Torino 2-1 Juventus

Torino came from behind to beat runaway leaders Juventus to secure their first Turin derby victory for 20 years.

Juve would have wrapped up a fourth consecutive title with a win, coupled with a Lazio defeat, and led when Andrea Pirlo curled home a free-kick.

Matteo Darmian levelled in style as he chipped the ball into the box with his first touch from a cross and lashed home with his second.

And Fabio Quagliarella tapped home against his old club for a famous win.

At least 10 Torino fans were injured in the first half when a paper banger exploded, causing splinters from seats to hit supporters.

Second-placed Lazio drew 1-1 with Chievo, meaning a Juventus win would not have secured the title anyway.

But for Juve, the game was about more than the title as their 17-match unbeaten run and seven-game winning streak in the derby came to an end.

And they almost rescued a point late on, just moments after Josef Martinez had a goal disallowed for Torino.

Alessandro Matri's cross hit the post and Simone Pepe was unable to turn in the rebound.

In injury time, Pirlo had a glorious chance to level but shinned his shot from 18 yards out, firing well over.

In Rome, Lazio led Chievo through Miroslav Klose but Alberto Paloschi levelled.

Lazio are one point above city rivals Roma in the battle for the final automatic Champions League spot.

Sixth-placed Fiorentina suffered a surprise 3-1 home defeat by Cagliari, who close the gap on safety to seven points.

The visitors, in Gianluca Festa's first game in charge, scored one of the goals of the season. Diego Farias ran from his own half, skipping past a defender with a backheel and then nutmegging another to fire home.

Elsewhere, Antonio Nocerino scored the only goal as bankrupt Parma, who are being funded by the league to complete their fixtures, beat Palermo 1-0 to delay their inevitable relegation by a few more days.

Europa League chasers Genoa beat Cesena 3-1, while 37-year-old Luca Toni scored twice as Verona beat Sassuolo 3-2.

German Denis scored an injury-time equaliser as lowly Atalanta drew 2-2 with Empoli.
