Serie A: Juventus held by Samp in six-goal show

September 12, 2010 22:57 IST

Juventus's big spending failed to pay dividends again on Sunday when their defensive weaknesses were exposed in an exciting 3-3 home draw with coach Luigi Del Neri's former side Sampdoria.

Nicola Pozzi hit a double and Italy forward Antonio Cassano was on target as the visitors frustrated the man who steered them to a fourth-placed finish last term.

Goals by Claudio Marchisio, Simone Pepe and Fabio Quagliarella at least made sure the Turin side collected their first point after they lost their opener 1-0 at Bari despite almost a whole new team of signings following last season's miserable campaign.

Chievo Verona top the standings with six points after maintaining their perfect start with a 3-1 victory at Genoa.
