Udinese win Juventus to stall the trophy.

Juventus missed out on the chance to wrap up the Serie A title as they fell to what boss Maurizio Sarri called a “messy” defeat at struggling Udinese.

Juve, who have been Italian champions for exactly 3,000 days, need to win one of their final three games to win their ninth title in a row.

They led through Matthijs de Ligt’s powerful drive. But Ilija Nestorovski headed in an equaliser before Seko Fofana’s brilliant winner in injury time.

As Juve pushed for a winner, Fofana ran from the halfway line, beat Alex Sandro for pace before cutting inside De Ligt and slotting the ball under Wojciech Szczesny.

Juventus only need three points to seal an unprecedented ninth consecutive Serie A title but they are out of form.

They play Sampdoria on Sunday although could be champions before then if their rivals lose their weekend matches.
