I hope that you have enjoyed our live coverage of the match here on Skysports.com. Thank you very much for joining me. Have a good night, it's goodbye from me for now.
The hosts were in control of the contest right from the moment Diego Costa scored in the third minute, and he rounded up the scoring five minutes from time. Arda Turan and Raul Garcia were also on target for the Madrid outfit, while Kaka scored what eventually turned out to be a mere consolation for the Italian giants.
Atletico Madrid have progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the expense of AC Milan. The Spanish club have won the second leg of their last-16 tie 4-1 to go through 5-1 on aggregate.
The Milan players are visibly frustrated as Pazzini screams and Balotelli looks dejected. This is a Milan side that has been humiliated - 4-1 in the second leg as it stands, 5-1 on aggregate to Atletico.
Diego Costa has shown some really audacious confidence tonight and his second goal of the evening typifies that. Just before he scored, he was simply latching onto the ball inside the Milan box and was waiting for the defenders to come at him. Simply brilliant!
GOAL!!! DIEGO COSTA SCORES! The Spain international striker scores his second goal of the evening after collecting the ball on the edge of the Milan box and then drilling it past Abbiati from an acute angle on the right.
Meanwhile, Atletico coach Simeone makes another change. Diego comes on for Koke, who has been brilliant tonight.
Cristian Rodriguez tries to get in on the act rightaway as he floats in a cross from the left flank that is held capably by Christian Abbiati.
With 15 minutes of normal time remaining, it would be safe to say that Atletico Madrid have secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Diego Simeone's side are 3-1 up in the second leg of the last-16 tie and 4-1 ahead on aggregate.
OFF THE CROSSBAR! Milan reply almost immediately and Robinho is unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet, as his first-time effort from inside the Atletico box gets the crossbar.
GOAL!!! RAUL GARCIA SCORES! Atletico Madrid make it 3-1 on the night as Raul Garcia heads in a floated free kick from close range. Great determination!
Diego Costa shows loads of confidence by keeping the ball on his feet inside the Milan penalty area for longer than he should have. Eventually Gabi gets a shot across the face of the goal.
Very attack-minded change from Milan coach Seedorf. Striker Giampaolo Pazzini comes on for midfielder Michae Essien.
Milan are getting desperate now and that is bringing out their lack of imagination ever more. The Rossoneri are really lacking any kind of identity on how they plan to approach their attacks tonight.
Raul Garcia tries to get his shot on target from inside the Milan while on the turn, but his shot goes wide.
Brilliant play from Diego Costa down the right flank, as he rushes to the byline and then floats in a cross that Miranda heads towards goal. However, Christian Abbiati makes an easy save between the Milan posts.
Half an hour left in this contest, and I do not really see any comeback from Milan. Just 30 more minutes before Atletico can claim their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The Italian striker takes the set piece, but it is deflected out for a corner, which yields nothing for the visitors.
Free kick to Milan in a dangerous position. Balotelli will take it after picking himself up following a challenge from Mario Suarez
Rami is back on his feet now and everything gets back to normal. He is touching his head to see if he is bleeding or not, though.
Rami is rolling down on the ground and seems to have been hit in the head by an acrobatic attempt from Costa. The Milan defender is not bleeding, but he appears to be in some pain.
Milan showing some signs of a fightback as Thibaut Courtois is forced into making a good save from a left-wing cross that could have created a problem for the hosts, who are 2-1 up in this match and 3-1 ahead on aggregate.
Another good attack from Atletico, this time from the left flank, as Luis tries to get a cross into the Milan box. He manages to earn a corner, which yields nothing for the home team.
Gabi injured himself during that counter-attack and had to seek medical attention, but he is now back in play.
OFF THE POST! Filipe Luis concedes a corner in the second minute of the second half. Milan fail to make the most of it and the home side go on a counter-attack, which culminates in Gabi hitting the frame of the visitors' goal. Relief for Milan.
And as soon as it gets underway, Costa gets in on the act with a shot from a narrow angle on the right, but it flashes past Abbiati's far post.

So what have you made of this match so far? Do you think that Milan still have a chance? Or are you of the opinion that Atletico are pretty much in the quarter-finals of the Champions League? Let me know your views and I will post them here on this page.
Diego Costa broke the deadlock for the Spanish club as early as the third minute to put Atletico 2-0 up on aggregate, but Kaka threatened to stage a comeback for the Rossoneri on 27 minutes when he scored. However, Arda Turan's deflected effort five minutes from half time saw the home side head into the break 2-1 ahead in the second leg and 3-1 on aggregate.
It's half time at the Vicente Calderon in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie between Atletico Madrid and AC Milan, and it's 2-1 to the hosts.
Balotelli goes on a run down the left flank, but he is stopped in his tracks on the edge of the Atletico penalty box.
Three minutes of injury time have been awarded at the end of the first half, as Mario Balotelli is shown a yellow card for what I believe is dissent.
