Serie A leader Milan and runner-up Inter faltered, having drawn the first 1-1 with Udinese, and the second came out of their game against hosts Genoa in a scoreless draw on Friday in the opening 27th round.
Handball hit Milan hard
In the first game, Milan opened the scoring through Rafael Leao (29), but the guests snatched the equalizer in the second half (66) through Lyenoma Udogie probably with the help of his hand, but was not canceled after the appeal to the Video Assistant Referee “VAR”.
Milan coach Stefano Pioli commented after the match: “we can understand that the referee did not see the shot, there was a density of players, but not to see it in the VAR, it seems to be difficult”.
Four games without a win for Inter
Minutes after the final whistle at the San Siro, Inter had the opportunity to capitalize again on their rivals ‘ stumbles but failed to win in the league for the fourth consecutive game.
Inter were top of the Italian league before going through a series of negative results since losing the derby to Milan 1-2 in the twenty-fourth stage, where they drew with other title rivals Napoli 1-1 and then lost to Sassuolo.
