Watch Miralem Pjanic make Gigi Buffon look the fool with a perfect free-kick

After four successive Serie A titles, it seems things aren’t going all Juventus’ way at the start of the new campaign.

Last season saw the Bianconeri start off with an eight-match unbeaten run, seven of them wins, before suffering their first defeat of the season in late October and not losing again until April.

But after falling to Udinese in their home opener, Max Allegri’s team did the unthinkable and started the season with back-to-back defeats for the first time in their history.

Juve had two men sent off in the 2-1 defeat, including former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, but the inspiration for Roma’s victory was this sumptuous strike from Miralem Pjanic.

Suddenly that Champions League final seems such a long time ago.
