Serie A: Juventus 2 Chievo 2

Juventus gave up a two-goal lead as their hopes of claiming a European spot took a blow after a 2-2 draw with Chievo in the Serie A.Luigi Del Neri’s team had gone 2-0 up in Turin on Monday when striker Alessandro Matri found the net 10 minutes into the second half, only to concede twice in as many minutes to settle for a point.

Veteran forward Alessandro Del Piero opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 13 minutes, days after signing a one-year contract extension with the club.

He set up Matri for the second as Juventus looked set to narrow the gap on sixth-placed Lazio to one point.

But goals from Colombian striker Fernando Uribe and defender Gennaro Sardo had Chievo level after 69 minutes.

Juventus could not find a winner, leaving them three points adrift of Lazio and five from fourth-placed Udinese with two games remaining.

The point means Chievo are guaranteed to be in the top flight next season after shooting seven points clear of the drop zone.
