Today in Milan's Gemma Thompson is in Italy with the team for the first leg of the last 16 Champions League tie against AC Milan. Check back here for regular updates direct from the Reds' camp. All times are local – Italy is one hour ahead of the UK...

Tuesday 16 February

And now it's time to sign off from Today In Milan, and point you towards Match Tracker for live coverage. Thanks for reading my blog over the last two days and for interacting with me on the message board. Over and out.

20:30 I've just added a couple of final pics to the gallery, including my view from the press box.

20:05 The players are warming up on the pitch, in front of a very loud home crowd. Our fans are tucked away in a top tier but I can still hear them - they're in good voice - and see them - plenty of United flags here at the San Siro.

20:02 It promises to be a cracker, and you can follow it live through Match Tracker on from 19:45 UK, 20:45 local.

19:58 Milan, meanwhile, are fielding this team: Dida, Bonera, Nesta, Thiago Silva, Antonini, Beckham, Pirlo, Ambrosini, Pato, Huntelaar, Ronaldinho. Subs: Abbiati, Gattuso, Inzaghi, Seedorf, Flamini, Favalli, Abate.

19:52 The team news is in and this is how United will line up... Van der Sar, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes, Nani, Rooney, Park. Subs: Kuszczak, Neville, Brown, Gibson, Valencia, Owen, Berbatov.

19:40 I'm at the San Siro and there's an hour or so to go until kick-off (20:45 local time). I walked in with Paddy Crerand who was mobbed by United fans. There's also a mob of media men and women here, so many people want to cover this match. Rumour has it that David Beckham will start for Milan...

17:54 The hotel lobby is absolutely buzzing. There are lots of United and Milan followers with a number of autograph hunters in prime position by the team bus outside. We leave for the San Siro in just under
