Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to find the net as the Serie A champions fought back to win 3-2 against Chievo in Verona.
Sami Khedira, Ronaldo’s former team-mate at Real Madrid, got the visitors off to the perfect start just tree minutes in before Mariusz Stepinski nodded in an equaliser on the half-hour mark.
Emanuele Giaccherini gave Chievo the lead from the penalty spot in the 56th minute, but an own goal from Mattia Bani in the 75th left the tie finely poised heading into the final quarter of the game.
Juventus thought they got the winner in the 86th minute, but Mario Mandzukic’s header was ruled out by VAR as Ronaldo’s handball beforehand saw the goal chalked off. Moments later and Juventus did get their third through substitute Federico Bernardeschi who slotted in from close range at the Ninety third minute.
