AS Bari 0 AC Milan 2

Another game with Beckham resigned to the bench as Leonardo juggles his players to find the best combination. The first half was fairly uneventful, neither side really stamping their authority on the match. Milan were lucky to survive a penalty shout on 26 mins, and Borriello had an effort cleared from the goal line on 40 minutes. However only two minutes later Ronaldinho found Borriello with a searching cross into the box, he met it with his left foot for a mid-air volley that found the target and gave Milan the first goal of the game.
The second half saw Milan start to show their class, but without much return, and they were on the verge of allowing Bari back into the game. On 68 minutes Ronaldinho was free in the box and had his close-range shot saved only for the clearing header to fall to Pato's feet. Pato took the chance to slot the ball into the back of the net to make the score 2-0 to Milan. On 80 minutes Beckham finally joined the fray replacing Gattuso and got plenty of the ball - none of his long cross-field passes were forthcoming though as Milan intended to keep the ball. In the final few minutes, Pato gave away a penalty, but Abbiati in the Milan goal was up to the task and dived low to his right to save it one-handed. Milan walk away with all the points and all the goals...
