Milan were given hope when Kaka headed home Andrea Poli's cross on 27 minutes, but Arda Turan restored Atletico's lead on the night before halftime when his volley from the edge of the box deflected past Christian Abbiati.Milan boss Clarence Seedorf had insisted pre-match that the tie was still open despite losing the first leg at home, but it looked as if the Italian's hopes had been killed off within minutes as Gabi robbed the ball on the right, fed Koke and his cross was hooked home on the volley by Costa for his 28th goal of the season.Atletico had another great chance to put the tie to bed within three minutes of the restart of the second-half as a rapid counterattack from a Milan corner saw Costa tee up Gabi and his fierce strike came back off the outside of the post.
