Cagliari and Atalanta boosted their survival hopes with wins over Catania and Chievo respectively.
Cagaliari picked up an important three points in their battle against relegation thanks to a 3-0 win over Catania at the Stadio Nereo Rocco.
The Sardinians, playing their second game in Friulia-Venezia Giulia due to problems with their Sant'Elia home, took the lead through Thiago Ribeiro in the 21st minute.
Chilean striker, Mauricio Pinilla doubled Cagliari's lead on 79 minutes and Victor Ibarbo added a third deep into injury time to take them six points clear of the drop zone.
Atalanta also did their survival chances no harm with a 1-0 win over Chievo.
Maximiliano Moralez's stunning long-range strike 18 minutes from time sent them eight points clear of third from bottom Lecce, who are away at Napoli on Wednesday.
