AC Milan was held at home to a 1-1 draw with Lazio, after Brazilian playmaker Kaka had given the hosts the lead early in the second-half.
Mario Balotelli had Milan’s first chance of the game with just two minutes played, the Italian international combined well with Ignazio Abate and forced a good save out of Lazio goalkeeper Frederico Marchetti.
Five minutes later and Kaka this time tested Marchetti after the Brazilian had linked up well with Balotelli.
The hosts started to find their rhythm as the first-half went on and in the 10th minute forward Valter Birsa came close, but his shot was well blocked by the Lazio defence.
The home-side started to dominate as the half wore on, Kaka having two shots at goal on the 15th and 20th minute but neither tested Marchetti in the visitor’s goal.
Milan continued to dictate play and looked the more likely team to open the scoring, with just under 25 minutes played midfielder Riccardo Montolivo had his shot which seemed destined to land up in the top corner, well saved by Marchetti once more.
Kaka then had a shot flash just wide of the left-hand post just before the half-time break to keep things all score going into the second-half.
The hosts did open the scoring 10 minutes into the second-half, Kaka linked up well with former Manchester City striker Balotelli, and the Brazilian let fly from outside the box, curling a magnificent shot into Marchetti’s top corner leaving the Lazio shot-stopper helpless.
The Brazilians moment of quality seemed to be enough to secure all three points for Massimiliano Allegri’s men but their opponents from the Capital had other ideas.
Lazio’s French defender Mickael Caini then grabbed the equaliser in the 72nd minute, rising unchallenged to glance home Candreva's corner-kick from the right from close range.
Miroslav Klose, who had earlier in the half wasted the away side’s best chance of the game but his touch was too heavy, then had a chance to secure Lazio's first away league win against Milan since August 1989 with eight minutes to go, but the veteran German strikers tame shot was comfortable for Milan keeper Gabriel, and both sides were forced to share the spoils.
