CHIEVO 1 (Pellissier 83 Pen)
LAZIO 3 (Hernanes 5, Klose 37, Hernanes 74)

Hernanes received possession around 30 yards from goal, slalomed his way between two players then thumped a right footed drive in off the left post. A fabulous dummy took him away from a defender on the half way line as he tore through the middle of the Chievo defence, Sorrentino made an excellent save with his feet but Klose tapped in the rebound. Hernanes held off a defender as this time he cut in from the left flank and from a tight angle flashed a shot inside the right corner. Pellissier tapped in a consolation penalty awarded for a push in the box.

FIORENTINA 2 (Jovetic 43, Toni 65)

Jovetic continued his superb start to the campaign with a low drive inside the left post - his fourth goal of the season. Jovetic unselfishly passed up the chance to score a second when centring for Fiorentina legend Luca Toni to score his first goal since returning after a five year hiatus.

Attendance : 22,727
Assists : Ljajic, Jovetic

GENOA 1 (Immobile 18)
JUVENTUS 3 (Giaccherini 61, Vucinic 78 Pen, Asamoah 84)

Immobile, who missed when through on goal in the opening minutes, gave Genoa a shock lead with a deflected shot on the counter. Both teams wasted numerous chances in an insanely open match though Genoa had the better of the chances and should have been two goals up after Sampirisi missed a free header then after Buffon saved with his feet from Bertolacci, Juventus ran up the other end and Giaccherini smashed substitute Vucinic's centre past a helpless Frey. Fellow substitute and diver Asamoah won Juve's weekly bullshit penalty and a deflection left him with a back post tap-in.

NAPOLI 3 (Cavani 3 Pen, Pandev 39, Insigne 77)
PARMA 1 (Parolo 44)

Mirante fouled Pandev to concede the penalty. Hamsik beat Parma's offside trap onto a Cavani pass and centred for Pandev to score Napoli's second. Parolo's freak header gave Parma hope. Mirante twice denied Cavani before the much hyped Insigne scored his first ever Serie A goal after Pandev split two defenders with a fabulous pass.

Attendance : 30,000
Assists : Pandev (won pen), Hamsik, Ninis, Pandev

PESCARA 2 (Celik 74, Caprari 90)
SAMPDORIA 3 (Maxi Lopez 31, Estigarribia 60, Maxi Lopez 76)

Eder took a defender wide as he ran onto a through pass then centred for Maxi Lopez. Another reject, Estigarribia, bounced a crossfield pass off his chest before slamming a half volley past Perin. Celik pulled a goal back when stroking Quintero's pass inside the right post but Maxi Lopez, carelessly discarded by Milan, pulled off the shoulder of a defender before restoring Samp's two goal cushion. Pescara's Roma owned Italy U-18 striker Gianluca Caprari scored his first Serie A goal with a shot from the edge of the box - which Berni should have saved.

Attendance : 15,500
Assists : Eder, Krsticic, Quintero, Soriano, Colucci

ROMA 2 (Florenzi 6, Lamela 16)
BOLOGNA 3 (Gilardino 72, Diamanti 73, Gilardino 90)

Florenzi headed in a rebound after Totti rattled the crossbar with a shot from edge of the box. Lamela scored a cheap second. As Perez lay injured, admittedly after trying to go through the back of Pjanic, Lamela ran past his prone body and fired a shot in off the left post. Fine strike which was followed by a typical Zeman collapse. Gilardino headed in a cross and less than a minute later with his back to goal flicked on a pass via a deflection and Diamanti's first time shot bounced into the bottom corner. The awful Burdisso jumped in two footed to attack a centre which Stekelenburg was about to claim, the ball broke loose and Gilardino pounced to give Bologna their first win of the season.

SIENA 2 (Calaio 70, Ze Eduardo 77)
UDINESE 2 (Basta 3, Di Natale 5)

Basta, who doesn't score tap-ins, intercepted a clearance before lashing a volley over Pegolo. He made the second with a storming run deep from his own half before crossing for Di Natale to head home. Udinese were cruising until the referee cheated them out of a player with a ridiculous red card, no doubt helped by Rosina's theatrics. Calaio headed in a deep cross and seven minutes later Domizzi threw away three points when he jumped in with a two footed challenge on Angelo though didn't appear to make much contact.

Attendance : 7,831
Red Card : Lazzari 52 (Udinese)
Assists : n/a, Basta, Sestu, Angelo (won pen)

INTER 2 (Milito 13, Cassano 83)

The embarrassing Jonathan tried to flick on a pass but sliced the ball, Gazzi overhit a pass to Ogbonna and Milito thundered a shot past Gillet. Cassano came off the bench to score Inter's second.

Attendance : 26,000

PALERMO 1 (Rios 40)
CAGLIARI 1 (Sau 88)

Miccoli pulled back a centre and from the edge of the box Rios hammered a first time shot into the bottom corner. Ujkani made a fantastic save as Perico connected with a left wing cross but Sau headed in the rebound to steal an ill deserved point.

Palermo coach Sannino became the 41st coach sacked by Zamparni on Sunday and was replaced by Gasperini.
