Diego Costa struck the winner in the first leg and it took the Brazilian-born Spain international just three minutes to double Atletico’s advantage as he acrobatically turned home Koke’s cross:

Milan were given hope when Kaka headed home Andrea Poli’s cross on 27 minutes, but Arda Turan restored Atletico’s lead on the night before half-time when his volley from the edge of the box deflected past Christian Abbiati.

Raul Garcia’s header made it 3-1 before Costa rounded off a fine individual display with his seventh Champions League goal of the campaign six minutes from time.
