ROMA 3-1

UDINESE

Totti 32 (Pen), 60  

Asamoah 69

Perrotta 39    
     
Despite having missed SIX penalties this season Totti still takes them and he
put one away after Siqueira handled in the box. He made the second with a superb
left wing cross which Perrotta flicked past De Sanctis. Totti continued his incredible
scoring run with his 18th league goal, a glancing header from a De Rossi free kick.
Doni was beaten for the first time in 589 minutes (a new club record) when Asamoah
headed in a corner. D'Agostino, a former Roma youth team product, almost scored
against his former club but his free kick came back off the crossbar.

Rezaei 58

Almiron 50  

Lucarelli 93 (fk)

     
Pasquale was sent off for 'slapping' Busce. Three minutes later Pratali put
Empoli into the lead after Livorno failed to deal with a Vannucchi free kick and
Almiron made it 2-0 from another Vannucchi set piece. Rezaei gave Empoli a taste
of their own medicine when he headed in a Fiore free kick. Lucarelli completed a
remarkable comeback for ten man Livorno with a brilliant 93rd minute free kick
which may have taken a deflection off the Empoli wall.

INTER 2-1

MILAN

Cruz 54  

Ronaldo 40

Ibrahimovic 75  

 

 
Ronaldo collected a pass from Gattuso and ran at Maxwell in slow motion, the
defender backed off and Ronaldo caught Julio Cesar, and everyone else, by
surprise with a precise left foot shot into the bottom corner. Another in a long
line of mistakes from the formerly great Dida gave Inter the equaliser.
Ibrahimovic burned Maldini before hitting a low centre into the box, Dida should
have held the ball with ease but fumbled leaving Cruz with a gaping net, 1-1.
Jankulovski, who has been Milan's best defender by far this season, messed up a
clearance under pressure from Cruz and the striker pulled the ball back for
Ibrahimovic to tap in the winner.

Attendance : 67,500
Assists : Gattuso, n/a, Cruz
 
 
PALERMO 1-1

FIORENTINA

Cavani 71  

Mutu 34

   

 

Under no pressure Guana pulled up with a muscle injury as he was about to take a
pass from a team-mate in midfield. Mutu got possession and Zaccardo stopped
playing waiting for the ref to blow his whistle, he didn't and Mutu run into the
penalty area, worked an opening and shot into a corner. An incensed Guidolin was
sent off for his protests before getting into a heated argument with Fiorentina's
Cesare Prandelli. Zaccardo followed his coach into the dressing rooms for a second
bookable offence. 19 year old Cavani, a 5 million January arrival from Danubio,
saved Palermo's faltering season with a magnificent volley from the right hand edge
of the penalty box. Another goal that will inevitably draw comparisons with
Van Basten's 1988 European Championship final strike.

Foggia 65  

Pandev 46

   

Makinwa 79

     
Tedesco took full advantage of a botched clearance to blast Reggina into the
lead from 20 yards. While three defenders were busy watching Rocchi send in a
cross from the right Manfredini ran between them to volley in the equaliser and
less than a minute later Pandev fired in Jimenez centre to give Lazio a half-time
lead. Foggia, who is on loan from Lazio, scored a fantastic equaliser. Tedesco hung
up a cross and the midfielder made a late run into the box before smashing a right
foot volley in off the crossbar. Makinwa bagged the winner 6 minutes after coming
off the bench. He made a run down the right flank, checked inside Lucarelli as he
approached the six yard box then hammered the ball into the roof of the net sending
Lazio third and Reggina back in the relegation zone.

SAMPDORIA 1-1

CAGLIARI

Palombo 40  

Suazo 63

     
Fortin, under pressure from Bonazzoli, punched out a deep cross straight to
Palombo who, from 25 yards, hit a stunning volley which looped over Fortin's
head before hitting the back of the net. Suazo used his incredible pace to make
up ground on Falcone as the defender tried to intercept a through pass,
Castelazzi rushed off his line and Suazo poked the ball past him from a tight
angle.
