Serie A results: Juventus salvage draw against Benevento. Inter are second in table after a 3-0 win at Sassuolo.
Juventus missed the chance to close up on the Serie A leaders after a 1-1 draw at promoted Benevento – where Alvaro Morata scored and was later sent off.
Morata put the champions, with Cristiano Ronaldo rested, in front after 21 minutes, but Gaetano Letizia equalised on the stroke of half-time.
Paulo Dybala could not find a late winner, and Morata was shown a red card for arguing with the officials at full-time.
Juventus sit fifth, while Inter are second after a 3-0 win at Sassuolo, where Alexis Sanchez had put them in front after just four minutes.
Atalanta – winners at Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday night – suffered a 2-0 home defeat by Verona who scored twice in the second half through a penalty from Miguel Veloso and Mattia Zaccagni’s late effort.
