Parma hardly played like potential champions, and they rarely looked like improving on their poor record against Roma, one point from three matches.
Hassler swung a free-kick on to Antonio Comi's head for the first goal after 19 minutes, and after hitting the crossbar with another on the stroke of half- time, he picked out Massimiliano Cappioli with yet another free-kick 16 minutes from the end and he wrapped it up.
An opportunist goal volleyed in by Florin Raducioiu gave Milan a victory that lifted them to 21 points from 14 games. Sampdoria were stung by a first- minute goal from Genoa's Gennaro Ruotolo, but David Platt equalised and they hung on after having their captain, Roberto Mancini, sent off for a foul.
Deportivo La Coruna edged a point clear of Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league, where the significant action took place on Saturday night. A last- minute strike by the Brazilian Bebeto gave La Coruna the points against Racing Santander, while Barcelona needed a Ronald Koeman penalty early in the second half to earn a 2-2 draw with Logrones.Reuse content
