Serie A: Juventus held to a frustrating draw

Serie A reigning champions, Juventus were denied victory on Sunday and remain third on the league table thanks to Felipe Caicedo 95th-minute equaliser for Lazio.

Caicedo turned and fired past Wojciech Szczesny in the 95th minute after great wing-play from Joaquin Correa.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his sixth goal in four league games when he converted Juan Cuadrado’s cross to give Juve the lead in the 15th minute.

The forward was substituted with 15 minutes of the match remaining after appearing to suffer a knock in a challenge. 

The result will be a bitter blow for coach Andrea Pirlo and his men, who were rarely troubled by Lazio. 

Lazio moves up to ninth in the Serie A table with 11 points.
