Rossoneri slip further behind rivals after another defeat.
Juventus clinched a 3-2 win over rivals AC Milan in Turin on Sunday night, with Giorgio Chiellini’s third goal ultimately deciding the game.
The Bianconeri fell behind to an early Sulley Muntari strike, but responded well in light of criticism this past week and raced into a 3-1 lead.
Philippe Mexes was sent off in the second half, but is likely to receive further punishment after officials missed the Rossoneri defender striking Chiellini in the penalty area in an off-the-ball incident.
Muntari grabbed a second goal late on to give the visitors hope of snatching a point, but it wasn’t to be as Cristian Zapata sent a header sailing over the bar in injury time.
The pressure continues to build on Massimiliano Allegri after a string of disappointing results to start the season, while he will hope the return of several injured stars after the international break will aid his cause.
Meanwhile, opposite number Antonio Conte will have been delighted with his team’s reaction after a difficult week in the press, and they continue to stay on the heels of Serie A leaders Roma.
