AC Milan move a step closer to Serie A title with win over Atalanta

Published on: 16 May 2022

AC Milan took a huge step towards the Serie A title on Sunday with a 2-0 win at home over Atalanta, which puts them within touching distance of lifting the Scudetto.

The Rossoneri weren't at their best but sealed the three points thanks to two second half strikes.

The first from Rafael Leao, who was so impressive in last week's win at Verona, was a strong finish after a good ball over the top from Junior Messias.

Then, in the 75th minute left-back Theo Hernandez sealed the win with a contender for goal of the season. The Frenchman picked the ball up just outside his own area and ran almost the length of the pitch, evading the attention of several defenders before firing home a left-footed shot across goal.

The win puts AC Milan five points ahead of rivals Inter, who are still to play Calgliari on Sunday night. Should the Nerazzurri fail to win, AC Milan will be champions before the final round of matches.

Whatever happens, it's in AC Milan's hands and today's win could prove priceless.
