AC Milan had Riccardo Montolivo to thank for the only goal in this Serie A match against Chievo Verona.
Chievo Verona lost at home by a single goal to an AC Milan side hopeful of reaching the UEFA Champions League next season.
The Flying Donkeys meanwhile are almost certainly safe from relegation and have almost no chance of reaching Europe, so they are only playing for position.
The only goal of the game came when Riccardo Montolivo pounced on a rebound from a Mario Balotelli free kick.
The Rossoneri had twice as many shots as Chievo throughout the contest, and what could have been a tense last few minutes was made rather easier for the visitors when Dario Dainelli was shown a second yellow card with fifteen minutes remaining.
With the extra man advantage, Milan were able to hold out until the final whistle.
