Roma 1-0 Udinese:

Another match, another win. That’s nine wins from nine for Michael Bradley’s Roma as they continue to shred their opponents. The American, on as a substitute, scored in the 82nd minute to give 10-man Roma yet another victory.

Already missing Francesco Totti and red-hot winger Gervinho due to injury, Maicon was sent off for his second yellow card with 25 minutes remaining.  The win ends Udinese’s 22-match home unbeaten streak.

Parma 3-2 AC Milan:

The only surprise of the weekend in Serie A play came when AC Milan fell 3-2 on the road at Parma? But is that even a surprise anymore?

Milan now have just two points on the road in Serie A play from three matches, as Marco Parolo’s free kick goal with just seconds left on the clock gave Parma the victory and sent them to seventh in the table, while Milan remain mired in ninth.

The goal was Parolo’s second of the match, his first coming in the 11th minute when he opened the scoring on a rebound.

Antonio Cassano had the third for Parma, while Alessandro Matri and Matias Silvestre found the scoresheet for Milan.

Napoli 2-0 Torino

Gonzalo Higuain converted a pair of early penalties to down Torino.  Dries Mertens was tripped in the box by Nicola Bellomo in the 11th minute for the first, and a handball in the box by Kamil Glik gave them their second.

Migjen Basha was shown a straight red with five minutes to go when he brought down Goran Pandev who was clear on goal.

Juventus 2-0 Genoa

Arturo Vidal slotted home a penalty and Carlos Tevez scored a golazo as Juventus cruised over Genoa.

Both goals came in the first 25 minutes, but Juventus came close a number of other times in a dominating win.

Chievo 1-2 Fiorentina

Juan Cuadrado bagged a double as Fiorentina held on to go fifth in the Serie A table.  The brace overcame an early Chievo lead thanks to a Bostjan Cesar 12th minute header.

Chievo drop to the bottom of the table thanks to results by Sassuolo and Bologna.

Catania 0-0 Sassuolo

Sassuolo rise off the bottom of the table. Nothing else to see here.

Bologna 1-0 Livorno

The home side grabbed their first win of the season courtesy of Jose Angel Crespo’s third-minute score.

SATURDAY:

Inter Milan 4-2 Verona

Inter picked up the first win of their last four matches thanks to goals by Rodrigo Palacio, Esteban Matias Cambiasso, and Rolando plus an own goal from Verona.

Sampdoria 1-0 Atalanta

An odd turn of events saw Sampdoria see out 10-man Atalanta and ease away from the relegation zone.

The home side scored when Shkodran Mustafi headed in for the lead.  Atalanta midfielder Luca Cignarini had tried to hit the ball away but failed.  The referee initially blew his whistle to send off Cignarini and award a penalty, but when the ball trickled in he instead rescinded the red card and allowed the goal.

Atalanta then did in fact lose a man seven minutes later when substitute Constantin Nica was sent off in just his 2nd career Serie A match for a hard tackle.
