Genoa 1-2 Atalanta

Atalanta climbed to eighth in the table after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Genoa in Tuesday night's rearranged Serie A match.
Following snow in northern Italy, the game was put back by 24 hours, with the hosts looking to build on last week's win at Verona and pull further away from the relegation zone.
Genoa took an early lead through Andrea Bertolacci's low left-foot strike after just four minutes and Diego Laxalt then saw his effort shave the woodwork.
Goalkeeper Mattia Perin produced a fine save from a header by Atalanta defender Rafael Toloi following a free-kick before Josip Ilicic equalised on the stroke of half-time.
At the start of the second half, Atalanta keeper Etrit Berisha denied Goran Pandev following a goalmouth scramble.
On 52 minutes, veteran Atalanta defender Andrea Masiello headed in at the far post after a free-kick had been flicked through the Genoa penalty area.
