JUVENTUS 2 (Vidal 8 Pen, Vidal 28)

Cana was lucky not to be sent off for going in two footed from behind on Vucinic. Cana should have made amends for conceding the penalty but kicked fresh air from six yards on a Lazio corner. Vidal tapped in a deflected cross. Lazio finally made a game of after going 0-2 down and there would have been more goals but some atrocious finishing by Marchisio and Kozak.

PALERMO 1 (Ilicic 5)
BOLOGNA 1 (Gabbiadini 17)

Ilicic rolled a ball into Miccoli, he knocked it back looking to play a one-two but Ilicic had other ideas and hammered the return pass into the bottom left corner. Sorrentino slipped when running to gather a back pass allowing Gabbiadini to walk in the equaliser.

Assists : Miccoli, n/a

CAGLIARI 2 (Pinilla 63 Pen, Pinilla 76)

GENOA 1 (Matuzalem 80)
SAMPDORIA 1 (Eder 28)

Eder smashed a shot through a gaping hole in the Genoa wall to give the visitors the lead. Matuzalem noticed Romero had strayed off his line and beat him with a lob from 35 yards. Super goal.

UDINESE 3 (Muriel 12, Muriel 43, Pereyra 62)

Udinese's 18 year old Polish midfielder Zielinski helped a loose ball onto Muriel and he whipped a shot inside the right post. His second was a tap-in from a Basta centre. Pereyra put away a rebound to complete this surprisingly one sided rout. Parma are usually strong at home.

Attendance : 13,000
Assists : Zielinski, Basta, n/a

TORINO 1 (Bianchi 31)
ROMA 2 (Osvaldo 22, Lamela 60)

Osvaldo headed Roma into the lead from a superb Balzaretti cross. Burdisso fell when challenging Bianchi for a cross allowing the Torino striker to fire his side level. Totti gave a pass to Lamela who was standing on the right wing, he dribbled between two players before curling a left footed shot inside the left post. It would have been a fantastic goal - had it not have taken a (probable) deflection off Ogbonna.

Attendance : 15,000
Assists : Balzaretti, n/a, Totti

MILAN 1 (Flamini 30)
NAPOLI 1 (Pandev 33)

Milan made a bright start and took a deserved lead when Flamini tapped in a loose ball to score in successive games for probably the first time in his career. Flamini was slow to track Hamsik onto a telegraphed pass and he played a brilliant pass inside Zapata for Pandev to equalise. Cavani should have given Napoli the lead 10 minutes later but tried to lob Abbiati from close range when a shot would have been difficult to save. Flamini was sent off for going in two footed on Zuniga. According to ESPN's commentary team he's not that type of player. Yes he is. Despite their man advantage once again big game bottlers Napoli failed to beat a top side on the road.

Attendance : 42,000
Red Card : Flamini 72 (Milan)
Assists : Pazzini, Hamsik

PESCARA 2 (Celik 52, Togni 59 fk)
SIENA 3 (Angelo 14, Zanon 33 og, Emeghara 86)

Angelo returned Capuano's attempted clearance with an instant header and the ball sailed past Pelizzoli, An own goal gave Siena a two goal lead but doomed Pescara came storming back. Celik thumped a loose ball past a poorly positioned Pegolo and Togni equalised with a brilliant free kick. Siena broke from a Pescara corner and Emeghara tapped in the winner from Agra's centre though he appeared to be offside.

FIORENTINA 2 (Pizarro 61 Pen, Larrondo 72)

Fiorentina got another soft penalty. This time for an apparent handball. Larrondo beat Consigli with a low drive. Denis was sent off for a two footed leg breaking foul on Pizarro. Out of character for the gentle giant.
