MILAN — Juventus inflicted a first Serie A defeat of the season on league leaders AC Milan as a Federico Chiesa double led the Italian champions to an exhilarating 3-1 win at San Siro on Wednesday.
Chiesa fired home a superb opener before makeshift midfielder Davide Calabria equalized for Milan at the end of an eventful, end-to-end first half.
But the visitors pulled away after the break as Chiesa curled in his second and substitute Weston McKennie swept in from close range to consign Milan to their first league defeat since March 8, 2020, a run of 27 games.
Stefano Pioli’s side remain top of the table on 37 points, one ahead of second-placed Inter Milan, who lost to Sampdoria earlier on Wednesday.
Juventus rise to fourth place on 30 points, but have a game in hand over the three teams above them.
