Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Mon­tella’s young Milan side yes­ter­day de­feated league lead­ers and cham­pi­ons Ju­ven­tus thanks to great goal from young­ster Lo­catelli mid-way through the sec­ond half.

For Ju­ven­tus this was the sec­ond con­sec­u­tivve de­feat at San Siro af­ter suf­fer­ing the same fate against In­ter some weeks ago.

Jueven­tus had a first half Pjanic goal dis­al­lowed by the ref­eree and Milan scored the win­ner on 65 min­utes when 18year old Lo­catelli fired home a beauty.

In the dy­ing sec­onds goal­keeper Don­narumma saved Milan’s vic­tory ef­fect­ing a great save off a Khedira shot.

The vic­tory con­sol­i­dates Milan’s sec­ond place as they now trail the Bian­coneri by two points.

Sam­p­do­ria ended a six-match win­less streak in style by beat­ing ri­val Genoa 2-1 in a Serie A derby yes­ter­day.

Sam­p­do­ria moved up to 13th place while Genoa re­mained ninth.

Luis Muriel put Sam­p­do­ria ahead 12 min­utes in af­ter be­ing set up by Fabio Quagliarella at the edge of the box.

Luca Rigoni equal­ized mid­way through the first half by redi­rect­ing a low cross from Ede­nil­son.

Af­ter both sides hit the cross­bar, Genoa goal­keeper Mat­tia Perin blocked a penalty from Fabio Quagliarella in first-half added time.

It was Perin's sixth save in 24 penal­ties he has faced in Serie A, an im­pres­sive save rate of 25 per­cent.

Shortly af­ter the break, Sam­p­do­ria re­claimed the lead with an own goal from Ar­mando Izzo. Perin punched away a cross from Muriel but the ball bounced in off of Izzo, as Quagliarella ap­plied pres­sure by the near post.
