Carlos Tevez: Hit a hat-trick on Sunday night

Carlos Tevez: Hit a hat-trick on Sunday night

The Argentinian also set up the fourth goal for Federico Peluso in a 4-0 win over Sassuolo as the Bianconeri put their midweek Champions League disappointment behind them.

Tevez earned a standing ovation after being withdrawn minutes after netting the fourth midway through the second half of a one-sided game.

Napoli won a 4-2 thriller against Inter Milan.

Gonzalo Higuain (9), Dries Mertens (39) and Blerim Dzemaili (41) netted in an entertaining first half that saw Inter reply through Esteban Cambiasso (35) and Yuto Nagatomo (45).

Ricky Alvarez then saw red on 71 minutes before Jose Callejon wrapped up a Napoli win that could have been even more emphatic if Goran Pandev had converted a late penalty.

Josip Ilicic, Borja Valero and Giuseppe Rossi were on target for fourth-placed Fiorentina as they beat Bologna 3-0.

Lazio secured their first Serie A win since October as a first-half Miroslav Klose double was enough to see off struggling Livorno at the Stadio Olimpico.

Klose's goals came in the space of seven minutes as he first profited from an Antonio Candreva assist before the Livorno defence was compliant in allowing him to effectively kill off the game inside half an hour.

The veteran Germany striker, who had just two league goals coming into the game, could have had a hat-trick too after he had hit a post shortly before opening the scoring.

Eder's first-half header helped Sampdoria win for the third successive game 1-0 over Chievo.

Torino continued their impressive run of form with a 2-0 win over Udinese.

Second-half goals from Alexander Farnerud and Ciro Immobile did the damage.

Giuseppe De Luca scored with almost the last kick of the game as Atalanta snatched a 1-1 draw away to Genoa, who had led through Andrea Bertolacci (72).

Parma and Cagliari played out a goalless draw on Sunday as the Sardinians' long wait for an away win went on.

Cagliari had their fair share of opportunities to end a winless away run which dates back to February 17.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
