AC Milan's 1-1 tie with Reggina on Saturday proved costly. The result dropped the Rossoneri eight points behind leader Inter Milan a week before their
derby, and Brazilian star Kaka
was injured with a foot injury that will keep him out of action for at least two weeks.
Kaka scored on a penalty
kick in the 67th minute to salvage a point for Milan at the San Siro Stadium.
The match featured Ronaldinho
's first start in a month, but he was substituted in the
second half after having had little impact. David Beckham
started and played the whole game for AC Milan.
