FULL TIME – AC Milan 2-0 Venezia
It’s all over at the San Siro. Milan have got the job done. They had a tough first half, but stepped up when they needed to after the break and took care of business.

Theo Hernandez kills it. Good work from Saelemaekers to make it, playing the full-back in to finish emphatically.
Minute 75 – Pellegri’s on!
Here he comes for his debut!
Minute 67 – GOAL MILAN!
Brahim Diaz makes amends. A simple tap-in from close range after a centre from Theo.
Minute 64 – Embarrassing from Tonali
Tonali goes down looking for a penalty, but his attempt is so bad that even Pioli holds up an apologetic hand. Poor.
Minute 58 – Venezia threaten
It’s from nowhere, but Johnson sends an audacious shot wayward.

Milan should probably lead. They work a chance but Brahim can only send it over.
