Parma 3-5 AC Milan

    So, let me get this straight... eight goals, two sendings off, a crossbar hit and some pretty excessive celebrations from the visitors. Not bad for an otherwise quiet Sunday night.

  11. GOAL

    Parma 3-5 AC Milan - Jeremy Menez (79 mins)

    Unbelievable! That is surely the win for Milan now. And what a superb and cheeky piece of skill to wrap up a win. Jeremy Menez is alert in the box to latch on to a loose pass-back from Stefan Ristovski, clip the ball round the advancing Antonio Mirante before back-heeling the ball into the net. Lovely stuff. The Milan players are having a party like it's 1999 as well.

  12. RED CARD

    Parma - Felipe

    That is ridiculous. No way is that a sending off. Felipe is moving at pace and may slightly brush a Milan player, but the dramatic dive that it results in is completely over the top. The ref buys it hook, line and sinker and shows the Parma man a straight red. It is now 10-a-side.


    Parma 3-4 AC Milan

    Parma have just scored so of course it is Milan's turn to attack. Jeremy Menez charges away from Alessandro Lucarelli again down the left and into the box before firing a shot from an angle that Antonio Mirante pushes up onto the corner of the goalframe.

  14. GOAL

    Parma 3-4 AC Milan - Alessandro Lucarelli (73 mins)

    That is a pretty good start! A corner is swung over from the right and slammed into the net by the head of Alessandro Lucarelli. This is an astonishing game. And you sense it is not done yet. Strap yourself in for a big 16 minutes!


    Parma 2-4 AC Milan

    Another Parma change sees Massimo Coda come on for Cristobal Jorquera. They have less than 20 minutes to rescue this.

  16. GOAL

    Parma 2-4 AC Milan - Nigel de Jong (68 mins)

    Nigel de Jong

    If you had drawn up a list of likely scorers of the next goal, Nigel de Jong would be near the very bottom. And you certainly wouldn't expect him to run half the length of the pitch before slotting in either. Well that is what has just happened after the Dutch midfielder closes down and dispossesses Antonio Cassano before charging clear to score. At one stage it looked like De Jong didn't have the wheels but he found the gas and got his reward and 10-man Milan have something better to protect.

  17. Tevez on target for Juve

    Italian Serie A

    Argentina striker Carlos Tevez scored his first goal of the season as Juventus beat Udinese 2-0 in manager Massimiliano Allegri's home bow.

    The Italian champions made it two wins from two in Serie A ahead of Tuesday's Champions League visit of Malmo.

    Allegri struggled to make any impact at Milan but you would have to fancy his chances of doing better at the Italian champions. Two wins from two for Juve.

  18. Kagawa's Dortmund joy

    German Bundesliga

    German Bundesliga

    Shinji Kagawa

    Shinji Kagawa's Manchester nightmare is finally over.

    The Japan international scored on his Borussia Dortmund return on Saturday as the Germans thrashed Freiburg 3-1 in the Bundesliga.

    Kagawa, 25, has signed a four-year deal with the German club, for whom he played from 2010 to 2012, prior to his move to Old Trafford for £12m.

    Arsenal next at home for Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.


    Parma 2-3 AC Milan

    Parma make a change of their own to try and capitalize on their numerical advantage. Raffaele Palladino comes on for Abdelkader Ghezzal. There are 25 potentially gripping minutes to go.


    Parma 2-3 AC Milan

    Filippo Inzaghi has his work cut out now to put a tactical plan together to preserve Milan's lead. His first act is to withdraw Keisuke Honda and Alex and send on Cristian Zapata and Adil Rami.

  22. Post update

    Parma 2-3 AC Milan

    The free-kick from the resulting handball by Bonera is right on the edge of the box. Parma's first effort strikes the wall but the ref calls it back and books Nigel de Jong for breaking from the wall too early. Antonio Cassano fires the second set-piece but the ball clips his own man before blazing into the stand.

  23. RED CARD

    AC Milan - Daniele Bonera

    Now we have a game on our hands. Bonera was booked in the first half and now his evening is over after diving in to block a Parma shot with his hand on the edge of the box. Milan may lead but they have a tough 30 minutes ahead now.

  24. Post update

    French Ligue 1


    Meanwhile, over in France, Marseille have taken a 2-0 lead against Evian. Gianelli Imbula has added to the opener scored by Andre-Pierre Gignac in the very first minute.

  25. Post update

    Parma 2-3 AC Milan

    Milan almost restore their two-goal lead straight away as Ignazio Abate skips clear of his marker before unleashing a shot from just inside the box that Antonio Mirante does really well to get down to palm away.

  26. GOAL

    Parma 2-3 AC Milan - Felipe (51 mins)

    Game on! Parma strike back to narrow Milan's lead as the ball is floated into the box and headed back for Cristobal Jorquera to slice a shot into the six-yard box that is perfect for Felipe to slot into the net. It is turning into a bit of a cracker this.

