Del Piero: Italian legend
Alessandro Del Piero became Juventus' all-time record goalscorer in Serie A as he helped his club to a 2-1 victory over AC Milan at the San Siro.
The Italian legend scored Juve's second in the 65th minute to add to Fabio Quagliarella's opener and register his 179th top-flight goal.
Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic set up an exciting finish with an 82nd minute goal against one of his former clubs, but it did not prevent Juve moving into the top four of Serie A.
Home side Milan started the game at a furious pace, however, Italy striker Quagliarella silenced much of the crowd with a perfect header after 24 minutes.
Del Piero then struck with what was by his high stands a relatively scrappy goal, following in after Mohamed Sissoko had produced a comical air-shot when one-on-one with Christian Abbiati.
The goal allowed the 35-year-old to overtake 1950s great Giampiero Boniperti in Juve's record goalscorers.
Ibrahimovic headed in to cut the arrears with his first goal against one of his former Italian sides, but Juve clung on to move two points behind third-placed Milan.
