The goal came late in the 77th minute scored by center forward Stephan El Shaarawy. Milan outplayed Genoa, and it was a surprise the game only had one goal in favor of the local team.
Genoa played very physical, committing 17 fouls in the game. Two of the fouls were yellow carded. Milan only received one yellow.
AC Milan sits in 8th place with 10 points. However, Sampdoria who also has the same amount of points has not played their round 9 game. Also, Torino, Parma, and Udinese have 9 points and have not played their round 9 game as well. So, Milan’s position in 8th might only last a day since the rest of the league plays on Sunday.
After the loss, Genoa sits in 11th place with 9 points, but, like Milan, the position might only last a day until the results for Sunday are finalized.
