Ciro Immobile scored a double including one from the spot to bring his tally to eight for the season, as injury-hit Lazio stayed fourth with a comfortable 3-0 win at Verona. Immobile converted a penalty after 24 minutes, scored from the edge of the box before the break and then teed up Adam Marusic for his first Serie A goal on 60 minutes. City rivals Roma -- who have a game in hand -- are fifth, after easing past Udinese 3-1 on Saturday.

"We deserved this victory, we fought to the end and must build on this performance," said Zapata. "It's important for us to keep a clean sheet too, now we need to rest and prepare for another important match." Milan had problems defensively with Cristian Zapata having a forgettable afternoon and Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli performing little better.

Sampdoria dominated from the outset with the visitors having a scare after two minutes when Ivan Strinic's cross hit Franck Kessie on the arm and the referee awarded a penalty. However, the decision was overturned by the video assistant referee. Chievo won at 10-man Cagliari thanks to goals in the second half from Roberto Inglese and Mariusz Stepinski as Crotone earned their first win of the season 2-0 over tailenders Benevento.
