Milan are running

AC Milan's Kaka converted two spot kicks Sunday to help the Rossoneri beat 10-man Palermo 3-0 and move to second place above Juventus, who were held to a 2-2 draw at bottom side Reggina. Serie A leaders Inter Milan hold a seven-point lead on city rivals Milan ahead of an away game to Napoli with six games left.

The first few minutes confirmed Milan's good moment of form, that allowed the Rossoneri to control the match with a high rhythm. Palermo, meanwhile, lacked a genuine striker, and on the counterattack they used the runs towards the center of Miccoli and Cavani.

After only 8 minutes Milan opened the scoring. Ambrosini penetrated into the area and was blocked with a foul by Cassani. For the referee it's a penalty which Kaka converted by putting it past Amelia with a precise shot toward the bottom left corner.

In the 20th minute came the second Milan goal Kaka played it to Ambrosini who with a perfect cross into the area found Filippo Inzaghi, who confirmed he is a true goalscorer and notched his 10th goal from the past seven games.

The Rosanero answered through Miccoli, who tried to surprise Dida in the 33rd minute with a nice shot from distance, while 5 minutes later Cavani missed the target on a free kick.

The first half ended with a nice curling shot by Kaka which went wide.

Palermo's hopes for a comeback faded when their defender Cesare Bovo was dismissed on 48 minutes, and entirely vanished after a second penalty converted from Kaka.

With no danger anymore, Carlo Ancelotti replaced Seedorf to Ronaldinho and Inzaghi to Shevchenko. In the 70th minute Pirlo came close to a fourth goal with a nice shot from distance.

Ronaldinho, Shevchenko, and Zambrotta still tried, in that order, but the result didn't change. For Milan it was the 5th consecutive victory in the league.

MILAN : Dida; Flamini, Maldini, Favalli, Zambrotta; Beckham, Pirlo, Ambrosini; Seedorf; Kaka, Inzaghi.

PALERMO: Amelia; Cassani, Kjaer, Bovo, Balzaretti; Migliaccio, Liverani, Nocerino; Simplicio; Miccoli, Cavani.
