Serie A Matchday 19 Roundup

Olof Melberg (pictured/Reuters) comes up big for Juventus scoring his first goal at the club, and rescuing a point after the Bianconeri fell behind to Lazio in the first 25 mins off an exquisitely taken free kick by Cristian Ledesma.

Earlier in the day scudetto leaders Inter lost 1 - 3 away to Atalanta. Surely this was on the minds of the JUVE players who gave up a rare opportunity of shortening Inter’s lead further, claiming only a single point with the draw against Lazio.

Inter manager Mourinho takes the blame for dopo il K.O Bergamo (after the K.O. in Bergamo)headlines at La Gazzetta dello Sport this morning.

Elsewhere in Serie A, Roma would rely on a goal in extra time by Julio Baptista against Torino to hand the captial side victory and steal all 3 points from the relegation zone northerners.
