Eto'o leads Inter's rally, Juve clinch first win
Samuel Eto'o struck twice as Serie A champions Inter Milan rallied to a 2-1 win at Sicily side Palermo on Sunday, dpa reported.
The Cameroon forward is now on three goals from as many games as he twice hit in the second half after the hosts went ahead from Slovenian midfielder Josip Ilicic.
Rafael Benitez rested midfielder Wesley Sneijder for Serb Dejan Stankovic, who was denied by the bar 13 minutes into the game as Inter took control.
But they were often exposed to the hosts' counter attacks. One break in the 28th minute from young Javier Pastore proved deadly for the European champions when Ilicic tapped in after Brazilian Julio Cesar dove to deflect Pastore's initial drive.
There were several mistakes from both sides before Eto'o on 62 minutes beat Salvatore Sirugu with a low diagonal shot.
A quick exchange with Stankovic on 69 allowed Eto'o a close-range winner, but Palermo came close again when Pastore fired against the post in the final minutes.
Inter have seven points just as Cesena, who remained top on a superior goal difference after Albanian Erjion Bogdani was on target to beat Lecce 1-0 in a duel of promoted teams.
Cesena captain Giuseppe Colucci was dismissed in a first-half brawl, while Lecce's Gianni Munari was also sent off for kicking an opponent.
Juventus hammered zero-point hosts Udinese 4-0 and clinched their first win through first-half goals from defender Leonardo Bonucci, Fabio Quagliarella, Claudio Marchisio and a late contribution from Vincenzo Iaquinta.
Roma drew 2-2 at home against Bologna as Marco Di Vaio's brace in the last 15 minutes cancelled out an opening effort from Marco Borriello and Matteo Rubin's own goal.
Chievo lost the top spot as visiting newcomers Brescia beat them 1-0 though a first-half free kick from Alessandro Diamanti.
Parma and Genoa drew 1-1, with a recovered Luca Toni converting a penalty before Christian Zaccardo levelled for Parma.
Bari and Cagliari drew 0-0 earlier Sunday to remain unbeaten on five points, while Sampdoria and Napoli close the weekend with a late game.
On Saturday, AC Milan were held 1-1 at home to Catania and Lazio came back to win 2-1 at Fiorentina.
