AC Milan beat Sassuolo on the road in a tight encounter to end the side's loss-less streak and to put an insurmountable gap between 7th and 8th. The 2-1 victory guarantees Milan one of the Europa League spots for next season either through qualification (6th and 7th) or straight to the group stages (5th).

Zlatan Ibrahimovic finally got back to scoring and managed to bag a brace both of Hakan Calhanoglu's assists to pip Sassuolo. The home side picked up a red card late in the first half and the game got cagey. Milan had a lot of opportunities to score more but were not clinical in front of goal. This game hurts Milan a lot as Bennacer and Hernandez picked up bookings hence will miss the Atalanta game. Alessio Romagnoli and Andre Conti picked up injuries and could miss the next game too.
