A penalty by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a late strike by Kevin Prince Boateng gave AC Milan a 2-0 win over Atlanta to keep them joint top of Serie A with Juventus.
Ibrahimovic converted a 22nd minute penalty after Alexandre Pato had been felled in the area, and then turned provider for Kevin-Prince Boateng, who side-footed the second eight minutes from time.
Elsewhere, at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in Lecce, Juventus put in a solid defensive display to earn a 1-0 win with Alessandro Matri’s 27th minute strike proving decisive.
A win for both sides keeps them joint-top of Serie A on 37 points after 17 matches with third place Udinese a further two points behind.
Next week AC Milan take on city rivals Inter Milan in the season’s first Milan derby.
