MILAN HAVE MOVED to the fifth place in the standings and are just six points away from a Champions League spot after beating Atalanta at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. Atalanta started the game better but didn’t have any real chances to score so Milan took the charge around the 20th minute and looked very comfortable on the ball. The goal came in the 29′ minute as Stephan El Shaarawy broke his Serie A goal-drought after a fine assist from M’Baye Niang to put Milan in front. Atalanta barely bothered Milan and saw their man, Davide Brivio, sent off in the 59′ minute for two yellow cards. Atalanta were actually better after the sent off as Milan took their leg off the gas but Atalanta couldn’t find beat Christian Abbiati who had a rather quiet afternoon. Milan take the three points as the journey for third continues.
