We recap Wednesday's results.

Juventus 1, Sassuolo 2

Massimiliano Allegri's men tasted defeat after a 10-match unbeaten run as they went down to Sassuolo to halt the Bianconeri's recent rise.

Simeone stays hot, Hellas Verona hands Juventus second straight defeat

  Simeone stays hot, Hellas Verona hands Juventus second straight defeat Two crucial mistakes gave Hellas Verona an early advantage and Juventus took too long to respond, falling to ninth in the league table.There was plenty of the same mistakes and frustrations Juventus has dealt with all season long that eventually allowed the hosts to grab an early advantage. But it was not just about the Juventus’ mistakes as Verona looked the better and more dangerous team for much of the first half and probably for most of the match. Things never seemed to be in sync for Juventus, defensively, in the attack or especially in the midfield.

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.

Cuadrado’s late stunner gets Juventus back on the winning track

Juventus finished off its fifth 1-0 victory of the season and grabbed three points in the league for the first time since Oct. 17 to move back into eighth place, level with Fiorentina on points.

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.

Atalanta vs. Manchester United result: Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice to rescue Man United against Atalanta

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
