MILAN (AP) – With Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended, an own goal from highly touted Genoa striker Gianluca Scamacca was the winner for AC Milan in a 2-1 victory Sunday.
Milan’s first home win in more than two months made sure the Rossoneri will hold onto second place in Serie A.
Scamacca turned away in apparent fear when a corner kick sailed over the head of Mario Mandzukic and the ball ricocheted off his back and into his own goal.
Ante Rebic had put Milan ahead early with a long-range half volley.
Mattia Destro then equalized for Genoa with a header following poor defending from Fikayo Tomori.
