Kaka & Balo Star In Milan Win

Milan claimed their second successive Serie A victory with a comprehensive 3-0 win over relegation contenders Chievo at the San Siro Stadium on Saturday evening. 

Mario Balotelli opened the scoring for the home side, before Ricky Kaka hit two impressive goals to wrap up a crucial victory. 

The fixture marked Ricky Kaka’s 300th appearance in the Rossoneri jersey and Mario Balotelli stroked it with an immediate goal. It was a great effort by SuperMario, who volleyed from close range on an Adil Rami cross.

It was a much more aggressive side from previous matches and the hosts then saw Adel Taarabt’s snapshot sting Michael Agazzi's gloves at the near post.

Simone Bentivoglio then tested Christian Abbiati just seconds after Urby Emanuelson awfully scuffed a clearance that risked an own goal. 

But the Rossoneri’s lead was doubled when Kaka was left totally unmarked inside the box. Keisuke Honda looped the ball towards the Brazilian, who then chested it down before slotting it over the line. 

It should have been 3-0 later one but Honda shockingly ballooned his strike over from seven yards out, before Sulley Muntari had to be replaced before the interval due to injury. 

Kaka got his second goal after the restart with a beautiful goal to mark a special occasion, curling in an effort from the edge of the box into the top right corner. 

Chievo nearly pulled back a goal when Victor Obinna dummied a ball from a corner kick on the goal-line. It hit the upright of Abbiati’s goal but saw a defender sweep it away at the last moment. 

The Flying Donkey’s were handed their sixth penalty of the season inside stoppage time, but the scoreline remained the same as Cyril Thereau knocked it onto the woodwork to keep Milan’s cleansheet in tact.

Other result: Bologna-Atalanta (0-2)

Atalanta set a new club record with their sixth consecutive Serie A victory, claiming a 2-0 win over Bologna. 

Atalanta took the lead when Giuseppe De Luca robbed Diego Perez in midfield. The Nerazzurro burst forward and placed his shot into the far bottom corner from just inside the box to mark his second goal in as many games. 

The scoreline was doubled and the victory sealed four minutes later with a screamer from Marcelo Estigarribia. The former Juventus player unleashed a snapshot from outside the area to fly past Gianluca Curci and into the top corner.
