MILAN (AP) -- AC Milan and new coach Filippo Inzaghi got off to a great start as it eased to a 3-1 win over Lazio in its Serie A opener on Sunday.

Goals from Keisuke Honda and Sulley Muntari and a penalty from Jeremy Menez gave Milan a comfortable lead before Lazio pulled one back with an own goal from new Rossoneri signing Alex.

New Milan goalkeeper Diego Lopez saved Antonio Candreva's spot kick in stoppage time.

It was a convincing performance from Milan, which showed how little it missed star striker Mario Balotelli, who moved to Liverpool last week.

Balotelli's replacement, Fernando Torres, was watching in the stands at San Siro after completing his two-year loan move from Chelsea.

In the afternoon's other match, Atalanta drew 0-0 at home to Hellas Verona.
