AC Milan recorded a brilliant win as they booked their spot in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, where they will take on Inter over two legs. The 4-0 win over Lazio at San Siro was the product of a mature display from our boys, who wrapped up qualification before half time with a goal from Leão and a Giroud brace. Kessie then added a fourth in the second half. Let's take a look back at the game against the Biancocelesti with ten stats.
