Palermo moved above Inter at the top of the Serie A table after a 3-0 win over Torino.
Palermo continued their fine start to the Serie A season with a 3-0 in over Torino which meant they wrestled top spot off Internazionale - who beat Parma 2-1 in the late kick-off.
The Sicilian outfit sit top of the table thanks to the victory, as they a better goal-scoring recored than Inter.
Palermo took the lead just before the interval through midfielder Eugenio Corini (43). They sealed a comfortable success with second half efforts from David Di Michele (68) and Amauri (pictured, 78).
Inter needed a last gasp winner from Julio Cruz to seal the victory at The Ennio Tardini.
Zlatan Ibrahmimovic put Inter ahead after 15 minutes but Igor Budan was on hand to level just ten minutes later.
The win was then sealed by Cruz two minutes into stoppage time - although there was still time for Ibrahimovic to get himself sent off for a second yellow card.
Catania find themselves in the top six after a hard fought 3-2 success over Livorno.
An action packed encounter saw Gionatha Spinesi (35) give Catania the lead, before the visitors hit back through Ibrahima Bakayoko (48) and Sergio Paulinho (60).
Fabio Caserta (61) then levelled for the home side, and the winner came in the last minute through Giorgio Corona.
Empoli climbed to eighth following a 1-0 win at Ascoli with Antonio Busce's goal after seven minutes proving crucial.
Lazio will be more than happy with their day's work following 5-0 mauling of Udinese at the Stadio Olimpico.
Tommaso Rocchi (32 & 82) and Stefano Mauri (40 & 73) helped themselves to braces with Massimo Oddo (78) adding the other against an Udinese side who were reduced to ten men late on when Felipe was sent off.
Sampdoria find themselves in the top half after a 3-0 home triumph over Chievo.
Emiliano Bonazzoli (19) and Fabio Quagliarella (27 & 34) scored as all the goals came in the first half at the Luigi Ferraris.
Reggina find themselves out of negative points after sealing a 1-0 win at Siena. The winner came 20 minutes from time with a Rolando Bianchi penalty.
The final game of the day saw Cagliari grab an injury time equaliser to draw 2-2 with Messina.
Goals from Nicolas Cordova (35) and Christian Rigano (63), sandwiched a Mauro Esposito effort and looked to have given Messina the win, but Daniele Conti fired home in stoppage time.
