Milan held in Torino draw

AC Milan dropped their first points under Clarence Seedorf as high-flying Torino came away from the San Siro with a 1-1 draw.

Ciro Immobile gave the visitors the lead in the 17th minute, but an Adil Rami strike early in the second half earned the Rossoneri a point.

Milan put Torino under pressure for much of the second half, but failed to find a winning goal, leaving Seedorf with only a point after two wins in his first two Serie A games in charge.

Udinese ended a run of four successive Serie A defeats with a 2-0 win at Bologna that will ease their relegation fears.

Udinese have finished fifth, third and fourth in the last three seasons but they have recently found themselves battling at the wrong end of the table after failing to take point from their first four matches of 2014.

However, they brought that miserable run to a close on Saturday after goals from Antonio Di Natale and Nicolas Lopez earned them a three-point haul from their trip to fellow strugglers Bologna.

Mauricio Pinilla earned Cagliari their first Serie A victory in seven attempts as his first-half penalty settled a 1-0 home victory over an uninspiring Fiorentina side at the Stadio Sant'Elia.

It was difficult to tell which club was challenging for a top-three spot and which one was battling to avoid a relegation battle as Cagliari tormented Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto for over an hour in Sardinia.

Pinilla scored a penalty shortly before half-time to lift Cagliari into 13th place while Vincenzo Montella's Fiorentina could now see Inter Milan close to within five points of taking fourth place with victory at Juventus on Sunday.
