Second half starting with Cagliari adding fresh energy in the midfield.  In the 45th minute, midfielder João Pedro replacing defender Alejandro Gonzalez.

Bam!   Cagliari equalizing the score following a fast break.   There it is forward Diego Farias defeating AC Milan goalkeeper Diego Lopez with a right footed shot in the center.   The assist is by forward Marco Sau.  This is the 4th goal by Farias.  Well, Farias took the best part leaving frustrated Milan defender Philippe Mexes.

Redemption time for Mexes!   In the 49th minute, there it is Mexes fixing his previous error to score following a corner conceded by Cagliari defender Luca Ceppitelli.   The assist is by forward Menez with a cross finding Mexes ready  to defeat goalkeeper Brkic with a right footed shot in the bottom left corner.
