Juventus are back level on points with Milan after a 2-1 home victory over Bologna.Juventus are back level on points with Serie A leaders Milan after a 2-1 home victory over Bologna.
All the goals were scored in the first half hour at Stadio Delle Alpi, with Juve taking the lead though Fabio Cannavaro on 18 minutes.
They extended their advantage through Marcelo Zalayeta (pictured) six minutes later before Bologna's Federico Giunti made the match a contest on 27 minutes.
Fabio Capello's side, however, held on for three valuable points, as Milan only top the table on goal difference.
Internazionale remain third after a comfortable 2-0 win over struggling Siena at Giuseppe Meazza.
Julio Cruz opened the scoring from the penalty spot after two minutes before Christian Vieri made it two just after the half hour mark.
Defeat for Siena means they stay just a point above the relegation zone.
Udinese moved up to fourth after a 2-1 victory over bottom club Atalanta at the Friuli.
Stefano Mauri gave Udinese the lead after two minutes, but their Bergamo-based opponents levelled matters two minutes later through Andrea Lazzari.
Vincenzo Iaquinta claimed the points for the Udine club eight minutes before half time, as they maintain their push for a UEFA Champions League place.
Sampdoria dropped to fifth after a 2-2 draw with Messina in Sicily.
Francesco Flachi gave the Genoa club the lead on 26 minutes before Messina levelled matters, as Riccardo Zampagna scored the first of his two goals on the half hour mark.
Zampagna then delighted the Stadio Giovanni Celeste crowd with his second goal just before the hour mark, but Sergio Volpi earned a valuable point for Samp with 16 minutes left.
In the late kick-off on Sunday, Palermo were held to a 2-2 draw by Chievo at La Favorita.
The Sicilian hosts are looking to claim a European place after only winning promotion last season, but they went behind to a Sergio Pelissier strike after 10 minutes.
Luca Toni restored parity eight minutes later before Lamberto Zauli made it 2-1 for the home side.
However, a second half leveller from Franco Semioli meant Chievo moved out of the relegation places.
Parma boosted their Serie A survival hopes with a thrilling 6-4 win over Livorno at the Ennio Tardini.
Unlike Thursday night's Uefa Cup goalless draw with CSKA Moscow, the Gialloblu exploded to hit Livorno for six, with Alberto Gilardino scoring four of the home side's goals.
Andrea Pisanu and Fabio Simplicio also found the scoresheet for Parma, as Cristiano Lucarelli's four goals for Livorno - one a penalty - amazingly proved not to be enough on the day.
Lecce and Lazio played out a similar goal fest at Stadio Via Del Mare, with the home side defeating the Rome-based visitors 5-3.
A hat-trick from Mirko Vucinic followed Sam Dalla Bona's early penalty, while Souleymane Diamoutene also found the scoresheet for Lecce.
Tommaso Rocchi's hat-trick proved scant consolation for Lazio, as both sides finished this incredible match with ten men - with Lazio's Cesar and Lecce's Dalla Bona both being given their marching orders before the end.
Brescia are third from bottom, despite a 2-2 draw with struggling Roma at Stadio Olimpico.
Simone Perrotta gave Roma the lead in the first minute before Brescia equalised through Pierre Wome four minutes after the break.
Daniele De Rossi restored Roma's lead on 76 minutes, but Andrea Caracciolo earned Brescia a point four minutes later in the Italian capital.
