JUVENTUS 1 (Vidal 57)

Another crooked Juventus win, so crooked in fact an Italian bookmaker paid out on Catania wins and draws. Vidal scored an offside goal and Catania had a valid equaliser chalked off for a phantom offside.

Attendance :12,000
Red Card : Marchese 67 (Catania)
Assist : n/a

BOLOGNA 1 (Cherubin 58)
INTER 3 (Ranocchia 27, Milito 53, Cambiasso 64)

Ranocchia headed in a Cambiasso free kick and the wasteful Milito scored his first goal in 4 games thanks to Palacio. Cherubin took advantage of a rare mistake by Handanovic to head Bologna back into the match but six minutes later Inter's Argentinean trio of Milito, Palacio and Cambiasso combined to seal victory.

Attendance : 24,512
Assists : Cambiasso (fk), Palacio, Diamanti (ck), Palacio

FIORENTINA 2 (Ljajic 46, Toni 90)

Jovetic looked to play a one-two with Ljajic but the Serbian midfielder had other ideas and danced around a defender before crashing a right foot shot into the top left corner. Cuadrado threw himself over Ledesma's outstretched leg to earn him a second yellow and Hernanes scissored the same player to get a straight red. Luca Toni used his giant arse to back into a defender, turn onto Aquilani's pass and shoot into the corner, excellent goal.

Attendance :20,287
Red Cards : Ledesma 75 (Lazio), Hernanes 82 (Roma)

TORINO 1 (Basha 92)
PARMA 3 (Sansone 72, Amauri 73, Rosi 88)

Sansone played a one-two with Parolo before running past a defender and volleying into the right corner. It was the former Bayern youth team players first Serie A goal. Injury prone Marco Marchionni, making only his 4 appearance in the last 2 seasons, showed great skill to control a cross before sending a ball to the back post for Amauri to head in seconds after Sansone's opener. Darmian kicked fresh air when he should have cleared and Biabiany pounced to lay on Parma's third. Basha volleyed in a late consolation goal from Cerci's cross.

Attendance : 16,000
Red Card : Sansone 53 (Torino)
Assists : Parolo, Marchionni, Biabiany, Cerci

ROMA 2 (Lamela 22, Lamela 24)
UDINESE 3 (Domizzi 32, Di Natale 50, Di Natale 88 Pen)

Lamela scored an amazing first goal. He chased down a clearance and as the ball ran towards the goal-line he turned to face it then dragged it away from a defender and ran straight at Brkic, he sold him a dummy, dropping him on his arse then scooped a shot inside the post. Less than two minutes later Totti found Osvaldo free on the left of the box and Lamela met his first time cross with a superb diving header. Osvaldo's poor defensive header left Domizzi unmarked in front of goal and he began the comeback as the Roma defence appealed for offside. Stekelenburg denied Di Natale with a point blank save, Maicosuel was fouled as he tried to shoot the rebound, the ball broke to Armero who sliced his shot to the back post and Di Natale's spinning back heel volley trickled into the net. It would have been a phenomenal goal but for the fact Stekelenburg should have saved it. Pereyra intercepted a poor ball from Lamela and rode a challenge in midfield before passing to Maicosuel and he continued his run forward, Maicosuel returned the ball, Pereyra went over under minimal contact from Castan and one of the linesmen convinced the referee it was a penalty. Di Natale converted with a Panenka which is now getting very cliched.

What can you say about Zeman that hasn't been said before? Nothing, everyone knows he's a crap coach.

Attendance : 36,500
Red Card : Tachtsidis 92 (Roma)
Assists : n/a, Osvaldo, n/a, Armero, Pereyra (won pen)
