Ronaldinho rescues Milan as Juve crash

AC Milan's uninspiring start to the season continued as they picked up only a point from their trip to struggling Atalanta. Leonardo's team needed an 83rd-minute goal from Ronaldinho to earn them a 1-1 draw against a team who played more than 50 minutes of the contest with ten men.

Genoa returned to winning ways after a three-game drought with a 3-1 victory at Bologna. Houssine Kharja and Giuseppe Sculli gave the visitors a 2-0 lead at the interval, but they lost Giandomenico Mesto to a red card early in the second half and the home team responded. Marco Di Vaio pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in the 85th minute, but Alberto Zapater sealed the win in the last minute.
Brace for Totti
Francesco Totti struck twice as Roma came from behind to beat Napoli 2-1. The Roma captain scored his first in the 37th minute to cancel out Ezequiel Lavezzi's opener. Totti then grabbed the winner shortly after the hour mark.
Cagliari's search for a first home victory in Serie A this season goes on after they lost 2-1 to Chievo.

Siena failed to make the most of a golden opportunity to claim their first home win of the season as they were held to a goalless draw by basement boys Livorno.
