The Rossoneri needed just four minutes to edge ahead in the contest after Mario Balotelli converted a teasing cross by Adil Rami.

A mistake from Urby Emanuelson presented the visitors with the opportunity to equalise, as Simone Bentivoglio capitalised on a miskicked clearance from the Dutchman before firing straight at Christian Abbiati.

However, Clarence Seedorf's troops doubled their advantage shortly before the half-hour mark. Kaka marked his 300th Milan appearance in style, collecting an over-the-top ball from Keisuke Honda before firing beyond Michael Agazzi.

Having orchestrated the second, Honda should have turned goalscorer and added a third before the break, but the Japan international managed to blaze over the bar with the goal at his mercy.
