Lazio gained revenge for their Coppa Italia quarter-final defeat, inflicting Atalanta’s first Serie A loss of 2021 including a stunning Adam Marusic curler and classic counter-attacks.
Milan made hard work of their 2-1 win in Bologna, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s penalty was parried into the path of Ante Rebic and Franck Kessie converted, but both goalkeepers were kept busy.
Cagliari have six defeats in a row as they host a Sassuolo side who won just one of the last five Serie A games.
Crotone sit at the bottom of the Serie A table, but Genoa have only one victory from nine away games so far this season.
Inter made short work of Benevento with a 4-0 thrashing at San Siro, including a Romelu Lukaku brace and Lautaro Martinez ending his goal drought.
A solo effort from Eljif Elmas and a deflected shot by Matteo Politano gave Napoli a 2-0 win against Parma on Sunday.
Three goals in nine minutes during the first half gave Roma a rather comfortable 3-1 win against Hellas Verona on Sunday night.
Federico Chiesa’s early goal and a stoppage-time Aaron Ramsey counter-attack proved the difference, as Juventus did the bare minimum to take all three points against Sampdoria.
Rodrigo de Paul was the protagonist at Alfredo Picco, as he scored the winner from the penalty spot and was then sent off, when Udinese and Spezia finished with 10 vs. 10.
Torino only managed to pick up a point against nine-man Fiorentina, as Franck Ribery's opener was cancelled out by Andrea Belotti in a dramatic second half.
