Milan missed the chance to close the gap on Juventus after a shock 2-1 defeat to Chievo.
Chievo came from a goal down to earn a surprise victory for the home side.
Milan looked to be on their way to all three points when Kakha Kaladze gave them the lead on 23 minutes.
Chievo fought back and drew level straight after the break when Sergio Pellissier found the net.
The flying donkeys then grabbed the winner through Simone Tiribocchi eight minutes from time to dent Milan's title hopes and move Chievo into fifth spot in Serie A.
Internazionale moved up to third with a narrow 1-0 win over struggling Ascoli.
Brazilian ace Adriano grabbed the only goal of the game on 25 minutes with a fine free kick to give Roberto Mancini's men all three points.
