Cristiano Ronaldo finished San Siro hoodoo to help Juventus win 2-0 after AC Milan onwards lost Gonzalo Higuain a penalty against his ex-team on Sunday.
Higuain Juventus left in the assault after signing Ronaldo and had a nightmare game as he was also sent seven minutes to disagree after being ordered for a fake on Medhi Benatia.
Mario Mandzukic scored at an early stage and Ronaldo scored the result of the final nine minutes as Serie A Juventus's leader won Milan to restore his six-point advantage over Napoli, which beat Genoa 2-1 on Saturday.
Ronaldo's first goal in six games in San Siro, has played the first in the iconic stadium for Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The Portuguese runned into the corner banner, pointing out all its fellow members to celebrate with.
"I'm very happy, especially for the team," said Ronaldo, who has been playing and scoring regularly despite the allegation of rape allegation in the United States. "We played good football, it's never easy to play in San Siro against Milan.
"We show that we're better, I'll be very happy. It's an important victory, we're back six points in front of Naples. I've also scored nod, I'll be satisfied. "
Milan slipped to the fifth, a point behind Lazio fourth, after seeing his three-game run in the league that ended.
"We played against a team that has been winning for many years and every year is a sign of the best player," said Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso. "Our levels are different, the penalty may have changed something but I liked my team, not just throw it out.
"Juventus is not the only strongest team in Italy, this is the most built-in Europe with Manchester City and Barcelona. We could have stayed in the game until the end … but I've never had the feeling that we're going to hurt it. "
Juventus was planning to bounce back from Wednesday 2-1 in his home to Manchester United and Mandzukic welcomed back from injury.
Croatia took less than eight minutes to break the dead game, running in the back post to stop Alex Sandro from the left.
There were very few clever opportunities in a cagey game, but Milan was punished just before half term when he was arrested by Benatia Higuain's attempt.
Higuain was stepping up but his kick was weak and Juventus washer, Wojciech Szczesny, pulled his right post.
Juventus doubled his memory nine minutes. Joao Cancelo's shot was beaten by Milan Gianluigi Donnarumma goalkeeper, but just into the Ronaldo route, which blew to the net from a distance.
Kathryn Mayorga filed a civil vote in September in Nevada claiming Ronaldo challenged her at Las Vegas hotel in 2009. The police reopened the claim to her claim.
Ronaldo has rejected any wrongdoing.
Inter Milan was picked up in a 4-1 loss in the regional competitive Atalanta for his first Serie A tour in almost two months.
He left the loss between the third, nine points behind Juventus.
Inter had won six straight away and had not lost since 1-0 went home to Parma on September 15.
"We were not ready for this game," said coach coach Luciano Spalletti. "Our standards have fallen. After a series of victories it does not mean that they are automatically run. We need to work on that."
Hans Hateboer gave an early advantage to Atalanta with a drop in and the forces wasted a number of other opportunities – including an attempt away from the post – to add to the front before the break, as Inter appears after draw 1-1 with Barcelona in the Champions League.
Mauro Icardi was in line with a two-minute penalty in the second half following Atalanta's handball, but Gianluca Mancini replaced the Atalanta leader after the hour mark with a header of Josip Ilicic free kick.
Berat Djimsiti and Papu Gomez completed the scoring, on the other side between the middlefielders of Marcelo Brozovic fields following a second order.
