The victory means there is a three-way, matchday six playoff between the Rossoneri, Atletico and FC Porto in Group B to determine who will join runaway leaders Liverpool in the last 16.

Rodrigo De Paul fired off a long-range strike that never looked like troubling Ciprian Tatarusanu, while Pierre Kulu saw a shot from inside the box saved by Jan Oblak.
