David Beckham made his debut in the starting line-up for AC Milan, but it was Roma who scored first as Riise crossed into Mirko Vucinic who controlled, turned Jankulovski and fired home. The Rossoneri turned the match on its head at the start of the second half, Kaka set up Alexandre Pato for the leveller before Pato skinned Mexes and lifted the ball over Doni to score twice in seven minutes. But Roma kept battling and they levelled when Vucinic bagged his second with a gentle diving header that Abbiati was helpless to stop.
Giallorossi in vantaggio all 22′ con il montenegrino Vucinic, il giovane brasiliano Pato ribalta il risultato con una doppietta nei primi 7′ della ripresa, ma al 25′ Vucinic sigla il pari. Buon esordio ufficiale finora per Beckham in campo dal 1′ al posto di Flamini.
