At San Siro, Andrea Pirlo's side ran out 3-1 winners away from home, closing the gap to seven points to the Rossoneri at the top of the table.
The match winner proved to be Federico Chiesa (8.5), who scored two goals of great quality coming in from the right wing to help seal the victory. His first was particularly memorable thanks to a delightful flicked assist from Paulo Dybala, with Chiesa's finish being coolly sent into the left corner.
On the opposite wing in FootballCritic's Team of the Week is Sassuolo's Jeremie Boga (8.1), who opened the scoring in the 2-1 win against Genoa.
In attack is Borja Mayoral (8.4), who helped himself to two goals as Roma defeated Crotone 3-1 away from home, with Junior Messias (8.0) also featuring after his performance in the same game, albeit on the losing side.
Manuel Locatelli (8.2) was superb for Sassuolo, as he recorded one assist as well as completing an impressive 75/80 attempted passes, making 10 ball recoveries too.
Joining him in the middle of midfield is Marten de Roon (8.4). The former Middlesbrough midfielder was in excellent form for Atalanta, completing 70/76 passes and winning 100% of his attempted tackles (3/3), while he also won the majority of his duels.
It was a comfortable 3-0 win for Atalanta on Wednesday, with Robin Gosens (8.2) getting on the scoresheet as well as ensuring his side kept a clean sheet, which also sees Jose Luis Palomino (7.9) earn his place in the Team of the Week.
Napoli's Giovanni Di Lorenzo (7.7) is in at right-back.
The 3-1 scoreline between Milan and Juventus suggests the Bianconeri had things mostly go their way on Wednesday night, but Wojciech Szczesny (8.4) had to be called upon numerous times to deny Stefano Pioli's side as he made no less than eight saves.
