    ANDRE Silva scored in each half to help AC Milan beat Austria Vienna, 5-1, on Thursday (Friday, Manila time) and book a spot in the knockout stage of the Europa League.

    Coming off two goalless draws in Europe's second tier competition, and a Serie A loss to Napoli on Saturday, Milan's start to the game against Austria Vienna looked like another dismal night for Italy's biggest spender in the offseason.

    Vienna forward Christoph Monschein beat the offside trap in the 21st minute to shock the hosts with the opening goal of the game at San Siro.

    But Milan proved its class time this time, and was quick to turn things around.

    Ricardo Rodriguez equalized with a low shot just six minutes later, Silva got his first nine minutes after that and Patrick Cutrone completed Milan's rally three minutes before the break.
