Inter recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Bari in a game which featured three penalties, while Cagliari thrashed Livorno 3-0 to move up to sixth in Serie A.
Bari 2-2 Inter
Bari had drawn with champions Inter at the San Siro on the opening day of the season but seemed set to go one better and inflict a rare Serie A defeat on Jose Mourinho's side when on-loan Brazilian forward Paulo Vitor Barreto scored twice from the spot on 60 and 63 minutes. That merely served to spur the visitors into action, however, and they reduced their arrears shortly after through Goran Pandev. Diego Milito then chalked up his 12th league goal of the campaign with the third spot-kick of the match after 74 minutes. The Nerazzurri are now nine points clear of AC Milan, though the Rossoneri have two games in hand and the two Milanese clubs meet for the Derby della Madonnina next weekend.
Cagliari 3-0 Livorno
Joaquín Larrivey scored twice as Cagliari climbed to sixth with a 3-0 home victory against Livorno. The Argentinian striker headed the Sardinian outfit in front on three minutes, his effort from Andrea Cossu's free-kick squirming through the legs of goalkeeper Alfonso De Luca. His second arrived five minutes after the break when he lobbed De Luca while substitute Jeda made it three just after the hour mark with a far-post header following a knock-back by Andrea Lazzari.
