MILAN, Italy (AFP) — Danilo D'Ambrosio scored late as Inter Milan squeezed past Genoa 1-0 in Serie A action yesterday to keep in touch with the leaders, as AC Milan fell 0-2 at Sampdoria.

D'Ambrosio headed in off a corner with two minutes to go at San Siro to earn three points for Luciano Spalletti's side, who saw their winning run ended on Tuesday with a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Bologna.

Adel Taarabt and Stephane Omeonga were sent off for Genoa in injury time as the club from Liguria remain winless in their opening six games.

Inter stay third, two points behind leaders Juventus and Napoli, who both claimed their sixth wins out of six on Saturday against Torino, 4-0, and SPAL, 3-2, respectively.

Ciro Immobile scored a double, including one from the spot to bring his tally to eight for the Serie A season, as injury-hit Lazio stayed fourth with a comfortable 3-0 win at Verona.

City rivals Roma — who have a game in hand — are fifth, after easing past Udinese 3-1 on Saturday.

Duvan Zapata and Ricky Alvarez scored as Sampdoria condemned big-spending AC Milan to their second defeat of the campaign.

Zapata broke through after a terrible clearance by his cousin and fellow Colombia international Cristian Zapata on 72 minutes, with substitute Alvarez getting the second just before the final whistle.

Chinese-owned Milan — who spent almost 200 million euros in the summer — remain sixth after six games with Sampdoria, who have a game in hand, moving seventh just a point behind.

Atalanta snatched a late 1-1 draw at Fiorentina to move up to ninth after Remo Freuler's goal four minutes into injury time cancelled out Federico Chiesa's superb 12th-minute opener.

Substitute Orji Okwonkwo scored a minute from time to give Bologna maximum points at neighbouring Sassuolo who had captain Francesco Magnanelli sent off for two late bookable offences.

Chievo won at 10-man Cagliari thanks to Roberto Inglese and Mariusz Stepinski's second-half goals as Crotone earned their first win 2-0 over tailenders Benevento.
