Juve held as Lazio slip up

Lazio were beaten at home by Chievo on Saturday but Serie A leaders Juventus failed to take full advantage at home to Genoa.

The Turin club could only draw 1-1 with Genoa, meaning their advantage over the third-placed Roman club is six points rather than the eight it could have been.

On a night when former France striker Nicolas Anelka was reported to be signing for them, Juve went ahead through Fabio Quagliarella in the 54th minute, but were pegged back by Marco Borriello's 68th-minute leveller.

Earlier in the day, Alberto Paloschi sealed a smash-and-grab 1-0 win for Chievo, who needed just one sight of goal to snatch the points against a wasteful Lazio.
