Francesco Modesto struck the winner for Parma eight minutes from time after Napoli's Giuseppe Mascara had equalised following Massimo Gobbi's 57th-minute opener.

Napoli remain a point behind leaders Juventus, who visit Chievo Verona on Sunday, with 10 points. Parma are a further point back and 11th placed Milan are three points off top spot.

Milan's Antonio Nocerino, scoring against his former club, Robinho and Antonio Cassano were all on target as disappointing Palermo were torn apart at the San Siro.

Earlier on Saturday, Internazionale suffered their fourth loss in sixth Serie A matches, going down 2-1 at Catania.
