Atalanta suffered from Musso’s 25th-minute own goal after Theo Hernandez cannoned a long-range volley that hit the frame before the goalkeeper’s back tap it in.

The lead was doubled quite late, thanks to Messias’ sublime chip that beat Musso. Rafael Leao was also deserved a praise with his through ball that set up for Messias.

The momentum that carries on

Milan has won four games in a row in all competitions without conceding a goal for the first time since February 2018 (3 games in Serie A and 2 in the Europa League).

The momentum should give Rossoneri little hope of retaining the Scudetto.

The King has returned

Since undergoing knee surgery in May 2022, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his first appearance as coach Pioli subbed the Swedish striker late in the game.
