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
