Roma vs Juventus ended in a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olympico in Roma as the defending champions dropped their first points of the season.

Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed both the equalizers for Juve, one from a spot-kick while the other from a trademark header to cancel out Jordan Veretout's first-half brace.

Andrien Rabiot handed the ball inside the 18-yard area as Roma were awarded a penalty on the half hour mark.

Veretout was lucky to have converted the resulting kick after Wojciech Szczesny got a hand to it. 1-0 it was.

The Bianconeri were also awarded their own spot-kick in a similar fashion as Lorenzo Pellegrini handled the ball inside the box.

Ronaldo scored and put Juve back on level terms in the 44th minute but Veretout made sure Roma had the lead before the break.

The Frenchman got an assisted pass from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and finished off a swift counter-attacking move as Roma took a 2-1 lead into the break.

Andrea Pirlo's men were down to ten men two minutes after the hour mark as Rabiot was shown another yellow card, then a red after his harsh tackle on Mkhitaryan.

But the Serie A champions had other ideas as Ronaldo headed home a pin-point cross from Danilo to make it 2-2 in the 69th minute.

Roma and Juventus shared the spoils as both teams settled for a point at the Stadio Olympico in Rome.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Miralem Pjanic has admitted that though Cristiano Ronaldo was disappointed with his departure at Juventus, but endorsed his move to Barcelona.

The pair had successful spells with the Bianconeri, winning two Serie A titles following the arrival of the Portuguese superstar from Real Madrid in 2018.

Ronaldo spent nine seasons at the Spanish capital but his bitter rivalry with Lionel Messi and Barcelona would have made the 35-year-old make a negative comment about the club.
