Juventus’ grasp on their Scudetto crown continues to loosen as they conceded a late equaliser in a draw at Hellas Verona.

Scorers: Barak 77′; Ronaldo 48′

After a largely listless first half, Juventus came out swinging instantly after the interval and scored swiftly when Federico Chiesa found Cristiano Ronaldo in space to sweep into the corner.

But they couldn’t build upon that advantage and were caught out with 13 minutes remaining when Antonín Barák rose highest above Alex Sandro in the area to head in and leave the Old Lady with a big mountain to climb at the top.

The surprise slip from the champions means Inter could move 10 points clear at the Serie A summit with a win over Genoa on Sunday.
