Cristiano Ronaldo became the first Juventus player to score in 10 consecutive Serie A games, but could not help his side to victory as they slumped to a 2-1 shock defeat against Verona.
The Portuguese has been in superb form for Maurizio Sarri's side and opened the scoring at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi Stadium with a well-taken 65th-minute goal.
The goal saw his tally rise to 20 for the season in what is turning out to be a hugely impressive campaign.
His latest scoring feat also saw him join an elite class in Serie A, which has only Gabriel Batistuta and Ezio Pascutti.

His scoring exploits have not only surprised football fans, as Ronaldo recently admitted that he never saw himself being that prolific at his age.
"At 35? I thought I was going to be a fisherman in Madeira," he said to Canal 11.
"This never came into my mind. I wanted to be a professional footballer, but I didn't think I was going to win everything I've won.
"To play at Juventus gives me the chance to win it again. We know it's difficult, it depends on many factors, but it's possible because we have a good team.
"We must take one step at a time going forward."
Ronaldo and company will have a chance to bounce back to winning ways when they play Brescia in the league next weekend.