  27. Post update

    Parma 1-3 AC Milan

    The first half-chance of the second half goes to Milan. Giacomo Bonaventura gets his side a free-kick in Parma territory with a dramatic tumble. Keisuke Honda swings the ball over the top for Alex, who misses his header but was offside anyway.

  28. Post update

    Italian Serie A

    Dani Osvaldo. Remember him Southampton fans? Of course you do, he was that £15m flop you signed.

    The Italian has made a better start to life at Inter though, on loan from the Saints, scoring his first two goals for the club in their 7-0 drubbing of Sassuolo earlier today.

    Bizarrely it was exactly a year ago today that Inter won 7-0 at Sassuolo. If the fixture computer spits out the same fixture next year you'd forgive Sassuolo for not turning up.

  29. Post update

    Stats provider OptaPaolo on Twitter: Ignazio Abate has delivered an assist in back to back games for his first time in Serie A.

  33. Messi better than "Playstation"

    Spanish La Liga

    While Real Madrid have had a pretty disastrous start to La Liga, Barcelona are looking formidable after their three matches.

    Brazil superstar Neymar came off the bench to score both goals in Barca's 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, before heaping praise on teammate Lionel Messi.

    Messi was also hailed by boss Luis Enrique who admitted the Argentine does things he doesn't even see on "the Playstation"..... Now that's a compliment. Unless he only owns Grand Theft Auto V*.

    Parma 1-3 AC Milan

    Milan barely have time to celebrate the goal before the half-time whistle blows. The visitors hold a commanding lead that perhaps they do not completely deserve. Not that Filippo Inzaghi and his players will be complaining. Parma have a mountain to climb now.

  36. GOAL

    Parma 1-3 AC Milan - Jeremy Menez (45 mins)


    And they do just that as Menez dusts himself down, steps up to the spot and smashes the ball straight down the middle and into the net. That could well be the end of Parma's challenge.


    Parma 1-2 AC Milan

    Parma's night is unravelling. Jeremy Menez is too fast for Alessandro Lucarelli, who hauls back his rival in the box and gets a booking for his trouble. Milan can put some daylight between themselves and Parma before the break...

    Antonia Cassano

    You'd almost think he had a point to prove against his former team.

  39. GOAL

    Parma 1-2 AC Milan - Keisuke Honda (37 mins)

    Keisuke Honda

    Great goal. Really great goal. Milan are back in front after Jeremy Menez flights a perfectly-weighted pass down the right for Ignazio Abate to supply a cross into the middle of the box that Keisuke Honda meets on the run to powerfully place a header into the roof of the net. Filippo Inzaghi is a lot happier with that and so he should be.

  40. Post update

    Parma 1-1 AC Milan

    Nigel de Jong is doing a job for Milan that will be very familiar to anyone who has seen him in action for Manchester City and the Netherlands. He is perfectly-placed to step in and powerfully recover possession as Parma's Afriyie Acquah looks to break away. It is simple stuff but very effective. You also pity anyone who feels the full impact of his enforcement.

  41. Post update

    Parma 1-1 AC Milan

    After a mad couple of minutes the game has now settled again. Both teams are back in midfield possession mode, with Milan dominating most of the ball.

    Spanish La Liga

    There isn't much loyalty in football these days is there? Imagine being Real goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

    Six hundred and eighty four appearances for the club, winning three Champions Leagues, five league titles, two Intercontinental Cups, two Uefa Super Cups, two Copa del Rey titles and four Spanish Super Cups. Surely enough to be a fans favourite?

    It would seem not. The Spain stopper was jeered by sections of his home fans during Saturday's Madrid derby defeat.

    "If they think they should whistle you have to respect their opinions," he said. You are a bigger man than me Iker. If I was you I would do everything within my power to destroy each and every one of them.

  44. GOAL

    Parma 1-1 AC Milan - Antonio Cassano (27 mins)

    Antonio cASSANO

    This game has burst into life! Parma equalise with their first attack after falling behind. They shift the ball across the box superbly from right to left before a cross is drifted into the middle for the onrushing Antonio Cassano to hammer a header into the net. It is a goal against his former club and he clearly enjoyed that. Filippo Inzaghi's disgusted shake of a head shows that he very much did not enjoy it.

  45. GOAL

    Parma 0-1 AC Milan - Giacomo Bonaventura (25 mins)

    Bonaventura has just missed a really good chance but quickly make amends by latching on to a pass into the box and turning his marker before slotting a low shot across Parma keeper Antonio Mirante and into the net. The Milan players and bench react as if they have just won the World Cup. I'm happy for you lads.

    Parma 0-0 AC Milan

    Parma get away with a couple. A Keisuke Honda free-kick is swung over from the right and a host of Milan attackers beat the offside trap but Alex is unable to turn the ball towards the goal with a sliding volley. Soon after, Giacomo Bonaventura rises unmarked in the box to meet a cross but glances his header wide of goal. Finally, there is life in this game.

  48. Post update

    Parma 0-0 AC Milan

    AC Milan v Parma

    It has been a pretty quiet opening 15 minutes between Parma and AC Milan. Lots of patient possession being enjoyed in midfield but precious little action at either end. Cassano is up to some more of his antics, falling under no contact with a scream. This time the ref is fooled and Ammonito Bonera is booked.

