MILAN, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu earned Fiorentina a 1-1 draw with European champions AC Milan at the San Siro on Monday.
The result gave the two sides four points from two Serie A games, two fewer than leaders Juventus and AS Roma.
Milan went into the match in high spirits after beating Sevilla 3-1 in the European Super Cup on Friday and opening their league campaign with a 3-0 win at Genoa.
The visitors were also in fine fettle thanks to last week's 3-1 victory over Empoli.
Milan took control after a slow start, with French goalkeeper Sebastien Frey pulling off two superb saves in rapid succession to keep out Kaka and Gilardino.
The home side took the lead in the 27th minute when Fiorentina's Dario Dainelli brought down Massimo Ambrosini and Kaka converted the penalty.
It was the Brazilian's fourth goal in three competitive games this season.
Romanian international Mutu headed in a Mario Santana cross to equalise 11 minutes into the second half.
Kaka and Mutu came close to scoring the winner while Milan's Filippo Inzaghi failed to make contact with the ball in front of a gaping goal.
