Udinese 2-1 Juventus: Seko Fofana strikes in the stoppage time as Juve's wait to lift the title continues

Udinese came from behind to register a 2-1 victory over league leaders Juventus on Thursday evening. 

Matthijs de Ligt put the league leaders into the ascendancy with a screamer from distance, but the hosts hit back through Ilija Nestorovsk and an injury-time strike from Seko Fofana. The win means its Udinese's first home victory since January that comes against the league leaders. 

They're now seven points clear of the bottom three with three games left to play and Juve's wait to lift the title continues.

Juventus took the lead just before half time thanks to Mathew De Ligt's amazing strike. Udinese cleared a cross, but it fell to De Ligt who took a touch before smashing a low driven shot that arrowed into the bottom corner. 

In the second half, Udinese were level through Ilija Nestorovski. A beautiful curling ball in from the left wing by Sema was met by a thunderous diving header from Nestorovski at the far post.

In the stoppage time, Udinese turned the game around as Fofana drove through the middle of the pitch, cut in on his left foot, and tucked the ball into the net under the arm of Szczesny. It was really a huge goal for Udinese.
