Stunner: Frosinone earns 1st ever Serie A point at Juventus

ROME (AP) -- Promoted Frosione earned its first ever Serie A point in stunning fashion Wednesday, scoring a last-minute equalizer for a 1-1 draw at four-time defending champion Juventus.

Midfielder Leonardo Blanchard, who has been with Frosinone since the small club located near Rome was in the third division, leaped over Paul Pogba to head in a corner two minutes into added time at the Juventus Stadium.

Simone Zaza had put Juventus ahead early in the second half.

With only one win from its opening five matches, Juventus fell 10 points behind leader Inter Milan, which maintained its perfect record with a 1-0 win over injury-hit Hellas Verona.

Felipe Melo, the midfielder who followed manager Roberto Mancini from Galatasaray to Inter, scored shortly into the second half with a crisp header.
