Rome: Gianluigi Buffon was sent off and Juventus was held to 1-1 at Lazio on Saturday, ending the two-time defending champion's 12-match winning streak in Serie A.
It was the second disappointment this week for Juventus at the capital's Stadio Olimpico, after being eliminated from the Italian Cup with a 1-0 loss to Roma on Tuesday. Still, Juventus holds a nine-point lead over Roma, which visits Hellas Verona on Sunday.
Buffon was shown a red card for taking down Lazio center forward Miroslav Klose in the 24th minute and Antonio Candreva converted the ensuing penalty kick. Fernando Llorente equalized for Juventus in the 60th with a header following a cross from Stephan Lichtsteiner.
