Inter end Juve's unbeaten run

Rome, November 4, 2012, Reuters:

Milito brace settles the Italian Derby

Juventus' Serie A unbeaten run came to an end after 49 matches on Saturday when Diego Milito's double helped Inter Milan win 3-1 in a pulsating ‘Derby of Italy’ clash in Turin.

The win leaves second-placed Inter one point behind champions and league leaders Juve and is a sign that Andrea Stramaccioni's side are genuine challengers for the title.
Juve scored straight from the kick off when Kwadwo Asamoah latched onto Mirko Vucinic's through ball and scuffed his shot into the path of Arturo Vidal, who gleefully tapped home from the edge of the six-yard box after 19 seconds.

Television replays showed Asamoah was offside when he collected Vucinic's pass but the linesman's flag stayed down.


After wasting two golden opportunities, Inter finally got the equaliser just before the hour mark. Milito was clearly pulled back in the box by Marchisio as Inter worked a smart free-kick routine close to goal and the forward stepped up to smash the resulting penalty past Gianluigi Buffon.

The Argentine piled on the agony for the champions with a quarter of an hour left when Fredy Guarin's powerful shot was pushed straight into his path by Buffon, who could only watch as Milito gobbled up the chance to make it 2-1 to the visitors. Inter put the match to bed with a minute to go.  Palacio collected Nagatomo's deft through pass and slipped the ball under Buffon.

Earlier, AC Milan's Bojan Krkic scored his first goal for the club as they cruised to a 5-1 home win over lowly Chievo.

Barca sparkle

Barcelona equalled the record for the most points after 10 games in La Liga and pulled three clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table by beating promoted Celta Vigo 3-1 on Saturday.

David Villa netted and created a goal for Jordi Alba after Adriano had opened the scoring  as Tito Vilanova's unbeaten side moved on to 28 points, matching the previous best set by Real Madrid.

Champions Real climbed above Malaga into third when  Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria and new signings Michael Essien and Luka Modric struck in a 4-0 home win over Real Zaragoza.

City stutter

Manchester City missed the chance to move level on points at the top of English Premier League after drawing 0-0 at West Ham United.

United are a point clear of Chelsea with 24 from 10 games. Chelsea conceded a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Swansea City.
