– Theo Hernandez’s superb goal sealed AC Milan’s victory over Atalanta to put them on the verge of their first Serie A title for 11 years.

– The French left-back’s solo run and finish sparked wild celebrations at a raucous San Siro, with Rafael Leao having already scored for the hosts.

– Stefano Pioli’s side are now unbeaten in their last 15 league matches.

– Their closest rivals Inter are five points behind and face Cagliari in their penultimate game later on Sunday.

– A tense affair had seen Milan initially struggle to break down a well organised Atalanta side chasing a European place.

– However, Junior Messias’ second-half introduction as a substitute reaped immediate dividends.

– The Brazilian’s second touch sent Leao through on goal and the Portugal forward drove an effort through the legs of visiting goalkeeper Juan Musso to put Milan in front.

– While there were several anxious moments for the hosts in defence, Hernandez’s sublime goal settled any nerves and transferred any pressure firmly across to city rivals and reigning champions Inter.

– Should the title race go to the final day on 22 May, Milan can still win the Scudetto with a draw at Sassuolo with Inter hosting Sampdoria.
