It was only the fourth time Milan have lost a Serie A game by a five-goal margin, with the last time coming in May 1998 against Roma.

Atalanta moved into fifth place, four points behind Roma and the final Champions League berth. Milan is 10 points further back and down in 11th position.

Atalanta broke the deadlock in the 10th minute through Alejandro “Papu” Gomez but it wasn’t until after the hour that the floodgates opened.

Mario Pasalic scored against his former team in the 61st and Josip Ilicic made it 3-0 two minutes later.

Ilicic doubled his tally as Milan fell apart and substitute Luis Muriel sealed the humiliation five minutes after coming off the bench.
