Juventus 1 Lazio 2: Immobile condemns champions to rare home defeat Matthew Scott Last updated 2 years ago 02:01 10/15/17 Getty Images Juventus lost at home in Serie A for the first time in over two years as Ciro Immobile scored twice in a 2-1 Lazio success. Ciro Immobile struck twice and Paulo Dybala missed a penalty for the second Serie A game in succession as Lazio won 2-1 to hand Juventus a first home league defeat in 42 games.Dybala’s spot-kick woe came deep in stoppage time after referee Paolo Silvio Mazzoleni had used the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system to rightly award Juve the chance to claim a point following a reckless challenge from Patric on Federico Bernardeschi.But Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha dived low to his right to push Dybala’s effort away before the final whistle went to condemn the Bianconeri to a first home defeat in Serie A since August 2015.

Juve’s dominance at the Allianz Stadium has been one of the cornerstones of their six successive Serie A titles, but a growing sense that their Scudetto monopoly could be under serious threat will only increase after this eye-catching result.The hosts had won their last six league meetings with Lazio to nil, and were on a revenge mission after their stunning stoppage-time defeat to Simone Inzaghi’s side in the Supercoppa Italiana.Douglas Costa opened his Juventus account, while Gonzalo Higuain bizarrely and inadvertently hit the bar from a yard out as Massimiliano Allegri’s men dominated the opening half.But Lazio had designs on upsetting the champions once again and former Juve youngster Immobile struck twice inside seven minutes after the break to turn the game on its head and put the visitors on course for their first league win over Juve in 14 years.Both goals came as a result of creaking defensive play between Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli and, having spurned a two-goal lead against Atalanta last time out – a game in which Dybala was foiled from 12 yards to snatch a win – questions may be asked of Allegri as Napoli’s spectacular start to the season ramps up the pressure.97′ #STRAKOSHA !!!!!!!!!! LA PARATA DEL NOSTRO NUMERO !!!!!!! #JuveLazio — S.S.Lazio (@OfficialSSLazio) October 14, 2017 Allegri had opted to bench Dybala, despite the Bianconeri star failing to play a minute for Argentina during the international break, with Costa and Mario Mandzukic flanking Higuain in attack.With five Lazio players strung in front of a back three, chances were at a premium for the hosts, but they converted their first clear-cut opportunity.Sami Khedira’s snapshot drew a fine save from Strakosha, only for Costa to snaffle the rebound – the goal upheld by VAR after replays showed Bastos had played him onside on the far side.Strakosha denied Khedira more decisively with 10 minutes to play in the opening half, palming the German’s blistering 30-yarder around the post.The Allianz Stadium was collectively astonished when the score remained at 1-0 soon after when Higuain charged down Strakosha’s clearance from no more than a yard out, only to see the ball incredibly rebound clear off the crossbar.Lazio reached the interval having shown little sign of breaking their drought against the champions, but they pulled level just two minutes into the second half, Immobile curling beyond Buffon after he pulled away from Barzagli to latch onto Luis Alberto’s pass.Strakosha denied Higuain one-on-one as the striker’s luckless game continued and Lazio stunned the home crowd soon after, Immobile again splitting the defence and rounding Gianluigi Buffon, who could only trip the striker.Immobile picked himself up to send Buffon the wrong way and put the rarest of wins in the minds of Lazio fans.15 – C. Immobile has scored 15 goals this season in all club comps – currently the best tally for a player of the top-5 Euro leagues. Bomber— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) October 14, 2017 Allegri called for Dybala as Juve’s attempts to get back into the game came to nought and he was soon in the thick of the action, seeing a cross to fellow substitute Bernadeschi just hooked clear by Stefan Radu.Dybala was denied by the post with a fizzing half-volley in the first minute of stoppage time, but looked set to be the hero when substitute Patric suffered a brain freeze with time almost up.With the stage set, Dybala fluffed his lines again, Strakosha denying the South American to move Inzaghi’s men level in the table with Juventus, who now look on anxiously as Napoli look to extend their advantage at the top against Roma.Key Opta stats:- 783 days have passed since Juventus’ previous defeat at home in all competitions (Aug 23rd 2015 v Udinese): since then, 57 games on home soil without losing (50 wins, 7 draws).