Milan re-emerge from the half-time interval a changed team and secure an absolutely crucial victory - beating Atalanta by two goals to nil en-route to their fifth home clean sheet in a row. Pioli’s side started the game evidently nervous, with the weight of the Scudetto race firmly on their shoulders. After a tight 45 minutes that saw few chances, the Rossoneri came alive with outstanding goals from both Leao and Hernandez; the second a sublime solo effort that saw the full-back run three-quarters of the pitch - beating no less than five defenders in the process. Atalanta looked livelier after the introductions of Zapata and Boga but it was too little too late for Gasperini’s side - who failed to beat the imperious Maignan. The win puts Milan five points ahead of Inter with one game left on the calendar, while Atalanta remain eighth.
