Spezia are the first promoted side to beat AC Milan since Benevento in April 2018

AC Milan missed the chance to extend their lead at the top of Serie A as Spezia recorded only the second Serie A home win in their history.

City rivals Inter will go top if they beat Lazio on Sunday – with the Milan derby next weekend.

Promoted Spezia, who were in the fourth tier in 2010, fully deserved their victory and move up to 14th.

Giulio Maggiore was unmarked to slot home from close range and Simone Bastoni blasted in a fine second.

It was only a third league defeat for Milan, who did not manage a shot on target.

They remain seven points above defending champions Juventus, who lost to Napoli earlier in the day.
