Saturday’s Serie A slate had three games, and although most eyes will have been on the derby between Torino and Juventus, all three made for enthralling viewing. Salernitana claimed an unexpected win over Genoa, while Juve then got one over on their bitter rivals and then champions Inter Milan went about beating Sassuolo the hard way.

Below are the scores and recap from Saturday’s action. You can watch Serie A all season long onĀ Paramount+.

Serie A scores

Salernitana 1, Genoa 0
Juventus 1, Torino 0
Inter Milan 2, Sassuolo 1
Cagliari 1, Venezeia 1 (Friday)

Juve’s derby spoils

They left it late, but Massimiliano Allegri’s men took the Turin spoils thanks to Manuel Locatelli’s late winner at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino. While it was not necessarily pretty, Juve will settle for grinding results out for a bit while they get back on track after a slow start to the season. Torino see their old foes overtake them and enter the top half of the table.

Salernitana finally win

At the seventh time of asking, Salernitana finally registered a win and move off the bottom of the Serie A table at Genoa’s expense. Milan Duric was the hero, netting the only goal of the game after 66 minutes at Stadio Arechi as summer signing Franck Ribery finally tasted success with his new club as well as picking up a booking. Meanwhile, Genoa will be looking nervously over their shoulders at that drop zone.

Inter fightback

Simone Inzaghi’s titleholders fell behind to Domenico Berardi’s first-half penalty but raised their game in the second and leveled through Edin Dzeko before going on to win it through Lautaro Martinez from the penalty spot. The result keeps the Nerazzurri within a point of Napoli who have a tough trip to Fiorentina on Sunday.

Valiant Venezia

Cagliari thought they had done enough on Friday night to move out of the bottom three thanks to Keita Balde’s early opener. However, Gianluca Busio’s late, late equalizer denied Walter Mazzarri’s men and gave Paolo Zanetti’s side a much-needed point of their own to stay out of trouble — for now.
