ROME (AP) — Rodrigo De Paul is almost single-handedly keeping Udinese out of the relegation zone.
Of Udinese's 10 goals this season, De Paul has been involved in eight of them, with five scored and three assisted.
He assisted on one and scored the equalizer in a 2-2 draw at Genoa in Serie A on Sunday.
The 24-year-old winger, who this month made his first appearance for Argentina's national team, provided the cross for Kevin Lasagna's header that made it 1-1 then scored from the edge of the area with a precise shot five minutes later.
Romulo and Cristian Romero scored for Genoa, which ended with 10 men following a red card to Romero.
Udinese has nine points from 10 matches and is three points above the drop zone.
Genoa is ninth.
Last-place Chievo Verona remained with -1 point following a 2-1 loss at Cagliari.
Chievo was deducted three points last month for false accounting. It has gained two points from draws.
The Verona squad has lost both its matches since former Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura was hired to replace Lorenzo D'Anna.
Cagliari's Leonardo Pavoletti scored one goal and set up another for Lucas Castro before Mariusz Stepinski pulled one back for Chievo.
Pavoletti's goal gave him 19 headed goals for his Serie A career, matching Inter's Mauro Icardi for best among active players.
Promoted Frosinone earned its first win of the season with a 3-0 victory at Spal.
Raman Chibsah, Camillo Ciano and Andrea Pinamonti scored against a Spal side that was coming off a shock 2-0 win at Roma.
Sassuolo twice came back from a goal down to draw 2-2 with Bologna in an Emilian derby.
Former AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng scored a decisive penalty five minutes from the end, giving him four goals in eight matches since returning to Serie A.
Rodrigo Palacio had put Bologna ahead two minutes in then Marlon Santos equalized for Sassuolo in the 17th.
Ibrahim Mbaye again put Bologna in front with a fortunate goal after the break before Stefano Sensi earned the penalty that Boateng converted.
Sassuolo, which has lost only once in five home matches, is seventh.
Bologna, which is coached by former Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi, is 16th.
