Losing speed in recent weeks in Serie A, AC Milan moved forward this Wednesday by dominating Genoa (0-3), not without an opening score signed Ibrahimovic. Napoli is nonetheless the leader.
With a point gleaned in three days, the Rossoneri have clearly marked time in the league lately. This Wednesday on the lawn of a Genoa who is struggling to win this season, the Milanese recovered well, victorious 0-3 thanks to a goal from Ibrahimovic (10e) and a double from Messias (45e+2, 61e).
His sixth achievement in Serie A – in nine matches played – the Swedish monument scored on a free kick, with a shot as subtle as it was powerful. The ideal start for a Lombard team which thus reunites with its great Neapolitan rival, held in check at the same time.
On the ground of an unpredictable formation of Sassuolo, the Napoli however led 0-2, strong banderillas planted by Ruiz (51e) and Mertens (60e). But the Neroverdi came back to the score by Scamacca (72e) and Ferrari (89e). Before scoring a third goal in added time… finally invalidated after resorting to VAR.
Naples therefore keeps the controls for a point in front of AC Milan. Inter, earlier faller from La Spezia (2-0), completing the podium two lengths from the top.
