Match Recap: AC Milan too much for Cagliari in a 3-0 win at the San Siro



Milan easily could have scored four or five goals in a fairly dominant win at home AC Milan hosted Cagliari after watching a few of the teams around them win over the weekend and leapfrog them and leave Milan out of the Champions League spots. Milan would therefore need a win to stay in the race and to stay abreast of the likes of Lazio and AS Roma.
Milan responded to the pressure with a quality 3-0 win that could have quite easily been four or five to nil after Milan put in one of their most dominant performances of the new year. The additions of Lucas Paquetà and Krzysztof Piatek in the January transfer window were the difference, as both of them scored, with Paquetà even scoring his first goal for Milan.

Milan?s first goal came in the 13th minute from an own goal after Suso had whipped in a cross in the direction of Krzysztof Piatek. It was turned into the net by Cagliari?s Luca Cepptielli after the Cagliari goalkeeper, Alessio Cragno, had punched the ball straight at his defender.
It was a justified lead, as Milan had come out of the blocks charging, in contrast to the reverse fixture which had seen Milan give up an early goal and spend the rest of the match trying to claw their way back into the match.
