Leaders Juventus piled more misery on Italian Serie A football rivals Inter Milan after winning a frantic "Derby of Italy" 2-1 at Rome's San Siro stadium.

With all the goals coming in the first half, Claudio Marchisio got the winner just after the half-hour mark after Maicon's 28th-minute piledriver had cancelled out Mirko Vucinic's early strike.

The result leaves unbeaten Juventus two points clear of AC Milan ahead of Monday's programme with a fifth defeat in nine games leaving struggling Inter fifth from bottom.

Champions AC Milan went second after Zlatan Ibrahimovic struck twice in a 3-2 win at Roma, while Catania moved to sixth with a 2-1 defeat of 10-man Napoli.
