AC Milan put six past Shkendija in Europa League

AC Milan celebrate their victory over Shkendija
AC Milan will travel to Macedonia for the second leg next Thursday

AC Milan thrashed Macedonia's Shkendija to take a huge step towards reaching the Europa League group stage.

The Italian side led 3-0 at the break - with summer signing Andre Silva scoring his first two goals for the club since joining from Porto in July.

Fabio Borini - on loan from Sunderland - also scored his first goal for Milan.

Luca Antonelli and Riccardo Montolivo also struck for the Rossoneri, who are back in European competition for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

It was Milan's second biggest win at home in European competition, after their 8-0 victory over Union Luxembourg in 1962-63.

Their 3-0 lead at the break was also the first time they led by that margin at half-time in a European competition since the 2005 Champions League final, which they went on to lose on penalties to Liverpool.
