Palermo 3 – AC Milan 1 (Serie A, April 24, 2010) (Longer highlights here.) Palmero took an early 2-nil lead against AC Milan, Bovo and Abel Hernandez grabbed the goals for the men in pink. Clarence Seedorf pulled the Rossoneri back into the game after the break, but a wonder-strike from Fabrizio Miccoli sealed the Sicilians victory.

Inter Milan 3 – Atalanta 1 (Serie A, April 24, 2010) Atalanta striker Simone Tiribocchi stunned Mourinho’s men with an early strike at the San Siro, but the Scudetto hopefuls drew level midway through the first half when Diego Milito scored with a cute lob from the edge of the box. Inter then took the lead through Kenyan midfielder McDonald Mariga who scored only his second ever goal for the club from close range. Inter made sure of avoiding an upset when Cristian Chivu cracked home a beauty in the 77th minute to kill the match.
