Niang scores 2, sets up 1 in AC Milan's 4-1 win over Samp

ROME (AP) Forward M'Baye Niang ended his AC Milan scoring drought in style, netting twice and setting up one in a 4-1 win over Sampdoria on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Niang hadn't scored in 35 previous Serie A appearances for Milan.

After providing the cross for Giacomo Bonaventura's opener, Niang converted a penalty before halftime then intercepted a pass from Sampdoria's goalkeeper for another score after the interval.