  50. Real crisis in Madrid?

    Spanish La Liga

    Atletico Madrid

    What a weekend of Euro action it has been and where else is there to start but at the Bernabeu?

    La Liga champions Atletico Madrid made history by winning back-to-back league matches at bitter rivals Real for the first time in their history.

    Goals from Tiago and Arda Turan sandwiched Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty as Diego Simeone's men continue to defy the odds with a 2-1 win. Real, on the other hand, are 12th in La Liga. As good as Atletico's win was the antics of Simeone in the hospitality box at the Bernabeu, where he was forced to watch from due to a touchline ban. Imagine rage through the medium of silhouette.

  51. Post update

    Parma 0-0 AC Milan

    Antonio Cassano is down on his knees falling a late challenge from Sulley Muntari in the middle of the pitch. The home fans scream for some discipline from the ref but replays show that the Parma man has made the very most of minimal contact. The ref is on to him as well and waits for Cassano to complete his performance before starting the game again.

  52. Post update

    Parma 0-0 AC Milan

    Fernando Torres is all suited and booted as he watches on from the stands. Must be very frustrating for the striker, who will be itching to get going for his new club. On the plus side, he looks pretty dapper. As Philip J. Fry once said, "when you look this good you don't have to know anything".

  53. Post update

    Parma 0-0 AC Milan

    First real chance of the night in Parma goes to the visitors and defender Mattia De Sciglio in particular. He latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the box and puts his foot right through the ball to send it flying high and wide into the stands. If he were a golfer he'd be hunting for that in the long stuff.

  61. This evening's plan

    OK, here is the score for this evening. I'm going to be covering the Parma v AC Milan match and bringing you all the main action from the Stadio Ennio Tardini. I am also going to be doing a bit of a round-up of what has been going on around Europe this weekend in a footballing sense. And some of this weekend's stuff deserves revisiting as there have been some pretty interesting tales. And once all that's done, I'm off home and you can entertain yourselves.

    There's five minutes until kick-off so here are some results from today...

  62. Last season

    Cesena's Guido Marilungo (left) and Parma's Alessandro Lucarelli

    You can forgive Milan for being a bit fired up for this match. Last season, Parma did them twice, winning 3-2 at the Stadio Ennio Tardini and then following that up with an even more impressive 4-2 victory at the San Siro. However, Roberto Donadoni's side didn't start this season too well, losing 1-0 at Cesena. Basically, what I'm saying is that tonight's match could be quite interesting, if you like score-settling shenanigans. My money is on Milan.

  63. Parma team

    And here is the Parma starting XI: Mirante; Ristovski, Felipe, Lucarelli, De Ceglie; Acquah, Lodi, Jorquera; Ghezzal, Cassano, Belfodil.

    The stand-out name in that XI is Antonio Cassano, once seen as Italy's potential saviour but is now looking to rekindle his once stellar career at the Stadio Ennio Tardini. He counts AC Milan amongst his former clubs, along with Real Madrid, Roma and Inter.

  64. Familiar faces

    Nigel de Jong

    To English football fans, there are a couple of immediately recognisable names on that AC Milan teamsheet to satisfy the ex-Premier League quota. In defence, there is former Chelsea defender Alex (so no prisoners will be taken) and in midfield there is ex-Manchester City man Nigel de Jong (to finish anyone off that Alex misses!). De Jong is joined in the middle by ex-Portsmouth and Sunderland man Sulley Muntari.

  66. Donadoni v Inzaghi

    If you love your past Italian playing legends this match is an absolute delight on the managerial front as it pits Roberto Donadoni - he of the curly mullet at Italia 90 - against Filippo Inzaghi, the centre-parted, poacher supreme. All we need now is Toto Schillaci to ref the game, Nessun Dorma over the tannoy and James Richardson sat by a piazza with some papers and we are sorted.

  67. Parma v AC Milan

    Filippo Inzaghi

    I am of course kidding, there's still stuff to talk about, even without old Fernando on the scene. AC Milan are one of the established giants of Italian football, with 18 league titles to their name and seven European Cups under their belt. However, they've had a bit of a tough time of it of late. They finished a disappointing eighth last season, with managers Massimiliano Allegri and Clarence Seedorf both losing their jobs. Current boss Filippo Inzaghi (yes, that Filippo Inzaghi) got off to a decent start this season with victory over Lazio two weeks ago. Today, they travel to Parma and are favourites to make it two wins out of two.

  68. No Fernando

    Fernando Torres

    I'm going to be honest with you, this Euro footy live text was largely going to be about Fernando Torres' new start at AC Milan; his possible rebirth as a footballer after a torrid, largely goalless spell at Chelsea. I would have delved into the psychology of a fallen great, the burden of a hefty price tag and the search for football redemption.

    But Torres has only gone and got himself injured in training and won't be involved against Parma this evening, so all that has gone out of the window. So... Parma v AC Milan then... anyone got any chat?!
