Revitalised Milan topple leaders Juventus

AC Milan made a good week even better by edging Serie A leaders Juventus 1-0, which allowed ACF Fiorentina to move within four points of the top with a 2-2 draw at Torino FC.

AC Milan ended a fine week on a high by edging Serie A pacesetters Juventus 1-0, which allowed ACF Fiorentina to move within four points of the summit with a 2-2 draw at Torino FC.

Having qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, Milan recorded their first Serie A triumph in three outings thanks to Robinho's 31st-minute penalty. The Brazilian forward made the difference from the spot after his own cross was adjudged to have been handled by Mauricio Isla in the area, and his side held the visitors at bay after the break to climb up to eighth in the standings.

Fiorentina were unable to make the most of that result as their five-game winning streak was brought to an end earlier in the day. Former Viola player Alessio Cerci put Torino ahead when he drove Danilo D'Ambrosio's cross into the roof of the net, and although Gonzalo Rodríguez levelled from the spot with 74 minutes gone, Fiorentina still needed Mounir El Hamdaoui's late equaliser to salvage a draw after Valter Birsa then put Torino back in front.

AS Roma moved up to fifth courtesy of Mattia Destro's close-range finish five minutes into their game at Pescara Calcio, with the 1-0 defeat sending the hosts to the foot of the table in place of Genoa CFC. Now 16th, the Rossoblu ended a six-game losing streak via a 1-0 win at Atalanta BC thanks to Andrea Bertolacci's first-half effort

UC Sampdoria had lost seven in a row before last week's triumph against Genoa, and they got a second victory in succession by prevailing 1-0 against Bologna FC, who had Archimede Morleo sent off just five minutes in. Lastly, AC Chievo Verona and AC Siena drew 0-0.
