Alexis Saelemaekers marked his return to the starting line-up with a goal as he doubled Milan’s advantage against Sassuolo.
In the 27th minute Milan got their second goal, and it was all down to Theo Hernandez. The full-back received the ball well inside his own half from Brahim Diaz and went on a run that must have been at least 70 yards before squaring to Saelemaekers who had the simple task of tapping home from a few yards.
Sandro Tonali deserves credit for his intelligent play too, as he showed good awareness to get out of the action while in an offside position to make sure this time it stood.
🚄 When the TGV hits top speed, get out of the way. Amazing run and intelligent play all around.pic.twitter.com/CS6luCinRo
