Serie A Matchday 13 always promised to deliver real excitement, and two of the three obvious standout fixtures went against the odds as Juventus won the Derby d’Italia and Lazio edged the Derby della Capitale. Juventus beat Inter 2-0 in Turin after Lazio had beaten AS Roma 1-0 in the Eternal City.
Previously, on Saturday, Napoli had come from behind in Bergamo to beat Atalanta 2-1 and extend their lead at the top of the Serie A table.
Elsewhere, AC Milan won 2-1 late on against Spezia thanks to acrobatic heroics from Olivier Giroud, and Fiorentina won away at Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon.
There’s now no time to rest for Serie A’s sides as they prepare for a midweek round of fixtures, with those being the penultimate games before things break up for the November-December World Cup.
