The former Milan favourite Roberto Donadoni dealt his former club's title ambitions a blow yesterday when the club he now coaches, Livorno, pulled off a famous home win over the Italian champions.

The former Milan favourite Roberto Donadoni dealt his former club's title ambitions a blow yesterday when the club he now coaches, Livorno, pulled off a famous home win over the Italian champions.

The victory, earned by a goal from Corrado Colombo, was sufficient to see off Milan and allow Juventus to stretch their lead to five points by beating Brescia 2-0. It could hardly have been a better weekend for Juve, whose position was further secured by a 2-0 defeat for third-placed Udinese at home to Reggina.

Internazionale preserved their 19-game unbeaten record in Serie A this season as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Chievo on Saturday.

The German Federation will hold an emergency board meeting today following the resignation of a referee accused of fixing a match and betting on the result. Robert Hoyzer, who has denied the allegations, is suspected of betting on the first-round German Cup tie between Hamburg and the regional league side SC Paderborn last August.

Hamburg took a 2-0 lead but lost 4-2 after Hoyzer sent off the striker Emile Mpenza in the first half for insulting him and awarded two penalties to the regional league side.
