Milan managed to claim their second Serie A victory this evening as they crushed Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico with an emphatic 5-1 win over the Romans with goals by Ambrosini and tww each from Kaká and Gilardino.
Kaká opened the scoring in the second half, with a fantastic turn to slot it home past the young inexperienced goalkeeper, Muslera, and to extend the European Champions' lead.
The win comes after much criticism as the rossoneri have failed to win since the opening game of the season, against Genoa, in August.
Following an embarrassing defeat to Celtic during midweek Milan really needed to bounce back, and they did so in fine fashion. No one was expecting such a triumph, maybe it was Dida's errors that forced Milan to wake up or President Silvio Berlusconi's words saying that this is the worst crisis Milan had been in since he bought the club in the 80's. Whatever it was, Milan looked good and hopefully they can continue like this.
The game was inspired by a fantastic Ambrosini goal, that sent Milan on the way, but minutes later Lazio equalised through a goal by Mauri. But on the brink of half time Kaká slotted home his 4th penalty of the season and his 5th goal to put the Via Turati outfit in the lead.
Along with Kaká, Gilardino also inspired the Rossoneri to get back on track as he had a goal disallowed in the first half, but he bounced back with two great goals to put the game beyond a doubt.
Gilardino is the first of the rossoneri forwards to score so far this season, and his brace is one that will hopefully silence the angry fans that have recently been booing him and Dida at the San Siro.
His goals have come as a huge relief to Milan and himself after much criticism, and last season he had to wait as long as the 9th game to get his first goal of the season while, this time it has come in the 7th round of the campaign. This will no doubt be a confidence booster for him and his teammates and he will surely go on to score more!
