Lazio take spoils in Rome derby

S.S. Lazio moved third in Serie A after emerging 2-1 victors against AS Roma in the capital derby, with Udinese Calcio being held to a goalless draw at home to Atalanta BC.

S.S Lazio climbed up to third after beating AS Roma 2-1 in their second capital derby triumph of the season, while Udinese Calcio could only manage a goalless draw with Atalanta BC.

Roma were left facing an uphill task with just seven minutes gone as goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg was sent off for tripping Miroslav Klose in the area, and they promptly fell behind when Hernanes converted the ensuing penalty. Parity was restored six minutes later when Fabio Borini prodded home from close range, but the visitors notched the decisive third goal through Stefano Mauri (61) before losing Lionel Scaloni to a late red card.

UEFA Champions League hopefuls SSC Napoli claimed their fourth consecutive league win with a 2-1 victory at struggling Parma FC. Ubiquitous duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi found the net either side of Cristian Zaccardo’s 77th-minute equaliser to close the gap to three points on fourth-placed Udinese, who failed to overcome Atalanta.

FC Internazionale Milano ended a run of four straight league defeats, coming from behind to draw 2-2 with Calcio Catania. First-half strikes from Alejandro Gómez and Mariano Izco put the visitors in control, before Diego Forlán (71) and Diego Militio (80) gained a point for Claudio Ranieri's side.

Elsewhere, ACF Fiorentina cruised to a 2-0 win against AC Cesena, while AC Siena eased their relegation fears by beating Cagliari Calcio 3-0 and Bologna FC moved six points clear of the drop zone after edging Novara Calcio 1-0. Meanwhile, Giuseppe Sculli secured a late point for Genoa CFC to deny US Lecce a third successive win in a 2-2 draw.
