Juventus, Palermo off to flying start in Serie A

Juventus and Palermo got off to a flying start to the Serie A season with Juve thumping Parma 4-1, while Palermo stunned Inter Milan 4-3.
Inter twice had the lead through Diego Milito while Diego Forlan scored a late consolation but Fabrizio Milito scored twice and Abel Hernandez and Maurizio Pinilla gave interim Palermo boss Devis Mangia a dream start since stepping up from youth team duties.

"What pleased me the most was that we never gave up, we never got stretched even though we were tired at end, which is normal, we were struggling," said Mangia.
All the talk before the game was about new Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini's back three and they were far from convincing.
But he denied that was their problem.
"It's not about once defensive system or another, it was due to lack of attention and also tiredness," he said.
"It seemed at end that we were doing well and could win the game, I'm disappointed we conceded those goals."
