Juventus 1-0 Milan

Paulo Dybala scored the only goal at the Juventus Stadium

Recovering champions Juventus beat AC Milan to move up to sixth in Serie A.

The hosts made it three wins in a row to move to six points from top, as Paulo Dybala chested Alex Sandro's cross down to volley past 16-year-old Gianluigi Donnarumma.

AC Milan, who drop to seventh, almost levelled in injury time but Gianluigi Buffon touched Alessio Cerci's powerful strike from distance away.

Earlier Roma missed the chance to go top after drawing 2-2 with Bologna.

Adam Masina gave Bologna the lead but Bosnian pair Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko scored a penalty each to put Roma ahead.

Roma were angry the game was allowed to continue on a waterlogged pitch and Mattia Destro's 87th-minute penalty rescued a point for the struggling hosts.

Roma are now level on points at the top with Inter Milan and Fiorentina, who are both in action on Sunday.
