Lazio 0 – Inter Milan 3 (Serie A, December 6, 2008) A powerful header from Inter’s Walter Samuel on the run put Mourinho’s boys ahead at Lazio. De Silvestri flashed a shot wide as the hosts looked to equalise, while Zlatan displayed amazing agility with an overhead-pass to play in Stankovic down the right hand side. Inter doubled their lead on the stroke of halftime when Diakite turned the ball into his own net from Maicon’s cross. In the second half Ibrahimovic added a third from Cambiasso’s free-kick.
Livorno 3 – Salernitana 0 (Serie B, December 6, 2008) Tavano’s tap-in, Candreva’s long-range effort and a trademark Diamanti free-kick gave Livorno the points.
Grosseto 1 – Cittadella 1 (Serie B, December 6, 2008) Cittadella, battling relegation, took the lead through Meggiorini’s left-foot strike. Sansovini snatched a precious point in the second half, showing strength to batter down the defence and convert Valeri’s assist.
Brescia 1 – Albinoleffe 0 (Serie B, December 6, 2008) Possanzini’s fourth goal of the campaign proved enough to win the local derby in Brescia’s third consecutive victory.
Parma 1 – Avellino 0 (Serie B, December 6, 2008) Parma continued their renaissance to move joint second along with Sassuolo, Grosseto and Brescia. Danish defender Troest became the unlikely hitman by nodding in a set play.
Empoli 2 – Bari 0 (Serie B, December 5, 2008) Pozzi gave the hosts the lead with 20 minutes left on the clock and Lodi’s late penalty sealed the win.
