MILAN (AP) - A teenage goalkeeper restricted Juventus to a 2-2 draw at home to Sassuolo on Sunday which dropped the eight-time defending champion into second place.
Juventus needed Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty to secure a point against Sassuolo before Inter Milan beat Spal 2-1 to move a point above the Bianconeri in the Serie A table.
Sassuolo’s first-choice goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo was recovering from surgery and reserve Andrea Consigli was also injured, so 18-year-old Stefano Turati was handed his debut.
Turati’s youth was highlighted by the appearance of veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon at the other end.
The 41-year-old Buffon had made 160 Serie A appearances before Turati was even born.
