 Inter Milan moved back into fourth spot in Serie A with a dominant 3-0 victory at Udinese on Sunday, while newly-promoted Hellas Verona beat Cagliari 2-1 to also keep up the pressure on the top three.

Rodrigo Palacio, Andrea Ranocchia and Ricardo Alvarez scored for Inter, which never really looked like letting its lead slip despite a couple of defensive errors.

Luca Toni and Bosko Jankovic were on target in Verona to help the hosts to their fifth win in six matches.

Inter and Verona are both level on 22 points, six behind Juventus and Napoli and eight off leader Roma, which has won all 10 of its matches and visits Torino later.

Elsewhere, teenage forward Domenico Berardi scored a hat trick to help Sassuolo beat 10-man Sampdoria 4-3.
