MILAN 2 (Pazzini 22, Balotelli 60)

Pazzini, who was hobbling from an earlier injury, smashed a loose ball in off the underside of the crossbar to give Milan the lead. Genoa should have been awarded a penalty for a Niang handball.

Bovo was booked for kicking Constant who anrgily reacted and had to be restrained by this team-mates, he was booked for his reaction but continued badgering Bovo and the referee to earn himself a second yellow. Idiot.
