Milan 3 Palermo 0

Yet another three points taken as the season nears it's end and Milan continue to dominate at the San Siro. Milan took charge from the first whistle scoring the opening goal after just 8 minutes - it was Ambrosini winning another penalty, and Kaka finishing in style.
Palermo never recovered from this body blow, and lacking any real strike-force, they allowed Milan to show all the creativity. It was only 12 minutes later that Inzaghi popped up in the box to continue his own scoring bonanza and take Milan into a 2-0 lead. A few minutes later Beckham sent a shot over the bar when he should really have been celebrating another Milan goal. Milan continued to create all the pressure and went into half time with a two-goal lead.
Palermo made a bright start in the second half but quickly lost a player to a red card for persitent fouling (mostly of Kaka). This finished off Palermo and Milan were able to take their foot off the pedal and just control the game. Just before the hour Kaka drew another penalty which he took himself, scoring and finishing the game off at 3-0. Ancelotti then brought on Ronaldinho and Shevchenko with Palermo all but extinguished. Despite a few other chances, the game ended a very comfortable 3-0 to Milan.
Currently, Milan are showing the best form of all the Serie A teams and are consolidating their second placed position in the league. They are on 67 points, 7 shy of league leaders Inter and two above third placed Juventus.
