Serie A: Adriano extends Inter's winning streak

MILAN, Dec 23 (Reuters) - Brazilian striker Adriano scored his first goal in more than nine months as leaders Inter Milan equalled the Serie A record of 11 straight wins with a 2-1 victory over Atalanta on Saturday.

Unbeaten Inter go into the Christmas break with a seven-point lead over AS Roma who beat Cagliari 2-0 with goals from Brazilians Rodrigo Taddei and Mancini.

Inter's run of victories equals AS Roma's Serie A record which was set last season.

On a good day for Brazilians, Kaka and Ricardo Oliveira were on target for AC Milan in their 3-0 win at Udinese -- Italy striker Alberto Gilardino also finding the target.

Bottom club Ascoli finally got their first win of the season with a 3-0 win over Chievo while Lazio, forced to play with 10 men for most of the game, following the dismissal of Sebastiano Siviglia in the 14th minute, enjoyed an impressive 3-1 win at Parma.

Catania moved up to fourth after a hat-trick from Gionatha Spinesi helped them to a 4-2 win over Sampdoria.

At the San Siro, Inter suffered an early setback when Atalanta playmaker Cristiano Doni fired the visitors in front with a superb strike with the outside of his foot in the 16th minute.

Inter coach Roberto Mancini brought on Portuguese winger Luis Figo after the break and the former Real Madrid player turned the game around.

Figo provided the cross which Adriano met with a diving header for his first goal in Serie A since March 11.

Then another Figo cross, this time from a free-kick, led to the winner with Atalanta defender Simone Loria heading into his own net.

'We knew this wasn't going to be an easy game and after we struggled in the first half we were able to turn the game around after the break,' Mancini told Italy's Sky Sport.

A brilliant overhead kick from Taddei set Roma on their way in the fifth minute at the Olympic stadium -- the Brazilian producing an acrobatic shot to fire home a cross from Christian Panucci.

Mancini made sure of the win with a clinical finish after good work down the flank from 19-year-old midfielder Aleandro Rosi.
