JUVENTUS and Serie A debutants Chievo won their second successive matches to move top of the league with 100 percent records.

Goals from Alessandro Del Piero and David Trezeguet gave Juventus a 2-0 win at Atalanta, a week after they both scored twice in the opening encounter at Venezia.

Verona club Chievo join Juventus on maximum points after a 2-0 home win over Bologna.

Chievo face Juventus in Turin next Saturday.

Inter Milan had looked set for a second win until Parma's Emiliano Bonazzoli equalised five minutes from the end to earn his side a 2-2 draw.

On Saturday Roma drew 1-1 at home to Udinese and Lazio were held to a goalless draw at Perugia.

Following an away win over Fiorentina in their first ever Serie A match, Chievo's dream start continued with a deserved victory over Bologna.

Bernardo Corradi put Chievo ahead in the 13th minute and Federico Cossato secured the three points with a fine diving header in the 85th.

Inter took a 10th minute lead at Parma when defender Marco Materazzi headed home a Clarence Seedorf free kick.

Parma drew level in the 28th minute when Savo Milosevic slotted into the empty net.

But within a minute Inter had restored their lead through Nicola Ventola.

Toldo made an outstanding save to keep out a late effort from Bonazzoli but then handed the Parma striker the equaliser, dropping a Marco Marchionni corner which Bonazzoli drove home.

Albanian striker Igli Tare made it four goals in two games as he scored twice in Brescia's 3-1 win at Torino.

Former Italy striker Roberto Baggio added Brescia's third with a late penalty.

In Spain, Celta Vigo knocked neighbours Deportivo Coruna off the top of the first division table on goal difference as they ran out 3-0 winners over recently-promoted Tenerife.

A 32nd-minute penalty from striker Catanha was followed five minutes later by a well-worked goal from Russian international striker Alexander Mostovoi to give the home side a two-goal lead at the break.

Mostovoi added a third as he converted from the penalty spot on 71 minutes after Jesuli was adjudged to have been brought down by Samuel Slovak.

Real Madrid are still looking for their first league win as a Fernando Sanz strike enabled Malaga to claim a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu stadium on Saturday.

Real's inability to turn their domination of possession into goals will worry coach Vicente del Bosque as the team prepare for their tough Champions League opener away to AS Roma tomorrow .

Deportivo Coruna left it late to snatch a 1-0 win at Las Palmas, the winner coming from a fine individual effort from Fran.

Earlier, Real Mallorca were given a morale boost ahead of their Champions League opener against Arsenal as an opportunist strike by Samuel Eto'o gave them a 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao.

In Germany, Kaiserslautern maintained their perfect start to the season with their fifth win in five games, beating Werder Bremen 2-1 to put them three points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Defending champions Bayern Munich ended Borussia Dortmund's unbeaten run by outclassing them 2-0.

A first-half goal by Bosnian midfielder Hasan Salihamidzic and one after the break from Paraguayan striker Roque Santa Cruz gave Bayern their first away win this season and enabled them to move up to fourth.

In France, a late goal by Khalilou Fadiga gave AJ Auxerre a 1-0 victory over Montpellier on Saturday and sent the Burgundy side to the top of the French league table, displacing RC Lens who drew 2-2 at Paris St Germain.

Fadiga slotted home from close range with four minutes left to send Auxerre top on goal difference.

Auxerre and Lens, who extended their unbeaten run to six, are level on 14 points.
