Serie A underdogs Sassuolo won 2-0 at Verona to go top of the table - at least for a few hours - in what was a great moment for the small provincial club.
Fine shots from Jeremie Boga and captain Domenico Berardi on either side of halftime stunned Verona keeper Marco Silvestri to push the unbeaten Sassuolo onto 18 points from eight games.
Sassuolo, who play in an industrial centre near Modena, are one point ahead of AC Milan and Roma, with Milan in with a chance of reclaiming top spot on Sunday night at Napoli, who themselves could draw level with Sassuolo if they win.
Sassuolo have the league's best attack with 20 goals, one more than Roma, who beat Parma 3-0 with the help of a brace from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Armenia forward fired in a fast drive and a close-range volley after Borja Mayoral's opener.
Inter Milan, meanwhile, bounced back from two goals down to beat visiting Torino 4-2, with Inter's Romelu Lukaku scoring twice.
Torino went 2-0 up from Simone Zaza's low drive and Cristian Ansaldi's second-half penalty on 62, but the hosts levelled in the next five minutes from Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku.
Sanchez tapped in after Lukaku hit the bar and then fed the powerful Belgian, who in the 86th also converted a spot kick awarded, like Torino's, after video review. Substitute Lautaro Martinez sealed the win in the 90th.
Bologna also came from behind at Sampdoria, levelling from an own goal before Riccardo Orsolini clinched a 2-1 win.
Samp's coach Claudio Ranieri was dismissed for protesting in the closing minutes.
Earlier on Sunday, Cesare Prandelli opened his second coaching stint at Fiorentina with a 1-0 home loss against promoted Benevento.
Riccardo Improta fired low into the right corner to help the newcomers move to 14th place, one point clear of the Florence side.
Prandelli took over from Giuseppe Iachini last week. He enjoyed five years as coach in Florence until 2010, when he was appointed as Italy boss for four years.
Footballers and game officials this weekend all wore a red mark on a cheek as a sign of support for the International day for the elimination of violence against women which the United Nations will observe on Wednesday.
