MILAN (AP) — AC Milan lost 2-0 at home to Palermo and failed to move back level with third-place Sampdoria, which beat Fiorentina 3-1 earlier Sunday in Serie A.

Cristian Zapata scored an own goal and was at fault for Paulo Dybala's second as two goals in as many minutes consigned Milan to its second loss of the season.

Milan goalkeeper Diego Lopez also had to pull off a string of fine saves in his first appearance since mid-September.

Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved a penalty to help his side move three points ahead of Milan and Udinese, which lost 4-2 to Genoa. Lazio can move level with a win at home to Cagliari on Monday night.

Sassuolo was held to a scoreless draw at bottom club Chievo Verona and Atalanta also drew 0-0 at Torino.
