Had no chance to keep out an impeccable Balotelli penalty, but was badly wrong-footed for the second goal and could have done better.
Suffered throughout against the explosive skills of Niang on the ball. A clumsy challenge on Balotelli conceded the free kick that led to the second.
Never looked up to the challenge of keeping Milan's attacking stars at bay and suffered throughout on the flank.
Guilty of a poor tackle on Nocerino which gave little option other than a penalty. Struggled to contain Milan as they broke forward.
Responsibility for the third goal lies squarely on the centre-back's shoulders, an awful slip that allowed Robinho to lay on for Flamini.
Outfought by the likes of Flamini and Muntari, could not match their work-rate or strength and was a passenger in the middle.
Passed fluidly and accurately, but to often played horizontal. Could not provide the penetration Pescara required going forward.
Made life even harder for the Delfini with some shocking passing going forward, meaning Milan were allowed to control the tempo.
Out of all the Delfini looked the man most likely to get his team on the board, but poor finishing let him down on more than one occasion.
Another major culprit in the home team's speculative approach, too often misplaced the ball and it was reflected in an impotent attack.
F. Di Francesco
Kept extremely quiet from start to finish, got forward a handful of times but with little success.
A virtual spectator throughout, was never really tested and watched his team pick up the easiest of triumphs.
The presence of Niang out on the right meant the full-back played a little more conservatively than usual, but did not put a foot out of place.
Always a dependable presence for Milan in the middle of defence, had little to do but kept the backline organised.
The veteran Colombian enjoyed what must be one of the easiest matches of his lengthy career. Rarely tested.
A useful linkman between attack and midfield, passing well and getting forward. Won the penalty for the opener with a decent surge into the box.
A steady first-half, but came alive after the break with an excellent goal and an assist before he was withdrawn with the game already won.
Was always busy in the middle, harrying and pressing well to keep his side on top. An excellent finish on the volley for Milan's second.
Coasted through the game on the left of an attacking Milan side, working well with Robinho while refusing to over-commit himself going forward.
Squandered an early chance, but made almost instant amends with a well-taken penalty. His talent and work rate caused problems throughout, and he deserved his second.
One of the most dangerous men throughout in red and black, always threatened with the ball at feet and gave Pescara an uncomfortable evening.
Enjoyed his partnership with the more physical, imposing Balotelli, taking advantage of the spaces created. An intelligent free kick set up the second.
