Less than ten minutes into the match at the San Siro, and Catania -- one of the darlings of Serie A this season, have already fallen behind. Milan flew into this match, attacking instantly, flooding the area with bodies. Gli Elefanti panicked a bit when Robinho got loose with the ball, prompting a rash challenge from behind by Davide Lanzafame. The defender was rewarded with a yellow as the referee rightly pointed to the spot, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic neatly knocked it into the left-hand corner.
This match is shaping up to be a cracker. Massimo Ambrosini earned his own yellow card just a couple minutes after the penalty kick. Catania had appeals for a handball in the area waved away. Meanwhile, the visitors remain determined to get forward and score.
