Juventus miss chance to seal title after shock defeat

Cristiano Ronaldo is the joint top scorer in Serie A with 30 goals

Juventus missed out on the chance to wrap up the Serie A title as they fell to a surprise defeat at struggling Udinese.

Juve, who have been Italian champions for exactly 3,000 days, need to win one of their final three games to win their ninth title in a row.

They led through Matthijs de Ligt’s powerful drive.

But Ilija Nestorovski headed in an equaliser before Seko Fofana’s brilliant winner in injury time.

As Maurizio Sarri’s side pushed for a winner, Fofana ran from the halfway line, beat Alex Sandro for pace before cutting inside De Ligt and slotting the ball under Wojciech Szczesny.
