A perfect chip from Pato

[VIDEO PICK] AC Milan's Brazilian striker Pato sealed his team's 3-0 win over Napoli with a sublime strike.

After receiving the ball just inside Napoli's half, the 21-year-old calmly dribbled downfield and left befuddled the two Napoli defenders who thought they'd blocked his path to goal.

The win put the league leader six points ahead of third-place Napoli and five points ahead of Inter Milan.

    Pato is going to be one of the best in the world in a year, better than Cristiano Ronaldo....he'll be playing for Barcelona in a year or!!!!

    Where's the defensive pressure on Pato? Both Napoli defenders retreat, allowing him to move within striking range. Basic defending with two defenders: pressure and cover.
