MILAN — Keisuke Honda scored one goal and helped set up another as AC Milan extended its unbeaten streak to eight matches with a 2-1 win over Genoa in Serie A on Sunday.
Milan moved within two points of fifth-place Inter Milan, which was visiting Fiorentina later.
A cross from Honda led to Carlos Bacca's opener five minutes in at the San Siro. The Japan international then scored midway through the second half with a long, bouncing shot from 25 meters (yards) that appeared to surprise goalkeeper Mattia Perin.
It was Honda's first league goal of the season, while Bacca has a team-high 13 goals.
Midfielder Riccardo Montolivo nearly made it 3-0 with a similarly long effort that bounced off the post.
Alessio Cerci pulled one back for Genoa in added time.
