							Di Canio 29 (Pen)

Attendance : 25,000
Red Card : Antonioli 27
Assist : Inzaghi (won pen)

Pazzini 2							Giacomazzi 9
Albertini 52						Bojinov 76

Three of the best players in CM0304 played in this match, 2 of them scored.
Pazzini chested down a superb cross from Albertini before volleying past
Sicignano. Taibi went walkabout on a cross allowing Giacomazzi to head Lecce
level. Albertini restored Atalanta's lead when he drilled Bernardini's lay off
from a free kick through the wall. Pazzini should have scored a second but after
Sicignano charged down his shot he blasted the ball against a defender on the
line. The Atalanta defence screwed up offside allowing Bojinov to equalise.
Bernardini hammered a shot against the bar and Pazzini wasted a clear run on
goal. The other CM0304 star, Montolivo had a quiet game. He goes on to become
the best player the World has ever seen, at least he did in my game. 

Attendance : 13,000
Assists : Albertini, Della Bona, Bernardini (fk), Pinardi

							Nedved 35
							Trezeguet 38
							Ibrahimovic 69

Nedved scored a rare headed goal from Del Piero's corner and helped make the second
three minutes later after Brescia again failed to clear, he passed out wide to the
unmarked Zebina and his centre was tapped in first time by Trezeguet. Ibrahimovic
replaced Trezeguet and Olivera, who has been at the club for 3 years and only played
twice, came on for Del Piero. Both combined for the third. Olivera hit a first time pass
into Ibrahimovic who, with his back to goal, turned and was forced wide by two
defenders before he stopped suddenly, changed direction, ran through the defenders
and hit a weak shot which Castelazzi let roll under his body.

Attendance : 20,000
Assists : Del Piero (ck), Zebina, Olivera

Esposito 19

Zola took 19 minutes to make his mark on his Serie A return, his perfectly weighted
pass was slammed home by Esposito. Pagliuca had an excellent match, saving twice
from Abeijon then from Esposito. Bologna won an extremely soft penalty but Giunti
shot wide of the post.

Montella 53

Ujfalusi sold team-mate Viali short on a back pass, as Totti ran past Viali
hauled him down, red card. Cassano took a dive outside the box and failed to win
a free kick. Chiellini called him a diving twat, which according to Babel fish
is 'Twat di diving' in Italian, Cassano pushed him in the face, red card.
Portillo almost marked his Serie A debut with a goal, his shot was deflected
wide by Mexes. Montella, on as a second half substitute for Candela, latched
onto De Rossi's terrific long ball and lobbed over Lupatelli. Totti was booked
for diving, hey it beats spitting at players.

Semioli 28						Stankovic 15
Pellissier 37						Adriano 48

Stankovic capitalised on Cesar's hospital pass to give Mancini the perfect
start. Chievo equalised shortly after Vieri blew a chance to increase Inter's
lead. Inter's defence then gifted Chievo two goals, Semioli helped Lanna's deep
cross into the net with his arm and Veron of all people had to track back
because his defenders were nowhere, he failed to spot the run of Pellissier and
the Frenchman calmly poked the ball past Toldo. Adriano levelled early in the
second half, ripping Vieri's lay-off into the bottom corner.

Attendance : 30,000
Assists : n/a, Lanna, Franceschini, Vieri

Seedorf 3, 47						Lucarelli 9 (Pen), 67 (fk)

Seedorf set the champions on their way to what should have been a comfortable
victory when he latched onto a sloppy clearance and broke two tackles in the box
before finding the bottom corner. Shevchenko just failed to connect with crosses
by Tomasson and Cafu. Milan were caught out by a ball over the top, as Vigiani
tried to go past Dida, the 'keeper clipped his leg, dive and despite Stam covering,
red card. Lucarelli beat Abbiati with ease. Both teams struck the woodwork. Amelia
made a brilliant save from Rui Costa late in the half.

Seedorf restored Milan's lead after combining with Kaka' and finishing brilliantly.
The goal inspired the minnows and Abbiati was forced into making several
excellent saves before doing a David James on Lucarelli's free kick. Lucarelli then
had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside and Amelia continued to drop everything
but Milan couldn't capitalise.

Assists : n/a, Vigiani (won pen), Kaka', Lucarelli (won fk)
Red Cards : Dida 7 (Milan), Balleri 95 (Livorno)
