NAPOLI 3 (Hamsik 50, Quagliarella 72, Lavezzi 88)
JUVENTUS 1 (Chiellini 7)

Chiellini headed struggling Juve into the lead after Del Piero flicked on a Camoranesi free kick. Zebina pulled down Quagliarella to concede a penalty but Hamsik clipped the top of crossbar. He made amends by heading in the equaliser three minutes later after Quagliarella mugged Camoranesi and crossed to the back post. The duo combined for Napoli's second, this time Hamsik crossed and Quagliarella stabbed the ball past Manninger and he dived off his line. Campagnaro cut out a Melo through pass and ran down the left flank, drawing the Juve defence to that side and leaving Lavezzi within enough time to recover from a heavy first touch and pick his spot.

ATALANTA 3 (Tiribocchi 53, Valdes 64 Pen, Valdes 72)
CAGLIARI 1 (Conti 91)

Dessena was shown a straight red for tripping Valdes as he ran down the left wing. Cagliari held out until the second half when Marchetti was finally beaten on a rebound after swatting away several first half shots. Canini kicked Tiribocchi in the box to concede a penalty. Valdes converted then added a brilliant second, a 25 yard shot which dipped over Marchetti. Cossu missed a penalty before Conti headed in a last second equaliser.

BARI 2 (Meggiorini 58, Barreto 86)
SAMPDORIA 1 (Cassano 19)

Cassano broke from a pack of defenders to side foot Guberti's cross past Gillet. Gastadello sliced a clearance, half expecting a linesman's flag, and Meggiorini pounced to equalise. Bari hit the woodwork before Baretto headed in a late winner.

Attendance : 28,000
Assists : Guberti, n/a, Alvarez

ROMA 2 (Riise 48, Baptista 82)

De Rossi tried his luck from distance, the ball took a deflection off team-mate Riise wrong footing Viviano in the Bologna goal. Two substitutes combined for Roma's second. Winger Cerci played in Baptista for only his third of the season.

GENOA 2 (Bocchetti 75, Kharja 98 Pen)
PALERMO 2 (Hernandez 34, Pastore 79)

Hernandez forced a mistake from a defender as he chased down a trough ball, Amelia came off his line and the youngster stretched to poke the ball into an empty net. Bocchetti equalised with a bullet header from a Palacio corner but a flick of Pastore's red boot restored the visitors lead. Kjaer was sent off for a second bookable offence and in the dying season of injury time Sirigu tripped Criscito to concede the equalising penalty.

Attendance : 26,000
Red Card : Kjaer 88 (Palermo)
Assists : n/a, Palacio (ck), Balzaretti, Criscito

INTER 3 (Eto'o 36, Eto'o 41, Maicon 61)

First the first 30 minutes it was Livorno who played like champions and Inter who played like a team rooted to the bottom of the table. Two goals in five minutes changed that. A poor offside trap gifted Eto'o possession unmarked in the box but instead of shooting he took on touch, checked inside a defender and thumped the ball inside the right post. His second goal was a picture perfect overhead kick. Motta made the third with a delicious pass inside two defenders which Maicon finished in trademark fashion - with violence.

Attendance : 40,000
Assists : Stankovic, Pandev, Motta

LAZIO 2 (Lichtsteiner 6, Cruz 73)

Swiss fullback Lichtsteiner scored his first goal of the season, side footing Mauri's cross past Curci. Lazio were tearing through the Siena defence almost at will on the counter but failed to take any further chances. Cruz scored within ten seconds of replacing the once again disappointing Zarate. A corner bounced off several players in the penalty box, Cruz jumped up and sent an overhead kick into the bottom corner.
