Genoa missed an early penalty with Cristobal Jorquera, but eventually got the better of Cagliari.
Juventus started the season with a controversial win over Parma, as Arturo Vidal’s penalty was saved and Andrea Pirlo’s goal might not have been over the line.
Sampdoria caused a huge upset with a 1-0 victory at San Siro to silence Milan, as Kevin-Prince Boateng hit the woodwork in stoppages.
Napoli made a stunning start to their Serie A season, demolishing Palermo 3-0 at the Stadio Barbera.
Antonio Cassano provided an assist on his Inter debut, as the Nerazzurri dominated on Pescara’s return to Serie A after 20 years.
Roma are certainly not dull under Zdenek Zeman, as they fought back twice to hold Catania 2-2 with stunning Pablo Osvaldo and Nico Lopez goals.
Torino had the better of the first half, but Siena had the best chance with Gaetano D’Agostino’s free kick rattling the woodwork in this goalless draw.
