A goal from Brazilian Serginho in the final minute sent Milan to the top of Serie A.A sensational, yet controversial, goal from Brazilian Serginho in the final minute sent Milan to the top of Serie A.
The champions looked as if they had missed their chance to climb above Juventus as Cagliari looked destined to claim a goalless draw at The Giuseppe Meazza.
However, in the very last minute Milan grabbed the goal which gave them victory.
Cafu pressured Francesco Passano near the corner and the substitute went over under the Brazilian's challenge - Milan continued as the referee waved play on and the Samba star crossed for fellow countryman Serginho who fired home from 18-yards.
Cagliari were fuming and the whole team confronted referee Daniele Tombolini and Alessandro Agostini saw red for his protests. Milan's Giuseppe Pancaro had earlier also been dismissed.
Milan will be relieved to have gone top and taken advantage of Juventus' 0-0 draw at Messina - but their evening was soured after Andrei Shevchenko was forced off after just ten minutes with a very nasty head injury.
Milan knew they could go top as Juve had earlier played out a draw at Messina.
The Old Lady could have gone five points clear with victory, but they could not find a way through at the Giovanni Celeste.
Messina are really enjoying life in Serie A after winning promotion last season and they are likely to take great heart from another battling performance.
A late goal form Henok Goitom gave fourth place Udinese a 1-1 draw with third placed Internazionale at The Friuli.
Juan Veron had put Inter ahead just before the hour and Roberto Mancini's side looked like sealing all three points until Goitom pounced.
