MILAN – A tough match for the rossoneri against an organised and compact Palermo side. Diego Lopez made a number of excellent saves in the first-half to keep Milan in the game, but there was nothing that could be done to stop an unlucky Zapata scoring an own-goal on 24 minutes and Dybala’s strike on 26 minutes. The team reacted strongly in the second-half with Torres and Pazzini leading the line upfront. Despite their best efforts, Milan were unable to find a way back. Here are some stats to emerge from the match: 
22- the number of players used by coach Filippo Inzaghi during the first 10 matches of the season. Riccardo Saponara made his season debut from the first minute against Palermo. 
4- the number of points more that Milan have compared to this time last year. Last season Milan after 10 matches had collected 12 points: 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats. 
13 December 2009- the last time Palermo won away at the San Siro against Milan. On that day the Sicilian side also won 2-0. Miccoli and Bresciano scored the goals. 
6- the number of matches Milan went unbeaten before the match with Palermo on Sunday night. That run consisted of 2 wins and 4 draws.
