Milan 0-2 Palermo

Fernando Torres

AC Milan missed the chance to go third in Serie A as visiting Palmero inflicted just a second defeat on coach Filippo Inzaghi.

An own goal from Cristian Zapata and Paulo Dybala's strike within the space of three first-half minutes earned the Sicilians a first league away win of the campaign.

Zapata headed a corner into his own net before Dybala fired into the corner.

Fernando Torres headed wide for the hapless hosts after the break.

Milan went into the match on the back of a six-match unbeaten run but, following two straight draws, the loss leaves them nine points behind leaders Juventus in seventh.

The Rossoneri ended last campaign in eighth, 45 points behind the champions Juventus, and they looked a long way off challenging for honours again with a dismal display.

Inzaghi's men went into the match with the best attacking record in Serie A but rarely troubled a resolute Palermo as the visitors moved up to 13th in the table.

Only saves by goalkeeper Diego Lopez from Dybala and Franco Vazquez prevented Palermo from being even more convincing winners.
