Roma je, posle pobede u gradskom derbiju protiv Lacija, bez većih problema uzeal tri boda protiv Lečea. Crnogorski reprezentativac Mirko Vučinić je u 11. minutu posle dodavanja Frančeska Totija doveo Rimljane u vođstvo. Bio je to njegov peti gol u sezoni.

Brazilski štoper Žuan je u 38. minutu povisio na 2:0, a sve dileme u vezi sa pobednikom otklonio je Toti pogotkom u 49. minutu – kapiten ’Vučice’ je na asistenciju Matea Brigija matirao Benusija. To je prvi trijumf Rone na gostovanjima u Kalču ove sezone.

Bolonja je na Renato Dal’ Ari došla u vođstvo u 20. minutu golom Marka di Vaja. Bivši centarfor Parme i Juventusa je realizovao kontranapad domaćih i dobro dodavanje Valijanija. Bilo je solidnih prilika na obe strane, ali golova nije bilo sve do završnice. Onda je Davide Sućiu 92. minutu izjednačio rezultat i spasao Siciljance trećeg uzastopnog poraza.

Lacio očigledno pošušta posle furioznog početka prvenstva. Đenoa je na Olimpiku povela preko Dijega Milita u u 69. minutu, kome je to bio 11. ligaški gol. Prethodno je Argentinac u 53. minutu promašio penal, nakon što je Lihštajner oborio Skulija u šesnaestercu. Bod Lacijalima doneo je Osman Dabo u 80. minutu.

Srpski internacionalac Aleksandar Kolarov igrao je svih 90 minuta za ’nebeskoplave’. Bio je to njegov sedmi nastup u Seriji A ove sezone. Boško Janković nije bio ni među rezervama Đenoe.

U Napulju su Marek Hamšik i Ezekijel Laveci dva puta dovodili Napoli u vođstvo protiv Kaljarija, ali su Lopez (56. min) i Danijele Konti u 90. minutu oba puta anulirali prednost i odneli bod na Sardiniju.

Roberto Stelone je u 25. minutu dao vodeći gol za Torino protiv Milana, ali su Pato i Ronaldinjo do poluvremena preokrenuli rezultat. Konačni rezultati postavio je Alesandro Rosina u 78. minutu iz opravdano dosuđenog penala.

Brazilian Show In Torino Not Enough For Milan

Generalna — Autor nikola22 @ 01:40


Torino hosted Milan at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino tonight in the last Serie A game of the weekend. Milan knew that after Inter's win in the derby D'Italia, they would have to win or lose serious ground to the current Italian leaders.

The Rossoneri were eager to produce a convincing performance after they struggled and then controversially beat Chievo 1-0 last week. Carlo Ancelotti’s side were galvanised by the return from injury of Andrea Pirlo. Torino were also desperate for some points this weekend as their 3-2 defeat at Catania last week left them just three points outside the relegation zone.

First Half

Milan got the play underway, with Andrea Pirlo in the starting eleven for the first time since his injury forced him out of action. Milan began the match in confident fashion, with skilful touches and accurate passing displaying the visitor’s superiority over the home side.

In the fourth minute Milan created a good chance after a team move, but Francesco Pratali was on hand to stop the danger. Torino’s star player Alessandro Rosina threatened a few times in the early exchanges, and was clearly the Granata’s most bright player from the get go.

Milan were keen to take shots from long range, and numerous players attempted to fool Sereni from distance. Torino followed the trend of the match and began to threaten with shots from outside the box. A long range effort from Blerim Dzemaili clipped the top of the bar and sent a wave of excitement around the stadium.

Torino shocked the visitors on 24 minutes by opening the scoring with a header from Roberto Stellone. Rosina’s creativity was the catalyst for the goal, with a fine cross from the left being met by a glancing header from Stellone to put the ball into the back of the net.

Milan responded three minutes later with an equaliser from Brazilian wonder kid Alexandre Pato. A great pass from Gattuso was controlled by the youngster and swept past Sereni into the Torino goal.

Milan were determined to go ahead in the encounter, and so they did on 34 minutes when a free kick was buried into the back of the net by Ronaldinho. A foul on Kaka at the edge of the area handed Milan a golden opportunity which they did not waste, as the Brazilian number 80 curved the ball beautifully into the top corner.

Milan continued to attack and press for yet another goal, but the Torino defence did well to keep them at bay and after a minute of injury time the referee sent the teams into the change rooms with the score at 2-1 for the Rossoneri.

Second Half

The second half began with Milan putting the home side under pressure and dominating the midfield play with Gattuso and Pirlo working hard to win and retain possession. Within two minutes of the restart and great run from Pato nearly resulted in his second of the match, but his eventual shot from a tight angle went over the bar.

Two minutes later Dzemaili threatened to equalise with a wonderful strike from outside the area, but his effort went agonizingly wide of the post. Torino became dangerous and were constantly attacking and putting the Rossoneri in difficulty, but the Milan defence and the reflexes of Christian Abbiati were able to hold off the determined Granata offence, albeit with a bit of luck.

The pace of the play remained high for long periods of the second half, and a confident Torino constantly pushed forward in search of the equaliser, with Milan threatening with quick counter attacks and the corners that resulted.

