Series A | Inter came close to the top of the table with a slight victory over Napoli / Milan gave points to Genoa
The second night matches of the twelfth week of Italian Series A were followed by a valuable victory of Inter against Napoli and a draw in the record of Milan. On the second night of the twelfth week of the Italian First Division, six simultaneous matches were played on Wednesday night, the most important of which was Inter against Napoli and Milan were stopped at Genoa.
At the San Siro Stadium, Inter took a 1-0 lead thanks to a single goal from Romulo Lukaku from the penalty spot in the 73rd minute. The penalty was the result of a mistake by Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina on Inter defender Matteo Darmian, which not only resulted in a yellow card but also resulted in the dismissal of team-mate Lorenzo Insigne, who overreacted to the referee.
With this result, Inter gained 27 points in its eighth victory and, in addition to maintaining its position in the second place of the table, reduced its distance with the leading Milan to one point, which was stopped in the simultaneous game at Genoa with a 2-2 draw.
The Milanese fell behind their opponents twice in this game and both of them made up for the lost goals. Matthias Destro scored both of Genoa’s goals in the 47th and 60th minutes, and Milan’s goals came from David Calabria in the 52nd minute and Piraeus Calolo in the 83rd minute. Although Milan stopped, they were able to continue their unbeaten run in Series A.
In the other four games, the results were as follows:
Hellas Verona One – Sampdoria 2
Spetzia 2 – Bologna 2
Fiorentina One – Sassuolo One
Parma Zero – Cagliari Zero
In the last game of the twelfth week of Serie A, tonight at 23:15, Roma will host Torino.
