Three consecutive wins in the league, three goals scored and three points taken on matchday 3 of Serie A. Unlocking the door in AC Milan v Spezia did not prove easy, but after they did so the Rossoneri hit the gas and dominated the second half. The Diavolo flew at San Siro and are now level on points with league leaders Atalanta (9).
