Juventus were thumped at home by Milan on Sunday, as the balance of power in domestic football in Italy looks set to shift.

The Old Lay of Italian football are seeking a hat-trick of Serie A titles, but their hopes were effectively ended by a rampant Milan side in the evening fixture.

Ukrainian assassin Andrei Shevchenko set the ball rolling with the opener on 25 minutes, heading home from Clarence Seedorf's cross, but it was in the second half that Juve were clinically cut to shreds.

Dutch maestro Seedorf scored two long range efforts as Milan romped to victory.

The first took a deflection which left Gianluigi Buffon with no chance, while the second owed much to the determination and vision of Cafu who picked out Seedorf with a great ball following a fine run.

Ciro Ferrara volleyed home superbly on 81 to reduce the arrears, but it proved nothing more than a consolation.

Juve now sit nine points behind Milan in the race for the Scudetto.

Roma lost ground on Milan after being held by fourth bottom Reggina.  Stalwart defending by Reggina gave them a share of the points at Oreste Granillo.

Internazionale were also held to a goalless draw - with Chievo holding the Milan side at Giuseppe Meazza.

Game of the day came at Siena - where bottom side Ancona showed signs of life but were beaten 3-2.

Siena have surprised many this season, and took an early lead through veteran Enrico Chiesa only to be pegged back by Christian Bucchi's strike.

Simone Vergassola and Rodrigo Taddei looked to have ended Ancona's hopes, but a strike from Milan Rapaic gave the strugglers brief and ultimately fruitless hope.

Lazio were held to a 2-2 draw by Udinese, with the visitors levelling in the 90th minute through Vincenzo Iaquinta.

Roberto Muzzi and Simone Inzaghi had given Lazio a two-goal lead inside five minutes, but Lucas Castroman grabbed one back five minutes later.

A Roberto Baggio strike earned Brescia a 2-2 draw against Parma.

Benito Carbone had opened the scoring for Parma only for Luigi Di Biagio to level.

Marco Marcchioni re-established Parma's lead, but Baggio was on hand to score Brescia's second and earn a share of the points.

Perugia came from behind to draw 1-1 with Modena. Jose Ze Maria levelling from the penalty spot 15 minutes from time after Fabio Vignaroli had opened the scoring for the visitors on 18.
