Juventus have fallen to their first loss of the season after three glaring errors contributed to a 4-2 defeat at struggling Sassuolo in Serie A, including a bizarre late own goal.
Bianconeri goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny first gifted the home side the lead when he failed to make a routine save on a shot from Armand Lauriente in the 13th minute. Another mistake from Szczesny gave Sassuolo a 3-2 lead in the 82nd and Juventus then added a comical own goal in injury time.
Szczesny left his goal to take a free kick near the corner flag, passing the ball across the pitch to Gatti as Juventus tried to launch a final attack in search of an equaliser.
However, the defender came under quick pressure and passed the ball back toward the goal - seemingly forgetting that his goalkeeper was not there - and it bobbled into the empty net.
It was Juve's first loss of the fledgling campaign after three wins and a draw.
Rafael Leao appears back to his best and the AC Milan forward helped the Rossoneri bounce back from a disappointing week with a 1-0 win over Hellas Verona.
Leao scored the only goal of the delayed match in the eighth minute to help his team get back to winning ways.
Milan were humiliated 5-1 by Inter Milan in the city derby last weekend before being held 0-0 by Newcastle in their Champions League opener on Tuesday.
Milan moved level on points with league leaders Inter, who play at Empoli on Sunday.
Lazio continued to drop points in the league after being held 1-1 by Monza.
Ciro Immobile gave Lazio an early lead from the penalty spot but Roberto Gagliardini equalised for Monza, who also had two goals ruled out for offside.
Immobile hit the post in the second half.
