The Roman derby ended goalless, whilst Chievo dropped into the bottom three on Sunday.

Lazio were looking to reclaim third spot from Milan - but they could not find a way past rivals Roma, who remain clear in second.

Internazionale cruised to another victory - a 3-1 win over Empoli.

Although Julio Cruz's strike (27) was cancelled out by Luca Saudati (57), two goals in a minute from Alvaro Recoba (59) and Dejan Stankovic (60) made it a comfortable evening for the recently crowned champions.

Palermo claimed fifth place as they defeated Livorno 2-1.

All the goals arrived in the first half with Palermo taking the lead through Eugenio Corini on 47 minutes as he converted from the penalty spot.

Cesar levelled for Livorno - again from the spot, but the match was won by Palermo 15 minutes from time when David Di Michele fired home.

Udinese were reduced to eight men, as they succumbed 1-0 at home to Catania.

Marco Motta was dismissed on 51 minutes for a deliberate handball and Gionatha Spinesi converted the resulting penalty.

Udinese saw their numbers reduced further when Antonio Di Natale (55) and Andrea Dossena (79) both saw red.

Sampdoria took advantage of Udinese's defeat and moved above them into eighth as they won 2-0 at Siena.

Goals in either half from Cristian Maggio (39) and Gennaro Delvecchio (89) sealed victory for Blucerchiati.

Parma and Reggina were both big winners in the bottom half as their victories lifted them way up the Serie A table.

Parma move into 12th with their 2-1 win over Cagliari.

Goals from Igor Budan (28) and Andrea Gasbaroni (74 pen) sandwiched an effort from Daniele Conti (64).

Reggina are just one place worse off than Parma after they sealed a 3-2 win at bottom-of-the-table Ascoli - whose relegation is now all but confirmed.

Michele Fini gave Ascoli the lead after 15 minutes, but two goals from Nicola Amoruso (24 & 31) put Reggina in control.

Pasquale Foggia added a third just after the break, but Ascoli were given some hope when Massimo Bonanni (83) pounced.

The home side's hopes disappeared when Michelangelo Minieri (88) was dismissed.

Messina's hopes of survival were not greatly helped by their 0-0 draw at home to Atalanta.
