  What rivals can stop Juventus winning 10th straight Serie A? ALVISE CAGNAZZO: Italian giants Juventus are no longer the firm favourites to march towards a 10th consecutive Serie A title with Inter Milan having closed the gap. Juventus took a risk by appointing rookie Andrea Pirlo as their new manager to replace Maurizio Sarri after underwhelming last season - getting knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage.As well as Inter, the likes of Lazio and Atalanta will argue their case to battle it out for the Serie A crown as players from Italy's top clubs look to stake their claim for a spot in the national team under Roberto Mancini.

Cristiano Ronaldo dragged Juventus to a point as the Serie A champions almost slipped to defeat at Roma in their first away game of the season Others echoed the view that Ronaldo is carrying the Italian giants. "The way Ronaldo is wasting his career with Juventus is really annoying," said one.

Cristiano Ronaldo believes the 2-2 draw at Roma could ‘prove to be an important point’ after Juventus went down to 10 men. The Bianconeri twice got back on level terms after Jordan Veretout goals, with a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and towering header, even after Adrien Rabiot was sent off.

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores a late header for Serie A champions Juventus to deny neighbours Torino a first derby away win in 24 years. Sasa Lukic's low shot after a Miralem Pjanic error had given Torino hope of a memorable victory against their rivals. But they can take consolation from the fact this point

Juventus are level with Roma once again thanks to the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo , who scored his second with a brilliantly taken header. With 20 minutes left to play, we still have every chance of winning this encounter, although Roma will be distraught to have lost from a winning position against

The second goal of the evening for Ronaldo, and already his third in two days, proof that this new Juve, where Morata made a particularly discreet debut, still depends a lot on "CR7".

Even if Roma have finally launched their season after the initial cruel defeat on the green carpet, the Giallorossi, with a Jordan Veretout double scorer, will be able to harbor regrets as they had gained the ascendancy over the champion.

Edin Dzeko, back at the forefront of the Roman attack a few days after having had to give up his hopes of a transfer to the Bianconeri, in particular wasted a nice break point shortly before the hour mark.

And it is Veretout, man in the shadows whose role of the evening was above all to stop the launches of Juve, who this time shone with a penalty obtained and transformed (31st), after a hand from Rabiot, and an insane sprint to restore the advantage to the Romans just before the break, while Ronaldo had already equalized on penalty meanwhile.

  Pirlo's Juventus are reborn: How boss is washing away Sarri's lethargy ALVISE CAGNAZZO IN ITALY: Andrea Pirlo is rebuilding Juventus by merging Antonio Conte and Louis van Gaal's philosophies together, and he has enjoyed quite a start.

- 38 goals! -

Four more goals in a particularly prolific day: 38 goals scored in the first 9 matches. A festival that owes a lot to the thunderous entries of Inter Milan (4-3 against Fiorentina) and Atalanta (4-2 in Torino) on Saturday but also to the promenade of Naples on Sunday against the fragile Genoa (6-0 ).

After having largely contributed to the initial victory of Napoli thanks to his tonic exit from the bench, the Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen brilliantly released his first tenure.

If he has not yet scored, he has largely contributed, through his activity and his races, to wearing down the defense of Genoa and freeing up spaces from which his partners have happily taken advantage, and in particular an untenable Mertens.

It was after returning from the locker room, when Naples led 1-0 on a goal from Lozano at the start of the match, that the Genoese defense exploded. Zielinski, served by a magnificent heel from Osimhen (46th), opened a second ordeal period for Genoa, which would make the Neapolitan attackers happy except ... Osimhen.
