Big scorer Del Piero sinks AC Milan on home turf

Juventus upset AC Milan 2-1 on their home turf Saturday through goals from Fabio Quagliarella and captain Alessandro Del Piero, dpa reported.

The captain's goal allowed Juve to secure a win that pushed his side onto 15 points from nine games while becoming the club's all- time top scorer with 179 goals in the Serie A.

Milan remain two points above Juve but lag four behind 19-point leaders Lazio, who on Sunday visit Palermo ahead of next weekend's city derby with Roma.

Champions Inter Milan edged Genoa 1-0 on Friday to move within one point of Lazio.

Juve missed the suspended key midfielder Milos Krasic, strikers Amauri and Vincenzo Iaquinta plus international defender Giorgio Chiellini and seemed to be in trouble early in the game.

Things got dicey for Marco Storari already on seven minutes as Zlatan Ibrahimovic hit the bar-post junction to the left of Juve's goalkeeper and on nine saw his low drive saved.

Felipe Melo and captain Alessandro Del Piero replied for Juve with low drives saved before Fabio Quagliarella soared above Luca Antonini on 24 minutes to nod home a left-flank cross from Paolo De Ceglie.

Two chances went begging for Ibra before the break, when Storari blocked his feeble header and saw the Swede fire high from inside the area.

There was no telling reactions from the Devils, who lacked grit in midfield and precision when they came close to the opponents' area.

Their equalizing efforts were thwarted on 65 minutes by a winning shot from Del Piero, who finished off a counterattack.

Antonini dithered on a possible clearance and favoured a break from substitute Mohamed Sissoko, who also botched his shot but managed a backward assist for his captain.

Milan's efforts were rewarded by Ibra's winning header with nine minutes left, which triggered an intense offensive phase controlled with some difficulty by Juve's defence.

Earlier Saturday, Nicolas Burdisso and Mirko Vucinic scored second-half goals to secure Roma's 2-0 win over guests Lecce as both teams ended the game down to 10 men.

As Vucinic secured Roma's win, Francesco Totti and Lecce's Uruguayan Ruben Olivera clashed off the ball, and were both dismissed.

Totti made things worse when he tried to assault Olivera on the way to the changing rooms, but he was blocked by Roma staffers.
