WITH ONE HAND ON THE TROPHY: Milan crossed out Atalanta, it's Sassuolo's turn!

The football players of Milan defeated Atalanta at “San Siro” with 2: 0 in the penultimate round of Serie A. Stefano Pioli’s team is one step away from the trophy.

The Rossoneri entered the match very well and created more opportunities during the first half. Chances lined up, Hernandez and Leao tried, and the team from Bergamo threatened through Zapakosta and Muriel.

However, Milan went hard in the second half, and Stefano Pioli decided to refresh the attack with Rebic and Messias.

The Brazilian made a key step toward victory. He sent a deep ball, and Rafael Leao gave himself an advantage with an ideal first contact, and then masterfully defeated goalkeeper Muso for 1: 0.

Theo Hernandez put an end to the match in the 73rd minute. He pulled the ball from his own half, escaped the defense, and then shot from the penalty area precisely on the ground for 2: 0.

It was not much of a problem for Milan to routinely bring the match to an end. Atlanta had a chance in 85. a minute over Zapata to equalize, but the Italian failed to defeat Maignan.

Milan now has 83 points, five more than Inter, which has fewer matches and is visiting Cagliari from 20 hours and 45 minutes.

In case the Nerazzurri “stumble” in Sardinia, Milan would become the Italian champion before the end and reach the 19th title, the first since 2011.

In the last round, the Rossoneri are visiting Sassuolo, while Inter welcomes Sampdoria at home.
