Milan – Lazio 2: 0
Zlatan Ibrahimovic needs just seven minutes after his knee injury to bag the victory for AC Milan. The 39-year-old is served wonderfully by Rebic and easily slides the ball in to make it 2-0 for the home team. The Swedish superstar was last injured in his knee since May – that’s why he missed the European Championship finals with Sweden. After the second hit, the “Rossoneri” don’t let anything go. Only after the final whistle does it go haywire again. In the middle? Ibrahimovic, of course. Lazio coach Sarri rushes angrily towards the goal scorer, and unpleasant words are likely to be exchanged. Sarri can still see red. Then the scene is over as quickly as it came into being. Either way: The vice-champions say hello from the top of the Serie A table after the three against Lazio and are still without a point loss.
The goals: 45. Leo 1:0, 67. Ibrahimovic 2:0.
Sampdoria – Inter 2: 2
What was going on in Sampdoria Genoa’s Antonio Candreva? The game is interrupted after about an hour. After a duel, an Inter player lies on the sidelines on the ground, right next to the substitutes who are warming up. Candreva is there too. He is gesticulating with a – presumably – Inter supervisor, holding the ball in his hands. Inters D’Ambrosio comes in and intervenes. Then it happens: Candreva actually throws the ball in the face of the Inter supervisor on purpose. Not with full force. But still you ask yourself: Did that have to be? Ref Orsato does not punish this action by Candreva, the man with an Inter past. The VAR does not intervene either. Special. The wild game ends 2-2. Inter, the champions, take the lead twice and equalize twice. For the Inzaghi team, it’s their first draw after two wins at the start of the season.
The goals: 18. Dimarco 0:1, 33. Yoshida 1:1, Lautaro Martinez 1:2, 47. Augello 2:2.

Naples – Juventus 2: 1
The turning point begins in the 57th minute. Napoli star Insigne takes heart, shoots in a famous manner from outside the sixteenth. Szczesny can barely parry the shot. Politano is already lurking, hammers the ball over the line. Five minutes before the end of normal playing time, the “old lady” gets stumped. Corner kick Napoli. The ball comes out well on the fiver. Substitute Juve striker Moise Kean has a total misfire, heads the ball in the direction of his own goal! Szczesny shows a surprisingly strong reflex, but the ricochet belongs to the «Gli Azzurri» again. Koulibaly shoots the home team to victory. Grab a camera while cheering – film ready. This means that Napoli is still at the top without a loss point, while Juvents are still waiting for their first victory.
The goals: 10. Morata 0: 1, 57. Politano 1: 1, 85. Koulibaly 2: 1.
