Rubinho and Evra see red as Serie A champions Juventus slump to Roma defeat


Juventus had two men sent off as their dismal start to the Serie A season continued at Roma.

The champions, who lost their opening match at home to Udinese last week, went down 2-1 at the Stadio Olimpico and had Rubinho and Patrice Evra sent off in the final quarter.

Miralem Pjanic opened the scoring for Roma with an impressive free-kick just past the hour mark and, after their opponents had seen back-up goalkeeper Rubinho dismissed from the bench for dissent – and Evra follow to leave them down to 10 men, Edin Dzeko headed home with 11 minutes remaining to double the advantage.

Paulo Dybala pulled a goal back in the 88th minute and the visitors launched a belated battle for an unlikely point. However, it did not come and Juve, who won the league by 17 points last season, find themselves without a point from their first two games of this campaign.
