Juventus draw with lowly Verona as Pirlo feels the pressure

Andrea Pirlo's side recorded their third draw of the season as they couldn't find the winner against stubborn visitors

Juventus are fast losing ground in the Serie A title race as their third draw in five matches left them frustrated by Verona.

Juve had most of the game and Juan Cuadrado had the best chance of the first half, lashing his shot off the crossbar from inside the area.

Alvaro Morata then had a goal harshly ruled out for offside - his lobbed finish was sublime and deserved to count - and Verona took a shock lead in the second half.

Favilli wandered into empty space to slot home past Wojiech Szczesny and then Juve went on to dominate the final 30 minutes of the game.

Dejan Kulusevski struck a deserved equaliser, coming of the bench to weave in and out before slotting home, before Paulo Dybala had chances to win it.

The Argentine cut inside to lash a shot off the underside of the crossbar, while in injury time his shot was saved by Marco Silvestri as Verona held on for a point.

AC Milan can now go six points clear of Juve with victory at home to Roma on Monday evening.
