Serie A: Napoli leapfrogs AC Milan into second place.

Napoli leapfrogged AC Milan into second place in Serie A after beating its title rival 1-0 in a mediocre match at San Siro on Sunday.

Eljif Elmas scored an early goal and Milan had an equalizer controversially disallowed right at the death. Franck Kessie’s goal was ruled out on video review as Olivier Giroud was in an offside position that was judged to be interfering with play, despite the Rossoneri forward being prone on the ground, underneath a Napoli defender.

“In the end they will say that they applied the rules in the right way … but I say: ‘How can a player who is on the ground interfere with the defense?” Milan coach Stefano Pioli said. “We’re disappointed, we’re disappointed to have lost this match. Now we’ll lick our wounds and then we’ll go again.”
