International

Juve Sink Milan

Juventus responded from the worst possible start to beat AC Milan 3-2 at the Juventus Stadium on Sunday night.

The clash of the two Italian giants started with a bang as just 20 seconds in Robinho laid the ball off to Antonio Nocerino and his shot fell for Sulley Muntari who side-footed home.

Fabio Quagliarella wasted a glorious chance to equalise in the eighth minute when he ballooned a shot over in a one-on-one situation while Kwado Asamoah sent a fierce strike straight at Christian Abbiati.

The pressure from Juve paid off in the 15th minute when Andrea Pirlo lifted his free-kick over the wall and watched it sail into the corner.

Giorgi Chiellini was unable to turn home a free-kick from Pirlo in the 17th minute while Christian Zapata drew a smart save from Gianluigi Buffon at the other end.

Robinho could have put Milan ahead once again after the break when he was played in smartly by Alessandro Matri but the Brazilian was denied by the goalkeeper.

Asamoah fired a shot just over on the hour mark before Paul Pogba rifled an attempt straight at the goalkeeper.

Juve's second arrived moments later though as Sebastian Giovinco slid a finish home seconds after coming onto the pitch from the bench.

Milan defender Philippe Mexes would then be sent off with 15 minutes to go after hurling abuse at the referee after initially being booked for a foul.

The resulting free-kick provided Juve's third with Pirlo's effort smacking against the crossbar before a sliding Chiellini tucked away the rebound.

Muntari set up a tense finish with a thumping shot from distance after a mistake from Pogba but the Old Lady hung on to secure the spoils.
