Here’s what we learned.The United States fell behind versus Costa Rica and then turn the resort around to win in a third come back victory. Winning matches after falling from behind is the mark of an effective team. It’s hard to win a game if you fall behind and so turning around a result requires mental fortitude and high morale. It’s very easy for a game that’s going badly to get worse. In that sense the players and the coach deserve praise for being able to handle that kind of adversity.

This week's first slate of games is almost done with just Napoli against Bologna left on Thursday and like Tuesday, Wednesday produced some significant results.

Round 8: Juventus vs. Roma match preview

  Round 8: Juventus vs. Roma match preview Just like last month, Juventus comes out of the international break with a pretty big-time fixture.But, when it comes to zooming out from focusing on just two men who, while very important to their respective team’s success, there’s a very real fact looking us right in the face.

Davide Frattesi's first half opener was teed up by Gregoire Defrel and then cancelled out by Weston McKennie's leveller from a Paulo Dybala assist.

However, instead of Juve going on to win it, Domenico Berardi provided for Maxime Lopez to score at the death in the fifth minute of added time to gift the visitors all three points and their first-ever win at Allianz Stadium.

The Old Lady are now 13 points behind leaders Milan with their title hopes looking slim.

  Juventus 1 - Zenit 0: Initial reaction and random observations That scoreline is looking awfully familiar over the last few weeks.So, basically, the bar was low for the second half.

Empoli 0, Inter Milan 2

It was more straightforward evening for Inter who disposed of Empoli through Danilo D'Ambrosio and Federico Dimarco efforts in either half at Stadio Carlo Castellani.

The result keeps Inter third and now there is a two-point gap over Roma and six points between the Nerazzurri and Juve who are currently out of European contention.

Cagliari 1, Roma 2

The Sardinians threatened to make life difficult for Jose Mourinho and his side but ultimately Walter Mazzarri's hosts fell short again and remain bottom.

Cagliari took the lead through Leonardo Pavoletti but 20 minutes from time, Lorenzo Pellegrini came to the fore for the Giallorossi.

Inside of seven minutes, Pellegrini had teed up Ibanez to level and then put Roma ahead himself to ensure that they remain within two points of Inter in second.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic provided the assist as Lazio moved up ahead of Juve and into the continental spots.

Sampdoria 1, Atalanta 3

The most entertaining game was arguably one of the earlier kick-offs with Gian Piero Gasperini's men recovering from a goal down to win 3-1.

Francesco Caputo gave Blucerchiati the lead only for a Kristoffer Askildsen own goal to level for La Dea before Duvan Zapata converted from Davide Zappacosta four minutes later.

Josip Ilicic made the game safe late on and Atalanta remain within three points of third spot in the table.

Udinese 1, Verona 1

Finally, Udinese and Verona shared a point apiece with early and late goals at Dacia Arena as Isaac Success gave the hosts the lead only for former Friulani Antonin Barak to level from the penalty spot inside the final 10 minutes.

Venezia 3, Roma 2: Okereke Match-Winner Spoils Sharper Roma Performance .
Roma looked better in attack than they have in weeks but still came up short thanks to some defensive miscues.Apart from the early kick-off time, José Mourinho unveiled a surprise of his own: a new formation. Gone was the 4-2-3-1, chucked out in favor of the 3-4-1-2; a move that puts nearly all of Roma's attacking cards on the table at once. It's a change some fans and pundits have been calling on for several weeks now but still somehow registered as a surprise.
