No player managed to replace his essential position today, and the game was goaless for it.

The Blaugrana rested the likes of Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Luis Suarez, Arthur Melo, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, and Philippe Coutinho as the huge Champions League clash against Manchester United beckons.

And naming an experimental young team backfired as SPAL came from behind to win 2-1, meaning Juve must wait to clinch an eighth consecutive title.

"So it's nice when you can have that battle on the pitch and then obviously there's full respect after the game because ultimately you're just trying to do your best and enjoy the game".

Defender Leonardo Bonucci was also rested along with Blaise Matuidi, Alex Sandro, Mario Mandzukic and Miralem Pjanic, with forward Federico Bernardeschi coming off the bench late in the game.

Juve can still seal the title at home next weekend when they host Fiorentina, or even sooner if Napoli fail to beat Chievo on Sunday.

The young Italy worldwide became the youngest player to score in four consecutive Serie A matches, having scored six in as many games, and played in just eight this season. The 19-year-old was industrious with and without the ball and certainly did not seem intimidated by a few heavy challenges.

"We'd played Wednesday [against United] and we have the second leg on Tuesday".

SPAL equalised four minutes into the second half when a Pasquale Schiattarella corner was headed in by Bonifazi past goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Lazio are now six points behind Milan, although have played a match less.

Leonardo Semplici dogged side also have history against them, as they have beaten Juventus just once in their history, way back in 1957.

What this means is clear Messi has a far greater shot at glory in 10 weeks' time than his old rival Ronaldo.

"If it was a group phase, where one point would be a positive result".

With Shaw unfortunately awarded the goal, Suarez's Champions League drought away from home continued.

The Red Devils now find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table as they aim to try and break back into the top four before the season is out.
