Udinese and Genoa draw 0-0 as Di Natale sits out


ROME (AP) -Udinese and Genoa played to a lackluster 0-0 draw in the Serie A lunchtime fixture Sunday.

Udinese manager left top scorer Antonio Di Natale out of his squad following a disagreement during training and both sides rarely threatened.

Brazilian defender Danilo and forward Diego Fabbrini had the only chances for Udinese, while Marco Borriello missed for Genoa.

Genoa is eight points behind Italian league leader Juventus, while Udinese is 10 points back.

Juventus beat Roma and old rival Zdenek Zeman 4-1 on Saturday.

Later, Napoli can rejoin Juventus at the top with a win at Sampdoria, and Inter Milan seeks its first home win of the season against in-form Fiorentina, which held Juve scoreless midweek.
