Gila nets in seven-goal thriller

Former Italian Under-21 star, Alberto Gilardino, continues to prove his form with his new club in AC Milan -- this time against his former club in the ailing AC Parma. But AC Milan hardly looked like the dominant force at home in the San Siro tonight.

Allowing three Parma goals, the AC Milan defense looked old and tired. Milan's Brazilian goalie, Dida, misjudged some balls, and players like playmaker Andrea Pirlo were forced to take down Parma players from behind to cover for the defensive gaps.

Sometimes even winning can still leave a team with a sense of failure... Milan almost played down to competition as low as the nose-diving Parma. Parma's bright spot was the resurgence of attacking midfielder, Marco Marchionni, who scored a brace and almost brought Parma home points from this affair.