What a sensational acrobatic effort from Raul Garcia that goes just wide of Christian Abbiati's goal! Brilliant attempt from the Atletico Madrid player!
That second Atletico goal is surely enough for them to go through to the last eight? Surely, there is no way back for Milan now...?
GOAL!!!! ATLETICO MADRID EXTEND THEIR ADVANTAGE! A chipped ball from central midfield is eventually directed towards Arda Turan by Raul Garcia just outside the Milan penalty box. He proceeds to shoot on goal and his effort is deflected off of Rami and into the Milan net. 2-1 to Atletico in this match
Raul Garcia goes down after going for the same ball as Milan midfielder Nigel De Jong. The Atletico players want the referee to show the Dutchman a yellow card, but the referee lets him get away with a stern warning.
Milan are showing more urgency now and are also committing more men forward. A Mario Suarez mistake in midfield almost allows the Rossoneri to create yet another good chance, but the Atletico defence foil their plan.
KAKA! What a chance for the Brazilian playmaker! Milan earn a corner that is taken short. Adel Taarabt collects the ball on the right and then floats in an inviting cross that Kaka heads over the crossbar. Once again, he was left unmarked inside the Atletico penalty box.
Atletico gradually push forward as Koke swings in a rather poor cross from the right flank that goes out at the other end. Milan launch a quick counter-attack, with Kaka sending a long through-ball for Balotelli, but the Italian striker fails to get there in time.
The Atleti supporters are in full voice as well. They know that their team are still favourites to go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League despite conceding.
Having said that, Atletico do not appear rattled at all They are just carrying on - the goal they have conceded does not appear to have affected them much.
Half an hour gone in this match and suddenly Milan appear to be rejuvenated. However, there is a long way to go for the Rossoneri - they are 2-1 down on aggregate.
THAT is a genuine lifeline for Milan, who have really looked unimaginative in attack so far tonight. However, Kaka's goal could turn around their fortunes.
GOAL!!! KAKA SCORES AND MAKES IT 1-1! This time it is Atletico who are caught out in defence, as Andrea Poli is released down the right from where he floats in a cross, which Kaka heads home at the back post. Unmarked. Game on!
Chance for Milan and one that could have proved to be crucial if they had taken it. A cross comes in from the right for Balotelli inside the Atletico box, but there are two defenders attending to the striker and the danger is cleared.
Adel Taarabt tries to weave his way through the Atletico defence and does some good work on his own, but he cannot find anyone to pass the ball to and eventually loses possession
Milan have failed to score in each of their last two Champions League games. If they fail tonight, then that will see them equal their worst such run in the competition.
Filipe Luis finds himself with the ball down the left wing and floats in a cross, but it is easily and quickly intercepted by Adil Rami. The home side are all over their visitors at the moment.
Koke goes down under a challenge from Daniele Bonera just outside the Milan penalty box. The Vicente Calderon shouts for a penalty, but the referee waves play on.
Atletico have identified Milan's left side of defence as a weak link, as once again three players combine down that flank.
Poor free kick from Balotelli, who fails to get his shot from over 35 yards over the Atletico wall. The ball hits Costa in his groin and he goes down in visible pain.
It is really looking dire for Milan, who have mustered no kinds of attacking moves whatsoever so far. However, they do have a chance with a long-range free kick now as Miranda brings down Mario Balotelli.
Terrible, terrible defending from Milan as they almost allow Atletico to sneak in a second goal of the evening! However, the danger is eventually cleared away for a corner that comes to Costa, who tries his luck from distance but in vain.
Some signs of a Milan recovery maybe, as Ignazio Abate tries to barge into the Atletico box down the right, but he is closed down by the home defence and the danger is cleared.
Ten minutes gone in the match and Milan are all but out of the Champions League. They are 2-0 down on aggregate, and I don't really see how they can get the better of this Atleti side, who have dominated the second leg so far.
Atletico almost make it 2-0! This time it is a free kick from the right wing that Koke and Raul Garcia both try to turn it on goal. The shot is eventually taken, but it is easy for Abbiati. It is all Atletico at the moment.
The match has come into life, and in the second minute I was complaining that it had been slow! The free kick is taken short and a delivery is eventually floated into the box, but Christian Abbiati has no problem in grabbing the ball.
Now Adil Rami of Milan is shown a yellow card for stopping Costa when he was looking to go on a drive towards goal.
What a sensational start from Atletico Madrid - they are 2-0 up on aggregate! And Milan are punished! The defending was atrocious as the Milan players were caught ball-watching, and Costa makes no mistake in scoring yet another goal.
GOAL!!! DIEGO COSTA SCORES! Atletico launch an attack down the right flank and Koke floats in a cross, which Diego Costa acrobatically puts into the net from just yards out.
There has been a slow start to the match, a rather scrappy one actually. The two sides seem to be getting into the rhythm.
The second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie between Atletico Madrid and AC Milan is now underway.
