Mirko Vucinic gave Juventus the lead in the seventh minute but Andrea Cossu leveled two minutes into the second half.

Juventus moves a point clear of AC Milan ahead of the Serie A champion's derby match against Inter Milan later.

Udinese lost pace with the top two as Genoa came from behind to win 3-2. Udinese had hopes of getting something from the game when Genoa captain Marco Rossi was dismissed 15 minutes from time and Antonio Di Natale converted the resulting penalty, but it was not to be.

Francesco Guidolin's team is three points behind Juventus. Lazio is two points further back.
