Milan claim a vital 2-0 victory over Benevento to return to the top of Serie A, despite spending 60 minutes down to 10 men. The away side started confidently and quickly asserted themselves when Kessie scored from the spot after a foul on Rebic. However, Tonali’s poor challenge on Ionati 30 minutes in completely altered the game. From there, Milan had to withstand plenty of pressure from the hosts, but Leao’s stunning chip alleviated their fears in the second half. Benevento continued to pile the pressure on after this, but squandered many promising openings as Milan held on for a precious win.
