AC Milan extends lead at top to 6 points

4692315441_16fc48af4dAC Milan beat Bologna 3-0 on Sunday to extend their lead at the top of Serie A to 6 points. Kevin-Prince Boateng got Milan off the mark early on before Robinho quickly made it 2-0 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic enjoyed a well-deserved goal of his own after another excellent performance.

Lazio could have reduced the gap back to three points but were unable to emerge from Turin with the points. Giorgio Chiellini gave Juve a second-minute lead, which Mauro Zarate cancelled out 12 minutes later.

But, just when it looked as though Lazio would be returning to Rome with a share of the spoils, Milos Krasic’s 90th-minute cross-shot was palmed into his own net by Lazio keeper Fernando Muslera.

Juan scored the only goal as Roma returned to winning ways with a 1-0 success over struggling Bari. The goal came on the half-hour mark and was the difference between the two sides at the Stadio Olimpico.

Ten minutes earlier, Roma captain Francesco Totti saw his penalty saved by goalkeeper Jean Francois Gillet after Michele Rinaldi had brought down Marco Borriello inside the area.
