MILAN---Lazio survived strong
Fiorentina pressure to come away
with a 2-0 victory at the Stadio
Artemio Franchi for its third con-
secutive Serie A win yesterday.
Antonio Candreva set up both
goals for Filip Djordjevic and Senad
Lulic as Lazio moved provisionally
into sixth place, two points behind
AC Milan, which won 3-1 at Hellas
Verona. Keisuke Honda scored in
either half to take his tally to six
for the season and match Carlos
Tevez as top goal scorer. Verona
defender Rafa Marques scored a
comical own goal for the opener.
"The lads make me proud to
train them," Milan coach Filippo
Inzaghi said. "I m very calm. I
didn t think we d be 3-0 up at
such a difficult ground.
"The group is giving me so
much satisfaction. Today was a
good victory, but now we re already
thinking about the next game
Sampdoria remained third
despite squandering a two-goal
lead to draw 2-2 at Cagliari, while
Palermo beat fellow promoted side
Cesena 2-1. Also, Torino beat Udi-
nese 1-0 and Atalanta defeated
Parma by the same scoreline.
In the lunchtime kickoff, Djord-
jevic gave Lazio a deserved lead in
the 35th minute, with his fifth goal
in three matches after Candreva
latched onto Lucas Biglia s through
ball and put in a low cross for
Djordjevic to smash in at the near
post. It was the first goal Fiorentina
had conceded at home all season.
Fiorentina dominated the second
half and Alberto Aquilani almost
equalised with a bicycle kick that
crashed off the upright.
Lazio sealed the win in stoppage
time after a counterattack as Can-
dreva squared the ball for Lulic to
tap into an empty net.
"After a couple of days of pre-
season, we were stunned by Djord-
jevic s desire and ability to attack
the spaces," Lazio coach Stefano
Like Fiorentina and Lazio, both
Verona and Milan went into the
match on the same points.
Verona gifted Milan the lead in
the 21st when an attempted clear-
ance went horribly wrong and
Marques sliced Ignazio Abate s
cross into his own net.
Honda doubled Milan s lead
shortly afterwards when he drove
home Stephan El Shaarawy s
The Japanese international
bagged his second of the game 11
minutes into the second half when
he latched onto a long through ball
from Adil Rami before drilling it
into the bottom left corner.
Nico Lopez scored a consolation
for Verona three minutes from time
but defender Rafa Marquez was
sent off in stoppage time for a sec-
ond yellow card to compound the
home side s misery.
In Cagliari, Sampdoria broke the
deadlock in the 28th when Manolo
Gabbiadini volleyed in from close
range a chipped free kick from
Sampdoria seemed to be heading
for a comfortable win when Pedro
Obiang went on a run and drove
home to double his side s lead
shortly before halftime.
Gabbiadini should have sealed
the result minutes after the restart
but he hit the post from close range
and Samp was left to rue that miss
as just before the hour mark Fab-
rizio Cacciatore was sent off for a
foul on Victor Ibarbo which resulted
in a second booking and a penalty.
Danilo Avelar fired home from the
spot before setting up Marco Sau
for the equaliser in the 77th.
Palermo recorded its first win
of the season thanks to a stop-
page-time header from debutant
Paulo Dybala had given Palermo
a halftime lead with a superb
curled finish but Alejandro
Rodriguez restored parity from the
spot after Sinisa Andjelkovic fouled
Cesena played the final 11 min-
utes with 10 men after Manuel
Coppola received two yellow cards
in quick succession.
Atalanta also left it late before
securing victory as Richmond
Boakye scored his side s first home
goal of the season in the final

didn t celebrate after scoring the
only goal of the game against his
former club. (AP)
PARIS---Striker Andre-Pierre Gignac scored his
tenth league goal in as many games as league leader
Marseille beat Toulouse 2-0 yesterday to secure an
eighth straight win and stay seven points ahead of
bitter rival Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux.
After centre half Nicolas Nkoulou put Marseille
ahead in the 21st minute with an effort that appeared
to come off the top of his shoulder, Gignac made it
11 in 11 for club and country when he finished off
a fine one-touch passing move in the 36th. Gignac,
who struggled with weight problems when he joined
Marseille four years ago, is thriving under new coach
Marcelo Bielsa s strict, disciplinarian approach.
"We worked ferociously hard for four days during
the week and the efforts paid off," said Gignac, who
says he is five kilograms lighter than he was last
season, when Marseille was regularly jeered by its
home fans and finished in sixth place---a massive 29
points behind champion PSG.
Bordeaux missed the chance to leapfrog PSG and move
into outright second place when it drew 1-1 at home to
lowly Caen. Mali forward Cheick Diabate put Bordeaux
ahead from the penalty spot midway through the first
half, but striker Herve Bazile equalised in the 77th.
Marseille has 25 points after ten rounds, with PSG
leading Bordeaux on goal difference. The Argentine
coach Bielsa has transformed the club, which equalled
its record for successive wins in front of 62,000 fans
at Stade Velodrome---also setting a new club record
for the highest attendance at home.
Marseille will try and set a new club record for
consecutive wins when it travels to play Lyon next
Sunday. PSG beat Lens 3-1 on Friday but had striker
Edinson Cavani sent off. (AP)
planned visit this week
by Albania s prime
minister to Serbia, the
first in nearly 70 years,
has been postponed
for next month,
authorities said yes-
terday, after political
between the two
Balkan rivals following
a football brawl.
Prime Minister Alek-
sandar Vucic and
Edi Rama spoke on the
phone and agreed to
meet on November 10
instead of Wednesday,
according to a state-
ment issued by the Ser-
bian premier s office.
"The two prime
ministers agreed that
they must and will not
let go of the opportu-
nity to meet and work
for regional stability
and to turn a new page
regarding the political
and economic relations
between the two coun-
tries," the statement
Belgrade and Tirana
have had strained rela-
tions for decades,
mostly over the status
of the former Serbian
province of Kosovo,
which declared inde-
pendence in 2008 fol-
lowing a war.
Serbia has refused to
acknowledge the split,
but both Serbia and
Albania must work to
improve ties to advance
in their efforts to join
the European Union.
Last Wednesday s
qualifying match was
suspended after a drone
carrying an Albanian
nationalist flag ignited
clashes between players
and fans, fueling ethnic
and political unrest.
Serbia accused Alba-
nia of a deliberate provo-
cation, while Albania
said its players were
insulted and attacked.
Several ethnic Albanian
businesses in Serbia were
attacked by extremists
in the wake of the
match, in a sign of
mounting tensions. (AP)
