AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf's winning start in the Italian league was ended on Saturday as Milan was held to 1-1 at home by Torino.

Seedorf was looking to become the first Milan coach since Luigi Bonizzoni in 1958-59 to win his opening three Serie A games.

Milan, which was without the suspended Mario Balotelli, dominated but Torino took the lead in the 17th minute thanks to a wonderful solo effort from Ciro Immobile.

He ran almost half the length of the pitch before feinting past Daniele Bonera and firing across into the bottom right corner for his 11th goal of the season.

Adil Rami scored his first for Milan since his move from Valencia to level matters four minutes after halftime.

The France defender ran onto Sulley Muntari's short pass before unleashing a rocket shot into the left of goal.

Robinho thought he gave Milan the lead 10 minutes later when he curled Kaka's through ball into the far side of the net, but he was narrowly ruled offside.
