Roma rampant against Bologna, Juve edge derby

AS Roma extended their perfect start to the Serie A season with a commanding 5-0 defeat of Bologna FC, while Juventus edged the Turin derby 1-0 against Torino FC.

AS Roma made it six wins from six in Serie A with a commanding 5-0 victory against Bologna FC, after Juventus saw off city rivals Torino FC 1-0 and FC Internazionale Milano were pegged back at Cagliari Calcio.

Alessandro Florenzi put Roma ahead with just eight minutes gone and summer signing Gervinho soon doubled the deficit, later adding a second in between strikes from Medhi Benatia and Adem Ljajić. That lifted Rudi Garcia's side two points clear of SSC Napoli and Juventus, who conjured the only goal of their derby against Torino when Paul Pogba tapped in nine minutes after the interval, Carlos Tévez's header having bounced back off the crossbar.

Also on Sunday, Inter looked on course to draw level on points with the Bianconeri when Mauro Icardi struck 15 minutes from time, but a late Radja Nainggolan reply earned Cagliari a share of the spoils. SS Lazio also slipped up, surrendering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at bottom club US Sassuolo Calcio.

Elsewhere, two goals from Germán Denis steered Atalanta BC to a 2-0 victory at home to Udinese Calcio, while Calcio Catania prevailed by the same scoreline against AC Chievo Verona. As for Hellas Verona FC, they consigned AS Livorno Calcio to a 2-1 reverse.