Let's quickly remind ourselves how things stand at the moment. Atletico are 1-0 up against Milan from the first leg played in Italy last month. So a 0-0 draw would be enough for them to go through to the quarter-finals. As for the Rossoneri, they need to score tonight in Madrid to stand a chance.
The two teams are on the pitch now and the Champions League anthem is being played. Kickoff is just minutes away!
Meanwhile, Atletico have won all 19 UEFA competition ties in which they won the away first leg. The Rojiblancos have also won each of their last four UEFA competition matches against Italian clubs.
Some interesting facts for you now... Since winning the Champions League in 2007, Milan have only progressed past the round of last 16 once. The Italian giants have aso failed to turn around a first-leg home deficit on each of the past five occasions in UEFA competitions.
Seedorf is, of course, a Champions League great - the first player to have won the competition four times and with three different clubs: Ajax in 1995, Real Madrid in 1998 and Milan in 2003 and 2007. Could this be his night in Madrid tonight?
AC Milan boss Clarence Seedorf believes that his side still have a change of progressing to the quarter-finals: 'It is an open game. Maybe they have an advantage but we are going into the game with the mentality of it being level. Diego Costa and Balotelli are two very important players but we cannot forget about the rest of the players taking part. I have seen a lot of Atletico this season and the team play very well as a group. We will be focusing on all of their players, David Villa included, I believe he is very important. We are ready for what will be a hard battle. We are going into this match on the back of a defeat so this will be an important occasion. We will apply the same tactics as in the first leg, and while giving all due respect to Atletico, we will try to exploit our attacking power over the 90 minutes. We have to score goals. We saw in the first leg what our possibilities were. The difference in the score is minimal and the tie is still very much open. When you lose the first leg, it is marvellous to be able to play again in a tie of such importance on the European stage. We can write history once more. It is always great to play in a stadium like this. We do not have to be worried by the atmosphere. We are ready for this kind of game.'
As kickoff time approaches, let's hear what the two managers had to say ahead of tonight's match. First up, Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone: 'Great players appear in these matches. They have very good players and we can only expect the best of Milan. Balotelli is a dominant player, but Milan are dangerous in many other areas. He is dangerous but needs his team-mates around him. The result of the away leg means Milan need to look for a goal. We have to stop them and control the game. Intensity in midfield will be the key. If we are not well-protected in midfield, we will have an open match and it will be better for them. We must control the midfield and try to close down space. They are a very attacking team and we must take care with their quick players. If we can't control this, we will suffer.'
Kickoff is just around 15 minutes away, so send your pre-match predictions and I will post them on this page!
At the other end is Diego Costa, Atletico Madrid's star forward. The 25-year-old has emerged as one of the most lethal and most potent strikers in European football and will be looking to his Champions League tally tonight. The Brazil-born Spain international has scored five goals in the competition this season.
Balotelli - He is Milan's biggest hope tonight. The 23-year-old striker, who was in fine form for Milan in the second half of last season, has not really been at the top of his game this campaign, and has also struggled with injuries. However, he needs to regain his form if Milan are to stage a comeback.
However, Chris Green from Huddersfield backs Milan to win tonight and progress to the quarter-finals. He writes: 'AC Milan to win 2-0, with Balotelli getting a brace.'
Now contrast that with Atletico's form. The Spanish club, who are aiming to reach the last eight of the Champions League for the first time in 17 years, have yet to lose in the competition this campaign. Moreover, the Madrid outfit have not suffered a single loss at the Calderon in any competition all season.
The odds are heavily stacked against the Italian giants. History is against them too - Milan must become only the third team in Champions League history to overturn a home first-leg defeat to go through. Moreover, the Rossoneri's last four away defeats in European competition have all come on Spanish soil.
Kickoff is at 7.45pm and things are beginning to get exciting. Atletico are the favourites with a 1-0 away win and Milan have not really been very convincing under new coach Clarence Seedorf, but the Rossoneri cannot be written off.
Gabi, Arda Turan, Koke and Mario Suarez all start in midfield, with Diego Godin marshalling the defence for the Rojiblancos.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has made just one change from the first leg: Filipe Luis returns to the lineup after recovering from injury. Diego Costa, who scored the winner in Milan, leads the Spanish club's attack, while Raul Garcia will play just off him.
Michael Essien, once at Chelsea, also starts for the Rossoneri. He will be partnered in central midfield by Nigel De Jong, while Riccardo Montolivo serves his suspension and January signing Keisuke Honda is cup-tied.
So the big team news for Milan is that Mario Balotelli starts for them. The Italy international has been struggling with a shoulder injury of late, but he has shrugged it off to start at the Calderon tonight. He will have Kaka, Andrea Poli and Adel Taarabt to support him from attacking midfield.
AC MILAN XI: Abbiati; Abate, Bonera, Rami, Emanuelson; Essien, De Jong; Poli, Kaka, Taarabt; Balotelli
ATLETICO MADRID XI: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe; Mario Suarez, Koke, Arda Turan, Gabi; Raul Garcia; Diego Costa
