AC Milan - Borussia Dortmund summary: score, goals, highlights | Champions League

Update:
Reus, Bynoe-Gittens and Adeyemi are on target as Dortmund defeat Christian Pulisic’s Milan to reach the UCL round of 16.

AC Milan - Borussia Dortmund as it happened: Dortmund reach last 16

Full time: AC Milan 1-3 Borussia Dortmund

A well-deserved victory for Borussia Dortmund, who survived an early scare to become the first team in Group F to qualify for the round of 16.

Milan started quickly and won an early penalty, but it went mostly downhill for them from then on after Giroud missed from the spot. The Germans immediately went up the other end and were awarded a penalty of their own, with Reus showing the French striker how it’s done from 12 yards.

Erdin Terzic’s men were dangerous on the break, with Bynoe-Gittens especially threatening down the left. However, Chukwueze levelled for the hosts out of nowhere, netting from a seemingly harmless position out on the right a few minutes before half time.

That gave the Italians hope going into the second half but the reality is that they never got going. Dortmund’s passing was sharper and more incisive, with a well-worked move ending with Bynoe-Gittens restoring their lead just before the hour-mark.

And the visitors wasted little time in extending their advantage, although Maignan will feel he should’ve kept out Adeyemi’s strike from the edge of the box.

Dortmund would’ve expected a Milan rally in the final 20 minutes but it never came, with a speculative header from Jovic, which came off the outside of the post, the closest the Rossoneri came to threatening a comeback.

A moment of promise for the hosts as Loftus-Cheek finds space in the box but his ball across the face of goal finds no takers.

Füllkrug almost breaks the bar in half!

Absolutely fantastic play from Adeyemi on the left, who skips round two Milan players and picks out Füllkrug, who smashes the ball as hard as he can against the crossbar!

That Jovic header aside, Dortmund are keeping the ball really well and limiting Milan to almost nothing.

He's hardly been involved but Füllkrug almost gets a fourth! His first sight of goal but his header is too high and floats behind for a goal kick.

Chukwueze gets past Adeyemi down the right but is then faced with two more yellow jerseys as he tries to break into the box. No way through.

Absolutely no urgency from the Italians, which is bizarre. They've been seriously lacking ideas throughout.

Still 1-0 to Newcastle away to PSG. If the French side are able to turn that around, they and Dortmund will be through.

This is not looking good for Milan, who've been really disappointing.

The French goalkeeper thought he'd got back in time to claw it out, but goal-line technology confirmed the ball had crossed the line.

Dortmund have men over on the left, who of whom is Adeyemi. He comes inside and shoots, with Maignan making a mess of it as it just bounces over the line!

GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAL DORTMUND! ADEYEMI!

Is that game over?!

Giroud is still with us! The striker gets his head on a cross from the right but can only divert the ball into the grateful arms of Kobel.

Tomori is first in the book after some handbags in the box at a Milan corner (which comes to nothing).

Bynoe-Gittens is off, replaced by Wolf.

Bynoe-Gittens is again a threat down the left but his low cross is well claimed by Maignan.

Dortmund look to be growing in confidence. There's a bit more zip about their passing now. This is going to be an uphill battle for Milan. 

as.com

What do Milan do now? What they're doing isn't really working. We've hardly seen anything of Giroud since he missed that penalty...

That's all down to a delightful touch from Füllkrug, who's not really been in this game. The striker deftly finds Sabitzer, whose short pass allows Bynoe-Gittens to shoot first time low into the net!

GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL DORTMUND! BYNOE-GITTENS!

Oh no. Malick Thiaw is going to have to go off here after feeling his hamstring go ping. He did well to keep up with Bynoe-Gittens but paid the price for it.

That could have been a Pulisic wondergoal! Calabria's crosses flips up in the air and the attacker goes for a bicycle kick, which he looks to connect well with. It appears to be goalbound but is blocked by a yellow shirt!

Much better defending this time from Dortmund as Chukwueze tries to dance his way between two players, just as he did for the goal. No way through.

Half time: AC Milan 1-1 Borussia Dortmund

A tale of two penalties in the opening stages, as Giroud spurned an immediate chance to put Milan in the driving seat from the spot. Minutes later, the Frenchman and his team were punished, Reus showing him how it’s done from 12 yards.

The hosts had most of the ball but it was the Germans who were more dangerous on the counterattack, with Bynoe-Gittens especially dangerous down the left.

Further clear-cut chances were few and far between at either end, however, until Chukwueze created something out of nothing from a seemingly unthreatening position out on the right a few minutes before half time.

All to play for in the second half!

Chukwueze levels for Milan

A great goal or terrible defending? As ever, it's probably somewhere in the middle. The winger did well to wriggle between defenders, who will feel they should've shut him out.

