Last night was all about the Milan clubs as both AC and Inter were in action. 
 
First up were leaders Milan, who hosted Udinese in a decent game but Milan certainly lacked an edge. Giroud was ineffective up front and his replacement, Rebic, didn’t fare much better. 
 
The sides were evenly matched when a ball to the far post from Tonali found Leao who fired past Udinese keeper Silvestri for 1-0 on 29 minutes. 
 
Beto saw his header saved towards the end of the first half but Udinese made Milan work hard in the second half and on 69 minutes, a clever overhead pass into the box from Pereira found Udogie right in front of Mike Maignan to sneak the ball over the line with his torso. 
 
Udinese came closest to winning it but a draw was a fair result. 
 
The result gave Inter had the chance to sneak into first place on goal difference, as long as they could beat Genoa. 
 
Sirigu in the Genoa goal was tested early on by Calhanoglu, who went close again minutes later. Gudmundsson had Genoa’s best chance in the first half but waited way too long before deciding to shoot, eventually getting crowded out by Inter defenders. 
 
Melegoni brought a great save out of Handanovic at the end of the first half and at 0-0, we waited for the Inter breakthrough. 
 
In the second half, D’Amdbrosio’s header came crashing off the Genoa bar and Genoa were creating chances themselves but they were far less clear cut that Inter’s. A Martinez shot was parried over and that was the last of the action. 
 
Inzaghi couldn’t understand the result, saying “Genoa were not easy to break down, but we got into their penalty area 37 times, had 20 shots, hit the crossbar, there were other chances too that could easily have gone in.” 
 
Napoli again have the chance to go top tomorrow. If they beat Lazio tomorrow night, they will go level on points with Milan but claim the top spot on goal difference. 
 
It seems this year that NOBODY wants to win Serie A!  
A full programme of Serie A games this weekend, here are the fixtures:
