AC Milan win
AC Milan celebrate after scoring.


Japanese international Keisuke Honda scored a late free-kick to help seal the points for AC Milan in a 2-0 win over Chievo at the San Siro on Saturday as the Rossoneri ended their three-game winless run.

Milan hosted the Verona-based side looking to get back to winning ways after two successive draws, against Cesena and Empoli, and a 1-0 home defeat to Juventus last month.

A mis-hit volley from Sulley Muntari gave Milan the lead 10 minutes after the restart and as Chievo pressed for a late equaliser, Honda settled nerves with a well-struck curler which beat Chievo 'keeper Francesco Bardi at his near post in the 78th minute.
