Serie A - 20ª Giornata

Is Pato the shot in the arm that Milan needed in order to breathe new life into its season? In today’s match against Genoa, the eighteen year old Brazilian scored two goals, the only two goals of the match. Pato’s first goal came off of a header in the 68th minute and he added the insurance goal in the 82nd minute.

Today’s victory moved Milan into seventh place on the table, and only 1 point behind Sampdoria, and only 6 points behind Udinese who managed to hold Inter Milan to a nil-nil draw, this was the first time in 9 games that Inter has failed to win.

Inter’s draw combined with Roma’s 1 goal victory over Palermo yesterday puts Roma only 5 points behind first place Inter. Meanwhile, Juventus’s 3-1 win over Livorno puts the Old Lady only 5 points behind Roma. Unlike last season, there is a real race for the top spots in Serie A.
