AC Milan 2-1 Siena

AC Milan moved top of Serie A on Wednesday night after goals from Brazilian playmaker Kaká and Danish striker Jon Dahl Tomasson gave them a 2-1 home win against AC Siena. Carlo Ancelotti's side now lead the table with 45 points while AS Roma are two points behind and Juventus FC third on 40 points.

Kaká, who scored twice in Sunday's 5-0 crushing of Ancona Calcio, claimed his seventh league goal of the season with the opener after 38 minutes. Collecting a pass from Andriy Shevchenko, he skipped past Stefano Argilli before wrongfooting Siena goalkeeper Generoso Rossi with his shot.

Siena missed the opportunity of an instant reply a minute later when Fernando had his penalty saved by Dida, after Milan's Paolo Maldini had brought down Tore André Flo. Instead Milan doubled their advantage nine minutes after the break when Rossi failed to hold on to a long-range effort from Cristian Brocchi and Tomasson pounced to slot home the loose ball. After Shevchenko had struck a post, Flo gave Siena a glimmer of hope in the 87th minute with a left-foot strike after a deflected shot from Roberto D'Aversa fell to him at the back post. The defeat leaves Siena tenth in the table.

MILAN: Dida; Cafu, Costacurta (Laursen, 46'), Maldini, Pancaro; Brocchi, Redondo, Seedorf (Gattuso, 77'); Kakà; Tomasson, Shevchenko (Serginho, 90').

SIENA: Rossi; Cufré, Argilli, Mignani, Guigou; Taddei (Junior, 69'), Vergassola, D'Aversa, Menegazzo (Ventola, 60'), Lazetic (Chiesa, 57'); Flo.

GOALS: 1-0 Kaká, 38'; 2-0 Tomasson, 54'; 2-1 Flo, 87'.
