Palermo scored early through Dorin Goian to beat Serie A leader AC Milan 1-0 on Saturday

AC Milan

The result means defending champion Inter Milan has the chance to close the gap to two points when it plays Lecce on Sunday, before the sides meet in the city derby on April 2.

Goian took advantage of hesitation in the Milan defense to open the scoring in the 10th minute, and despite enjoying the majority of possession in the second half, Milan failed to find an equalizer.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence was obvious as Massimo Allegri’s side was reduced to shooting from long range in the vague hope of drawing level.

Also, Lazio beat Cesena 1-0.
