AC Milan beat Juventus 3-1 to end the Turin club's nine-match winning streak and move within two points of the Serie A leader. Juventus has 27 points from 10 games, second-place Milan has 25. First-half goals from Clarence Seedorf, Kaka and Andrea Pirlo saw Milan win its eighth straight game yesterday after a shaky start of one draw and one loss. Juve, which had previously only allowed two goals, was troubled by the movement of strikers Andrea Gilardino and Filippo Inzaghi and the pressing by Milan midfielders at the sold-out San Siro stadium here. Gilardino, Italy's most expensive transfer in the summer from Parma, passed to Seedorf for the opening goal in the 14th minute. The Dutch midfielder's shot was slightly deflected by Juventus defender Lilian Thuram and flew past goalkeeper Antonio Chimenti. "My goal was the turning point of the match," Seedorf said. "We took advantage of our scoring opportunities and proved we are as strong as the best team." Brazil star Kaka made it 2-0 in the 26th with a volley from 10 metres, while Pirlo netted the third in the 45th with a long-distance free kick. David Trezeguet scored a goal - his sixth for the season - for Juventus in the 75th on a pass by midfielder Patrick Vieira. (AP)
