Internazionale lost their perfect record when they drew 1-1 at home with Lazio last night but they remain top of Serie A. The visitors went ahead after 35 minutes through the Czech Pavel Nedved but Ronaldo equalised with a penalty six minutes later.

Juventus came from behind to beat Fiorentina 2-1 with goals from Filippo Inzaghi and Alessandro Del Piero.

The Argentinian Abel Balbo scored a hat-trick which included his 100th Serie A goal in Roma's 6-2 defeat of Napoli at the Olympic Stadium. Bologna's Roberto Baggio, omitted from Cesare Maldini's squad for Italy's match against England, was sent off in the goalless draw at Piacenza.

Milan claimed their first league victory of the season at the fifth attempt when they won 1-0 at newly-promoted Empoli, thanks to a second-half goal by the Swede Andreas Andersson.

The Barcelona coach Louis van Gaal was barracked by the Nou Camp crowd before the only goal of the second half, by Luis Enrique, gave the Spanish leaders a 3-2 win against Tenerife.

Fabrizio Ravanelli's debut for Marseille had to be put on hold because he had flu but the French club still won 2-0 against Toulouse.

Bayern Munich maintained the pressure on the leaders Kaiserslautern with a 3-2 win at Bochum while Borussia Dortmund slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Arminia Bielfeld. The European champions are now 16th in the Bundesliga. The former Leeds striker Tony Yeboah scored his first goal for Hamburg in a 5-2 defeat at VfB Stuttgart.
