Juventus squandered their chances of going eleven points clear at the top of the Serie A table as the Italian champions were held to a 3-3 draw by Parma on Saturday.

Former Arsenal man Gervinho emerged as the saviour for his side as he found the net twice to steal a point for Parma after they were two goals down in the second half of the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock in the 36th minute before netting the Bianconeri's second goal in the 66th minute. 

Manager Massimiliano Allegri was left fuming after his men squandered their two-goal lead stating that basic mistakes stopped his team from securing all three points.

Speaking to DAZN (via Goal), he said, "It was the first time this back four had played together and we didn't help the centre-backs, always leaving them in one-on-one situations."

"They need to realise there is no shame in hoofing the ball into the stands if needs be."

"At least we gave those who complained we weren't entertaining enough something to enjoy."

"Beautiful football doesn't [always] pay off, at the end of the day you've got to just kick it away from your goal."

"We lowered our guard after going 3-1 up and then again on the final ball for the equaliser. You cannot play with that attitude in the 93rd minute with the ball at the corner flag."

"It was conceptually the wrong thing to try to keep that in play. Just kick it out."

Despite the lost opportunity, new recruit Ronaldo managed to get to the top of the goal-scoring charts in the league, having now scored 17 goals so far this campaign.


Fans have since reacted to his achievement on Twitter:


Despite the draw, Juventus still sit at the top of the Serie A table, nine points clear from closest rivals Napoli.

The table-toppers will attempt to extend their lead again when they face Sassuolo next Sunday.
