Ivan Schranz’s powerful strike in the 65th minute gave Slavia a chance to respond, but Christian Pulisic’s solo run five minutes from the end gave Milan the victory.

The visitors had looked strong early in the match, but El Hadji Malick Diouf’s red card for a forceful foul on Pulisic in the 26th minute ended their dreams of winning a championship in Italy.

The hosts took the lead through a goal from Jordan Veretout in the 23rd minute, and five minutes later, Yerson Mosquera of Villarreal scored an own goal.

With goals from Connor Goldson’s own goal and a penalty from Angel Di Maria, Portuguese champions Benfica twice rallied to salvage a 2-2 draw against Rangers, opening the door for the second leg in Glasgow.
