Kaka scored early, and Mario Balotelli missed a penalty as AC Milan drew 1-1 at home to Genoa on Saturday.
Alberto Gilardino converted a penalty for Genoa, who had a man sent off late in the first half.
Kaka put Milan ahead in the fourth minute, pulling down Nigel De Jong's long ball with a soft touch in the Genoa box before finishing low past Mattia Perin.
Gilardino equalised four minutes later from the penalty spot. It was Genoa's only shot on target.
Balotelli, whose penalty record had previously been exceptionally strong, saw his spot-kick saved by Perin. Genoa's Thomas Manfredini conceded the penalty with a foul on Balotelli and was sent off for the infraction.
Milan continued pressing for the victory, peppering Genoa's goal with 35 shots (10 on target), but the Rossoneri could not find a way through Perin.
Following the draw, Milan are 11th with 14 points. Genoa are 13th, four points ahead.
On target: 10-1
