Milan: Mario Balotelli scored a brace, including a stunning free-kick seven minutes from time, to help secure a share of the points for Milan in a hard-fought 2-2 away draw to Livorno on Saturday.

Balotelli had opened the scoring in the eighth minute with a cheeky but fortuitous flick at the back post following Kaka's inviting ball across the face of goal.

However Livorno, the home town of Massimiliano Allegri, were in no mood to honour the Milan coach's 200th game in Serie A and were soon back level and pushing for the win.
