African star ends Milan's winless run

Serie A

Genoa 1-2 AC Milan

Ten-man AC Milan ended their three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over ten-man Genoa at Stadio Communale Luigi Ferraris.

Lasse Schone broke the deadlock for the hosts four minutes before the break before Theo Hernandez levelled matters for Rossoneri six minute after the break.

The game turned on its head 11 minutes inside the second stanza after Genoa were reduced to ten men and conceded a penalty after Davide Biraschi handled a ball inside the area, which eventually led to a red card after a review from the Video Assistant Referee.

Franck Kessie gave the visitors a 2-1 lead from the resultant spot-kick, while there was further drama with 11 minutes remaining as Rossoneri were also reduced to ten men after Davide Calabria received his second yellow card.

Genoa got a penalty of their own in second-half stoppage time but goalkeeper Pepe Reina denied Schone from the spot-kick to preserve the three points for Milan.

SPAL 1-0 Parma

SPAL secured their second victory of the campaign after edging Parma 1-0 on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Paolo Mazza.

Andrea Petagna broke the deadlock for SPAL in the 31st minute, while the hosts were reduced to ten men with 20 minutes remaining after Gabriel Strefezza received a second yellow card for simulation.

Hellas Verona 2-0 Sampdoria

Hellas Verona piled more misery on Sampdoria, who slipped down to the bottom of the table after a 2-0 defeat on Saturday evening.

Marash Kumbulla opened the scoring for Verona in the ninth minute and the hosts wrapped up the three points nine minutes before time thanks to an own goal by Nicola Murru.
