BOLOGNA 2 (Ramirez 49, Acquafresca 64)

In demand (though overpriced) Ramirez did his prospects of an end of season move to one of the big Serie A club a power of good with a fantastic goal. Di Vaio was tackled as he ran into the box, the ball broke for the Uruguayan midfielder and standing inside the left side of the box he curled a first time shot into the top right corner. A 50 yard defensive header released Acquafresca on the counter and he kept his composure and waited for Fontana to commit before slotting the ball through his legs and into an empty net. Di Vaio missed a hat-trick of chances.

LAZIO 2 (Hernanes 51, Klose 93)
ROMA 1 (Osvaldo 5)

Gago looked to play a one-two on the edge of the box but Pjanic dropped his cross over the Lazio defence and Osvaldo bounced the ball off his shoulder before beating Marchetti. Marchetti spilled an Angel centre but Osvaldo couldn't control the ball from a yard out. Kjaer tugged at Brocchi as he burst onto a Hernanes through ball and he made the most of the foul to win a penalty and earn Kjaer a red card. Hernanes sent Stekelenburg the wrong way. Klose headed a corner against the crossbar and Cisse rattled the inside of the left post with a spectacular mid-air volley. In the dying seconds of injury time Lulic tossed a throw in to Ledesma, he passed to Hernanes and as Matuzalem received the ball with his back to play he flicked on a first time cross to Klose, who was between Cassetti and Burdisso, and with an excellent first touch he controlled the ball before shooting wide of Stekelenburg.

CATANIA 2 (Almiron 47, Lodi 50 Pen)
INTER 1 (Cambiasso 6)

Inter worked an attack down the right, Maicon hung up a cross to the back post and an unmarked Cambiasso sent a volley bouncing into the bottom right corner. Bergessio drove forward on a counter attack, taking two players with him, he played the ball out wide to Almiron and he curled a first time shot up and over Castelazzi. Brilliant goal. Ricchiuti played a ball over the top of the Inter defence, Bergessio ran through and as Castelazzi came off his line he made sure to hook his trailing leg against Castelazzi's hands and went over. Bullshit penalty. Dead ball specialist Lodi made no mistake and Catania wasted several more chances to further humiliate Inter.

Yep Gasperini was defiantly the problem.

Attendance : 28,000
Assists : Maicon, Bergessio, Bergessio (won pen)

MILAN 3 (Nocerino 39, Robinho 55, Cassano 63)

Milan looked great in first half highlight form but in truth their were long spells of tedium. All three forwards missed excellent chances before former Palermo captain Nocerino scored the opening goal. Ibrahimovic trapped Cassano's crossfield pass on his chest, chipped a ball upto the back post, Aquilani headed down and Nocerino tapped past Tzorvas and refused to celebrate. Ibrahimovic played a lovely pass inside two defenders to Robinho who opened his body before poking into the corner. Ibrahimovic continued to miss chances. Abate pulled back a center for Cassano to tap in the third.

Attendance : 47,765
Assists : Aquilani, Ibrahimovic, Abate

NAPOLI 1 (Mascara 76)
PARMA 2 (Gobbi 57, Modesto 83)

Lots of possession for Napoli in and around the Parma penalty area but they didn't put Mirante under a great deal of pressure. Floccari returned a Gobbi pass with a back heal and he ran through a weak challenge to score his first Parma goal. A back heal also opened up the Parma defence, Lavezzi laid off a Gargano pass with a back heal and Mascara burst through to equalise. Parma restored their lead 7 minutes later, Valiani played in Giovinco on the right and Modesto tapped in his center. Mirante made an astonishing point blank save from Maggio as he met a free kick with a bullet header and Cavani smashed the rebound against the outside of the right post.

Attendance : 35,000
Assists : Floccari, Lavezzi, Giovinco
