EMPOLI 1-1 REGGINA
Di Natale 41 Mozart 29
Two outstanding goals in this match. Mozart scored the first with a violent free kick.
Di Natale worked a short corner with Grella then from an improbable angle
curled the ball into the top corner of the net. Nothing happened in the second half.

LECCE 3-1 ANCONA
Siviglia 34 Ganz 69 (Pen)
Shortly after Ancona had an own goal disallowed (how does that work?) Siviglia
headed Lecce in front. Hubner's appalling playacting was rewarded with a penalty
which Ganz converted. Ledesma found Vucinic with a superb pass and he calmly
held off the challenge of a defender before knocking the ball past Scarpi. Cassetti
made sure of the points with another goal 5 minutes later.
Attendance : 13,780
Assists : Chevanton (fk), Hubner (won pen), Ledesma
MODENA 0-1 UDINESE
Pizarro 82 (Pen)
Alberto was sent off for kicking Kamara in the ribs. Pizarro took a dive in the box
then converted the resulting penalty.
Attendance : 14,900
Assist : Pizarro (won pen)
Red Card : Alberto 28 (Udinese)
PARMA 3-0 PERUGIA
Adriano 50 (Pen)
Bresciano's first goal for Parma was absolutely sensational. Morfeo hit a peach of a
pass into the box, Bresciano pulled the ball away from Di Loreto with his left foot
and just as Aliou slid in whipped a right foot shot past Kalac. Aliou handled in the
box and Adriano thumped the ball into the net. Gilardino, on as a sub for Morfeo,
converted a pass from Adriano to make it 3-0.
I'm not sure what Adriano and Frey were doing on Miss Italia 2003, maybe they
get to bang the winner.
Attendance : 13,500
Assists : Morfeo, Adriano
ROMA 5-0 BRESCIA
Totti 23, 58
Carew 89 (Pen)
Totti dropped a beautiful pass into Cassano, he centred and Montella lashed the ball
first time into the net. Chivu was swamped by his team-mates after scoring a
superb left footed free kick. Totti scored his first after a quick break through the
middle and added a fourth with a typically extravagant lob from the edge of the box.
Carew drilled home a late penalty won by Henry Mancini.
Attendance : 50,000
Assists : Cassano, Totti (won fk), Cassano, Mancini, Mancini (won pen)
SIENA 0-1 INTER
Cufre 29 (og)
Chiesa missed a great early chance to score. Rossi scrambled away a spectacular
volley by Luciano. Cufre, on loan from Roma because he is RUBBISH, deflected
Materazzi's header into his own net. Taddei forced a good save from Toldo
and Delli Carri headed against the crossbar late in the second half.
Attendance : 12,000
CHIEVO 1-2 JUVENTUS
D'Anna 22 (Pen) Legrottaglie 25
Chievo started well with Amauri and Santana going close. A theatrical dive by
Sculli won Chievo a penalty. D'Anna smashed the ball into the corner but Juve
were level minutes later when Chievo old boy Legrottaglie headed Camoranesi's
free kick past Marchegiani. Sculli blew a great chance to restore Chievo's lead.
Zambrotta floated a cross into the box, Trezeguet had already pulled away from his
marker at the back post, controlled the ball on his chest then shot into the top
corner. Nedved volleyed against the post. Pinilla, who is barely 19 (now there's a
great movie) blew a one vs one against Buffon and Cossato was equally wasteful
as Chievo desperately poured forward in search of an equaliser. Davids was booked
shortly after coming on as a sub for fouling Pellisier.
Assists : Sculli (won pen), Camoranesi (fk), Zambrotta

SAMPDORIA 1-2 LAZIO
Bazzani 73 S Inzaghi 8
Albertini 64 (Pen)
Inzaghi volleyed Lazio into an early lead after Stankovic helped on a Mihajlovic free kick.
It didn't take notorious cheaters Samp long to win their first penalty in Serie A, Bazzani
threw himself at the mercy of the ref and he duly obliged - fortunately Doni's weak penalty
was easily saved by Peruzzi. Albertini made no mistake at the other end when he blasted
his penalty past Antonioli. A stunning header by Bazzani gave Samp hope but Lazio
comfortably held out.
Attendance : 35,000
Assists : Stankovic, Corradi (won pen), Palombo
MILAN 2-1 BOLOGNA
Shevchenko 10 Nervo 32
Shevchenko scored his third league goal of the season from Pirlo's free kick.
Milan were cruising until Nervo met Seedorf's sloppy clearance with a
fierce right foot volley. The second half was dire until Ancelotti took off the abysmal
Rui Costa and Seedorf and replaced them with Cafu and Tomasson. With his back to
goal Inzaghi controlled a long pass from Cafu and despite being wrestled by Zaccardo
managed to turn and fire past Pagliuca. An excellent piece of finishing just like the
goal he scored against Juve last season.
Attendance : 57,835
Assists : Pirlo (fk), Cafu
