Serie A - Week 33: Saturday Review

Fiorentina snatched a 2-2 draw against Inter to put the Nerazzurri's lead at the top of Serie A under threat, and Parma stunned Napoli to win a five-goal thriller.

Fiorentina 2-2 Inter
Inter could lose their place at the top of Serie A on Sunday with only five games to go after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Fiorentina. Keirrison put Fiorentina ahead after 11 minutes but the Nerazzurri turned things around with two goals in six minutes in the last 15 minutes from Diego Milito and Samuel Eto'o. But Per Kroldrup brought the Viola back to terms within 60 seconds, a goal which throws the Scudetto race wide open, leaving Jose Mourinho's side just two points ahead of Roma at the top of the table, with the capital club hosting Atalanta tomorrow. Third-placed AC Milan could also move to within a point of their city rivals with a home win over Catania.

Napoli 2-3 Parma
Parma came from behind to stun Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo to move back into the hunt for a place in Europe next season, denting the Partenopei's chances of qualifying for the Champions League. Fabio Quagliarella put the hosts ahead early on, but goals from Luca Antonelli and Antonio Lucarelli turned the game on its head in the space of five second-half minutes. Marek Hamsik brought Napoli level after 78 minutes, but they then lost Quagliarella to a red card before Luis Jimenez bagged a winner to take Parma above Genoa into ninth position - three points behind sixth-placed Napoli.
