Player Ratings: Siena 1-5 Milan (


Abbiati - N/A: Game lasted just 11 minutes before he was carried off injured, and replaced by Dida, who had a sound match.

Zambrotta - 6.5: Steady if unspectacular down the right hand side. Did not bomb forward as much as usual.

Favalli - 6.5: Caused the odd problem by Maccarone's pace and movement, but largely did okay.

Maldini - 8.0: Excellent this afternoon. One superb goal-saving tackle on Vergassola, Maldini's positioning was spot on.

Jankulovski - 5.5: Struggled against Zuniga in the first half, and was bamboozled by the Colombian, but recovered after the break.

Flamini - 8.5: Is in a good moment of form, and is now the real Flamini. Won the penalty, created the open goal miss for Kaka, and dominated the midfield.

Pirlo - 8.0: Passing was inch-perfect this afternoon, as proved with his assist for Inzaghi's second goal. Opened the scoring from the spot.

Ambrosini - 6.5: Quietly went about his work in the middle-of-the-park, without really making too much of an impact. Replaced by Kaka at half time.

Beckham - 8.0: Impressed again in the trequartista role. Provided the assist for Inzaghi's first goal, and was involved in the veteran's landmark second.

Pato - 8.5: Electric today. The Siena defence could not handle the Brazilian wonderkid, who helped himself to two goals, including an absolute screamer.

Inzaghi - 9.0: What can you say about Superpippo? A true legend of the game - one of the greatest strikers of all time. Scored twice today, to make it 300 goals in a brilliant career.


Dida - 6.5, Kaka - 6.5, Ronaldinho 7.0
