Milan:

Relegation-threatened Palermo drew 1-1 at home with Bologna in Serie A on Sunday after being let down by a goalkeeping error.

Two straight wins previously gave Palermo hope of achieving safety, and it made the perfect start when Josip Ilicic fired into the net following a one-two with Fabrizio Miccoli.

However, Bologna leveled following a moment of madness from Parma goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino.

Sorrentino went to collect Michel Morganella's backpass but appeared to only then remember he could not touch it with his hands. The ball rolled under his body, allowing Manolo Gabbiadini to round Sorrentino and slot into an empty net.

Palermo almost restored its lead three minutes from halftime when Miccoli curled a right-footed shot that hit the post.

The Sicilian side is two points from safety.
