Juventus comes from behind to beat Bologna in Serie A
MILAN (AP) — Four-time defending champion Juventus recorded only its second league win of the season as it came from behind to beat bottom side Bologna 3-1, while
Sami Khedira sealed the win for Juventus on his Serie A debut after Paulo Dybala's penalty and Alvaro Morata's equalizer. Anthony Mounier had given Bologna the lead thanks in part to a rare error from Gianluigi Buffon.
It was a first home league win for Juventus, which moved up to 12th.
Inter moved a point above
Roma was a point further back after winning 4-2 at Palermo.
AC Milan hosts Napoli later.
Juventus was looking to turn its league campaign around after five points from six rounds, despite a perfect record in the Champions League.
It was given an early scare when Mounier's powerful shot squirmed under Buffon to put Bologna ahead in the fifth minute.
Morata leveled in the 33rd when he was left completely unmarked to head home Khedira's deflected cross.
The Spaniard was also involved in Juve's other goals. Morata won the penalty which Dybala converted — after making the most of a slight tug by Bologna defender Alex Ferrari — and put a diagonal pass into the area for Khedira to nod home.
Inter was looking to get back on track after seeing its perfect start to the season shattered last week but it was Sampdoria which had the best of the first-half chances and Joaquin Correa had the worst miss of the season so far in the 38th minute.
Correa was one-on-one with Samir Handanovic and his effort took a lucky ricochet off the Inter goalkeeper to leave the Argentine midfielder in front of an open goal but he sent his effort wide of the far post from two yards out.
Inter leveled 14 minutes from time in somewhat chaotic fashion. Mauro Icardi's volley took a double ricochet but he was able to prod the rebound into the path of
Roma was looking to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to BATE Borisov in the Champions League and Miralem Pjanic gave it the lead against Palermo after just 108 seconds, rolling the ball into the bottom right corner after a one-two with Alessandro Florenzi.
The pair combined for another goal in the 14th minute when Pjanic's scuffed shot turned into an assist for Florenzi.
Roma was 3-0 up inside the half hour mark when Gervinho dribbled along the edge of the penalty area before curling a delightful effort into the top right corner.
Palermo almost got one back immediately but Franco Vazquez headed Aleksandar Trajkovski's free kick off the crossbar.
Alberto Gilardino came on at halftime and reduced the deficit with his first goal for Palermo.
Giancarlo Gonzalez thought he had re-opened the match when he scored early in injury time but Gervinho secured the points with his second of the match.
