Serie A Matchday 13 Roundup: Roma Drops Points, Milan Derby Ends Draw

Dzeko and Salah were unable to spur Roma to a win as Atalanta grabbed all three points at the Atleti Azzurri d’Italia stadium.

Diego Perotti put Roma in front courtesy of a well-struck penalty before second-half goals from Mattia Caldera and Franck Yannick Kessie saw Atalanta secure a 2-1 win.

Chievo Verona moved up to 10th place following a 1-0 win over Cagliari as Massimo Gobbi struck home to give Chievo a slender 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute.

Udinese succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against Napoli following a brace from Lorenzo Insigne in the early stages of the second-half. Stipe Perica scored what proved to be a consolation goal for the home side just two minutes after Insigne’s second goal of the game.

Juventus continued their fine form following a 3-0 home win over strugglers Pescara. Sami Khedira, Mario Mandzukic and Hernanes were all on target for Juventus as they extended their lead at the top of the table to seven points following Roma’s shocking loss against Atalanta.

Following a drab first-half, Sampdoria secured a 3-2 win over Sassuolo with all the goals coming in the second-half. Ricci and Antonio Ragusa were on target for Sassuolo while a goal from Fabio Quagliarella and a brace from Luis Muriel saw the home side grab the much-needed win.

Palermo suffered a 3-1 away defeat at the hands of Bologna in a game which saw the home side move up to 13th place. Palermo currently sits in 19th place in the league standings as they’ve picked up just 6 points thus far.

A brace from Andrea Belotti helped Torino to a 2-0 victory against rock-bottom Crotone while Fiorentina picked up an easy win 4-0 over Empoli – Federico Bernardeschi and Josip Illcic scored two goals apiece for Fiorentina.

Goals from Felipe Anderson, Lucas Biglia and Wallace saw Lazio secure a 3-1 win over Genoa. Genoa’s lone goal came courtesy of Lucas Oscampos’ 52nd-minute strike.

The Milan derby was as intriguing and alluring as expected but both sides shared the spoils at the San Siro as Ivan Persic scored a late equaliser for Inter Milan.

Suso bagged a brace for AC Milan – he scored two goals spread across the first 45 and the second-half. Antonio Candreva opened the scoring for Inter before Persic rounded things off in the 90th minute to help his side to a point.
