SIENA 3 (Emeghara 6, Rosina 23, Emeghara 61)

Midget Emeghara scored another brilliant header when he ran across a defender and jumped to powerfully head Rubin's cross into the roof of the net. Lazio were again exposed down their left, Emeghara's back heel released Rubin on the overlap and Rosina converted his cross. Biava and Marchetti collided with each other as they tried to beat Emeghara to a loose ball, needless to say they failed.

Another dreadful performance by Lazio who have only won one of their last five games.

CAGLIARI 2 (Sau 53, Sau 61)

Sau got between two defenders to head in a high cross. Pisano tried to back heel a centre, his wayward shot landed at Sau's feet and he quickly turned to score his and Cagliari's second. Weiss became the latest player to be sent off for kicking Ibarbo.

TORINO 2 (Cerci 42, Birsa 87)
ATALANTA 1 (Denis 75 Pen)

A brilliant pass on the turn sent Cerci into space down the left and as he ran into the box he poked the ball into the bottom left corner. Fine finish and the rumour is he's in line for an Italy call-up. Gillet tripped Livaja to concede the penalty and failed to save Denis' spot kick despite getting a touch. Torino scored a highly fortuitous winner when Darmian headed a cross, the ball hit Birsa and flew past a helpless Consigli.

FIORENTINA 4 (Ljajic 13, Jovetic 33, Jovetic 55, Ljajic 65)
INTER 1 (Cassano 87)

After some neat interplay the ball was crossed from the left, Jovetic got the faintest of touches and Ljajic, standing in an offside position, headed past Handanovic. Inter were passing the ball out of defence when Aquilani steamed into Kuzmanovic and the ball broke to Jovetic, standing with his back to goal on the edge of the box, he took one touch to control the ball, feigned a back heel then ran ahead of Ranocchia before crashing a shot into the top right corner. Fantastic goal. Aquilani made a fabulous assist for the third. With his back to goal he flicked the ball as he spun 180 degrees and it landed right at Jovetic's feet. Ljajic completed the rout with a lovely shot from the edge of the box, he controlled a Valero pass and lifted the ball into the bottom corner. Cassano thundered home a rebound.

MILAN 2 (Paletta 39 og, Balotelli 78 fk)
PARMA 1 (Sansone 93)

In an absolutely dreadful first half Paletta turned a Boateng cross into his own net though much of the blame must fall on goalkeeper Pavarini for straying too far off his line. Balotelli scored his fourth goal in three games with an excellent free kick. Milan switched off to concede seconds before the full time whistle as Sansone completed a personal hat-trick of scoring against the (traditional) top three - Juventus, Inter and Milan.
