Milan finished the season in the best way possible, beating Cagliari comfortably at the San Siro with a 3-0 scoreline.
Although they didn’t reach fifth place, Stefano Pioli and his men deserve a lot of praise. The Rossoneri took the lead early on through an own-goal, after Rafael Leao managed to beat his opponent on the left flank.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed a penalty just before half-time but got his revenge in the second half, sending a rocket past the goalkeeper to double Milan’s lead. Samu Castillejo then killed the game with the third goal, assisted by Jack Bonaventura.
Below are the reactions of the Milan players on social media…
Gianluigi Donnarumma: “A great end for the team 💪🏼 Too bad we didn’t live it as close as we would have liked but we know that, even from afar, you have always been with us. Thank you!”
Davide Calabria: “Happy holidays!”
