Goals from Alessandro Bastoni at minute 30 and the Slovakian Milan Skriniar (67) decided the victory of the Lombard club, while Ciro Immobile achieved the provisional tie for the defeated (35).

The Milan squad regained the lead in Serie A, which hours earlier had given way after the easy victory of AC Milan (second in the tournament) against Venice 3-0.

Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic at minute two and two goals from Frenchman Theo Hernandez (48 and 59, the second from a penalty) sealed the triumph of the team coached by Stefano Pioli, who is still one point behind Inter.

At the Olympic Games in this capital, Roma, seventh in the championship, fell 3-4 to Juventus in Turin (fifth).

The Romans led 3-1 thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham in the 11th minute, Armenian Henrij Mjitaryan (48) and Lorenzo Pellegrini (53), but could not prevent the visitors’ comeback.

The Turin club, who had cut through the Argentine Paulo Dybala (18), turned the score in the final stretch with three goals in less than 10 minutes, the work of Manuel Locatelli (70), the Swede Dejan Kulusevski (73) and Mattia De Sciglio (77).

The men of the Portuguese José Mourinho could not even take advantage of the expulsion of the Dutch Matthijs de Ligt (81) to save at least one point.

Before, Naples, third in the standings with 43 points, and Atalanta (fourth / 41 units) also won to stay among the top four of the championship.

The Neapolitan squad beat Sampdoria 1-0 (15 of the tournament) with a solitary goal from Andrea Petagna at minute 4), when they no longer had their captain, Lorenzo Insigne, who had to retire injured after half an hour.

It was easier for Atalanta to win 6-2 on their visit to Udinese (14 in Serie A).

The squad led by Gian Piero GasperiniLa arrived with an advantage of three holes at halftime, the work of Mario Pasalic at minute 17, the Colombian Luis Muriel (22) and the Ukrainian Ruslan Malinovskyi (43) and in the second half he scored another three through the South American (76), Danish Joakim Maehle (89) and Matteo Pessina (90 + 2).

For the Udinese team they discounted the Swiss Berat Djimsiti, against his door (59), and the Portuguese Norberto Bercique Gomes “Beto” (88).