- Lazio’s last win away to Juventus in Serie A was in December 2002: since then, 10 defeats and three draws in 13 league matches in Turin.- The last player to score a brace away to Juventus in Serie A was Sulley Muntari in October 2013.- Juventus conceded two goals in a home league game for the first time since April 2015 (vs Fiorentina).- Lazio have scored 21 goals so far: only in 1942/43 had they netted so many goals after the first eight Serie A games.- Paulo Dybala has failed to score two consecutive penalties after he had converted all his previous penalty kicks in Serie A (13 out of 13).- Gonzalo Higuain has failed to score in three consecutive home league appearances for the first time since January 2015. read more
Junior forward Chimezie Metu throws down a dunk in a game against Cal State Fullerton at the Galen Center. Photo by Will Alpert | Daily TrojanEarly on, it’s been a tale of two narratives for the No. 10 men’s basketball team.In USC’s season-opener against Cal State Fullerton (0-2), the Trojans looked like a top-10 team nationally, as they routed and doubled up the Titans in dominant fashion, 84-42.But in USC’s most recent showing, they appeared to struggle to surmount a scrappy, and possibly overlooked, North Dakota State (0-2) team. Ultimately, USC mounted a 24-9 run to finish regulation before coming away with the 75-65 victory over the Bison this past Monday. Unlike the win over Fullerton, the performance against North Dakota State did not feel like that of a top-10 team.“It was good to see our team be able to pull out a late rally and come away with a win like that (against North Dakota State),” said senior guard Jordan McLaughlin, who scored 12 points against the Bison. “But it’s still a lesson to us. You can’t come out and give anyone a chance to beat you. You’ve got to come out playing hot.”USC will continue its non-conference schedule as it takes on Vanderbilt this Sunday in what will be the team’s first road trip of the season.The Commodores have split their first two games of the regular season, and are coming off a 69-60 loss to Belmont on Monday. Vanderbilt will host UNC Asheville on Friday before taking on the Trojans at home on Sunday.USC’s first Power-5 opponent of the regular season will be Vanderbilt this Sunday. Vanderbilt, which has qualified for the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons, returns three of its four top scorers from last season. Sunday’s matchup between the Trojans and Commodores will be the first time the two programs play one another since the 1975 season.“We’re looking forward to the first road trip,” junior forward Chimezie Metu said. “[Vanderbilt] is a good team who plays in a strong conference. It’s a good early test for us that will help us be ready for the later games this season.”In USC’s win over North Dakota State this past Monday, junior forward Bennie Boatwright recorded a career-high 28 points. Boatwright is the team’s leading scorer through two games this season (20.5 points per game).“[Boatwright’s] improved in the offseason,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “He’s more explosive, he’s quicker and he’s a year older.”USC’s season-opening victory over Fullerton saw Metu record his first double-double of the season. Metu totaled a game-high 18 points (7-of-14), and a game-high 10 rebounds.Last season saw Metu lead the team in rebounds, averaging 7.8 rebounds per game. The trend has continued, as Metu leads USC in rebounds through two games this season (8.5 rebounds per game).In the paint, Metu will have to deal with Vanderbilt senior forward Jeff Roberson this Sunday. Roberson, who is averaging a double-double through two games this season (13 points, 11 rebounds), is the Commodores’ primary weapon in the paint.Sophomore guard De’Anthony Melton, who has not played in any of the Trojans’ games thus far due to what the team has called an eligibility issue, will reportedly be held out again against Vanderbilt. “We’re very hopeful that he will be back out there as soon as possible,” Enfield said when asked about a possible return date for Melton.Melton, who started last season for USC, is being held out in the wake of the team’s involvement in an FBI investigation on associate head coach Tony Bland, in which Bland allegedly facilitated payments to two USC players or recruits.The Trojans look to get off to a strong start on the road this weekend against Vanderbilt. Last season’s USC team went 6-5 on the road.“Vanderbilt was an NCAA Tournament team, and it’s always a tough place to play at,” Enfield said. “We’re excited to see if we can go and get a quality win on the road.”
