THE BIGGER PICTURE: Before Milan could even dust themselves down and properly go in search of an equaliser, they found themselves 2-0 down when Henrikh Mkhitaryan slalomed through their defence and doubled Inter's lead with ease. To add insult to injury, they were then forced into an early change as Ismael Bennacer limped off injured.
WHAT NEXT? Finding themselves two goals down 11 minutes into the first leg, Milan were given a lifeline when a penalty against Simon Kjaer was overturned. They must now focus on damage limitation and ensuring they do not let the tie get away from them.
