Milan hosted Genoa on Wednesday night and they were looking to gain revenge for the 2-0 defeat they suffered in their second game of the season, a result that has helped Genoa challenge for a top-four finish.
The Rossoneri were looking for three points at home, as they attempted to cut their six-point deficit with Inter, but they had to settle for a single point after a 1-1 draw.
A stunning David Beckham free-kick was cancelled out by a Diego Milito strike in the last few minutes of the game.
The England midfielder asked to be replaced in the 71st minute of the game, but he is still confident of being fit to face Lazio on Sunday.
Beckham revealed, “It's the adductor. We'll have to see how it is tomorrow. I felt it before the game and then again just before half-time. I got to 20 minutes in in the second half and I felt it a little bit more. It's painful, but hopefully I will be fit for the game at the weekend.”
By dropping two points against Genoa, Milan lost ground on league leaders and city rivals Inter Milan, whom they now trail by eight points, but Beckham insists that the Scudetto race is not over yet.
“I enjoyed the game, but I am disappointed that we did not win. With Juventus losing, the points would have been really good tonight, but it's not over yet. When I was in Manchester, we were 15 points behind but we came back and won the championship, so anything is possible. We have got to start winning games and put pressure on Inter and Juventus. There are still some very big games coming up,” said the Englishman.
