MILAN (REUTERS) - Kaka scored his first goal since returning to AC Milan at the start of the season in their 1-1 draw against Lazio in Serie A on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, back at San Siro after four unhappy seasons with Real Madrid, gave Milan the lead in the 54th minute with a delightful curling effort. Lazio replied with a goal from defender Michael Ciani, leaving Milan in a modest 10th place with 12 points from 10 games.

Champions Juventus, helped by a trademark Andrea Pirlo free kick, trounced Catania 4-0 to stay level on points with second-placed Napoli who controversially won 2-1 at Fiorentina.

The hosts were furious when Juan Cuadrado had a late penalty appeal turned down was and sent off after picking up a second yellow card for diving.

Napoli and Juventus both have 25 points with Napoli, two behind AS Roma who host Chievo on Thursday.
