Pato broke the deadlock just 18 minutes into the game as he volleyed home Ibrahimovic's cross, while Abbiati was also kept busy by Constant seeing his two shots excellently saved by the goalkeeper.
The double arrived moments later for Pato who sent the rossoneri into the break with a 2-1 lead. corner and sent it into the back of his own net. It nearly became 2-2 as After the half Chievo found themselves crawling back as Ibrahimovic got a touch to Bogliacino's Gelson Fernandes sent the ball just millimetres wide of the goal.
But Milan were once again to have the last say as Ibrahimovic once again provided the perfect pass to send Robinho dribbling past the goalkeeper and slotting the ball into the back of the net. It is the Brazilian's first goal since his arrival to the Via Turati outfit and he and the team celebrated in fine style.
The confidence is now up for the big game on Tuesday evening and the players will be looking to once again outdo the Galactico's.
