Rome: Mario Balotelli grabbed the headlines again as 10-man AC Milan consolidated their grip on third place in Serie A with a 2-0 win Friday at lowly Genoa which extended their unbeaten league run to 10 games.

Balotelli, who started on the bench, scored the clinching second after his replacement, Giampaolo Pazzini, had notched the opener.

But the result was marred by an ugly second half incident as Guinea full-back Kevin Constant was sent-off for a sustained attempt to confront Genoa's Cesare Bovo 25 minutes from time.
