ROME – The second day of the Italian Serie A soccer championship issued its verdicts. We are just at the beginning but it is already Juve-Inter at the top . The bianconeri are at full score just like the Nerazzurri of the former Antonio Conte. With them the Turin of Walter Mazzarri. The grenades are already in shape because they had to face six Europa League matches in the summer and today they have achieved a precious success on the Atalanta field. One of the funniest Rome derbies in recent years, with two goals and six stakes, ended in a draw. Lazio flies to four points while Roma, which is still an open site, stops at two. To keep Lazio company at four points, there are the Bologna of the warrior Sinisa Mihajlovic, the newly promoted Verona and the Genoa of Andreazzoli.
In a league where there are very few draws, Sampdoria, Cagliari , Lecce , Spal and Fiorentina are still at zero points .
Juventus beat Napoli at the last breath after a simply incredible match. Juventus started out great and reached 2-0 within 19 minutes. Danilo entered instead of the injured De Sciglio and scored after just 26 seconds of play on an assist from Douglas Costa. Four minutes later, Higuain dribbled Koulibaly and beat Meret with a very powerful right foot. At that point, Juve could have spread but Khedira ate a goal ahead of Meret and then hit the crossbar.
In the second half, at 62 ', Cristiano Ronaldo, at the first goal of the season in Serie A, seemed to have closed the game but Napoli approached the recovery differently thanks to the positive entry of Mario Rui and Lozano.
The match was reopened by a header from Manolas, following the Juventus defense's inattention, and shortly thereafter, Lozano's 3-2 reached the Serie A debut on another sleep of the rear of the champions of Italy in office.
Without Chiellini, Juventus is really struggling and Di Lorenzo scored the goal of 3 to 3, the first goal in Serie A with the uniform of Napoli, anticipating an inattentive De Ligt, still far from the best form.
When Napoli seemed to be the master of the match, Koulibaly thought of it with an unlucky own goal to give the three points to Juventus. The Napoli defender beat his goalkeeper with his shin against Pjanic's cross. Three points to Juve who takes the lead in Serie A with six points.
In the other advance of Saturday, Marco Giampaolo's Milan suffered but won the first three points of his management. The Rossoneri redeemed the Udine knockout by beating Brescia thanks to a goal from Calhanoglu on an assist from Suso. Piatek, surprisingly excluded from the initial formation of the Rossoneri, entered the second half in place of a good André Silva but failed to score.
Sunday was opened by the spectacular derby between Rome and Lazio. Kolarov took his advantage to the penalty spot but in the second half Luis Alberto drew the score on Immobile's assist. Pali for Zaniolo (two), Immobile, Correa, Lucas Leiva and Parolo. Afterwards, Antonio Conte's Inter suffered but won in Cagliari thanks to his strikers' goals. Lautaro Martinez scored on Sensi's cross and Lukaku scored on the penalty earned by Sensi with a Zidane roulette. In the middle, the momentary tie by Joao Pedro.
The Turin team won 3-2, in comeback, against Atalanta thanks to a paw from the "bomber" defender Izzo. The Nerazzurri did not serve a brace from Zapata. Successes of great value for Genoa and Verona that have hooked Lazio and Bologna to four points. Verona won in Lecce with goals from Pessina while Genoa won against Fiorentina thanks to goals from Zapata and Kouame. The round ends with Sassuolo's goleada against Sampdoria, with Berardi's hat-trick, and Parma's external success on the Udinese field with a Gervinho and English show.

Lazio-Roma 1-1, goal: Kolarov on penalties on 16 'and Luis Alberto on 58'.
The derby began with bad news for Roma. Zappacosta was injured in the warm-up and Fonseca had to change his tactical plans after studying the match with Florenzi for a whole week. After the knockout of Zappacosta, Florenzi returned full-back and Kluivert was placed on the field as a left striker.
The first chance to score was created by Lazio. Leiva kicked from outside the penalty area hit the post to Pau Lopez beaten. At 4 ', Zaniolo responded to Leiva by hitting the post with a sinister low shot that had beaten Strakosha.
At 15 ', Segej Milinkovic Savic stopped the ball with his hand giving the penalty kick to Roma. From eleven meters Kolarov did not make a mistake. The Serbian fullback has displaced Strakosha and scored his second goal in the derby since he wears the Giallorossi jersey (he had also scored for Roma with Lazio).
