City rivals AC Milan's season slumped to a new low too as they had two players sent off and lost 2-1 at Udinese while the bizarre postponement of the Cagliari-AS Roma match further damaged Serie A's fading credibility.

Roberto Di Natale scored the winner for Udinese with a 68th minute penalty, while the visitors had Cristian Zapata and second-half substitute Kevin-Prince Boateng dismissed in their third defeat in four Serie A games.

Lazio slumped to a shock defeat 1-0 defeat at home to Genoa as they dominated the game, missed a hatful of chances and were caught by a breakaway goal scored by Marco Boriello in the 79th minute.

Palermo's latest coach Gian Piero Gasperini got off to a losing start as his side lost 1-0 at Atalanta and promoted Pescara picked up their first point with a 1-1 draw at Bologna.

Gasperini's hopes of lasting longer than his predecessors at Palermo were dented when Cristian Raimondi's 88th minute goal sent them to a 1-0 defeat at Atalanta, leaving the Sicilians with one point.

Gasperini replaced Giuseppe Sannino, fired after only three games by Palermo's volatile president Maurizio Zamparini, who has employed an average of two coaches a season at the club over the last decade.
