Super Friday: Wins For Both Lazio And St. Pauli

Lazio beat depleted European champion Inter Milan 3-1 to take back a share of the Serie A lead. Giuseppe Biava put Lazio in front in the 27th minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Mauro Zarate made it 2-0 in the 52nd. Playing against his former club, Goran Pandev pulled one back for Inter in the 74th but Lazio's new Brazil forward Hernanes sealed the match in the 89th.

Inter was without its top two strikers - Samuel Eto'o due to suspension and Diego Milito due to injury - as well as a host of other injured players, and Lazio dominated until Inter came alive in the final 15 minutes. Lazio and AC Milan are tied with 30 points each, Juventus and Napoli are next with 24 apiece and Inter is tied for fifth with Palermo with 23.

Meanwhile, an own goal by Christian Tiffert gave St. Pauli a 1-0 win over Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga. Tiffert headed into his own net in the 48th minute to inadvertently help St. Pauli end a six-game winless run. Both teams now have 17 points.
