Serie A Week 4: Saturday Review

Antonio Di Natale continued his incredible form for Udinese with two magnificent goals to defeat Reggina, while Milan were held for a third consecutive 1-1 draw in Serie A against Parma at the San Siro.

Antonio Di Natale inspired Udinese to all three points against Reggina with two sublime strikes worthy of winning any game. The Italy striker curled a fantastic opener lobbing Andrea Campagnolo from a tight angle after only five minutes to put the hosts in front, before an exquisite volley just after the hour-mark wrapped up victory. And although Reggina twice hit the woodwork, they could find no way past a tough Udinese defence and crashed to their second consecutive defeat.

Milan drew for the third successive time in Serie A as Parma took a point from the San Siro. The Rossoneri began their Champions League defence in midweek with a home win over Benfica, and after Filippo Inzaghi hit the post on 27 minutes tonight, they took the lead late in the first half when the striker's shot was parried by Nicola Pavarini but Paolo Castellini's clearance deflected in off Clarence Seedorf. However the hosts were unable to hang on for the win, Parma equalised with 17 minutes left as Andrea Pisanu volleyed in Reginaldo's cross.

The result leaves the European champions still three points behind leaders Roma, who host Juventus on Sunday afternoon.