In the 65th minute great passing play between Brazilians Kaka and Pato almost got the younger of the two on the score sheet again, but Sereni stood strong to deny the 19-year-old. Torino’s pressure was admirable, and the Granata kept Milan on the defensive for the majority of the second half.

In the 71st minute a dangerous cross from Rosina was floated into the Milan area and bounced invitingly along the six yard box before Ronaldinho cleared the danger. Five minutes later Torino were awarded a penalty after a cross from Rosina hit the outstretched arm of Kakha Kaladze. Rosino converted the spot kick, sending Abbiati the wrong way and making it 2-2 at the Olimpico.

Torino kept the pressure on the visiting Rossoneri, and the last ten minutes proved to be a nervous period for Carlo Ancelotti as an avalanche of Granata attacks needed determined defending and goalkeeping to keep the ball from bulging the net.

Milan were lucky not to concede in the last ten minutes of the match with a fiery Torino desperate to score the winner, but it was not to be, and a few minutes after a Ronaldinho free kick ballooned up into the stands the whistle was blown and the game ended with the score at two goals a piece.

Ancelotti: We Should Have Had A Penalty

Milan lost further ground on their cross-town rivals Inter Milan earlier tonight, as they were held 2-2 at the Olimpico in Turin.

Roberto Stellone opened the scoring for the home side, before Alexandre Pato and Ronaldinho both got their names on the score sheet within a six minute period, leaving Milan ahead at the half time interval.

Alessandro Rosina was the hero for the Granata however, as he successfully converted a spot kick with less than 15 minutes of playing time remaining.

The boss of the Rossoneri, Carlo Ancelotti, was rightfully displeased after the contest, as he realized that it was a great opportunity lost for his side.

“We did well to take the lead after Torino’s first goal, however we could have managed the second a little better,” Ancelotti said.

“We needed to be more compact, but we weren’t, so we suffered as a result,” he added.

Ancelotti then went on to comment about the penalty awarded to Torino late in the contest: “it was there to be given, and the referee rewarded Toro.

“However, we had the chance to go 3-1 up previously, had we received the penalty we deserved.

“(Francesco) Pratali struck the ball with his arm in the area, following a shot by Ronaldinho – added the boss. I think this should have been a penalty.”

The latest draw is Milan’s third on the road this term, with similar results coming at lowly Cagliari (0-0) and Lecce (1-1) earlier in the campaign.

The Rossoneri are now three points off the pace set by Inter, following their latest slip-up away from home.

Player Ratings: Torino 2-2 Milan

Generalna — Autor nikola22 @ 01:24


Abbiati: 6.0- Made a good double save on Bianchi and Stellone in the 54th minute and did all that was asked of him tonight.  

Jankulovski 6.0-A subdued effort from the Czech defender who did not muster up one of his best performances tonight.  

Maldini: 6.0- The old Italian warhorse was caught out of position on more than one occasion and had trouble containing Rosina and Stellone.  

Kaladze: 4.0-  The defender who looks like a character straight out of a Doestoevsky novel was the goat of the evening as he was beaten to the ball by Stellone who opened the scoring and then handled the ball inside of his own penalty area which set up Rosina’s equaliser.  

Bonera: 6.0- Was embarrassed by Rosina on a number of occasions and is the weak link in the Milan defence.  

Gattuso: 7.5- The Calabrese pitbull showed off his offensive attributes with a great through ball that led to Pato’s goal in the 29th minute.  

Pirlo: 6.0- Looked a bit rusty after a long injury layoff but by no means looked out of place tonight.  

Seedorf: 7.0- The smooth passing Dutchman directed traffic for the first 60 minutes but lost effectiveness as the match wore on.

Kaka: 6.0-
Gave the Toro defence some fits in the first half but faded away and had an extremely quiet second half. Should be ashamed of himself for his swan dive in the penalty area that earned him a yellow card in extra time.  

Ronaldinho: 7.5- The signing of the summer so far gave the Rossoneri the lead in the 34th minute with a world class free kick.  

Pato: 8.0-
Blasted a wicked shot past Sereni in the 29th minute just four minutes after Stellone had opened the scoring and was a nuisance all evening long.  






Sereni: 6.0- He was beaten by two world class finishes in the first half and was rarely called into action in the second.  

Pratali: 6.0- Lucky he did not concede a penalty in the 54th minute when he blocked Ronaldinho’s shot with his arm.  

Natali: 6.0- Had no answer for the Brazilian attacking triumvirate in the first 45 minutes but rebounded to have a decent second half. 

Rubin: 7.0- Pushed forward on many occasions and was a real threat on the left flank. Tackled well and was never caught out in position.  

Diana: 5.5- Could not latch onto Stellone’s header in the 71st minute when he was all alone in the six yard box.  

Barone: 6.0- Gave up the free kick that led to Ronaldinho’s goal and was substituted off in the second half.  

Dzemaili: 7.5- The Swiss international was the architect of the Toro attack and had three different chances to find the back of the net.

Rosina: 8.0- He as a real live wire this evening and was the most dangerous player on the field setting up Stellone’s goal and sending Abbiati the wrong way from the penalty spot.  

Colombo: 5.0- His mix up with Stellone in the second half cost Toro a golden opportunity to bring the match on level terms  

Stellone: 7.5- Opened the scoring with a well placed header that beat Abbiati and was a real threat all night long.  

Bianchi: 5.0- He has been a major disappointment this season and was the worst player on the field tonight.
