After going a goal down to Mihajlovic’s Torino in the Coppa Italia - Vincenzo Montella’s Milan rallied in the second half to provide a sterling performance to soundly put away Torino.

The Rossoneri were pegged back early on after being caught on the break and punished by Belotti.

After going in at the break a goal down, Milan found spirit through an incredibly scrappy goal from Kucka.

Kucka’s goal warmed the blood of the Rossoneri, who decided to wake up and dispatch Torino. Bonaventura’s classy finish would claim the spoils for Milan.

Milan, now in the quarter final of this season’s edition, fell at the final hurdle last year, as they battled so hard to reach the Coppa Italia final, only to succumb to Juventus. The Rossoneri got their initial revenge in December, when they claimed the Supercoppa - but they still have a job to do here.

With three more wins - Milan could claim the cup.
