Italy round-up: Chievo burst Milan bubble

AC Milan's unbeaten run came to an end with a 3-2 defeat at AC Chievo Verona on Saturday while Juventus FC won 1-0 at home.

AC Milan's unbeaten run came to an end with a 3-2 defeat at AC Chievo Verona on Saturday.

Unbeaten run
Milan, league leaders and unbeaten in their opening five games and with a 100 per cent record in the UEFA Champions League, fell behind to a Massimo Marazzina header in the 22nd minute.

Bierhoff strike
Former Milan striker Oliver Bierhoff made it 2-0 four minutes into the second half before Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko, making his first appearance of the season, pulled one back for Milan in the 59th minute.

Two-goal advantage
After surviving some intense pressure from Milan, Chievo restored their two-goal advantage when Federico Cossato headed in an Ivano Della Morte cross in the 83rd minute.

Pirlo dismissed
Danish international striker Jon Dahl Tomasson gave Milan some late hope with a goal in added time but a bad day for Carlo Ancelotti's side was completed when midfielder Andrea Pirlo was sent off for a second yellow card.

Juve back on track
After three draws and a defeat in their last four games, Juventus FC finally got back to winning ways in tonight’s late game with a 1-0 win against Udinese Calcio despite the absence of injured strikers Alessandro Del Piero and David Trezeguet.

Salas seals it
Juve went ahead four minutes after the break when Cristian Zenoni raced on to a long ball from Alessio Tacchinardi and picked out Marcelo Salas with a low cross which the Chilean comfortably converted for his first league goal in over a year.
