AC Milan are back on the Italian Serie A title trail after they thrashed hosts Genoa when the two teams met in the league on Wednesday night to return to winning ways after a two-match losing run. Milan had seen their quest for a league title suffer immensely due to back-to-back defeats, but they are back on track with the win at Genoa.

The poor run of two straight defeats started against hosts Fiorentina as AC Milan were on the wrong end of a seven-goal game. Fiorentina sealed a 4-3 home win over Milan to hand them their first defeat in the Italian Serie A this season. The Fiorentina defeat preceded the disappointing 3-1 loss at home to Sassuolo with ten men last weekend. All the goals has been scored before Milan skipper Alessio Romagnoli was given a red card in the final twenty (20) minutes.

AC Milan have been able to recover from the successive league defeats to Fiorentina and Sassuolothanks to the away win over struggling Genoa. The Rossoneri ran out 3-0 winners to ensure that they closed the gap on leaders Napoli on the Italian Serie A log. Brazilian attacker Junior Messias was the star of the show after he scored a brace either side of the interval to lead the seven-time European champions to victory.

Swedish football icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic set Milan on their way to a big Serie A victory overGenoa in the tenth minute before Messias doubled the lead in added time of first half. The Brazilian then completed his brace shortly after the hour mark to seal the win.

Milan have now moved within one point of league leaders Napoli who were held to a 2-2 draw at Sassuolo despite taking a two-goal lead as at the 59th minute. Napoli conceded two goals in the final quarter of the game to drop two previous points in the title race.
