Franceschini hit a great first time pass into the box and Pellissier got in front
of his marker and shot into the corner.

COMO 0-2 INTER
Vieri should have been sent off for stamping on Brevi. He's up for trial by
television and could face a ban. Brunner punched out Morfeo's cross but
Conceicao turned the ball back into the box and Vieri fired Inter in front.
Recoba scored a brilliant second goal, he stepped inside Belari then
curled a left foot shot into the top left corner.

MODENA 0-1 JUVENTUS
Del Piero 74
An embarassing performance from the reigning champions. Juve were
completly outplayed and were it not for Buffon and some piss poor
finishing they chould have left the field on the end of a real beating.
Del Piero, on as a substitute for the eternally hopeless Marcelo Salas,
stole the points when he heading in Nevded's frree kick.

ROMA 2-2 PERUGIA
Panucci 67 Ze Maria 39 (Pen)
Totti 71 Miccoli 42
Miccoli ran onto a through pass and as ran straight into Antonioli, red card
and penalty. Ridiculous decision. Ze Maria converted from the spot and a
hospital pass from Lima gave Miccoli a clear run on goal, 0-2. Delvecchio
flicked on a corner, the ball hit Aldair, yes he's still alive, and Panucci
scrambled over the line. Predictably ex-Milan 'keeper Rossi protested as
he always did whenever beaten. Old habits die hard. Totti blasted a left
foot volley into the net after Panucci helped on a free kick.
Attendance : 55,000
Red Card : Antonioli 38 (Roma)
Assists : Miccoli (won pen), Aldair, Panucci
