Milan created many opportunities in the second half, but frustration got the best of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was sent off for intentionally punching Bari defender Marco Rossi. Substitute Antonio Cassano was the hero of the night, scoring a goal late in the second half and salvaging a point for Milan, who failed to widen the gap from Inter and Napoli.
