Napoli 2 – Juventus 1 (Serie A, October 18, 2008) Claudio Ranieri’s position as Juve boss is looking tenuous as his side gave away a 1-0 lead provided by Amauri in the 61st minute. Marek Hamsik equalised three minutes later and Ezequiel Lavezzi scored the winner with ten minutes remaining.

Fiorentina 3 – Reggina 0 (Serie A, October 18, 2008) In the first half Reggina had Campagnolo sent off and Pazzini rolled home the resulting penalty to give the hosts the lead. Gilardino, revitalised since his move from AC Milan in the summer, added two late on.
