Inter held at Palermo
Inter Milan's hopes of a fifth successive Serie A title suffered a setback this evening as Jose Mourinho's side were held 1-1 at Palermo.
The Nerazzurri, perhaps fatigued by their UEFA Champions League heroics at Chelsea in midweek, could now be overtaken by city rivals AC Milan tomorrow when the Rossoneri take on Napoli at the San Siro.
Diego Milito fired Inter ahead from the penalty spot after ten minutes, but Edinson Cavani levelled after 24 minutes and neither side could find a winner. The result left Inter two points clear of Milan, having played a game more.
Three for Vucinic
Third-placed Roma are four points adrift of Inter after Mirko Vucinic netted a hat-trick in a 4-2 win over Udinese. Luca Toni fired the Giallorossi in front after 14 minutes and Vucinic doubled the lead with his first after 24 minutes.
However, Palermo hit back with two goals from Antonio Di Natale, one of which came from the penalty spot. But Vucinic restored the hosts' lead from the spot after 66 minutes and netted his third and Roma's fourth seven minutes from time.
Eighth-placed Fiorentina defeated seventh-placed Genoa 3-0, with goals from Mario Alberto Santana and El Khouma Babacar adding to a 73rd-minute penalty from Alberto Gilardino.
