Soccer: Juve lose after Ronaldo exit

Bianconeri have one point from first two games

(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 30 - Juventus lost 1-0 at Empoli Sunday two days after Portugal great Cristiano Ronaldo left the Turin giants to return to Manchester United.
    The Bianconeri, who have won nine of the previous 10 Serie A championships, are 12th in the table on one point, five behind joint leaders Lazio, Roma, Inter, Milan and Napoli who have all won their first two games.
    Lazio beat Spezia 6-1 at the Olimpico with last year's Golden Boot winner and Euro 2020 champ Ciro Immobile getting a hat-trick to move within five goals of Biancocelesti legend Silvio Piola as the Roman club's all-time top scorer.
    Lazio sit top of Serie A on goal difference from city rivals Roma who won 4-0 at newcomers Salernitana.
    The Giallorossi are equal on goal difference to Inter who won 3-1 at Verona with new signing from Lazio Joaquín Correa netting a fine brace.
    Milan are next on goal difference having thumped Cagliari 4-1 at the San Siro thanks to a brace by former Arsenal and Chelsea France centre-forward Olivier Giroud.
    Napoli are fifth on goal difference after winning 2-1 at Genoa.
    At the other end of the table, below Juve on 1 point are five clubs who have yet to garner a point: Torino, Verona, Salernitana, Genoa and newcomer Venezia, which is last on goal difference. (ANSA).
