Roma Vs. AC Milan, 2011 Serie A: 2nd Half Just As Action-Packed As 1st

Away we go for the second half, and it's keeping up the frenetic pace of the first thus far. Within minutes of the restart, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has broken free of Roma's defence to set up a great chance for himself, but he dawdled a little too long and ended up planting his shot straight into Nicolas Burdisso's face. Ouch. At the other end, Bojan Krkic skips away from a couple of tackles, but his run has taken him wide and the subsequent shot was hopeless.

And now we're getting fun injuries - Fernando Gago, who's not really been at his best, goes in the book for a nasty lunge on Antonio Nocerino and Robinho has sprouted what looked like a horrible fungal growth but actually turned out to be a blue ice pack for a blow to his head. Fun!

Oh, and Bojan should have levelled - he's done all the hard work in wandering through the entire Milan defence only to be unable to guide the ball home with Christian Abbiati beaten. He should have done much, much better there. Miralem Pjanic does much better with a free kick from 35 yards, but Abbiati is able to palm away. Corner time.
