Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi spies title challenge after Juventus shock

Lazio came from behind to beat Juventus 3-1 and hand the Turin side their first defeat of the season on Saturday, scoring the two decisive goals in the final 20 minutes after Juan Cuadrado was controversially sent off.

Juventus who have won the last eight Serie A championships are now second place in the table after 15 games so far.

Cristiano Ronaldo put Juventus ahead at the Stadio Olimpico when he picked up a Rodrigo Bentancur cross to tap in after 25 minutes.

However Luiz Felipe hit again for the Romans in entrance of 60,000 followers simply earlier than the break.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic brilliantly scored from Luis Alberto's lofted pass, and Felipe Caicedo struck deep in added time to secure Lazio's first home league win over Juve since 2003. Sergey Milinkovich Savich gave Lazio the lead in the 74th minute, while Felipe Caisedo scored another goal in the second half injury time to ensure the team's 3-1 victory.

"This is an excellent period for us", said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi. Six weeks ago people said we weren't getting results, but I remained calm. Piotr Zielinski saved Napoli with a late goal that salvaged a point for the visitors.

Ancelotti's side are seventh in the league - 17 points behind leaders Inter Milan - and will bid to seal a Champions League last 16 berth at home against Genk next week.

"So I feel involved in the project especially at this moment". Eight-time defending champion Juventus' team is second with this defeat.
