Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ The game was abandoned in the 65th minute because of dense fog and low visibility with the score at 1–0. The game was replayed from the beginning the next day at 3 p.m. with the same starting line-ups, with the exception of Milan players Pietro Paolo Virdis and Carlo Ancelotti; Virdis had been sent off in the abandoned match, while Ancelotti picked up his second yellow card of the competition, meaning that he had to sit out a match.
