Brescia are still alive and kicking, as the 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona gives them some remaining hope of avoiding relegation.
Atalanta registered an eighth consecutive Serie A victory and moved to within a point of third-place Inter, but made surprisingly hard work of it against 10-man Cagliari.
It was a Pazza Inter performance, as after Lautaro Martinez’s penalty was saved, Bologna fought back down to 10 men for a shock 2-1 win with Musa Barrow and Musa Juwara goals.
Juventus made history a few times in this Derby della Mole, as Gigi Buffon set a new Serie A record, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first free kick and Torino were crushed 4-1.
Lazio couldn’t make it work without suspended Ciro Immobile and Felipe Caicedo, as Milan ran out 3-0 winners from the Olimpico, allowing Juventus to go seven points clear.
Lorenzo Insigne’s late curler into the far top corner gave Napoli the 2-1 victory over Roma on Nicolò Zaniolo’s comeback, putting these teams in joint fifth place.
Fiorentina picked up a morale-boosting victory at the Stadio Tardini over Parma, but VAR and penalties were the stars of this show.
Karol Linetty enjoyed a rare brace, pouncing on two awful SPAL defensive errors, while Manolo Gabbiadini’s free kick did the rest for Sampdoria.
Sassuolo continued their extraordinary scoring streak, but it was tougher than expected to get the better of Lecce in a 4-2 thriller.
Genoa managed an extraordinary comeback from 2-0 down in this relegation battle, Andrea Pinamonti equalising with the last kick of the game – despite seeing his penalty saved.
