Milan’s first-ever win at the Allianz Stadium against Juventus could have been the decisive one for both sides’ hopes to qualify for the Champions League.

The Rossoneri sealed a 3-0 win in Turin on Sunday and have joined Atalanta in second place with 72 points.

On the other hand, Juventus sit fifth, one point behind fourth-placed Napoli.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the worst player on the pitch last night, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport that rated the Portuguese 4/10.

The paper pointed out Ronaldo had scored decisive goals despite disappointing performances in the previous games, but this time around, he was unable to produce anything and ‘didn’t act like a leader’ against the Rossoneri.

Weston McKennie was also among the most disappointing Juventus players and was rated 4.5 by the pink paper that wrote the American midfielder 'looked confused, to say the least.'

On the other hand, Milan played one of the best games of their campaign and Brahim Diaz, who broke the deadlock just before the half-time whistle, ‘may have put in the best performance in a Rossoneri shirt,’ wrote La Gazzetta.

Italian papers also praised Simon Kjaer. La Gazzetta dello Sport rated the Danish defender 7.5:  ‘Juventus never created trouble, and he also deserves credit for that.'
