(ANSAmed) - ROME, MARCH 26 - Ibrahimovic was behind Milan's success against Roma in the 29 th day of championship matches, allowing it to hold onto its top position in the Serie A rankings. Milan suffered a bit at the beginning of the match against the team led by coach Luis Enrique, with Osvaldo's goal in the first half. In the second, however, Ibrahimovic woke up and managed a penalty shot and a goal for the final 2-1, racking up 22 goals so far in the championship and giving the fourth win in a row to his team.

However, Juventus is still hot on the latter's heels, beating Inter 2-0 in the day's big match, the 29 th without any losses and only 4 points from the top level position. Inter put its all into the first half but found an unsurpassable Buffon squarely in the way, and so in the second Juventus managed goals by Caceres and Del Piero for a final 2-0. The three-way struggle goes on for third place, between Lazio, Udinese and Napoli. The Roman team beat Cagliari 1-0 thanks to a goal two minutes before the 90' mark by the Frenchman Diakite.

Almost at the same exact time in Naples Lanzafame brought in a goal for the 2-2 with which Catania stopped its adversary in its tracks: Mazzarri's team had been ahead with 2-0 after Dzemaili and Cavani's goals, but the Sicilian team did not throw in the towel and managed to rack up a draw. Udinese was also halted in Palermo, with a going under to 1-0 due to Miccoli's goal but then managing a final draw with the help of the Romanian Torje.

Lazio now has 51 points, three more than Napoli and Udinese. Worthy of note among the other matches was Atalanta's win over Bologna 2-0, while seeing draws were Cesena-Parma (2-2), Chievo-Siena (1-1) and Novara-Lecce (0-0).(ANSAmed).
