Juventus is stumbling towards the title. Cristiano Ronaldo’s team played out a six-goal thriller with Sassuolo that took them seven points clear at the top of Serie A but not before having some nervous moments.

And for the first time since March Ronaldo failed to score a goal his team.

Juve led 2-0 through Danilo’s fine strike from the edge of the area and Gonzalo Higuain’s powerful effort from Miralem Pjanic’s long ball.

But Sassuolo took a 3-2 lead thanks to Filip Djuricic’s first-time effort, a stunning Domenico Berardi free-kick and Francesco Caputo’s close-range finish.

Alex Sandro’s header rescued Juventus in the 63rd minute of the game as leaders escaped with a draw with 8th ranked Sassuolo. 

Ronaldo failed to score in a Serie A game for the first time since March, having netted seven goals in six league games since the restart. Sarri’s side are looking for a ninth consecutive Serie A title and lead second-placed Atalanta by seven points with five games still to go.
