Elmas scores winner, Napoli wins Milan away******
ROME, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- Eljif Elmas' goal in the opening minutes proved decisive, as Napoli ended the winless run in Serie A on Sunday by edging AC Milan 1-0 at San Siro.。
It was a head-to-head for the second place, as AC Milan ranked second before Sunday's game, three points ahead of fourth-placed Napoli.。
The away side took a dream start just four minutes into the game when Piotr Zielinski's corner set up Elmas to turn in a header.。
Milan responded by creating a series of chances as Zlatan Ibrahimovic's header was inches wide while Alessandro Florenzi's attempt from distance whistled wide too.。
The Rossoneri continued its press after the break but was toothless to find the back of the net.。
In a desperate bid to avoid a home defeat, Milan poured forward in the closing stage, and it worked wonderfully in the dying minutes when Franck Kessie drilled home from a close range.。
However, the goal was disallowed as the referee judged Olivier Giroud was in an active offside position after checking the VAR.。
The win allowed Napoli to climb to second place with 39 points, leading Milan by virtue of goal difference.。
Elsewhere, Sassuolo squandered a 2-0 lead over Fiorentina, as the Viola fought back for 2-2 on home turf.。

Real Madrid win El Clasico, Atletico and Real Sociedad share spoils in thriller******
MADRID, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid won El Clasico 2-1 away to FC Barcelona in a game that just about highlighted the current situation of the two teams.
Although Real Madrid were not brilliant in the Camp Nou, it was enough for them to keep things tight in defense and exploit their pace on the break to win the game.
David Alaba put them ahead in the 32nd minute, finishing a move he started with a powerful left-foot shot and Lucas Vazquez netted their second in injury-time after another counter-attack.
Barca didn't force a difficult save from Real Madrid keeper Thibaut Courtois all game and it wasn't until the 97th minute that Sergio Aguero netted a consolation goal, seconds before the final whistle.
Real Sociedad remain top of the table, but will be frustrated after seeing Atletico Madrid fight back from 2-0 down to force a 2-2 draw in a match that was much more entertaining than El Clasico.
The Basque side produced an excellent first 50 minutes in Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium and led through goals from Alexander Sorloth and Alexander Isak.
Luis Suarez's header pulled a goal back for Atletico in the 61st minute and the Uruguayan then netted a penalty with 13 minutes left to play. His side pressed for a winning goal, but Real Sociedad held on for a point.
Sevilla remain third after an exciting 5-3 win against Levante, who are still searching for their first victory of the campaign.
Oliver Torres' stunning volley and another goal from Rafa Mir put Sevilla 2-0 ahead after 24 minutes, before Jose Luis Morales' first goal of the afternoon brought Levante back into the game.
Diego Carlos added a third for Sevilla in the 38th minute and Munir looked to have ensured the win when he netted his side's fourth from outside the box five minutes into the second half, but Morales' second and a goal from Gonzalo Melero made it 4-3 before Fernando added Sevilla's fifth with 25 minutes still to play.
Real Betis saw how Rayo Vallecano fought back from 2-0 down after conceding goals to Alex Moreno and Juanmi with goals of their own from Randy Nketa and Alvaro, before Willian Jose's 75th minute penalty gave Betis all three points in an entertaining match.
Iker Muniain's penalty helped Athletic Bilbao inflict Villarreal's first away defeat of the season as they claimed a 2-1 win in the San Mames Stadium.
Raul Garcia put Athletic ahead from Inaki Williams' cross in the 14th minute, but Francis Coquelin's deflected effort leveled the scores in the 32nd minute.
Man of the match Muniain won the game from the penalty spot in the 77th minute after Unai Vencedor had been fouled by Alberto Moreno.
Valencia salvaged a point as they came back from 2-0 down at home to Real Mallorca with two injury-time goals.
Angel Rodriguez and Mouchtar Diakhaby's own goal had given Mallorca a 2-0 lead, but former Valencia player Kangin Lee had a rush of blood 10 minutes into the second half and left his side with 10 men.
Goncalo Guedes pulled a goal back with a long-range shot in the 92nd minute, and Jose Luis Gaya's close-range finish earned Valencia a point in the 98th minute.
Two goals from striker Joselu gave Alaves their first away win of the season and just their second victory of the entire campaign, as Javi Calleja's side won 2-0 away to Cadiz.
Elche and Espanyol shared four goals with Manu Morlanes and Raul de Tomas scoring for Espanyol on 51 and 52 minutes to cancel out Lucas Boye's first-half opener for Elche, who took a point with Dario Bernadetto's 84th minute equalizer.
On Friday, Osasuna and Granada drew 1-1, with Chimy Avila putting Osasuna ahead on the stroke of half-time and Angel Moreno scoring a last minute goal to salvage a point for the visitors.
Osasuna ended with 10 men after left-back Jose Angel 'Cote' was sent off with 16 minutes left to play. Enditem
Recovery of China's industrial economy on track: ministry******
BEIJING, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- The recovery of China's industrial economy is on track with strong resilience and momentum, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said Tuesday.
Citing the industrial output data published on Monday, Luo Junjie, a spokesperson for the ministry, said it showed that the growth rate of major economic indicators has stayed within a reasonable range.
The country's value-added industrial output went up 11.8 percent year on year in the first three quarters of this year, putting the average Jan.-Sept. growth for the past two years at 6.4 percent.
The output of the high-tech manufacturing sector jumped 20.1 percent year on year in the first nine months, faster than the growth pace of the overall industrial output.
The strong performance resulted from multiple measures adopted to help and benefit companies, Luo said, adding that market entities' profitability has improved and new drivers of economic growth have emerged.
The spokesperson, however, noted that the external environment is still complicated and unstable, with rising commodity prices and energy crunch putting more pressure on the economy.
The country will strive to support small and medium-sized enterprises, ensure the stability of industrial and supply chains, and sustain the positive trend of the economy, Luo said. Enditem
