Italy round-up: Inter stunned by Udinese win

Leaders Internazionale FC missed the chance to extend their lead as they were beaten 2-1 by Udinese Calcio.

League leaders Internazionale FC missed the chance to extend their advantage at the top of the Serie A table when they suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Udinese Calcio on Saturday.

Stunning equaliser
Despite taking the lead through striker Christian Vieri in only the third minute, UEFA Champions League contenders Inter were pegged back when Danish international midfield player Martin Jørgensen stunned the home supporters in the Giuseppe Meazza stadium with a 25th-minute equaliser.

Muzzi strikes winner
It got even worse for Inter, who could have moved six points clear at the top of the league had they won this match, as Udinese striker Roberto Muzzi put the away side in front ten minutes after half-time and, in spite of the home side's efforts to find a way back into the game, Udinese held on for a valuable victory that moves them further away from the bottom of the table.

Roma thwarted
Saturday's other game saw Inter’s fellow Champions League participants AS Roma held 1-1 at struggling Piacenza FC. Antonio Cassano put the away side in front in the 26th minute, getting on the end of a Christain Panucci header from a Cafu corner. Piacenza looked to have missed their best chance of getting back on level terms when Dario Hubner put a penalty wide five minutes before half-time.

Maresca equalises
However, a stunning 75th-minute free-kick from Enzo Maresca meant the visitors were denied the win that would have seen them close the gap on the leaders, although they do move up one place in the table to fifth. Piacenza lie 13th.
