ATALANTA 1-1 INTER
Gautieri 70 Martins 13
Morfeo sent Martins clear after intercepting a hospital pass and he calmly slotted into the
corner. Minutes after Toldo had brilliantly saved an overhead kick, he fumbled a tame shot
and Gautieri pounced to equalise.
Cuper rested most of his star players ahead of next week's Milan derby, obviously he's
given up on the title.

CHIEVO 3-1 PIACENZA
De Franceschi 64, 69 Di Francesco 47
Di Francesco scored after Ambrosio, standing in for Lupatelli again, dropped a cross. Di Franceschi
came off the bench to win the match. Ambrosio's long ball was headed on and eventually fell to
Pellisier, he hooked the ball over Orlandoni then poked it back across goal and De Franceschi
tapped in. He scored his second from a corner and Bjelanovic made it 3-1 when he capitalised
on a failed offside trap.

LAZIO 0-0 JUVENTUS
Lopez (twice) and Cesar missed great chances as Lazio kept sending crosses into the box -
Juve's major weakness. Collina bottled handball decisions in each half, first by Tacchinardi
then in the second half a 100% blatant handball by Iuliano with Buffon stranded. Lazio
won a penalty at the third time of asking when Castroman went down under a challenge by
Thuram. Fiore's piss poor penalty was easily saved.
Game, set and championship Juve.

MILAN 2-0 COMO
Inzaghi 11 (Pen)
Inzaghi converted a penalty awarded for a foul on Ambrosini. Brocchi missed two
excellent chances. Nesta scored his first league goal of the season with an excellent
volley at the far post! Seedorf made his long awaited return from injury, coming on
as a second half substitute for Ambrosini. Rivaldo came within inches of scoring one
of the goals of the season. He picked the ball up on the half way line and dribbled past
four players before lobbing it against the crossbar, Shevchenko wasted the rebound.

MODENA 1-1 EMPOLI

PARMA 1-2 BOLOGNA
Mutu 65 Paramatti 59
Paramatti made up for some of his recent blunders with a strike from Signori's volleyed
pass. Mutu equalised with a free kick. Pierini went to sleep on a cross allowing Locatelli to
steal in and score. Adriano dribbled through the Bologna defence and shot against the post.

Bonazzoli 15 Tomassi 61
Nakamura 92 Emerson 63
Vargas 68 (og)
Panucci got caught ball watching, Falsini run down the left and pulled the ball back for Bonazzoli
to shoot Reggina into the lead. Three goals in seven minutes put Roma 1-3 up. Tommasi scored
the first with a fantastic diving header. Emerson thumped a volley over Belardi after Cassano
played him in with an awesome flicked pass. Vargas scored an own goal when the ball rebounded
off his face. Nakamura's stunning free kick gave Reggina a late consolation goal.
