Player ratings as Rossoneri keep Champions League dream alive

    Milan are alive and kicking in the Champions League this season after a late goal from Junior Messias gave them a vital 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

    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.

    The first half was a niggly affair with clear-cut chances at a premium. There were just six attempts at goal in total, which accumulated a combined xG value of only 0.27.

    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.

    Immediately after the break Thomas Lemar finally found a gap in midfield and he surged through before firing a tame effort at the goalkeeper.
