Benevento saw off Crotone 3-2 with a last-gasp goal from Cheick Diabate and Bologna got the better of 10-man Sassuolo in the Emilia-Romagna Derby.
It could prove to be a decisive afternoon in the race to avoid relegation.
It was a massive head-to-head at the Stadio Vigorito and lived up to the billing with a spectacular five-goal game, concluded by substitute Diabate scoring on his Serie A debut.
Bologna saw Andrea Poli’s opener wiped out by Khouma Babacar, but after Edoardo Goldaniga harshly saw red, Erick Pulgar arrowed in a ferocious free kick.
Elsewhere, SPAL were only narrowly beaten 1-0 by top of the table Napoli.
