And three minutes later, Juve took the lead after Dybala backheeled perfectly into Chiesa's path, and player sidefooted past Dunnarumma and in at the far post to make it 1-0.
Barely four minutes before the interval, it was 1-1 courtesy a Davide Calabria strike.
Calhanoglu took out Rabiot in his own half to allow Milan to win the ball back, and they raced down the other end where Leao laid up Calabria, who sidefooted into the top corner from the edge of the area.
Both teams went into the break with the scoreline level, but Milan knew it would be a different ball game in the second half.
Upon restart, Juve took the lead yet again courtesy another Dybala assist, another Chiesa goal in the 61st minute.
The assist was a bit more prosaic this time, a heftily overhit 15-yard pass. Chiesa did well just to control it, but he then shifted it onto his left foot, away from Hernandez, and fired low with his left foot, inside the far post, from the edge of the area to make it 2-1.
The visitors put the game beyond Milan when McKennie tucked home from close range in the 76th minute to get his side's third goal.
It ended; AC Milan 1-3 Juventus.
