Napoli remain top of the table in Italy, with Inter two points behind them in second as the sides drew 0-0, with Lazio in fourth after beating Cagliari 3-0. It was however Juventus who stole all the headlines in their game at Udinese, where forward Mandzukic received two yellow cards in a matter of seconds with his team 2-1 up. The home side brought it back to 2-2 soon after, yet Juventus showed their class as Khedira bagged a hat-trick and his side strolled to a 6-2 victory.