At 24 ', Immobile, forgotten by the defense of Rome, hit the post in front of Pau Lopez. At 25 ', Correa hit today's third pole of Lazio with a right-handed ride that surprised Pau Lopez. At 26 ', yet another pole arrives within a few minutes. Zaniolo tried to beat Strakosha with a powerful left that died on the pole.
The first half ended on the result of one to zero for Roma. At 47 ', Zaniolo tried the goal with a left turn that came out of a whisker. At 58 ', Luis Alberto drew the score. The action was born thanks to Milinkovic Savic who stole the ball from Kolarov, then the Serbian launched Immobile which was very good at serving a golden assist to Luis Alberto who did not fail what was little more than a penalty in movement.
At 85 minutes, Parolo struck the crossbar. The Lazio midfielder had kicked from the right and was stopped only by the wood to Pau Lopez beaten. At 91 ', the referee canceled the goal of the possible 2 to 1 to Lazio because the action came from an offside with the ball that was also out at the time of the cross. Lazzari, who scored, was in a regular position but the action was stopped sooner and for this the referee canceled the network. The derby ended on the result one by one.
Serie A, second day: Juventus-Napoli 4-3, goals: Danilo 15 ′, Higuain 19 ′, Cristiano Ronaldo 62 ′, Manolas 65 ′, Lozano 67 ′, Di Lorenzo 81 ′ and Koulibaly own goal 91 ′.
The first chance to score is for Juve. At 3 ', Cristiano Ronaldo blew up a powerful left over Matuidi's pocket, Meret saved himself with his fists. At 13 ', Allan kicked safely on an assist from Insigne but Szczesny pulled an incredible corner kick from the top hat.
At 15 ', De Sciglio is forced to leave the field due to injury. In his place Danilo entered the field and scored almost immediately. At 15 ', on a restart of Juventus, Douglas Costa was very good at serving Danilo who did not have great difficulty bagging in two steps. The Brazilian scored after 26 seconds from his entry into the field.
At 19 ', Higuain signed the doubling with an extraordinary play. The Argentinian striker dribbled Koulibaly and bagged into the net with a powerful right-footer. At 27 ', Higuain put Khedira in the goal with a brilliant touch but the Juventus midfielder fired on Meret. At 32 ', Khedira hit the crossbar with a conclusion that had beaten Meret. The first half ended on the result of two to zero for Juventus.
At the start of the second half, Napoli entered Mario Rui and Lozano (in Serie A debut) in place of Ghoulam and Insigne. At 62 ', Juventus blew up the Stadium with Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese striker scored with a left-footed shot from Douglas Costa. He then cheered controversially against the VAR for the goal he had canceled in Parma on the first day.
At 65 ', Manolas scored the goal of the Napoli flag, headed, on a cross by Mario Rui. At 67 ′, Lozano scored on the left from a cross by Zielinski. The Mexican striker was rather badly marked by De Ligt. At 68 ', Meret deflected Douglas Costa's powerful shot into the crossbar. At 81 ', Di Lorenzo drew the score by signing an incredible comeback.
The former Empoli player scored two passes from a cross by José Maria Callejon from the right. The Stadium was frozen. At 91 ', when Napoli seemed to have the game in hand, Koulibaly scored an own goal that was as unfortunate as it was incredible. On a Pjanic cross, Koulibaly hit the ball with his shin, beating his goalkeeper. The Napoli defender wanted to sweep the ball but gave the three points to the bianconeri. It's over, Juventus won 4-3 against Napoli at the Stadium.
Milan-Brescia 1-0, goal: Calhanoglu 12 '.
Milan went ahead at the first lunge, at 12 '. Cross from the right of Suso and Calhanoglu's winning header. The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder squashed his head into the net, nothing to do for Brescia's goalkeeper Joronen. At 20 ', Brescia came close to drawing with Bisoli. After a shot by Sabelli, the ball arrived in Bisoli but the Brescia player shot the stars from a good position. At 21 ', the rediscovered André Silva tried to "drop down San Siro" but his lob ended up on the bottom.
At 30 ', Cistana was booked for a bad foul on André Silva. The Portuguese striker is moving very well and is putting the defense of Brescia in serious difficulty. At 35 ', Sabelli tried the goal with a powerful 20-meter shot but Donnarumma was passed by deflecting the ball into the corner. The first half ended with Milan ahead for one to zero.
At 57 ′, Aye missed a really easy goal after an empty Donnarumma exit. At 61 ′, Piatek, great excluded from the official teams, entered the field in place of André Silva. At 81 ', Donnarumma barely neutralized Bisoli's cross shot. It's over, Milan won 1-0 against Brescia, winning the first three points of their league.
