Serie A - Week 3: Saturday Review

Lazio 0-2 JuventusJuventus maintained their 100 per cent start to the new Serie A season with a 2-0 win at Lazio, as AC Milan endured a frustrating stalemate at Livorno.

Lazio 0-2 Juventus
Perfect records were on the line at the Stadio Olimpico as Lazio welcomed Juventus to the Italian capital and it was the hosts who wilted after slipping to a 2-0 defeat. A tense first half produced no goals and it was not until the 72nd minute that the deadlock was broken as on-loan defender Martin Caceres drilled a ferocious half-volley past Fernando Muslera on his debut. And in stoppage-time, David Trezeguet made certain Juve, who lost new signing Diego to an early injury, claimed a third win from as many games as Lazio dropped their first points of the season.

Livorno 0-0 MilanLivorno 0-0 Milan
Milan failed to respond positively to the recent derby drubbing by Inter as Leonardo's side could only muster a 0-0 draw at newly-promoted Livorno. Summer signing Klaas Jan Huntelaar was handed his first start by Leonardo, but the Dutch striker failed to make much of an impact, as was the case with Ronaldinho. The closest Milan came to a goal was in the second half when substitute Andrea Pirlo rattled a free-kick against the crossbar, with Alfonso De Lucia beaten.
