AC Milan beat Napoli 5-2 on Sunday to record their first league
win at the San Siro this term with Pato scoring on his debut and Ronaldo netting
twice to open his season's account.
Ronaldo, playing in only his second match this season after injury problems,
gave Milan a 15th-minute lead when his shot ballooned off Napoli keeper Gennaro
Iezzo and just crossed line before Andrea Cupi hooked clear.
Napoli equalised when Ezequiel Lavezzi's cross was toe-poked in by Roberto Sosa,
but Milan were soon back in front when Iezzo denied Brazilian teenager Pato
twice only for Clarence Seedorf to smash home.
Maurizio Domizzi pulled Napoli level from the penalty spot after 38 minutes of
an enthralling game, which Milan wrapped up in the second period through
Ronaldo's diving header, Kaka's crisp shot and Pato's cool finish. Napoli had
Walter Gargano sent off in stoppage time.
Earlier Inter Milan maintained their seven-point lead at the top of Serie A
after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's double helped the champions to a 3-2 win at Siena. AS
Roma moved back up to second with a 2-1 win at Atalanta. (Reporting by Mark
