Inter left it late to win a seven-goal thriller over bottom side Siena to go further clear at the top of Serie A, while 10-man Roma edged Chievo to move fourth.
Inter 4-3 Siena
Wesley Sneijder and Walter Samuel scored late goals as Inter twice came from behind to claim a thrilling 4-3 victory over Siena in the top-versus-bottom clash at the San Siro. Massimo Maccarone's swerving effort fired Siena into an 18th-minute lead, but Inter were level six minutes later when Sneijder found Diego Milito who drilled in. Sneijder curled in a second from a 36th-minute free-kick but Siena responded immediately as Albin Ekdal ghosted in at the back post to drill in a leveller. Maccarone scored his second after 65 minutes but Sneijder scored his second free-kick after 88 minutes and Samuel hit a stoppage-time winner as Inter and Jose Mourinho's long unbeaten home records remained intact. Siena had Cribari sent off as their frustrations boiled over after the final whistle.
Roma 1-0 Chievo
A first-minute goal from Daniele De Rossi was enough to give 10-man Roma a 1-0 victory over Chievo which moves them up to fourth in the Serie A table. Rossi headed in from a corner to give the hosts the lead at the Stadio Olimpico, but they had goalkeeper Doni sent off after he handled the ball outside the area after coming out as Elvis Abbruscato charged through on goal. Chievo were unable to make the most of their numerical advantage and Abbruscato and Luca Ariati wasted chances as the Giallorossi secured the win.
