Atalanta put on another masterclass by thrashing Cagliari 5-2, and it would’ve been more if not for Alessio Cragno, maintaining their perfect start.
Gianluca Lapadula got the better of Aaron Hickey to volley in Benevento’s winner at the back post, but Bologna felt their equaliser was harshly disallowed.
Valerio Verre lobbed the winner off the bench as Sampdoria picked up their first points in a 2-1 win against Fiorentina on Friday.
Torino finally celebrated their first Serie A victory of the season, conquering Genoa 2-1 at Marassi in this rescheduled Week 3 match.
Juventus have been handed the 3-0 victory by default and Napoli docked one point, as the Disciplinary Commission rules the Partenopei didn’t follow the COVID-19 protocol.
Lazio and Inter shared the spoils at the Olimpico, but also the shame, as there were two red cards and some embarrassing play-acting.
Milan took a while to break down a rugged Spezia, but Rafael Leao eventually bagged a brace around the Theo Hernandez solo run after Hakan Calhanoglu’s introduction.
Parma picked up their first points of the season thanks to a Jasmin Kurtic goal in the opening minute and some poor Hellas Verona finishing.
Sassuolo were clinical in attack, the complete opposite of a Crotone side who failed to take their chances, and emerged with a 4-1 victory.
A spectacular strike from Pedro Rodriguez proved enough to give Roma their first victory of the season, but Udinese will rue so many wasted chances.
