Roberto Mancini's men are now five points behind the all-conquering Juve, although they have played a game more, thanks to a comprehensive 3-0 win over Palermo.
The Nerazzurri took the lead through Argentinian midfielder Esteban Cambiasso on 33 minutes, but had to be patient to grab their second.
Christian Terlizzi put through his own net on 77 minutes and the Milan outfit capped a comfortable win when Portuguese hero Luis Figo scored three minutes later.
Lazio missed the chance to move seventh in Serie A as they finished with nine men in a 1-1 draw with Cagliari.
The Biancocelesti edged in front through controversial former West Ham and Charlton forward Paolo Di Canio as he netted with ten minutes to go of the first half.
However, the capital club then began to implode when Sebastiano Siviglia was dismissed for kicking Nelson Abeijon five minutes later.
The visitors, who moved up to joint 15th with the point, drew equal on 69 minutes through Massimo Gobbi, and worse was to follow for Lazio.
Midfielder Fabio Liverani was shown a yellow card on 80 minutes and his caution was rapidly turned into a dismissal when he persisted to protest to referee Mario Mazzoleni.
