Nesta salvages Milan

ROME: Centre-back Alessandro Nesta scored a late brace to salvage a victory for AC Milan away to plucky Chievo. But Nesta’s late heroics completed a stunning week for Milan which began last weekend with a come-from-behind 2-1 success over AS Roma before their sizzling midweek 3-2 win at Real Madrid. Earlier, Juventus beat Siena 1-0. The win left Juve four points behind leaders Inter Milan. Juve are third with Sampdoria second, just two points behind Inter. AS Roma crashed again as they lost 1-0 at home to 10-man Livorno.
