Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Juventus secured a scarcely deserved 2-2 draw with Roma after Adrien Rabiot was sent off on Sunday.

The Serie A champions cruised to victory against Sampdoria in Andrea Pirlo's first game in charge last weekend but they looked badly off the pace at Stadio Olimpico against a Roma side full of verve, vigour and no little skill.

Jordan Veretout opened the scoring early on from the penalty spot before adding a second in first-half stoppage time, just moments after Ronaldo had drawn Juve level with a spot-kick.

Rabiot was dismissed for a second yellow card shortly after the hour mark but, as is so often the way, Ronaldo rose highest to power home a header seven minutes later and seal a point for the Bianconeri.

Roma started brightly and should been in front after 12 minutes but Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired straight at Wojciech Szczesny after an exhilarating run from inside his own half.

The hosts did forge ahead shortly after the half-hour mark when Veretout squeezed home from the penalty spot after Rabiot had blocked the Frenchman's powerful shot with his arm.

That woke Juve from their slumber and they pulled level shortly before the interval, Ronaldo slotting into the bottom-right corner from 12 yards after Lorenzo Pellegrini had handled the Portugal superstar's pass inside the area.

Andrea Pirlo reveals he will REST Cristiano Ronaldo this season

  Andrea Pirlo reveals he will REST Cristiano Ronaldo this season Andrea Pirlo appears to already be very comfortable in his new role as Juventus manager, and may even take the surprising decision to rest Cristiano Ronaldo at times this season. Ronaldo isn't one to sit on the sidelines, but with the star man turning 36 this season, there comes a time where even his legs may need a break.'When it comes to less important games, we'll try to give him a rest,' Pirlo told Sky Sports Italia.

Roma vs Juventus ended 2 -1 in favour of the Bianconeri as they moved two points on top of the league table ahead of Inter Milan. Two first half strikes from Merih Demiral and Cristiano Ronaldo put the champions in a commanding position but Diego Perotti's penalty was not enough to salvage a draw.

Veretout restored Roma's advantage two minutes later, however, taking advantage of generous Juve defending to collect Mkhitaryan's pass in acres of space and slot past Szczesny.

Edin Dzeko squandered a golden opportunity to add a third shortly before the hour mark, clipping the outside of the post from 10 yards with scarcely a Juve defender in sight.

The visitors' task was made harder in the 62nd minute when Rabiot was given his marching orders after picking up a second yellow card for a foul on Mkhitaryan.

Juve's numerical disadvantage was of little concern to Ronaldo, though, who towered above a posse of Roma defenders to seal a point from Danilo's cross in the 69th minute.
