Gem from Baggio
Monday 13 March 1995
Roberto Baggio marked his return from injury with a goal as Juventus beat Foggia 2-0 to maintain their Serie A lead. Baggio, playing his first league match since 27 November, bent in a free-kick from a difficult angle in the second half, after Fabrizio Ravanelli had given Juventus the lead nine minutes earlier.
With 11 games remaining, the Turin club are four points clear of Parma, who kept up their challenge by beating Sampdoria 3-2 with two goals from Gianfranco Zola, who also had a penalty saved by Walter Zenga, Sampdoria's veteran goalkeeper.
Milan, the defending champions, defeated Padua with a goal from their in-form striker, Marco Simone, to move into third place. Daniel Fonseca's first goal since 27 November earned Roma a 1-1 draw with Torino to keep them in fourth place.
An injury-time winner from the Nigerian striker, Nwankwo Kanu, ensured Ajax retained the leadership of the Dutch First Division yesterday, with a 2-1 win over Go-Ahead Eagles.
The victory put them two points clear of Roda, who could only manage a dull goalless draw with Sparta, while PSV Eindhoven stay in third place.
