With Empoli and Torino drawing 0-0 at the top of the league in Group A, it was of huge importance that Juventus won at home to Carpi, giving them the chance to move into second place.
They did so, convincingly. A 3-1 win with two goals from debutant Sergio Buenacasa and a single strike from the equally brilliant Edoardo Ceria.
At the bottom of the league, Genoa remain winless after losing 2-0 to Spezia this weekend.
Bologna 0-1 Parma, Cesena 1-1 Modena, Empoli 0-0 Torino, Juventus 3-1 Carpi, Sampdoria 3-0 Novara, Sassuolo 4-0 Siena, Spezia 2-0 Genoa.
Inter almost threw away a 3-0 lead against Cagliari this weekend but managed to hold out for the win to jump up to fourth in the table.
Federico Bonazzoli got the scoring underway after 12 minutes before Marios Oikonomou put the ball in his own net just after the half an hour mark to double Inter’s lead.
Lorenzo Tassi netted from the spot to put Inter 3-0 up but then goals from Simone Solinas and Matteo Saias threatened to put Cagliari back in the game.
After a nervy last 15 minutes however, Inter held on and went away with all three points.
Cagliari 2-3 Inter, Pescara 0-0 Cittadella, Atalanta 3-2 Virtus Lanciano, Brescia 2-2 Varese, Chievo 2-0 Udinese, Padova 1-1 Verona, Milan 2-0 Ternana.
