    LAZIO squandered a two-goal advantage to draw 2-2 at Inter Milan but will spend the winter break in third spot in Serie A after Sampdoria and Genoa also failed to win on Sunday.

    Lazio moved above Napoli on goal difference. Sampdoria was also on 27 points after it was held to a 2-2 draw at home to Udinese in the final round of Serie A fixtures in 2014.

    Genoa remained a point further back after losing 2-1 at relegation-threatened Torino.

    Earlier, Chievo Verona beat city rival Hellas Verona 1-0 in a derby match. Also, Fiorentina was held to a 1-1 draw by Empoli, while Atalanta fought back from two goals down to draw 3-3 at home to Palermo.

    Meanwhile, Marseille beat Lille 2-1 Sunday to ensure it ended the year top of Ligue 1, while Lyon thrashed 10-man Bordeaux 5-0 to leapfrog Paris Saint-Germain into second spot.

    An own goal from Lille forward Nolan Roux and Michy Batshuayi's strike — shortly after Idrissa Gueye's equalizer — saw Marseille head into the winter break three points clear of Paris Saint-Germain, which played to a scoreless draw against Montpellier on Saturday.

    In Bordeaux, goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso either side of the break had given Lyon a comfortable lead before Nicolas Pallois was sent off in the 16th minute for a dangerous tackle on Clinton N'Jie.

    Nabil Fekir, Jordan Ferri and Lacazette all scored in the final nine minutes for Lyon.
