Meanwhile, Fiorentina could only muster a point from their trip to Bologna.

AC Milan will be expected to mount a serious challenge to the crown currently held by city rivals Inter Milan this season, and they kicked off their campaign in positive fashion.

The Rossoneri overcame Siena 2-1 on the road, with Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato the star of the show.

The Samba starlet opened the scoring on 29 minutes, latching on to a Ronaldinho through-ball before firing home.

Abdelkader Ghezzal did level matters on 34 minutes, but Pato ensured Milan claimed maximum points when he grabbed his second of the night three minutes into the second half.

Bologna and Fiorentina had the honour of getting the new season under way and they played out a 1-1 draw at Renato Dall'Ara.

The hosts took the lead on 24 minutes when Pablo Osvaldo towered above a statuesque defence to nod the opener.

Struggling to create chances the Viola then turned to Romanain talisman Adrian Mutu, and he duly produced a 64th-minute equaliser after less than 20 minutes on the field.
