Lacklustre Juventus were held to a 1-1 draw by Hellas Verona in Serie A on Saturday after Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener was cancelled out by a towering header from Antonin Barak.

The result leaves Juve in third place on 46 points, three behind AC Milan and seven adrift of leaders Inter Milan after 23 games, while Verona are ninth with 35 points from 24.

League top scorer Ronaldo fired in his 19th goal this season early in the second half but Barak guided home a 78th-minute equaliser as the champions' poor run of away form continued.

Andrea Pirlo’s side have picked up four points from their last four league games on the road, and the woodwork saved them twice against a spirited Verona side who deserved a point.
