AC Milan are edging closer to a first Serie A title since 2011 following a 2-0 win over Atalanta.

AC Milan sit on the brink of a first Serie A title in over a decade after goals from Rafael Leao and Theo Hernandez sealed a 2-0 win over Atalanta.

San Siro was fire.

Milan, who were last league champions in 2011, are five points clear of reigning champions Inter Milan who need a win at Cagliari later on Sunday to remain in the title chase with one game left next weekend.

The game changed in the second half with the introduction of a couple of substitutes and Rafael Leao got the opening goal of the match with a fantastic touch and finish from Junior Messias’ through ball.

Theo Hernandez doubled the advantage with 15 minutes left after a lung-busting solo run from the edge of his own 18-yard box into the Atalanta area, slotting past Musso in the Nerazzurri goal with confidence.

The result means that Inter now have to win against Cagliari in the evening kick-off to take the title race to the final round of action, while Milan would just need a point away against Sassuolo to win it regardless.

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 sunday’s win could prove priceless.
