Serie A: Juventus 1-2 AS Roma

[Sunday, January 24, 2010 ]

John Arne Riise scored an injury-time winner to give AS Roma a 2-1 win over Juventus and pile the pressure on under-fire Bianconeri coach Ciro Ferrara.

Veteran forward Alessandro Del Piero gave the home side the lead with a fine goal in the 51st minute, but Francesco Totti equalised from the penalty spot in the 68th minute.

Juve went down to 10 men with eight minutes to go when goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for a professional foul on Riise outside the area when he was through on goal, and the Norway defender took advantage by heading home David Pizarro's cross in injury time.
