AC Milan suffering a major blow after losing against Palermo  in San Siro.   Milan was supposed to win the gamer after 2 draws wasting points to grab the top 3 positions.  History now is all for Palermo.  Imagine, the last time Palermo won in San Siro was back in the 2009-2010 season with a 0-2  thanks to the goals by Fabrizio Miccoli and Mark Bresciano.  Today, same result, Palermo defeating Milan with an own goal by Milan defender Cristian Zapata and the goal by forward Paulo Dybala.
