AC Milan failed to qualify for Europe next season, but did end their final Italian Serie A battle on a high after grabbing all three points against Sassuolo.
Still slightly hoping to push for European spot, Milan immediately took control of that tie as they pushed forward vigorously and got themselves in front after just two minutes from Sulley Muntari's effort.
Things continue to look bright for Milan as they double their lead on 27 minutes with a goal from Nigel De Jong's deflected free kick, which lasted until half time break.
After the break, Sassuolo tried to get back into the match, but Milan remained dominant in that period until a controversial decision forced Philippe Mexes to see red.
Things got even not long after that when Paolo Cannavaro also earned a red card for his foul on Stephan El Shaarawy.
The game looked to be under Milan control again, before another bizzarre decision arrived from the referee, who gifted a harsh penalty for Sassuolo and sending off Mattia de Sciglio.
Simone Zaza took the penalty and converted perfectly on the 90th minute, but Milan deservedly earned their three points despite holding out the last few minutes with only 9 men.
