This Serie A weekend keeps on surprising us and last night was probably the biggest so far as bottom of the league Salernitana held leaders Milan to a 2-2 draw in their first game under new boss Davide Nicola.

When Junior Massias converted a Theo Hernandez cross in the 5th minute, everyone feared an absolute spanking but Salernitana regrouped and indeed took the game to Milan. Their equaliser came on 29 minutes when a deep cross from the right was badly misjudged by Milan keeper Steve Maignan, who took out Milan Djuric as he managed to head the ball towards goal. It popped up for Bonazzoli to smash home a spectacular overhead volley which Hernandez tried in vain to keep out.

Djuric recovered from the heavy impact and in the 72nd minute, he rose above the Milan defenders to head home a great cross from Mazzocchi to put Salernitana 2-1 up. The lead didn’t last long though, Ante Rebic crashed home Giroud’s knock down from 20 yards out.

In Rome, Mourinho was already under pressure but after 20 minutes of their home game against Verona, he found himself under even more pressure at 2-0 down!

A neatly-worked Verona free kick ended with the ball being slammed home by Barak from close range. 15 minutes later, another beautiful Verona move ended the same way, this time Tameze firing into the roof of the net for 2-0.

In the second half, Roma’s kids got him out of jail. On 65, 18 year-old Cristian Volpato fired in from the edge of the penalty box through a crowd of players and on 84 minutes, when a Roma corner was cleared to 19 year old Edoardo Bove, he took it to an ever-narrowing angle and seemed to be going nowhere but his laser-guided strike flew down a narrow channel between a defender’s leg, the keeper’s hand and his near post to send the Roma fans wild.

Mourinho was sent off in flamboyant fashion in the dying seconds.

In Genoa, Fabio Quagliarella’s double brought him to 100 goals for Sampdoria and gave them a 2-0 win against Empoli.
