The confrontations followed a mini brawl after Pellegrini's sending off. Earlier, Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri was booked for arguing with the officials.

Lazio were angered at not being awarded a first-half penalty, while Milan had a goal disallowed for offside with a quarter of an hour remaining.

The result took third-placed Milan to within a point of Juventus. Juventus play Napoli on Sunday.

Lazio remained in ninth place.
