David Beckham produced a vintage display as AC Milan moved up to second in Serie A with a 5-1 win over Torino. Starting the match after two games as an unused substitute after a shoulder injury, Beckham set up the first two goals of a Filippo Inzaghi hat-trick. It was Inzaghi’s second hat-trick in his last six matches - a purple patch that has included nine goals in all. The 35-year-old combined superbly with Beckham and another goal set up by the 33-year-old Englishman was disallowed. The win moved Milan level on points with Juventus, but still 10 points off Inter Milan who look destined to win Serie A. Beckham first found Inzaghi’s head on nine minutes from a free-kick, but the Milan striker had strayed offside and the goal was ruled out. Four minutes later the Italian nodded home a Beckham corner and on 37 minutes a clever chip into the box from the Englishman again found Inzaghi head’s to make it 2-0. After the break Milan ran riot as substitute Ronaldinho set up Inzaghi for his hat-trick on the hour mark before Kaka added a penalty after Massimo Ambrosini was brought down by goalkeeper Matteo Sereni. Ivan Franceschini got Torino on the scoresheet 10 minutes from time but Ambrosini finished off a sumptuous team move in the last minute to round off the scoring. On Saturday, 10-man Juventus grabbed a point at home to Inter as Zdenek Grygera’s injury-time header earned them a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.
