The Brazil international marked his 300th appearance for the Rossoneri with a brace after Mario Balotelli's early opener.

Consequently, the Italian giants register successive wins for only the third time this season following last week's 2-0 victory away to Fiorentina.

Balotelli, who scored against the Viola last time out, needed just four minutes to open the scoring tonight by converting an Adil Rami cross.

A mistake from Urby Emanuelson presented the visitors with the chance to equalise, but Simone Bentivoglio fired straight at goalkeeper Christian Abbiati.

Kaka doubled Milan's advantage later in the half, latching onto Keisuke Honda's over-the-top ball to fire past Michael Agazzi.

The former Real Madrid ace added a third nine minutes into the second half by curling beyond the Italian from the edge of the box.

Chievo's misery was compounded in the closing stages when Cyril Thereau missed a penalty to reduce the arrears.
