highlights and the table.

Saturday, 24 November

Genoa 0 x AS Roma 1. Another game-winning goal by Christian Panucci at the death. Was Christian a striker in a past life? ;-)

Internazionale 2 x Atalanta 1. David Suazo and Julio Cruz scored for Inter, and Sergio Floccari had the lone goal for the Bergamaschi. Javier "Pupi" Zanetti made his 400th appearance in the Serie A for Inter.

Sunday, 25 November

Cagliari 1 x AC Milan 2. Robert Acquafresca scored early for the Sardinians, but second half goals by Alberto Gilardino and Andrea Pirlo produced another away win for Milan. Kaka' missed from the spot.

Empoli 0 x Torino 0. A potential relegation derby ended predictably.

Lazio 1 x Parma 0. In a game dedicated to Gabriele Sandri, in the 90th minute, Fabio Firmani scored the game winner for Lazio.

Livorno 3 x Sampdoria 1. The Amaranto continue their good recent form with another victory. A goal by Dario Knezcevic and a brace by Francesco Tavano for Livorno. Claudio Bellucci scored for Samp.

Napoli 2 x Catania 0. Marcelo Zalayeta continues his excellent form with another brace for the Azzurri.

Reggina 0 x Fiorentina 0. La Viola were without their coach, Mr. Prandelli, along with several key players, and could not obtain more than a draw in Calabria.

Udinese 2 x Siena 0. The Friuliani rise to third in the table after goals by Fabio Quagliarella and Antonio Di Natale.

Juventus 5 x Palermo 0. Juventus fired on all cylinders with goals by David Trezeguet, Vincenzo Iaquinta, a beautiful 24 meter free kick by Alex Del Piero, Marco Marchioni, and a spot kick by Del Piero on the last play of the game.
  • In a very positive move, sections of the stadium behind the goals (le curve) where the away Ultras usually sit, will be used to allow children under the age of 14 free entry into various Italian stadia. Certain fan groups have been banned, which frees up these areas.

  • This is an important message, and shows that Serie A owners are serious about promoting a safer fan experience. Not to mention the importance of having children, a rare sight, at top flight Italian games.
