Inter close on Lazio after Parma humbling

Serie A returned to action with a glut of goals as FC Internazionale Milano hit five against Parma FC and AC Siena stunned ten-man S.S. Lazio with a 4-0 victory.

There were goals galore in Italy's two top-flight matches as FC Internazionale Milano hit five against Parma FC and AC Siena stunned ten-man S.S. Lazio with four unanswered strikes.

Inter moved to within a point of Lazio as their recovery from a poor start to the season continued against Parma. First-half efforts by Diego Milito either side of Thiago Motta's strike helped the Nerazzurri on their way to a fifth successive league victory, which was settled beyond all doubt once Giampaolo Pazzini had made it 4-0 early in the second period. Marco Faraoni completed the scoring 12 minutes from time.

Earlier, fourth-placed Lazio unexpectedly lost 4-0 at Siena, who also raced into a three-goal half-time lead thanks to Mattia Destro's 11th-minute opener and two penalties by Emanuele Calaiò. The award of the second spot-kick resulted in stand-in goalkeeper Albano Bizzarri being dismissed and third-choice custodian Juan Pablo Carrizo was powerless to prevent the Bianceleste conceding Destro's second goal (81) of the evening.
