7' Keisuke Honda 1-0 // 56' Sulley Ali Muntari 2-0 // 64' (pen.) Jeremy Menez 3-0 // 67' 3-1 (o.g.) Alex
AC Milan started their new season under Filippo Inzaghi reign in the best possible way after grabbing all three points over strong Lazio side.
Rossoneri tried to play a fast direct football and that tactic worked out well when they got themselves in front through Keisuke Honda's finish on seven minutes.
Both teams tried to push forward from that moment on but AC Milan looked more comfortable in handling their opponent's aggressive play.
After the break, nothing really changed much as Rossoneri still looking solid and eventually got themselves a second goal from Sulley Muntari's close range effort.
Milan practically sealed off their three points when Jeremy Menez scored from the spot kick on 64 minutes.
However, tired legs starting to hit Rossoneri players as they failed to maintain their high intensity and allowing Lazio a way back into the match when Alex unfortunately scored an own goal on 67 minutes.
That goal gave an additional spirit for the Biancocelesti as they were pouring forward vigorously putting lots of pressure on tired Milan players.
The visitor were close to make it 3-2 in the end when they earned a controversial spot kick, but Antonio Candreva failed to beat Diego Lopez as Rossoneri holding on to their 3-1 lead.
