Di Vaio 20, 35							Chivu 24
								Zebina 87

Di Vaio came on for Del Piero and promptly scored two goals. A terrible clearance by Zebina
fell to Trezeguet, Pelizzoli saved brilliantly from his header but Di Vaio volleyed in the rebound.
Chivu equalised with a free kick. Nedved ran into Samuel to win himself a free kick and Di Vaio
deflected his shot past Pelizzoli. Roma dominated the rest of the match with Totti going close
twice. Zebina made up for his earlier mistake with the equaliser. Juve cleared a free kick, Zebina
took one touch to control the ball then blasted a shot past Buffon, it may have took a deflection.
Totti could have wrapped up 3 points late on Buffon was quick off his line to smother an
attempted lob.

Brilliant match.

Di Biagio 9							Nakamura 23 (Pen), 73
Caracciolo 51							Bonazzoli 39
Filippini 52							Sottil 62
Petruzzi 87

The Baggio's (sort of) combined for the first goal in this mental match. Bobby Baggio's corner was
met by Di Biagio. Nakamura equalised from the spot after Di Michele threw himself over Castellazzi.
The Brescia defence stood waiting for a non existent offside flag after Di Michele's shot deflected
off one of them, Bonazzoli scored. Caracciolo flung a boot at Schopp's knockdown, 2-2. Filippini
headed into an empty net after Lejsal missed Baggio's cross, 3-2. Sottil almost tore a hole in
the net when he rammed in from close range. Nakamura's brilliant free kick made it 3-4. Baggio
then missed a penalty before Petruzzi volleyed in from a corner.

Assists : Baggio (ck), Di Michele, Schopp, Baggio, Bonazzoli, ?, Matuzalem


Trust Inter to be involved in the only goal-less draw of the season so far. Martins missed an
absolute sitter and Materazzi twice went close with free kicks. Bazzani had Samp's best chance
but headed straight at Toldo. Van der Meyde looked lively.

Inzaghi S 79							Adriano 63

Bresciano scored inside a minute, volleying in Nakata's cross. Stam levelled on the half hour mark,
with a free kick! Stankovic rolled the ball to him and hit a low shot through a gap in the wall.
Adriano restored Parma's lead with a superb individual goal. With his back to goal he turned,
dribbled past three players and fired into the corner. After some wayward finishing by both sides
Inzaghi headed in a corner. Bresciano tried his luck from distance and his shot took a deflection
off Couto and flew into the net.

LECCE					1-2			CHIEVO
Chevanton 59							Lanna 52
								Cossato 71

A bizarre goal from defender Lanna gave Chievo the lead. His deep cross curled and dipped
into the net making Lecce 'keeper Amelia, who actually had a good game, look like an idiot.
Lecce equalised soon after when Chevanton fired through a ruck of players. As the Lecce
defence appealing in vain for an offside flag Marrone's center was turned in by Cossato.
D'Anna was sent off for nothing.

Vryzas 30							Gattuso 19

After Shevchenko and Inzaghi missed chances Gattuso ran onto a pass, skipped a tackle and
hit a low shot into the corner. Vryzas equalised with a superb diving header. Am amazing save
denied Shevchenko what seemed a certain goal and he hit the outside of a post in the second
half. Inzaghi went off with an injury after Kalac almost took his head off when challenging
for a cross. Ambrosini was harshly sent off for a non foul on Gatti.
