By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan returned to winning ways at San Siro with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Genoa, stopping their home winless drought at four games.

It appeared as though it was going to be a comfortable afternoon for the Rossoneri when Ante Rebic fired the team into an early lead, but Mattia Destro levelled, scoring his third goal of the season against Milan in the process. An own-goal from Gianluca Scamacca midway through the second half would seal a valuable three points.
