1 min read

Champions Juventus suffered their first Serie A defeat of the season when they crashed 3-0 at home to lowly Fiorentina after having Juan Cuadrado sent off after 18 minutes on Tuesday.

Dusan Vlahovic stunned the Turin side by putting the visitors ahead in the third minute before Cuadrado was shown a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Gaetano Castrovilli.

The Juve defence, shaky throughout the match, gifted Fiorentina a second when Alex Sandro put through his own goal in the 76th minute and five minutes later Martin Caceres scored their third after Leonardo Bonucci lost possession.

The defeat left Juventus fourth with 24 points after 13 games, seven behind leaders AC Milan, while Fiore are in 15th place on 14 points after winning for the first time since Cesare Prandelli returned for a second stint as coach one month ago.
