Italy round-up: Rivaldo lifts Milan to top spot

Rivaldo was on target as AC Milan usurped Internazionale FC at the top of Serie A after beating Atalanta BC.

Rivaldo was on target as AC Milan usurped city rivals Internazionale FC on goal difference at the top of Serie A after cruising to a 4-1 victory against Atalanta BC on Sunday.

Pirlo double
The Brazilian international opened the scoring in Bergamo and although Luigi Sala levelled the scores, Jon Dahl Tomasson restored Milan's lead and a double from Andrea Pirlo gave the scoreline an emphatic ring.

Baggio beaten
Roberto Baggio made an unhappy return to Bologna FC as his Brescia Calcio side were beaten 3-0 at the Renato Dall'Ara. Third-placed Bologna's Julio Ricardo Cruz scored two late goals to seal victory after Tomas Locatelli had put them on their way in the first half.

Magnificent Magallanes
Elsewhere, Torino Calcio picked up their first points of the season after Federico Magallanes' 18th-minute strike gave them a 1-0 victory against AC Chievo Verona while David Marcelo Pizarro's 51st-minute penalty handed Udinese Calcio a crucial three points against fellow strugglers Reggina Calcio.

Super substitute
Enrico Chiesa came off the bench to score twice on his S.S. Lazio debut as the home side defeated struggling AC Perugia 3-0. Simone Inzaghi had put fourth-placed Lazio in front on the eleven-minute mark.

Como hold Piacenza
Piacenza FC defender Giuseppe Cardone's own goal handed struggling Como Calcio a share of the spoils. Cardone diverted the ball past team-mate Matteo Guardalben on the stroke of half-time to cancel out Nicola Caccia's 28th-minute opener.

Late game
Modena FC came from behind to beat Parma AC 2-1 in the late game. Visitors Parma went ahead just before half-time through Adrian Mutu, only for Andrea Fabbrini to level midway through the second period. Diomansy Kamara scored the winner eight minutes from time to inflict Parma's first Serie A defeat of the season.
