AC Milan started their life after Massimiliano Allegri in a positive way as they grabbed a pretty convincing 3-1 victory over Serie B side Spezia in the Coppa Italia fixture this midweek. Eager to quickly redeeming themselves from disappointing weekend defeat against Sassuolo, Rossoneri put on an attacking shape since the early minutes and created several dangerous chances, before eventually getting themselves in front through Robinho's header on 28 minutes.
Milan kept on pushing forward and soon afterwards, they double their lead with a lovely finish from Giampaolo Pazzini, finishing off Andrea Poli's assist on 31 minutes. Learning a lesson from their previous game, the Red and Black squad didn't stop their attacking play in the second half as they kept on pushing forward and eventually sealing that match with a third goal, that was netted by their new signing, Keisuke Honda. Spezia had a bit of spark in the last few minutes as Rossoneri looked to tired of as they pulled one goal back through Nicola Ferrari in stoppage time.
