Pato Hero , Save 3 points for Milan

Reggina came into this game with just one point to their name in Serie A and, after Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Roma, were second-from-bottom in the table. The Amaranti had a number of injuries to deal with as Francesco Cozza, Antonio Giosa, Emmanuel Cascione and Carlos Valdez were all unavailable. Nevio Orlandi employed a cautious 3-5-1-1 formation with Franco Brienza supporting lone frontman Bernardo Corradi.

Milan were looking to make it two wins on the bounce in the league after they had finally broken their duck on Sunday evening by thrashing Lazio 4-1. Alessandro Nesta, Andrea Pirlo. Philippe Senderos, Tabare Viudez and Pippo Inzaghi all sat out the game. Marco Borriello kept his place up-front alongside Alexandre Pato, supported by Kaka. Paolo Maldini and Massimo Ambrosini were both rested, while Mathieu Flamini returned.

First Half

Milan made a bright start, and Kaka had the first attempt of the game in the fifth minute as he cut in from the left, but dragged the ball wide from 25 yards.

Reggina responded with a Carlos Carmona effort, a daisycutter of a free kick from long distance which was smothered by Christian Abbiati.

The home side started to threaten more and more. A cross from the left into the area almost found Corradi's head, while on 17 minutes Brienza rattled in a shot from the edge of the area that finished only a yard wide of the post.

Milan were struggling to create anything, but on their first chance of the match on 23 minutes they took the lead. Clarence Seedorf whipped in a free kick from the right, and Borriello lost his man to bullet in a header past Andrea Campagnolo.

This boosted the Rossoneri's confidence, and on the half-hour mark they should have been two-up. Kaka burst past two men, allowing Borriello a clean run on goal, but he was denied by Campagnolo as he tried to round the goalkeeper.

Milan were now on top, but on 38 minutes they could have conceded an equaliser as Daniele Bonera defended a cross terribly, allowing Corradi a good chance at the back post, but Abbiati came to the rescue by closing down the veteran striker. Santos also fired well wide from long range.

Both sides then had two long range efforts in quick succession. First Seedorf tested Campagnolo, before Emil Hallfredsson tried his luck from 30 yards with a powerful left footed shot that Abbiati collected at the second attempt.

Second Half

Into the second half, and Reggina had the first attempt as Hallfredsson unleashed another pumping long range shot that finished well over.

Flamini, who had committed numerous fouls in the first half, and had already been booked, made another very late tackle on 55 minutes, and was extremely lucky to stay on the pitch.

Soon after Abbiati came to the rescue for Milan again with a fine fingertip save from Corradi's header, even if the ball may have been going wide.

Borriello was then forced off with injury and was replaced by Andriy Shevchenko, but just seconds after coming on Reggina equalised. A free kick from the right was headed down by Santos, and Corradi turned the ball in from close range.

Reggina now came forward looking for another goal, and on 66 minutes Costa cut in from the left and forced out a low save for Abbiati.

Milan were struggling to create anything. Shevchenko charged down a clearance and watched it go wide, while Pato went on a wonderful run but shot straight at Campagnolo from 20 yards.

However, on 73 minutes the Rossoneri did go back ahead. Kaka was the architecht with a run down the right, and cut-back for Pato, who finished clinically past Campagnolo into the bottom corner, although the 'keeper got a touch.

After scoring, Milan just looked to slow the tempo and play on the counter-attack. Zambrotta smashed a shot over, while down the other end Barreto fired a free kick into the wall.

There was a nervous moment for Milan in the 89th minute when Reggina substitute Fabio Ceravolo fired into the side-netting from a promising position.

Seedorf could have made it three in injury time, from Pato's pass, but with just Campagnolo to beat, he shot wide of the far post with the outside of his boot. It didn't matter as Milan held on to win, their second Serie A victory on the bounce.

Milan Menang, Barriello Cidera

Kemenangan 2-1 atas Reggina dibayar cukup mahal oleh Milan. Soalnya saat Derby della Madonnina dihelat, Rossoneri harus berlaga tanpa Marco Borriello.

Selain Alex Pato, Borriello menjadi salah satu pencetak gol Milan (25/9/2008) dinihari tadi. Namun karena mengalami cedera paha, striker jangkung Milan itu harus menyudahi pertandingan lebih dini.

Kepastian kondisi Borriello masih akan diketahui setelah pemeriksaan resmi oleh tim medis Milan. Namun Carlo Ancelotti meyakini strikernya itu tak akan bisa bermain saat derby nanti.

"Sepertinya tidak serius dan kami masih harus menunggu beberapa hari untuk melihat kondisi sebenarnya, tapi yang pasti ia tidak bisa pulih untuk derby," tandas Ancelotti seperti dikutip Football Italia.

Andriy Shevchenko dan Ronaldinho sepertinya akan menjadi opsi pengganti Borriello untuk laga melawan Inter di akhir pekan. Namun bila menyebut siapa yang memiliki peluang lebih besar untuk bermain, Sheva sepertinya jadi pilihan.

Selain Borriello, pemain Milan lainnya yang juga dipastikan absen adalah Alessandro Nesta dan Andrea Pirlo. Keduanya masih menjalani masa pemulihan karena cedera.
