MILAN (AP) — Defending champion Juventus dropped its first points of the season as it was held to a surprise 1-1 draw by bottom club Sassuolo on Saturday and saw its lead at the top of the Serie A table cut to one point ahead of Roma.
Sassuolo took a shock lead in the 12th minute through Simone Zaza but Paul Pogba leveled almost immediately with a magnificent strike.
The result ends a run of 13 consecutive league victories for Juventus.
Earlier, Roma cruised to a 3-0 win over Chievo Verona, with all the goals coming in the first half.
Mattia Destro and Adem Ljajic scored before a penalty from Francesco Totti ensured the capital side heads into Tuesday's Champions League clash against Bayern Munich full of confidence.
Juventus visits Olympiakos on Wednesday in their European encounter.
