Di Gennaro: Stunned Milan

AC Milan's Serie A title hopes suffered a blow after rock-bottom Reggina held them to a 1-1 draw at San Siro.

Milan, with David Beckham in the starting XI once more, enjoyed excellent early possession and pressure, but they fell behind on 33 minutes.

Reggina burst away on the counter-attack and Bernardo Corradi set up Carlos Carmona, whose fierce drive was parried by Christian Abbiati in the Milan goal.

Italian giants Milan failed to clear their lines, though, and a Corradi flick set up the late arriving Davide Di Gennaro to lash home left-footed.

Milan were given a lifeline on 67 minutes as Matej Krajcik brought down a marauding Pato in the box and Kaka smashed home the penalty.

Ronaldinho made way for Filippo Inzaghi and he almost converted a sumptuous cross from Beckham, heading just over the bar 17 minutes from time.

Five minutes from the end Inzaghi was inches away from converting another devilish cross from the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder.

Milan now trail leaders Inter Milan, who were victorious on Saturday night, by eight points.
