Italian misery in Uefa Cup
Italian side Inter Milans Roberto Di Baggio challenges Ivan Alonso
Inter squander their lead against Alaves
As Liverpool grab a crucial away victory at Roma, there is disappointment for Italy's other hopefuls in the fourth round, first leg ties of the Uefa Cup.

Alaves 3-3 Inter Milan

Spanish minnows Alaves came from two goals down with 20 minutes to go to force a thrilling draw with Inter Milan.

Leading Spanish league scorer Javier Moreno opened the scoring with a goal two minutes before the break but Inter's Uruguayan forward Alvaro Recoba equalised a minute into the second half.

Recoba then put the visitors ahead four minutes later and Christian Vieri made it 3-1 in the 60th minute.

Alaves came back to life with Oscar Tellez and Uruguayan forward Ivan Alonso knocking in a goal apiece to clinch the draw.

PSV Eindhoven 2-1 Parma

There was more disappointment for Italy as Parma ran out of steam in Holland.

Andre Ooijer's strike put the home side ahead after only 23 minutes only for the visitors to equalise after the break with a goal from Cameroon striker Patrick Mboma.

But Dennis Rommedahl bagged the winner for the Dutch side in the 72nd minute and PSV held on for victory.

AEK Athens 0-1 Barcelona

This was a low-scoring affair, with the visitors getting the only goal of the game.

Luis Enrique pounced on a rebound to score Barcelona's winner in the 41st minute.

The Spanish side's victory marks the first time AEK have been beaten at home in European competition for five years.

Rayo Vallecano 4-1 Bordeaux

Vallecano gave French side Bordeaux a lesson in scoring with a commanding performance.

Bordeaux took the lead when Laslandes scored in the second minute but Quintana levelled a quarter of an hour later.

Vallecano had to wait until the second half to finish off the visitors.

Bolic put them in the lead in the 74th minute and Quevedo scored 10 minutes later.

Michel completed the scoring with a fourth in the last minute.

Slavia Prague 0-0 Kaiserslautern

Goalkeeper Georg Koch was Kaiserslautern's hero as the German club drew in Prague.

Slavia strikers Tomas Dosek and Ludek Zelenka took advantage of some shaky Kaiserslautern defending to create a number of chances, but Koch kept the scoresheet blank.

When Zelenka did find the back of the net in the 28th minute, his effort was ruled out for offside.

Vfb Stuttgart 0-0 Celta Vigo

Goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand was the star for the German side.

Vigo came close to an away victory nine minutes from time when a dangerous header by defender Fernando Caceres forced Hildebrand to make a spectacular diving save.

Hildebrand again made a vital contribution with a few seconds remaining, winning a duel with substitute Tomas Alberto.

Porto 3-1 Nantes

Things got off to a good start for the visitors when Hassan Ahamada scored in the 14th minute.

But from then on it was to be Porto's night, with Esquerdinha equalising from the penalty spot just three minutes later.

It went from bad to worse for the French side as Nicolas Gillet scored an own goal just before the hour mark.

Carlos Secretario grabbed Porto's third goal in the 87th minute.
