Juventus continued their march to Serie A title but in an unconvincing fashion that saw them being held to a 3-3 draw by Sassuolo on Wednesday and thus extending their winless run to three matches now. The defending champions though started in blazing style taking a 2-0 lead inside the first 12 minutes before Sassuolo drew level and eventually went a goal ahead.

While Juventus are still seven points clear at the top, second-placed Atlanta have upped the ante. They thrashed Bresica 6-2 on Tuesday after holding Juventus for a 2-2 draw.
Atlanta next face Hellas Verona on Saturday while Juventus square off against Lazio on Monday.
The draw ended Sassuolo’s run of four straight wins but they continue to be unbeaten in seven games and next face Cagliari on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Lazio were held to a goalless draw by Udinese to take back the second spot and currently trail Atlanta by a solitary point.
Lazio were just one point behind Juventus when the season resumed but a spate of indifferent performances has seen them widen the gap to eight points now.
