The most shocking result of the weekend, as Juve suffered a rare defeat. The Old Lady were even down 3-0 at some point, but the consolation goal added some respectability to the scoreline. The result notwithstanding, they still remain top of the table but the defeat means their lead has been cut to four points.

Roma 3-2 Pescara

Roma closed the gap on Juventus to four points, after the Biaconneri suffered a rare defeat. The capital club had to dig in to get this win, as they were seriously pushed by Pescara.
