AC Milan restored their three-point Serie A lead with an impressive 3-0 win against struggling Brescia Calcio but AS Roma lost ground as they were pegged back for a 2-2 draw at AC Chievo Verona.
S.S. Lazio had joined the Rossoneri on 30 points last night with a 3-1 win against FC Internazionale Milano. However, Milan wasted little time pulling away tonight, scoring their three goals within 30 minutes. Kevin-Prince Boateng turned in a Zlatan Ibrahimović cross on four minutes and the Sweden forward made it three on the half-hour just after Robinho had pounced on a defensive slip to double the lead.
Roma looked set to take third place when two first-half Fábio Simplício goals put them 2-0 up against Chievo, the first an opportunist effort and the second, on 44 minutes, following Marco Cassetti's cross. However, Chievo pulled one back just after the hour, Davide Moscardelli's long-range effort catching out Júlio Sérgio. Substitute Pablo Granoche levelled with seven minutes left, just before visiting captain Daniele De Rossi was sent off for a foul on Moscardelli.
Six more fixtures, including Juventus's trip to Calcio Catania, are on Sunday and SSC Napoli welcome fellow high-fliers US Città di Palermo on Monday.
