Serie A: Juventus crush Samp; Milan revival stalls; Lazio’s winless streak continues; Roma & Fiorentina lose

Juventus 5 – Sampdoria 1 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) Amauri gave Juventus the lead against high flying Sampdoria when the ball fell invitingly from a corner, Giorgio Chiellini doubled the lead three minutes before the break. Early in the second half Juve added a third from Mauro Camoranesi after good work by Giovinco and then goal scorer turned provider for Amauri to head home his second of the match. Serial goal scorer Giamapolo Pazzini pulled one back before David Trezeguet completed the rout late on.

Napoli 2 – AC Milan 2 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) A resurgent AC Milan made a blistering start at Napoli and looked to have won the match in the opening six minutes. Seedorf played in Pippo Inzaghi for the opener on three minutes and then Alexandre Pato doubled the lead when given a huge amount of freedom. Napoli salvaged a remarkable draw thanks to Luca Cigarini’s 90th-minute volley and German Denis’s stoppage-time header.

Parma 2 – Bari 0 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) It took almost an hour to open the scoring, but Valeri Bojinov’s incredible strike was certainly worth waiting for. Alberto Paloschi then doubled the lead, showing good strength to hold off a challenge before beating the keeper.

Lazio 0 – Cagliari 1 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) Alessandro Matri put the visitors in front in the 50th minute, and the Biancocelesti proved incapable of finding an equaliser.

Udinese 2 – Roma 1 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) Floro Flores headed Udinese in front from Gaetano D’Agostino’s free-kick on 21 minutes, but Daniele De Rossi levelled from close range three minutes before half-time. Roma were reduced to 10 men on 48 minutes when Rodrigo Taddei was sent off before Udinese’s Dusan Basta was shown a second yellow card on 78 minutes. With six minutes to go Udinese stole the points when Floro Flores headed home Alexis Sanchez’s corner.

Bologna 2 – Siena 1 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) Adailton broke the deadlock on 16 minutes with a shot from outside the area, moments after he had fired a free-kick against the crossbar. Pablo Daniel Osvaldo headed Bologna 2-0 in front just before the hour and Adailton hit the bar again for the hosts on 63 minutes. Siena did set up a nervy finale when substitute Emanuele Calaio headed in Massimo Maccarone’s cross, but the home side held on.

Genoa 2 – Fiorentina 1 (Serie A, October 28, 2009) Raffaele Palladino put Genoa ahead two minutes before half-time, and Fiorentina duo Riccardo Montolivo and Alessandro Gamberini were thwarted by the post before the equaliser arrived on 63 minutes. Marco Marchionni finished from Manuel Pasqual’s pass, but Mesto made a quick impact after coming off the bench to net the winner on 73 minutes.
