To Italy for a big match in Serie A that saw third placed AC Milan at home to top of the table Juventus. Milan had lost their last nine matches to the five-time defending champions, but the Rossoneri have shown signs of improvement this campaign and rocket from 18 year-old Manuel Locatelli would be the difference at the San Siro, after a controversial disallowed goal for Juve.

The Bianconerri look good early but thier goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is forced to make a diving save on this shot from Milan's Suso in the tenth minute.

The controversial moment comes in the 35th minute on this free kick from Miralem Pjanic that seems to bounce into the corner without a touch from the leaping Mehdi Benatia. The referee initially calls it a goal, but the officials review and declare it offside, a marginal call against Benatia who did not seem to interfere with the play.

The goal was waved off and that would be huge in the 65th minute when Locatelli takes one touch before hammering a shot into the roof of the net. A thunderous strike from the Italian youngster in only his second start this season and it's 1-0 Milan. Juve's six game winning streak in jeopardy as fans young and old roar their approval.

Milan hang on for the 1-0 win and move up to second place as Vincenzo Montella's young side continue their strong start to the season.
