Juventus missed the chance to take a big step toward a ninth successive Serie A title as they let a two-goal lead slip in a 4-2 loss at AC Milan.

Juventus could have extended their lead at the top of the table to 10 points with a win and a tight first half finished goalless after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal ruled out for offside shortly before the break.

But Adrien Rabiot broke the deadlock two minutes after the restart by curling a strike into the top-right corner with Cristiano Ronaldo doubling Juventus’ lead six minutes later.

However, Milan turned the match around completely in the space of five minutes.

Ibrahimovic converted a penalty in the 62nd minute following a handball from Leonardo Bonucci before two quickfire goals from Franck Kessi and substitute Rafael Leo.

Milan extended their advantage 10 minutes from full time when Giacomo Bonaventura capitalised on an error from Juventus defender Alex Sandro to set up Ante Rebic.

Elsewhere in Serie A, Lecce missed a penalty and also had a goal disallowed, but still managed an upset win over title-chasing Lazio.

Fabio Lucioni and Khouma Babacar scored for Lecce after Felipe Caicedo had given Lazio an early lead.

Lazio’s bad night was made worse when defender Patric was sent off for biting Giulio Donati in an incident that could lead to a lengthy ban.

Lazio were just a point behind Juventus when the season was halted because of the coronavirus pandemic. They had been on a record unbeaten run of 21 games but the Roman side have lost three of their five matches since the season resumed.