Chukwueze layoff is incredibly inviting for Adli but his shot from a promising position is blocked before it reaches Kobel's goal.

Interesting...shall we say...from Reijnders, who backheels the ball out of trouble on his own goal line. It ended up looking fantastic as it went to a teammate, but that could've gone horribly wrong...

as.com

And just like that, everything is back up in the air in Group F.

It's a brilliant goal from the Nigerian, who looks to be going nowhere out on the right flank, gets between two defenders, comes inside and shoots low into the far corner! Perhaps not the best defending, admittedly...

Newcastle lead PSG in Paris

This time it's Calabria who has to keep his wits about him as Malen tries a big switch of play, with both Reus and Bynoe-Gittens bearing down on the defender. The Milan man does well to guide the ball make to Maignan.

32

Speaking or lovely, Hernández curls a beautiful cross into the box which Kobel does just about enough to claim ahead of Chukwueze. The Dortmund keeper looks to be hurt, though.

31

Lovely, lovely feet from Reijnders to spin into space inside the Dortmund half. His pass, however, goes to a yellow shirt, rendering his loveliness pointless.

Tomori had to stay strong there and he did, which was just as well for Milan. Malen almost gets in behind again but the defender is able to hold him off.

Ryerson shot blocked!

A second looked imminent there for the visitors! Ryerson is all alone at the back post but Hernández scampers across to get a block in just in the nick of time!

Another corner for Milan as Pulisic and then Calabria loft crosses into the box. A couple of decent balls in but no takers in the middle.

23

Dortmund are causing problems on the break! It's Malen who gets in behind this time and Maignan has to get down to cut out his low cross into the six-yard box.

22

Pulisic tests Kobel!

The USMNT captain shoots low from the edge of the box but it's a relatively easy stop for Kobel. I'm not sure it was even going in, in fact.

20

Milan force a couple of corners, with the second one coming after some serious flapping from Kobel, which won't have inspired confidence in the Dortmund defence. Nothing comes of either of them, though.

Ooooh, Giroud's eyes lit up at Hernández's cross down the other end, but Schlotterbeck just got enough on it to flick it away!

AC Milan - Borussia Dortmund: overall head-to-head record

The teams’ first European meeting came all the way back in 1957-58, just the third ever season of the European Cup. Milan won 5-2 on aggregate in the quarter-finals and went on to reached the final, where they lost to Real Madrid (obviously).

They then had to wait more than 40 years to play each other again, when their paths crossed in two consecutive seasons. The Germans won the 2001-02 UEFA Cup semi-final 5-3 over two legs but were defeated in the final by Feyenoord, before the teams traded 1-0 away victories in the second group stage of the 2002-03 Champions League, which Milan won.

Borussia Dortmund: the 2023-24 season so far

Dortmund came agonisingly close to winning the Bundesliga last season, somehow managing to throw it away on the last weekend. It doesn't look like they'll be mounting another title challenge this year, with Xabi Alonso's rejuvenated Bayer Leverkusen setting a relentless pace at the top of the table. BVB are already 10 points behind the leaders and eight adrift of second-placed Bayern Munich. Just one win in four league matches has seen them fall behind at the summit.

But they are top of the tree in Champions League Group F, twice beating Newcastle and drawing the first game against Milan after losing the opener to PSG.

AC Milan: the 2023-24 season so far

Milan haven't been in great form in recent weeks, winning only two of their last seven games in all competitions. But they brought a four-game winless league run to an end against Fiorentina at the weekend and are in third spot in Serie A, six points behind leaders Inter. Stefano Pioli's men won seven of their first eight league fixtures, although the other saw them thrashed 5-1 by their city rivals. 

It's been a mixed bag in the Champions League, with two 0-0 draws followed by a loss and then a win against Paris Saint-Germain.

USMNT star Reyna will hope to make an impact from the bench at San Siro, with the fact he isn't in the starting line-up not coming as a huge surprise.

We’ll all have to wait just a little though, as the clash in Italy gets underway at 9:00 p.m. local time, which is 3:00 p.m. ET and 12:00 p.m. PT. Let’s hope you’ve decided to work from home today (those of you who can)…

Over the next 90 minutes or so I’ll be bringing you build-up, team news and plenty more. Let's do this!

Hello and welcome to AC Milan - Borussia Dortmund!

Matchday five of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League group stage is upon and, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, welcome to the Group of Death! It’s anyone’s guess as to which two of AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United will make it out of Group F alive, although we might have a clearer picture in a few hours’ time.

I’m Roddy and thanks for joining me as USMNT duo Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna (potentially) go head-to-head as Milan face Dortmund at San Siro!
