Striker Antonio Sanabria soon headed the Torino goal before throwing himself on a sloppy back pass from Dejan Kulusevski in the first minute of the second half to shoot his side forward

Ronaldo headed from close range to equalize but was marked offside before a VAR review reversed the decision and allowed the goal

“It’s a very important point for us and the situation we went through. I’m sorry we didn’t take all three points home, but I think we have to be happy with our performance”, said Sanabria to DAZN

Juve slipped to fourth place with 56 points, Napoli in fifth place, against whom they face on Wednesday, and nine behind leaders Inter, who will play against Bologna later on Saturday

Pirlo wasn’t endorsed by U.S. midfielder Weston McKennie, who broke national lockdown rules by throwing a dinner party with teammates Arthur Melo and Paulo Dybala during the week All three were omitted as punishment

Juve got off to a strong start and Chiesa shot a low shot between Salvatore Sirigu’s legs from a narrow angle to get them forward, but Torino was equal in the 27th Minute over when Wojciech Szczesny parried a shot in Sanabria’s path for an easy finish

The Paraguayan international scored his second goal within 13 seconds of the restart as he anticipated Kulusevski’s pass, sped into the box and defeated Szczesny on his near post

Sirigu brilliantly denied Ronaldo with a fingertip but couldn’t do anything about the Portuguese striker’s close range header that was eventually given after a VAR consultation

Turin had one more thanks to Sirigu when he shot a Rodrigo Bentancur shot on the post, while Szczesny made up for his previous mistakes by making good saves to late the efforts of Sanabria and Daniele Baselli

“Unfortunately, these errors occur a little too often when we lose concentration,” Pirlo told DAZN

“We need to understand that we can’t lose focus for even a second. The goal is to stay as focused as possible because every time you make a mistake, it’s only right that you pay for it “
