Messias shines again and leads Milan to victory over Genoa

ROME: Junior Messi scored his first double with AC Milan to give them a 3-0 win over Genoa under Andriy Shevchenko on Wednesday and narrow the gap with Serie A leaders Naples to one point. Milan entered in field to compensate for the defeats suffered in the last two league games against Fiorentina and Sassuolo, and he went straight away in advantage at the Luigi Ferraris stadium when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from a free-kick after ten minutes. Brazilian winger Messias, who scored the only winning goal against Atletico Madrid in his first appearance in Champions League last week, he made his first training as a starter and celebrated by scoring once in half. Shevchenko, who as a player won the Champions League and the Italian Championship with Milan, is still looking for his first victory with Genoa after three games with the team, where he is 18th with ten points. In Reggio Emilia Sassuolo recovered two goals from a disadvantage by drawing 2-2 with Napoli, which rises to 36 points, one point ahead of Milan, second. (Reuters)
