Marchisio's double leads Juve over AC Milan

Claudio Marchisio scored twice after the 86th 0, on Sunday at Juventus Stadium to remain unbeaten and move to the top of Italy's Serie A.

Juve won for the third time through five matches, with draws in the other two, and sits level on 11 points with Udinese atop the table. Milan lost its second of the season against just one win and two draws.

Following more than 85 minutes of scoreless action, Marchisio broke the match open with just three minutes left in normal time when he scored to the bottom right from the middle of the area.

Kevin-Prince Boateng was sent off two minutes later for Milan for his second yellow and Marchisio sealed Juve's victory 2 minutes into stoppage time with a volley from outside box that went through goalie Christian Abbiati's legs.

Milan is just four points off the bottom in 15th.

Udinese 2, Bologna 0

Lazio 2, Fiorentina 1

The decisive goal arrived seven minutes from time when Miroslav Klose scored his third goal of the campaign, moving Lazio into the top half of the league.

Novara 3, Catania 3

Novara, Italy - A stoppage-time goal from Alejandro Gomez preserved Catania's unbeaten start to the Serie A campaign on Sunday as the club finished in a 3-3 draw with Novara.

Francesco Lodi's goal put Catania back in front, only for Novara to counter with goals from Takayuki Morimoto and Neves Jeda to move in front with six minutes to play.

However, Catania recorded its fourth draw in five games when Gomez collected his first goal of the season in the first minute of added time.
