·3-min read

Juventus scored three goals in seven minutes to come from behind in a thrilling 4-3 victory away at Roma.

The home side had led 3-1 with just over 20 minutes left before Juve’s stunning comeback. Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini also had a late penalty saved by Wojciech Szczesny after Matthijs De Ligt had been shown a second yellow card for handball.

Tammy Abraham nodded home Jordan Veretout’s near-post corner to open the scoring before Paulo Dybala levelled things up.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan restored Roma’s lead at the start of the second half and Pellegrini curled a stunning 25-yard free-kick into the top corner to seemingly put the home side on course for the win.

However, goals from Manuel Locatelli, substitute Dejan Kulusevski and Mattia De Sciglio turned the match on its head.

The win keeps Juventus fifth and three points behind fourth-placed Atalanta, who occupy the final Champions League spot after thrashing Udinese 6-2.

AC Milan kept up the pressure on title rivals Inter with a comfortable 3-0 win at Venezia. Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring before a Theo Hernandez double.

Venezia were reduced to 10 men when defender Michael Svoboda was sent off for handling the ball on the line, with Hernandez dispatching the spot-kick.
