The Rossoneri, despite their injury crisis, took home a comfortable three points away to the Tuscan side, with Franck Kessie netting the opening goal after only 12 minutes. Nedim Bajrami tied things up six minutes later, but the Ivorian midfielder put the Milanese club back ahead just before half time.
Milan enter the Christmas break sitting second in the Serie A table, four points behind local rivals and league leaders Inter. The two teams will meet soon after the break on February 6, a derby that could prove decisive in the title race this season.
