AC Milan cruised to a 5-0 win over Alessandria in their Coppa Italia semi-final second leg clash at the San Siro on Tuesday night to book their place in the final.
The Rossoneri took a 1-0 lead into the game as they look to end their 13-year wait to win the trophy, and it began well in the first half with Jeremy Menez scoring his first goal of the season.
With the Frenchman hoping to put his injury woes behind him having missed the majority of the season thus far, he will undoubtedly take plenty of confidence from his performance on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Alessio Romagnoli bagged a double in albeit fortunate circumstances, as the defender got on the scoresheet for the first time since joining the club last summer.
Mario Balotelli was able to add a fifth in the closing stages despite enduring a difficult night’s work, but it mattered little as Milan will now await the winner of Juventus and Inter in the second semi-final.
The Bianconeri hold a commanding three-goal lead against their bitter rivals after dominating the first leg, and so it remains to be seen whether or not they can avoid any drama and set up what would be a mouth-watering clash against Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side in the finale.
