Juve go top of league

Turin giants Juventus share the Serie A lead with Udinese after both earned a point from away fixtures on Sunday while Genoa lost 2-1 at Chievo.
Juve are top on goals scored following a 1-1 draw at Catania while Udinese were held 0-0 away to Cagliari.
The visitors wasted a glorious late chance to win in rainy Sicily when Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal skied a chance from 15 yards with the goal at his mercy.
Juve fell behind midway through the first half as Alejandro Gomez crossed from the right and Gonzalo Bergessio got in front of his marker to turn it in at the near post.
Milos Krasic equalised for the visitors just four minutes after the restart with a shot from 20 yards that Mariano Andujar should have saved.
The Serbian winger had another opportunity after a mazy dribble but this time the goalkeeper was alert to the danger.
Udinese kept their unbeaten run going as they held on for a point in a largely uneventful game in Sardinia.
Earlier in the day Davide Moscardelli scored with a flying header with virtually the last touch of the game to knock 10-man Genoa off the Serie A summit.
Genoa had led the table on goals scored at the start of the day but now trail the two leaders by a point.
They took the lead through Argentine Rodrigo Palacio but succumbed to an equaliser from Sergio Pellissier before substitute Moscardelli's dramatic late intervention.
Pellissier also missed a penalty after Genoa had Dario Dainelli sent off for a foul on the forward inside the box.
Having beaten Napoli 1-0 at home in mid-week, it was the second game in a row Chievo had defeated the league leaders.
"It's true but that's just coincidence," said Chievo coach Domenico Di Carlo. "It was a great win against an excellent side and playing good football."
