AC Milan off to winning start in Serie A

 \\\\\ ITALY

Filippo Inzaghi got off to a winning start as AC Milan’s coach, his team easing to a 3-1 victory over Lazio in its Serie A opener, yesterday. Goals from Keisuke Honda and Sulley Muntari and a penalty from Jeremy Menez gave Milan a comfortable lead before Lazio pulled one back with an own goal from new Rossoneri signing Alex.

New Milan goalkeeper Diego Lopez saved Antonio Candreva’s penalty kick in stoppage time. It was a convincing performance by Milan, which showed how little it missed Balotelli after his move to Liverpool last week. Balotelli’s replacement, Fernando Torres, was watching in the stands at San Siro after completing his two-year loan move from Chelsea. Also, Atalanta drew 0-0 at home to Hellas Verona.
