AC Milan eased past SPAL in the Coppa Italia round of 16 with another solid display of the new 4-4-2 enacted by Stefano Pioli the past week. Milan heavily rotated with seven changes from the weekend victory against Cagliari away. Piatek picked up the opening goal and provided an assist for the second in a solid performance. Samu Castillejo proved he is up to the task with a great finish while The Hernandez kept pace as Milan's joint top scorer with a scorcher from outside the box.

Milan have won two consecutive games whilst playing the 4-4-2 and will advance in the Coppa Italia to face Torino in the quarter finals. If Milan succeed, they will face one of Juventus or AS Roma in the semi finals.
