MILAN: Samuel Eto’o shone yet again with both goals in Inter Milan’s 2-1 comeback win at Palermo to send the champions joint top in Serie A on Sunday.
Eto’o has started his second campaign at Inter in supreme form and again dug Rafael Benitez’s inconsistent side out of a hole.
Slovenian Josip Ilicic put struggling Palermo ahead in the first half before Eto’o produced a piece of magic to equalise on 62 minutes following Milito’s pass and soon finished off a fine move involving Dejan Stankovic and Maicon to seal victory.
After three games Inter lead the table on seven points, alongside promoted Cesena who beat Lecce 1-0.
Juventus, whose poor form last term had continued into the new season, bounced back with a 4-0 win at pointless Udinese with striker Fabio Quagliarella scoring against his former club.
Leonardo Bonucci grabbed the opener before Quagliarella’s crafty backheel, a thunderbolt from Claudio Marchisio and Vincenzo Iaquinta’s fourth.
Striker Marco Borriello netted his first league goal for AS Roma as they raced into a 2-0 lead against Bologna but Claudio Ranieri’s faltering side allowed Marco Di Vaio to score two second-half goals and secure a 2-2 draw for the visitors.
Roma, runners-up last season, were thumped 5-1 at Cagliari last weekend before losing to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
Former Roma forward Luca Toni scored his first league goal for Genoa from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw at Parma.
Chievo suffered a 1-0 home defeat by promoted Brescia while Bari drew 0-0 with Cagliari in the early game.
