Two goals by Kevin-Prince Boateng and one by Mario Balotelli ensured AC Milan overcame PSV Eindhoven to reach the UEFA Champions League group stage for the 11th time in the last 12 seasons with a 4-1 aggregate win in the play-offs.
PSV had their fair share of opportunities at San Siro but Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati made a series of good saves before and after Boateng's opener until Balotelli scored a second for the Rossoneri early in the second half. Any hopes of a comeback vanished for Phillip Cocu's young side when Boateng added another 13 minutes from time following a nice team move.
