Despite taking the lead through Matthijs de Ligt, Massimiliano Allegri’s men lose more points in the chase for the top four.

Juventus’ slender Serie A title ambitions were further harmed by Torino, who fought back to secure a deserved 1-1 draw in the derby on Friday night.

Matthijs de Ligt, a Dutch defender, put Juve ahead in the 13th minute by connecting with a Juan Cuadrado free kick at the far post.

Torino fought back well after falling down and equaled their more illustrious neighbors in terms of effort and intelligence, eventually outplaying them in the second half.

They equalized when Josip Brekalo sprinted to the byline and fired a ball back into the box, which star striker Andrea Belotti finished on the volley after coming close on several occasions.

Torino continued to cause issues for the hosts until late in the game, but they were forced to defend with their backs against the wall deep into stoppage time before celebrating a well-earned point.

After 26 games, Juventus sits fourth in the table with 47 points, eight points behind leaders AC Milan, who travel to bottom-placed Salernitana on Saturday. Torino is in 10th place with 33 points.
