D’Ambrosio saves Inter, AC Milan crash in Serie A

Danilo D’ Ambrosio scored the only goal as Inter Milan left it late to squeeze past Genoa 1 -0 in Serie A action Sunday and keep in touch with the leaders , as AC Milan fell 2 -0 at Sampdoria.

D’ Ambrosio headed in off a corner with two minutes to go at the San Siro to earn three points for Luciano Spalletti ’ s side, who saw their winning run ended on Tuesday with a 1-1 draw at Bologna .

Inter stay third, two points behind leaders Juventus and Napoli , who both claimed their sixth wins out of six on Saturday against Torino , 4-0 , and SPAL, 3 -2, respectively.

Ciro Immobile scored a double including one from the spot to bring his tally to eight for the season , as injury -hit Lazio stayed fourth with a comfortable 3-0 win at Verona.

Immobile converted a penalty after 24 minutes , scored from the edge of the box before the break and then teed up Adam Marusic for his first Serie A goal on 60 minutes .

City rivals Roma — who have a game in hand — are fifth , after easing past Udinese 3 -1 on Saturday .

Duvan Zapata and Ricky Alvarez scored as Sampdoria condemned big -spending AC Milan to their second defeat of the campaign .

Zapata broke through after a terrible clearance by his cousin and fellow Colombia international Cristian Zapata after 72 minutes with substitute Alvarez getting the second just before the final whistle .

Chinese-owned Milan again showed their difficulty against teams in the top half of the table as they remained sixth after six games with Sampdoria, who have a game in hand, moving seventh just a point behind .

“ We deserved this victory , we fought to the end and must build on this performance, ” said Zapata.

“ It ’ s important for us to keep a clean sheet too, now we need to rest and prepare for another important match. ”

Milan had problems defensively with Cristian Zapata having a forgettable afternoon and Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli performing little better .

Sampdoria dominated from the outset with the visitors having a scare after two minutes when Ivan Strinic’ s cross hit Franck Kessie on the arm and the referee awarded a penalty .

However , the decision was overturned by the video assistant referee.

Chievo won at 10 -man Cagliari thanks to goals in the second half from Roberto Inglese and Mariusz Stepinski as Crotone earned their first win of the season 2 -0 over tailenders Benevento.
