Carlos Tevez curled a free-kick over a Roma wall for his 15th goal of the season that took him top of the Serie A scoring charts. Rudi Garcia's men had drawn six of their last seven league games but had never drawn six times consecutively at home, until Monday. Roma started with influential midfielders Radja Nainggolan and Juan Iturbe on the bench while Juventus were without Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba -- two of their most creative players -- as they sought to make it two wins from two over the Giallorossi following a bad-tempered 3-2 win in Turin early in the campaign.

Sixteen members of a breakaway Amish community from eastern Ohio are scheduled to be resentenced in Cleveland after a federal appellate court overturned their hate crime convictions.
