Cristiano Ronaldo extended his scoring run in Serie A after finding the net against Verona in gameweek 24.
Ronaldo's 49th minute goal wasn't enough though as Juventus were held by hosts Verona 1-1.
Antonin Barak's header canceled out the lead Ronaldo had provided the Turin giants.
The result leaves Juventus seven points adrift of leaders Inter.
Here are the details.
How did the match pan out?
Juventus saw Ronaldo score the opener as he slotted home with a first-time finish from Federico Chiesa's pass.
However, the visitors faded from there on and didn't provide much impetus.
Verona cashed in and equalised through Antonin Barak's header from Darko Lazovic's cross.
Juve managed to hold on in the end with Wojciech Szczesny denying Lazovic a winner.
