Napoli drew 2-2 away to Sassuolo and Milan beat genoa 3-0 on Wednesday in the 15th round of Serie A.
At the Luigi Ferraris stadium against his former star Ukrainian Andrei Shevchenko, who recently became Genoa’s coach, Milan regained their balance and quickly won out of their bases with three beautiful goals for veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic from a free-kick (10) and young Brazilian Messias Junior with a tricky header from above the goalkeeper (45) then with a tight ground shot after a pass from Spain’s Ibrahim Diaz (61), in a meeting during which Rossoneri lost the efforts of Danish Simon Kjaer in the first seconds due to a knee injury.
Napoli remained in the lead, but the difference narrowed to a point after he drew with Sassuolo by two goals scored by Spain’s Fabian Ruiz in the 51st minute with a long shot after a pass from Poland’s Piotr Zielenski, who was also behind the second goal scored by Belgian Dries Mertens (59). But the landowner returned to the meeting in which Napoli lost the efforts of Lorenzo Insigne and then Ruiz due to injury.
Reducing the difference, Gianluca Scamaca scored after a cross from Greek Kyriakopoulos (71), then equalized in the 89th minute with Jean-Marco Ferrari’s header after a free-kick by Domenico Berardi.
Inter deserved to beat Spezia 2-0 as they were the perfectly the better side but finished the first half ahead with a single goal scored by Roberto Galliardini in the 36th minute after a pass from Argentine Lautaro Martinez. The home side were very close to adding a second goal early in the second half, but the Argentine Joaquin Correa was lucky after his attempt bounced off the crossbar (52), but Niratsori quickly replaced this opportunity with a penalty kick by Martinez after a touch of hand inside the forbidden zone of Poland’s Jakub Kiwior (58).
