ROME (AP) -- Mario Balotelli set a personal record with his 14th goal of the Serie A season and also set up another score as AC Milan beat visiting Livorno 3-0 Saturday for its fifth straight win.

Still, Milan remained five points behind city rival Inter Milan in the race for fifth place and the final Europa League berth, after Inter beat 10-man Parma 2-0.

In the 43rd minute at the San Siro, Balotelli scored with a textbook header from the center of the area following a cross from Kevin Constant. Balotelli's previous best seasonal output was 13 goals.

Morocco midfielder Adel Taarabt doubled Milan's lead in the 51st and substitute Giampaolo Pazzini added another in the 84th after taking a pass from Balotelli.

Elsewhere, third-placed Napoli was held 1-1 at Udinese.
