Scamacca’s own goal helps AC Milan to 2-1 win over Genoa

MILAN — 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.
