Roma slumped to their fourth successive Serie A defeat after going down 2-0 at Juventus, piling on more pressure on coach Luciano Spalletti. Earlier, an added-time strike earned Inter a last-gasp 3-2 victory at Reggina after the home side had hit back from 2-0 down to draw level.
JUVENTUS 2-0 ROMA
Alessandro Del Piero inspired Juventus to victory over Roma at Turin's Stadio Olimpico, lifting the Bianconeri to fifth and leaving their opponents struggling just above the bottom three in Serie A. The Italy striker scored a stunning free-kick after 38 minutes before providing the second goal for Marco Marchionni three minutes into the second half. That was enough to make it four wins in a row for Claudio Ranieri's side, leaving Roma reeling on the back of five successive defeats and their coach Luciano Spalletti fearing for his job.
REGGINA 2-3 INTER
Ivan Cordoba's late winner sent Inter back to the top of the table after basement side Reggina had threatened a shock comeback at the Stadio Oreste Granillo. The visitors had established a two-goal lead with first-half strikes from Sisenado Maicon and Patrick Vieira. But Reggina hit back with strikes from Francesco Cozza and Franco Brienza either side of half-time to heighten the prospect of an upset. Cordoba, however, scored in stoppage time to spare Inter's blushes.
