The Bianconeri had wrapped up their 29th Scudetto title last weekend and their next target were beating their record of 91 points in 2006 under Fabio Capello.

However, it proved to be a damp squib as as they were shocked by the visitors who took the lead a fine solo goal from Ibarbo after 12 minutes.

The Colombia striker collected the ball on the edge of his own box from a Juventus corner before galloping the length of the pitch.

Ibarbo then turned on the turbo to burst between Claudio Marchisio and Andrea Barzagli before moving inside the box and squeezing the ball under goalkeeper Marco Storari.

It was a sensational solo effort that evoked memories of George Weah's goal against Verona in 1996.

Juve finally grabbed a deserved equalizer when substitute Mirko Vučinić tapped home after Arturo Vidal's header was tipped to his feet by Cagliari goalkeeper Michael Agazzi.

"I picked up the ball on the rebound after a corner kick for Juventus and I tried to run as fast as possible," Ibarbo told the club's website. "I saw that I was alone and then I headed straight for the goal.

"The shot did not come out very well because I was too tired after having a 60 meter race. Thank God the ball went in, however, despite it was touched by the goalkeeper."
