Milan hit the front after Siena scalp

AC Milan are a point clear of Juventus and Udinese Calcio respectively at the top of Serie A after a 2-0 win against AC Siena, while there was a goal-filled ending to ACF Fiorentina-Atalanta BC.

Antonio Nocerino and Zlatan Ibrahimović were on target as AC Milan went top of Serie A by beating AC Siena 2-0 at San Siro.

Nocerino drove the Rossoneri in front with a low shot through a crowded penalty area nine minutes into the second half. Ibrahimović (63) confirmed victory with a powerfully-struck penalty, awarded after goalkeeper Željko Brkić clipped Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Massimiliano Allegri's men are a point clear of Juventus and Udinese Calcio, who play Novara Calcio and S.S. Lazio respectively on Sunday. AC Chievo Verona, meanwhile, recorded their first win in four top-flight games, defeating Cagliari Calcio 2-0 thanks to goals from Cyril Théréau and Gennaro Sardo.

There was an eventful ending to the day's other game, a 2-2 draw between ACF Fiorentina and Atalanta BC. Having equalised in the 81st minute, the visitors then took a 2-1 lead courtesy of Germán Denis's league-leading 11th goal of the campaign, only for Stevan Jovetić (88) to earn the Viola point.
