Despite the dismissal of Sandro Tonali after 33 minutes, AC Milan saw off Benevento on Sunday to return to the top of Serie A.

Franck Kessie put the visitors in front from the spot before Roberto Insigne went within a whisker of drawing the hosts level.

After his studs grazed Artur Ionita’s right knee, Tonali was then sent for an early bath, and after a VAR examination, the penalty was changed from a yellow card to a red one.

Rafael Leao then rounded off the scoring four minutes after the break, gathering the pass of Ante Rebic on the edge of the box before exploiting the reckless decision of Benevento goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipo to abandon his six-yard box as the Portuguese forward-curved the ball beautifully over the head of the international Italian youth while off balance.

The outcome saw Stefano Pioli’s men regain their one-point lead at the summit following the 6-2 thrashing of Crotone by Inter Milan.
