Another dramatic weekend of Serie A action has thrown up yet more talking points.

Fierce rivals Inter Milan and AC Milan extended their perfect starts to the season with both clubs boasting three wins from three and topping the table at this early stage.

Jose Mourinho's Roma, however, find themselves in the relegation zone and without their first victory this campaign. Again, they lacked quality in several crucial areas.

Mail Sport's ALVISE CAGNAZZO talks us through 10 things we learned.


After Sandro Tonali's departure, Rafael Leao has become the leader of the AC Milan dressing room.

Against Roma he scored his first goal with the number 10 on his back, an extraordinary bicycle kick that silenced the Stadio Olimpico and sparked wild applause from Stefano Pioli and the Rossoneri's supporters.

At the end of the match, with childlike happy eyes, he revealed his joy to DAZN, saying: 'I've been looking for such a beautiful goal for three years.'

In the first half he beat Zeki Celik and Gianluca Mancini with his dribbling at least three times and in the second half he seemed to be playing against a team of children.
