Atalanta embarrassed Milan with a comprehensive 5-0 victory on Sunday to move up to fifth in the Serie A, with Ilicic lighting up the game with a quite superb performance, scoring two and assisting another.

He was involved in the opening goal as he sent a pass down the left channel for Alejandro Gomez to slam a strike into the top right corner.

The second half, however, was all about him.

To score his first goal of the game, he turned Davide Calabria inside out a yard inside the penalty area before flashing a strike past the goalkeeper, who didn't have enough time to react.

His second was even better, as he received a quick free-kick to feet which allowed him to whip a stunning left-footed strike high into the top left corner.
