Juventus dropped points for just the second time this season in Serie A when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Lecce. Paulo Dybala's penalty put the champions in front early in the second half but Lecce's captain, Marco Mancosu, quickly replied with a spot kick of his own. It was Lecce's first home point of the campaign. Juventus, who remain unbeaten in the league under Maurizio Sarri, came into the game on the back of a seven-match winning run in all competitions. They struggled to find a breakthrough against the hosts in the absence of the rested Cristiano Ronaldo, but Sarri said he had been right to leave the forward at home.
