Juventus 0 AC Milan 3

Once again, Beckham began the game in his familiar position the day after Galaxy team-mate Landon Donovan made his on-loan debut for Everton in the English premiership.
The first half started fairly cautiously with neither Juventus or Milan really establishing the upper hand, and it was on 28 minutes that a corner was not dealt with by the Juve defence, the ball passed through the defenders on the near-post and fell to Nesta who made no mistake from all of 1 yard to put Milan 1-0 up.
The first half delivered no further goals, but like Wednesdays game, the tackles were flying in and the ref's whistle was kept busy. Beckham appeared to be fitting in well to the Serie A side, but was not as busy this time as in the previous game where he was often to be found in and around the penalty area.
The second half started in earnest as both teams sought out another goal. As a statement of intent, Juve brought on Del Piero after just 10 mins of the second half, but after 71 minutes Milan scored again from a corner to take them 2 up. Ronaldinho headed into the back of the Juventus net to give Milan a two-goal cushion. Milan kept possession for much of the remainder of the game much to the frustration of the Juve faithful who let of enough fire-crackers for the cameras to lose sight of much of the game. However, in the closing minutes, Beckham popped a lovely cross into the box for Ronaldinho to slot home for his second and Milan's third.
3-0 and an official 'assist' for the English star in what has been a very good week for AC Milan.
