AC Milan’s title challenge stuttered once more tonight as they were held to a draw at home to struggling Lazio.
With leaders Inter Milan losing at Roma yesterday, the opportunity was there for Milan to move within a point of the Serie A summit.
But not for the first time this season they blew it.
They went ahead when Marco Borriello netted from the spot in the 18th minute but some lax defending allowed Stephan Lichtsteiner to equalise just after the half-hour mark.
Milan huffed and puffed in the second half but Lazio deserved the point which moved them five points clear of the relegation zone.
