* Inter fight back to beat Cesena with late goals
* Pazzini double means Milan celebrations must wait
* Third-placed Napoli keep pace by beating Genoa (writes through, updates after Napoli win)
AC Milan must wait at least another week to celebrate their first title in seven seasons after an incredible stoppage-time double from Giampaolo Pazzini gave champions Inter Milan a 2-1 win at Cesena on Saturday.
Substitute Pazzini volleyed home the equaliser a minute into added time and then headed the winner in the dying seconds after Igor Budan had given Cesena a deserved lead in the 55th minute.
Third-placed Napoli beat Genoa 1-0 in the late game with an 83rd minute Marek Hamsik goal that kept alive their faint title hopes and stretched their advantage over fifth-placed Udinese to nine points in the battle for Champions League places.
Inter, champions for the past five seasons, have 69 points behind a Milan side on 74 who have a chance to pull eight points clear again when they host mid-table Bologna at the San Siro on Sunday after which there will be only three matches left.
The defeat leaves Cesena struggling in 15th position, just three points above the relegation zone.
"It was all planned," Inter coach Leonardo joked to Sky Italia TV. "Seriously, though, we found it difficult to break them down but Pazzini got the service and showed what he is about.
"We are just thinking of ourselves not about Milan. We're still competing for the league and the cup."
In a first half controlled by Cesena, Luca Castellazzi, replacing the suspended Julio Cesar, had to be alert after just six minutes, bravely throwing himself at the feet of Emanuele Giaccherini as the impish forward bore down on goal.
Without injured playmaker Wesley Sneijder, the Nerazzurri struggled to create clear chances with Cesena goalkeeper Francesco Antoniolo finally tested by a booming long-range effort from centre back Lucio on the stroke of halftime.
Cesena's energy was rewarded 10 minutes into the second half when right back Luca Ceccarelli burst down the flank and sent in the perfect cross for Budan to volley sweetly into the net from eight metres for his first goal of the season.
Inter finally got into their stride and, after Lucio nodded wide in the 73rd, Pazzini twice went close with headers.
Just when it seemed Inter would give up their title with a whimper, the former Sampdoria striker struck in devastating fashion as he found room in the area to score from crosses by Samuel Eto'o and Maicon.
"We didn't want to just give up the title," Pazzini told Sky Italia. "We showed our pride and proved we still have fight."
On a rain-soaked surface at the San Paolo, Ezequiel Lavezzi, back after suspension, was involved in Napoli's best chances. He fired just wide after 12 minutes before crossing for Michele Pazienza to shave the post with a header eight minutes later.
Genoa's Juraj Kucka shot inches wide with a powerful drive from distance after 25 minutes for the mid-table side but Napoli piled on the pressure in the second half with Lavezzi firing over after 56 minutes when goalkeeper Eduardo fumbled.
Substitute Hassan Yebda, top scorer Edinson Cavani and Lavezzi all missed with headers before Marek Hamsik chested down a cross and slotted into the corner for his 11th of the season.
"It was a vital win but we still have three games to play and we're not mathematically certain to be in the Champions League yet," Hamsik told Sky TV. "Personally, I'm still under contract and am happy to be playing at Napoli."
